Spaghetti Pizza

Don’t swirl it with a fork, instead, cut a slice and take a big bite. Spaghetti Pizza is fun pizza made with cooked spaghetti. A great way to use left over spaghetti. With pesto, fresh mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, it is a foolproof combination of ingredients that makes every bite of this spaghetti pizza quite a mouthful!

Spaghetti Pizza

We eat pasta at least once a week, and often it is with spaghetti and pesto or a simple tomato garlic sauce. And some days when I know that the next day will be a busy one, I make extra and turn it into a Spaghetti Pizza the next day.

Avyan can pretty much survive or pizza and pasta, so you can only imagine his excitement when I combined the both into one dish.

He is also a big fan of cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, which makes this Pesto Spaghetti Pizza a happy meal in our house.

How to prepare this Pasta Pizza ?

The steps are so simple!

  • Roast the cherry tomatoes on a separate pan just for a while.
  • Mix the cooked pasta with the eggs.
  • You need a big skillet to prepare the spaghetti pizza. Rub a little butter on the pan and drop the spaghetti. Press it down to flatten it neatly. And let it cook in low heat. Once you can release the edge, flip it over. Over, just flip it on a plate and then slide it gently to the pan to cook the other side.
  • Once you flip, add the cheese on top, the roasted tomatoes, few basil leaves and cover the skillet.
  • Once the cheese had melted on top, it’s ready to serve.

It doesn’t need any oven and the whole meal comes together in 15 minutes. Even if you have to make fresh pasta, it will still be a very quick meal. A great weeknight fun dinner!

    Kankana….this looks delicious and a nice twist on the pizza. We have a Friday evening ritual, courtesy my teen, of a non-Indian meal and this would be great for such an evening 🙂
