So without further ado, here's your fantastic recipe!

Heirloom Tomato & Italian Turkey Sausage Pizzettes

Makes 3-4 servings
Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 1 large spaghetti squash
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground dark turkey
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp cracked pepper
  • ½ - 1 cup prepared tomato pizza sauce
  • 2-3 large heirloom tomatoes, sliced  thick
  • Aged Balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped  


  • 9-inch cast iron skillet or a 9-inch baking dish


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. 
  2. Cut off the stem of the spaghetti squash, then cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds with a large spoon. Place face-down right on the oven rack. Bake for 30 minutes, or you can pierce the skin with a fork.
  3. Grease a seasoned 9-inch cast iron skillet or a 9-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  4. Once spaghetti squash is cooled, use a fork to remove into a medium bowl, making “noodles.” Add egg, onion powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Stir to combine. Add to prepared cast-iron skillet or baking dish. Bake for 13-18 minutes, or until golden-brown.
  5. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add fennel seeds & cook a minute until toasty & fragrant. Add olive oil and let heat about 30 seconds before adding garlic, ground turkey, onion powder, salt & pepper. Cook, stirring, until turkey is browned & crumbled.
  6. Top baked spaghetti squash crust with pizza sauce, turkey sausage, & heirloom tomatoes. Bake for 12-15 minutes until tomatoes are roasted.
  7. Top with a drizzle of balsamic & fresh basil.
