This easy skillet spaghetti pizza is a big hit here in this house.  It takes only one pan and about 30 minutes to make which makes it a hit with mommy, too! This is the perfect weeknight meal if you are in a hurry to feed your family.  Make it vegetarian for Meatless Monday if you want, or add sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, etc.  Fresh herbs are a huge plus, however, you can used dried herbs as well.  If you grow your own herbs in the summer, check out my post on how to preserve fresh herbs for use all year long!

Skillet Spaghetti Recipe Makes an Easy Weeknight Meal

Tips for Making This Spaghetti Pizza Recipe:

Homemade spaghetti pizza is a quick and easy weeknight meal.  It is very simple to make but I thought I would share a few tips for making it:

  • You will need to use a saute pan that is about 3 inches high on the sides.  I find that a deep cast iron skillet works well. 
  • Add spaghetti sauce, water, and pasta broken into 2 inch pieces. Don’t forget to break the pasta!  
  • You want most of the liquid gone so keep it covered but cracked a little bit. If it is still too watery just take the lid off for the last 5 minutes.
  • Top with cheese, green onions, and fresh herbs if you are using them. You can also add pepperoni, meatballs, or whatever skillet pizza toppings you are craving.  
  • Broil it a minute or two to brown the top
  • Take your spaghetti pizza out and let cool 10 or 15 minutes before serving.  If you don’t let it cool a bit, it will fall apart more.
