Bake squash in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 25 minutes. When cool enough to handle, scoop out the strands of squash with a spoon and place in an 8-inch square baking dish.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Cook and stir turkey sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until turkey is browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir pizza sauce, spinach, red bell pepper, applesauce, basil, garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper into turkey mixture. Spread mixture over squash in baking dish.

Pour eggs over turkey mixture and toss egg, turkey mixture, and squash together until egg is just combined.

Bake in the preheated oven until mixture is bubbling and eggs are set, about 1 hour.
