A Healthier Pizza

Pizza! It is a common addition to anyone's cheat day favorites list, and it is downright delicious. There are so many directions you can go with it from Chicago style to New York style, thick, thin, unlimited toppings. Just talking about it makes me hungry. The great thing about all these options is that you can make healthy versions too.

Pizza comes down to three main parts, the crust, the sauce and the toppings. Depending on your preferences you can modify any or all of these elements to make your pie healthier.


Whole-wheat can take your pie a step in a healthier direction.

Gluten-free crust makes pizza an option for those with gluten sensitivities.

Cauliflower, if you want to make your crust extra healthy make your crust from vegetables such as cauliflower or zucchini.


Fresh is always best. A freshly made tomato sauce can help eliminate extra sugars, and preservatives found in the store bought variety. Plus, when you make it yourself, you can season it exactly how you like it.


Veggies, atop your pizza, is a great place to pack in some extra veggies. Everything from spinach, to an onion, and tomato are delicious on top of a pizza pie.
