15 Wonderful And Healthy Pizza Recipes

Le’s be honest, people: who doesn’t love pizza?

The moreish, doughy crust; the stringy, incredibly satisfying cheese; the toppings that keep you coming back for more… pizzas are the ultimate indulgence and have their place on many a household table. However, for all their deliciousness, they sadly aren’t the healthiest option on the menu and they often don’t appear in healthy eating plans with good reason: the combination of trans fat-rich cheese, sugar- and carbohydrate-rich pizza crust, and often highly unreasonable (but oh-so tasty) toppings isn’t exactly conducive to a trim waistline! Well, rejoice: I’m here to tell you that even if you’re trying to watch your weight, the pizza ban is officially lifted!

With a few tweaks in the crust and toppings, it is absolutely possible to make pizzas healthy — without taking away their delicious signature flavours. These 15 wonderful healthy pizza recipes are packed with nutrient-rich ingredients and taste so good that you won’t even miss your usual takeaway fare. Some of the recipes will even have you saying, “I can’t believe this isn’t real pizza!” Ready to tuck in?

The Pizzas with Healthy Toppings

We all love pizzas, but let’s be honest: unless you go out of your way to choose healthy ingredients, most toppings aren’t exactly conducive to a balanced, healthy diet. These delicious pizzas are different: the chicken Florentine flatbread pizza combines protein-rich chicken and spinach for a healthy party in your mouth, while the simple vegan pizza, the whole-wheat crust pizza with roasted vegetables and the butternut squash and kale pizza pile heart-healthy, fibre-rich vegetables high. The easy, cheesy healthy homemade pizza uses a simple French loaf as its base and lets you add all your favourite veggies — what more can you ask?

            The Pizzas with Healthy Crusts

            While the toppings definitely contribute to whether a pizza is healthy or not, the crust also plays an important role – a fact that the creators of the following delicious recipes have all understood! The flax and parmesan pizza crust offers a tasty, gluten-free alternative to the usual doughy offerings, while the chickpea pizza brings a subtle flavour to the table that perfectly complements the spinach and harissa. The ingenious low-carb cauliflower crust and the paleo pizza crust both offer all the taste, minus the heavy, bloat-inducing carbs, while the delicious Mediterranean quinoa pizza combines fibre and vegetable protein in one tasty, healthy crust.

                      These delicious and über-healthy alternatives to pizzas taste like the real thing but take on a different shape to the delight both our tastebuds and eyes! Packed with protein and fibre thanks to the quinoa, these gluten-free quinoa pizza bites will have you coming back for more, while the stuffed portabella pizza offers all the nutrients of the humble mushroom, combined with authentic pizza flavours. Don’t let the fact that the dish is vegan deter you: you won’t be able to tell the difference!

                      The high-protein no-crust pizza bites are a great option if you’re watching your carbohydrate intake (they are particularly well-suited to a high-fat ketogenic diet), as are the eggplant pizzas, which also add extra vitamins and fibre to the table thanks to the vegetable; and finally, the cauliflower pizza casserole is a heart-healthy, comforting version of your favourite Italian dish that’ll have you begging for seconds — without the bloated feeling!
