10 Wholesome Pizza Toppings: Elevate Your Healthy Pizza Game

  1. Instead of topping it with cheese and tomato sauce, use your favorite salad (Chinese Chicken Salad, Greek Salad, Arugula Pear and Goat Cheese salad). This will add extra fiber and healthy greens to an otherwise indulgent dish.
  2. Add fresh vegetables like tomato, basil and mushrooms to the top of your pizza. Adding more vegetables to your pizza will reduce the amount of guilt you feel.
  3. Skip the cheese and add some chopped parsley, non-fat Greek Yogurt, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil to the base of the tomato sauce.
  4. For a Japanese-inspired pizza with less fat and more protein, skip the tomato sauce and cheese. Instead, spread a thin layer tuna poke on your crisp crust.
  5. The shaved Brussel sprouts are a healthy and delicious topping.
  6. Sauteed rapini is also delicious. I love bitterness.
  7. Roasted breast of chicken (shredded)
  8. Use sweet potato puree as a base, with a few dollops goat cheese instead of the traditional tomato and cheese.
  9. This pesto is packed with more fiber than traditional pesto.
  10. These simple swaps will make your pizza lighter and less greasy.

You won’t feel guilty if you add things like yogurt or Brussel sprouts to your pizza. Think about using healthy, lean proteins for your toppings instead of fatty, processed meats such as sausage or pepperoni. This can make for a new and exciting way to eat pizza. You can still enjoy your favorite foods while feeling relatively healthy.
