My husband would be the first to tell you that, no matter how much I try to eat healthy, I almost always cave to pizza night. Maybe it’s a New York thing. If you’re battling pizza cravings as well, here are some healthier alternatives:
- Tortilla Pizza
- Matzah Pizza
- English Muffin Pizza (whole wheat/multigrain muffins are best!)
- Pizza Rolls (use reduced fat crescent dough)
- Margherita Sandwich
- Margherita Pasta
- Gourmet Flatbread Pizza
- Pizza Stuffed Peppers
- Cauliflower/Zucchini Crust Pizza
- Sausage Pizza Burger – Pile a turkey sausage patty, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and all the veggie toppings you like on a whole wheat bun
All of these recipes can be made healthier with low fat mozzarella cheese (go light!) and homemade pizza sauce. They’re great ways to indulge your craving without completely straying from your nutrition goals. So next time you’re looking to order in, try out one of these recipes instead!
