Who doesn’t love a pizza? It’s a favoured food all over the world but it can also be really unhealthy if you’re not careful about what goes into your pizza. And, so we decided to solve that problem once and for all.
We have come up with a list of 5 tips which will make your pizza just as healthy as a salad..and we’ve included some recipes to go with the tips. So, without any further ado, here is our list of 5 tips to make healthy pizzas (with recipes):
#1) Use Quinoa to make a crust
Quinoa is one of the most in vogue foods today – no matter where you are in the world. And, with good reason. For example, you can use this amazing Quinoa Pizza Crust recipe from Positively Healthy.
It eliminates all the negative effects of your usual pizza crust while also offering the amazing health benefits of Quinoa – and in a pizza to boot!
#2) Make your own Tomato Sauce
Most people just prefer to use store-bought Tomato Sauce on their pizzas but there’s a problem with that – these sauces are loaded to the gills with sugar. Instead, consider making your own tomato sauce.
Not only do you control exactly what goes into your sauce, you get that amazing taste of fresh Tomato Sauce. Smitten Kitchen has a great Fresh Tomato Sauce recipe.
#3) Avocados and Eggs are great toppings
Most people aren’t willing to experiment with pizza toppings, but with just a little bit of effort, you’re able to come up with a much healthier pizza than your usual fare.
Take, for example, Avocados and Eggs. They are both tasty as hell and offer a hell of a lot of health benefits as pizza toppings. You can check out this Avocado with Fried Egg Pizza from Closet Cooking.
#4) Whole-Wheat is the way to go
If Quinoa isn’t really your thing, here’s an alternative. You can make your own Whole-Wheat Dough instead of the White Flour crusts that permeate the market these days.

#5) Mushrooms, Mushrooms, and more Mushrooms!
Mushrooms are one of the most used pizza toppings and with good reason. There are a number of different varieties available and almost all of them are good for you in one way or another.
