Healthy, Delicious Pizza Recipes
The first change you can make to create a healthier pizza is to begin with the pizza dough. Whole wheat pizza dough and whole wheat flat bread circles make a good foundation for a healthy pizza.
By making your pizza at home, you have control over the ingredients that go on top of your pizza. While a tomato-based sauce isn't essential for a pizza, it is one of the most familiar types of pizza sauce. There are numerous homemade pizza sauce recipes available online. You should allow your taste buds the experience of enjoying a pizza with non-tomato based sauces such as white sauce or barbecue sauce. Homemade pesto also makes a good base for your pizza toppings.
When it comes to healthy toppings for a pizza the list of options is almost endless. Unhealthy meat choices can be replaced with toppings such as grilled chicken, grilled turkey or turkey bacon. Meat substitute crumbles can be used to replace ground beef as a pizza topping.
