Choosing the healthiest toppings is just one way to make a better-for-you pizza. Start your meal makeover from the bottom up by swapping your typical crust with these creative substitutes.
1. Cauliflower pizza crust
The most well-known of the veggie crusts, cauliflower is a popular option for gluten-free and Paleo eaters, as well as omnivores who just want to fit more vegetables into their diet. This recipe from Table.io creates a thin, crunchy crust strong enough to hold your toppings but light enough to ward off post-meal guilt.
2. Sweet potato pizza crust
Everyone’s (second) favorite fall vegetable can also build the foundation of your pizza. Unlike the cauliflower crust, this recipe from Farm Fresh Eats isn’t a low-carb substitute, but it gives a typically unhealthy food an antioxidant boost, thanks to the beta-carotene in the sweet potatoes. If you’re looking for a gluten-free alternative, try this recipe from CallieEngland.com.
3. Zucchini pizza crust
This zucchini crust from Kalyn’s Kitchen is made in a similar way as the cauliflower pizza crust. The zucchini is grated, drained and, in this case, combined with mozzarella, almond meal, Parmesan, oregano, garlic powder, salt and egg.
