Food For Thought: Healthy Pizza Ingredients


I’m convinced that Pizza is my soulmate. It’s the one thing that can always make any bad day transform into something amazing. In fact, sometimes I like to travel to my local Whole Foods just to get my favorite pizza to make everything better.

While I know most will say that “healthy” is never the term to apply to pizza, I beg to differ! Pizza can be healthy! It’s rather simple to swap out favorites for healthier alternatives.

In today’s food for thought, I figured it would be best to share what I consider to be the healthier alternatives to Pizza faves and give you more of a reason to go and order some pizza, just make sure to make it healthy! The Food Gods are watching!

My Lovely Creation

Healthy Pizza Requirements

  • Whole Wheat/ Multigrain Dough
  • Meats: Grilled Chicken, Turkey Sausage, Turkey Pepperoni, or Soy Chorizo
  • Toppings: Veggies, Veggies and more Veggies! (My Faves: Mushrooms, Black Olives, Spinach, Avocado and Tomato slices )
  • Cheese: Low-fat cheese, skim cheese, Daiya Vegan Cheese or (gasp) no cheese! You’d be surprised just how good it can actually be!
  • Sauce: Fresh Tomato, Olive Oil, Hummus (Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it!)

Feel free to comment below if you have any healthy alternatives you like to eat! The great thing about Pizza is that the sky is the limit as to what you can top on your pizza. It never hurts to be bold and try something new every time. You never know what amazing creation you can make 🙂

  1. Do you add the avocado after baking?

      I add it after baking yes! Just because I don’t really like my avocado all heated. It’s def your preference

      1. I haven’t tried it yet, but I was thinking that to add it before cooking would probably not taste right.

        Yeah I personally don’t think it would. I’ve been to pizza places who add avocado on their pizza and it seems as if they wait until after it’s already baked as a last minute topping.
