20+ Delicious and Healthy Pizza Recipes Everyone Will Love
1. Healthy Homemade Pizza
Do your kids refuse to eat anything but pizza? I hear you. That’s why this pizza exists.
The crust is whole wheat, and the red sauce has a simple seasoning with zero added sugar.
Customize the toppings with an assortment of veggies – chop them small enough, and nobody will even know they’re there!
2. Chicken Spinach Pita Pizza
Working with pizza dough can be a challenge. So make life easier by swapping it out for whole wheat pitas.
From there, the rest is super easy.
Simply spread on marinara sauce, add a mix of light ricotta and fat-free mozzarella, then evenly distribute the spinach.
Finish with cooked chicken and bake until it’s bubbly. How easy is that?
3. Veggie Pizza
The easiest way to make pizza “healthy” is to load it up with veggies. And this sheet pan pizza is best for a crowd!
Crescent roll dough acts as a flaky buttery crust, saving you time and fuss.
Slather on the ranch dressing-seasoned cream cheese sauce (use light cream cheese) and load it up with toppings.
Broccoli, cauliflower, olives, and bell peppers are all fine choices.
4. Low Calorie Pizza
Here’s a low-calorie option you’ll welcome with open arms come pizza night.
From the crust to the toppings, everything is low-cal. Grab a slice, and it will only cost you 50 calories.
How? Let’s just say, if you haven’t tried that viral 2-ingredient dough yet, now’s the time!
Use turkey pepperoni, or omit the meat to make it vegetarian-friendly.
That’s the beauty of pizza, you can have any toppings you like!
5. Taco Bell Mexican Pizza
I know what you’re thinking, and I agree – Taco Bell isn’t known for its healthy food.
And as it is now, this recipe isn’t super healthy either. But stay with me.
You’ll use tortillas instead of pizza dough, which is lighter already. And you can use veggie-packed tortillas or gluten-free if you like.
From there, if you swap out the beef for lean turkey and use low-fat mozzarella for the cheese, this dish is under 200 calories per serving.
6. BBQ Chicken Pizza
I love all pizza, but BBQ chicken is my jam! And this healthy version has been a staple in my kitchen since the holidays.
The whole wheat crust, low-sugar sauce, and carefully selected toppings make it far more nutritious than most.
It’s got juicy shredded chicken, thinly sliced red onions, and pickled jalapeños. Just watch the sugar content of the BBQ sauce, and you’re all set.
7. The Ultimate Veggie Pizza
How does this get the title of “ultimate” veggie pizza?
It’s all in the medley of roasted goodies, including grape tomatoes, kale, bell peppers, and zucchini.
For a bit of spice, toss jalapeños into the mix – or any pepper you prefer. I adore roasted poblanos!
Even the spinach pesto matches beautifully!
So yeah, I think it’s safe to say this is the ultimate veggie pizza.
8. English Muffin Pizza
These mini pizzas are ideal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. You can have pizza anytime you want and make it healthy too.
When it comes to toppings, the sky’s the limit! It’s a build-your-own sort of thing, so everyone can have it their way.
The key to making it healthy is being smart about the sauces and toppings. But when they’re this little, pretty much anything goes.
9. Banh Mi Pizza
Get ready to experience a fusion of Vietnamese and Italian cuisines with this fun bahn mi pizza.
I’m a big lover of bahn mi sandwiches. But I never thought about turning one into pizza until now.
Use store-bought dough if you can find it, or be adventurous and make your own.
Then, pile on the cheese and pork. Once it’s ready, cover it all in quick pickled veggies and spicy mayo sauce. Yum!
Don’t eat meat? Use tofu instead.
10. White Chicken Pizza
Comfort food meets healthy in this white chicken pizza.
Rather than drowning it in cheesy sauce, the crust is kept light with a simple brushing of olive oil and garlic.
The toppings are also on the lighter side – you’ll need shredded chicken, onions, and fresh Parmesan cheese.
Is your stomach grumbling too?
11. Healthy Spicy Hawaiian Pizza
Some people despise pineapple on pizza, whereas others can’t get enough. If you fall into the latter category, this one’s for you.
After all, what’s better than sweet pineapple with smoky ham?

Sneak superfood greens into your pesto by swapping out the basil for kale. It’s full of vitamins A, C, and K and is a fabulous source of antioxidants and fiber.

Just cover it in fat-free mozzarella cheese, a pinch of red chili pepper flakes, and an extra handful of kale for good measure.
