Pizza and flatbreads are one of those meals that taste good no matter what you put on them (almost). When I think “pizza,” I usually conjure up an image of something sticky, greasy and bready. Basically, a gut ache. But that doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, there are so many delicious and healthy pizza/flatbread recipes on the web that it was hard for me to narrow it down for you. Here are just a few!
One of the best things about pizza is that there are no rules. Throw whatever you want on it—it’s just bread! Who says fruit can’t be on it? This strawberry balsamic flatbread is something new to try and uses orange zest and goat cheese to boost the flavor. We recommend using a balsamic vinegar glaze overtop so that it won’t make the bread soggy and will have a stronger flavor.
This pizza has it going on. It’s spicy, sweet and colorful. It’s a simple, easy pizza to recreate and pretty foolproof with its ingredients. If you’re vegetarian, just skip the sausage and add some extra chili pepper flakes!
This pizza is extremely easy to make yet full of flavor. You can even throw extra vegetables and fruit on it like eggplant or tomato or whatever you have in your fridge. It’s very adaptable and looks very delicious.
This is the perfect autumn/winter pizza to try out as squash is definitely in season. We eat butternut squash, pumpkins and sweet potatoes but what about acorn squash? This is a great way to try it out…think maple syrup, gorgonzola, mozzarella and some arugula for added flavor!
Like many people, I am a sucker for anything with balsamic vinegar, and this pizza is no exception. There are not many fun ways to eat radicchio or cabbage, but this is one of them. We recommend trying it with a balsamic vinegar glaze instead of the regular vinegar so that it doesn’t make the pizza soggy and has a stronger flavor.
This pizza is found in Smitten Kitchen’s New York Times #2 bestselling cookbook, but she gives it to us online for free. Complimented with scallions to up the flavor and mozzarella to tone it down, this is probably one of the best ways to eat asparagus.
This flatbread is earthy and tangy…and healthy! Don’t like broccoli? We suggest you try it on this flatbread with lemon and goat cheese first. A must try from an award-winning food blog.
You could say this is a worldly pizza. Naan bread gives it an Indian edge while the queso fresco lends it a Spanish flare. Topped with chicken, tomato & mango chutney and spinach, this pizza is full of flavor.
This recipe is easy and simple. Have a mostly-eaten rotisserie chicken or some chicken dinner leftovers waiting in your fridge? Use them on this delicious barbeque chicken pizza with your favorite barbecue sauce, some onions, a little cheese, all on a whole-wheat pizza crust. Mmm!
Whether you’re gluten-free or not, this pizza is worth trying out. Portobello mushroom acts as the pizza crust in this recipe, which means we have a bit more liberty to put whatever we want on top. Likes lots and lots of cheese!
