Life is too short to give up pizza, even when you’re looking to lose weight. But if you use the right ingredients and can manage some self-control, you can eat these satisfying and healthy pizza recipes even when you are looking to slim down.

Pizza isn’t usually the first food you think of when you want to lose weight, but despite its reputation as a late-night binge-worthy food, pizza made right can give you a great dose of veggies and important nutrition!

Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan pizza- I’ve got you covered! The healthy pizza recipes below are made with calories, ingredients, and nutrition in mind so you can enjoy your favorite meal without worry.

Quinoa Flatbread Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

This quinoa pizza crust is incredible! With minimal ingredients and soaked quinoa (always good to soak your grains!) for maximum nutritional power, this little flatbread is super healthy but certainly not lacking in taste & texture.


This Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza with a creamy homemade vegan ranch drizzle and sliced avocado is the dairy-free comfort food of my dreams. Perfect for a Friday pizza + movie night!

My Favorite Vegan Pizza

The BEST vegan pizza is made with a garlic-herb crust, simple tomato sauce, TONS of sauteed veggies, and vegan parmesan cheese. Thin crust, has tons of flavor and is ridiculously satisfying.

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust Recipe (Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Check out this 5 Ingredient Sweet Potato Pizza Crust that actually holds together, that’s fluffy, healthy, and delicious! Vegan, Gluten-Free; this recipe ticks all of the boxes.

Pizza With Pumpkin Marinara Recipe

These pumpkin arugula flatbreads are addictive and light—just watch them disappear when served at a family gathering.
And remember, we’re huge fans of pumpkin because it’s a superfood that packs a nutritional punch of beta-carotene, vitamin A, and fiber.

Dandelion Green Pesto, Fresh Fig and Gorgonzola Pizza with Prosciutto.

As much as I love the dandelion pesto, the figs are still my favorite part of this pizza. Figs, cheese and Italian meats go incredibly well together, and when combined with a little honey + balsamic and some killer pesto, well, you have the perfect pizza!

Winter White Pizza with Delicata Squash & Gouda {gluten-free}

There are less than a handful of colorful toppings, yet they all play an important role. The arugula is the peppery bite to the sweetness of the delicata, the red onion packs a savory jab, and the cheese…..The gouda is so creamy!

Tlayuda (Mexican Pizza)

Rather than making an Italian-inspired pizza for pizza night, try using Mexican flavors instead. This tasty pizza recipe uses mole sauce, queso Oaxaca, and black beans in place of traditional pizza ingredients. Tips: it would be easy to sub the flour tortilla for a GF alternative.
