I’m sure we’ve all been there at least once! Most people love pizza, and not having to rack your brain about what to cook is so tempting. And deciding to work on living a healthier life and eating clean might make you think you can never have pizza again. Thankfully, that’s not true!
We believe in everything in moderation here at Clean Food Crush, and we also believe in enjoying a delicious pizza every once in a while! But there are healthier ways to have this yummy meal!
Here are twenty of CleanFoodCrush’s FAVORITE pizza recipes:
Easy Homemade Cauliflower Pizza
Perhaps the most popular way to make a healthy pizza is using a cauliflower crust base. And there’s a good reason for that!

It’s nicely crispy and just the right amount chewy with a fantastic flavor and texture.

Skillet Zucchini Mini Pizzas
Here’s a super simple idea for your weekends or snacks if you have any get-togethers coming. And they’re fun to make!

Sun-dried Tomato + Kale & Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken
I promise you’re not going to be disappointed with this recipe. It’s packed full of protein and complimentary flavors. Who knows…maybe you’ll have a new Friday night regular!
Sweet Potato Pizza Snacks
You might not expect sweet potatoes and pizza flavors to go together, but I swear, they do! And the best part is sweet potatoes are considered a “superfood” because of all the vitamins and minerals they contain. For example, 1 sweet potato has almost 400% of your daily vitamin A requirements! They also contain vitamins B, C, and D and a wide range of minerals.
Zucchini Pizza Casserole
My family completely devoured this casserole! The flavors and melty satisfaction of pizza with some veggies and protein make for a fantastic recipe perfect for feeding a whole family. Or, make it for your guests the next time you’re hosting!

Mini Superfood Breakfast Pizzas
Here’s another way for you to cheat the system and have pizza for breakfast! This is definitely not the traditional pizza, but it’s just as delicious. And it’s super fun and a perfect breakfast for enjoying with the kids!
Pizza Stuffed Anaheim Peppers
These stuffed peppers can be a snack, a side, or a little appetizer for parties. The Anaheim pepper is one of those peppers that are just big enough to be stuffable and incredibly flavorful. Plus, its mild heat makes it a family favorite − most enjoy its slight kick and flavor!
Zucchini Crust Pizza
If you’re not a fan of cauliflower crust, or even if you just need a change, then this zucchini crust pizza is the thing for you! It may not be as crispy, but it still tastes terrific and has quite an impressive nutritional scoreboard.
Prosciutto Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Okay, this is the THIRD recipe on this list with a cauliflower crust, so I want to take a moment and explain WHY these pizzas are so popular. Cauliflower is a great alternative to the traditional bready crust because it doesn’t have a strong taste and crisps up while cooking. PLUS, Cauliflower is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich vegetable that may boost both heart and brain health!

This is perfect weekend party food and a unique spin on a family favorite. Set up your grill and get ready to impress your friends, family, and guests with this flavorful Mexican pizza!

One-Pan Protein Packed Pizza Inspired Bake
You’ll need to use a huge, oven-safe skillet or Dutch oven for this recipe, but it is worth it! Not only does it taste incredible, but the quinoa in this recipe provides a TON of nutritional value. It’s gluten-free and high in protein, fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E, and various beneficial antioxidants, making it a total superfood!
