Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza

Sautéed onions, prosciutto and fontina cheese flavor this white pizza. Topping the hot-out-of-the-oven pizza with fresh greens and diced tomatoes gives it a delicious, summery twist. We use store-bought pizza dough to keep it quick. Serve with: Crunchy vegetables and your favorite dip.

Green Pizza

Why not use cooler-weather vegetables like broccoli and arugula as an unconventional pizza topping? The arugula adds a slightly bitter, peppery taste—for a milder flavor, use spinach instead. Serve with wedges of fresh tomato tossed with vinegar, olive oil, basil and freshly ground pepper.

Spinach & Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Pizza

This stuffed pizza is filled with crumbled tofu, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, cheese and fresh basil. It’s easy to make stuffed pizza at home. Just roll the crust thin, spread filling over half and fold closed. To use fresh spinach, cook 10 ounces until just wilted; finely chop and squeeze dry. Serve with: Marinara sauce for dipping and mixed green salad.

Pepperoni & Pepper Pizza

Using mini pepperoni slices (or chopping regular-sized slices) allows you to use less pepperoni, but still get plenty of flavor on this pepperoni and pepper pizza. Use green or yellow pepper instead of red, or swap out the pepper for your favorite veggie instead. No time to make homemade dough? Look for whole-wheat pizza-dough balls at your supermarket. Check the ingredient list to make sure the dough doesn’t contain any hydrogenated oils.

Broccoli-Ricotta Pizza

This white pizza features three kinds of cheese—ricotta, Parmesan and sharp Cheddar—and chopped broccoli. Try other vegetables instead of—or in place of some of—the broccoli if you wish. No time to make homemade dough? Look for whole-wheat pizza-dough balls at your supermarket. Check the ingredient list to make sure the dough doesn’t contain any hydrogenated oils.

White Pizza with Clams

Here’s an easy homemade pizza recipe that is a take on white clam pizza, which was first made famous by Frank Pepe of Pepe’s Pizzeria in New Haven, Connecticut. Look for fresh clam strips in the seafood department. You can find them ready to use out of their shells at most large supermarkets. If you don’t want to use fresh, we also like the briny flavor and convenience of canned chopped clams.

Escarole & Turkey Sausage Pizza

The robust flavor of escarole is a brilliant companion for mellow, creamy Gouda cheese and savory turkey sausage in this easy-to-make pizza recipe. If you really want to amp up the flavor, try this healthy pizza with aged Gouda. It has a nuttier flavor that makes this recipe even more mouthwatering.

Think pizza can’t be part of a healthy diet? Well think again! It is possible to have a healthy pizza recipe that is both low in saturated fat and loaded with veggies—and even fruit! Boost the fiber content of your healthy pizza recipes by 50% simply by using whole-wheat pizza dough, which is widely available in supermarkets (check the label and avoid those that contain trans fats). Or make our Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough, which comes together in a snap. Substituting low-fat mozzarella for regular cheese lowers saturated fat and cholesterol. Then pile on the veggies for extra fiber and nutrients. And don’t forget the fruit—pears, apples and pineapple make great toppings too! Make it pizza night tonight with these healthy pizza recipes.

I'm new to this site, and I'm noticing that, even though the recipes are supposed to be healthy, there is no nutritional info attached. Anything with ham is bound to be salty. Why can't I find out how much sodium is in this??

The nutritional information, including sodium, is listed under Nutrition after the preparation instructions in the recipes.
