5 Healthy Homemade Pizza Recipes

January 8, 2021

Traditions start at home, and the best ones begin in the kitchen. Pizza nights are great because whether they are being prepared for a party of one or twenty, they create a delicious meal and an experience.

Pizza nights used to be reserved for "splurge nights" or "cheat meals." Those days are history. Pizza does not have to be the calorie-rich setback it once was. With so many healthy pizza recipes, we are sure you will discover a new respect for this Italian favorite. Here are 5 of our favorite homemade healthy pizza recipes.

Homemade Pizza Cooking Tips

While tips and tricks vary by recipe, here are a few of our tried and true pointers to help you create the best pizza pie:

  • Preheat your oven, and we mean HEAT IT UP. Some recipes call for temperatures as high as 550° Fahrenheit.
  • We love using a pizza stone, but an upside-down cookie sheet works as well.
  • When using traditional pizza dough, let it warm to room temperature before you begin working with it.
  • The secret to great dough? Stretch it. That’s right, just like you see in the movies. Go ahead and even toss it in the air. Avoid using a rolling pin on your dough to keep it flexible.
  • Choose lean meats when selecting your toppings. Chicken or turkey pepperoni are both great options without sacrificing any flavors.
