We still love the cheesy stuff we grew up on, but there’s plenty of room to play when it comes to the beloved classic. Start with the crust—you can do amazing things with grains and veggies. Be creative with a spread or sauce, add exotic toppings (like these creative, healthy combos), and you’ve got an upgraded, delicious pie that’s nutritious, bold, and totally unique.

Pick a grain—any grain—to whip up a healthy crust that packs nutrition in every bite. Start with quinoa, farro, buckwheat, or black rice, then add almond flour, eggs, and salt and pepper to turn your usual side dish into the perfect pizza base.

If you’ve had your fill of zoodles, but love having this green squash in your rotation, try making a zucchini pizza crust. (Or even put zucchini in your oatmeal for some “zoats.”)
