Salad Pizza

Trying to eat healthy but pizza is calling your name?

I know the feeling.

Salad pizza is the answer. It’s still pizza, without the guilt that comes along with it.

Honestly, I couldn’t live without the sauce and cheese that makes pizza so delicious. But, the salad on top does give it a fresh taste, and a nice crunch. You could very well leave off the cheese to make this pizza even healthier – but what you can’t see can’t hurt you, right?

Never feel guilty again – eat all the salad pizza you want.

The Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 package of pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup spinach/mixed greens
  • 1/2 red onion
  • feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Roll dough on a floured counter to preferred size. Place in greased pizza pan or baking sheet. Pinch ends of dough over ends of pan to form a crust.
  3. Spread olive oil over dough. Add marinara and cheese – spread evenly.
  4. Place pizza into heated oven. Cook for 15 to 18 minutes or until crust looks golden brown.
  5. While pizza is cooking – mix arugula, mixed greens, onion, and balsamic vinaigrette together.
  6. While warm, top pizza with salad mix. Sprinkle feta cheese over pizza.
  7. Enjoy!

This pizza is everything you need – the comfort and deliciousness of cheesy, saucy, pizza…with the healthy and freshness of salad.

Eat it. Enjoy it. Eat it again.
