Pizza Margherita – Healthy

Who doesn’t like pizza right?

The problem: pizza is one of the biggest diet killers. Mainly because you can’t stop after one slice right? Me either.

The solution: figure out health(ier) versions of the American favorite.

Healthy Margherita Pizza Recipe:



  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust (try to find whole wheat) I could only find regular
  • 2-3 large tomatoes
  • 1 cup Reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Seasonings (garlic powder, basil, Italian blend, salt and pepper)

Step 1: Preheat the oven to what the pizza dough directions say.

Step 2: Spread out the pizza dough onto greased cookie sheet (or if you’re to make me jealous: a pizza stone) .

Step 3: Pre-bake dough for about 5 minuets.

Step 4: I spray the pre-cooked dough with a tiny-tiny bit of olive oil cooking spray. Then season it up! Sprinkle your favorite seasonings on the dough. I used the ones listed in the ingredients above.

Step 5: (pic below) Slice the tomatoes and spread onto dough.


Step 6: Sprinkle with cheese.


Step 7: Bake for an additional 7-10 minutes until crust is cooked and cheese is melted.


Step 8: Cut or tear the fresh basil and sprinkle on top. Drizzle about 1-2 tbs balsamic vinegar.



Step 9: Cut and enjoy!


I cut mine into 12 squares.
