The 30-Day Bigger Leaner Stronger Transformation
Pizza doesn’t have to be unhealthy when you use high-quality dough and choose wholesome toppings.
If you want protein, meat and cheese are the way to go. How about a full serving of different veggies? It’s easy to add the best of the farmers’ market – including zucchini and kale – to your savory pie.
Variety in homemade pizzas doesn’t have to be limited to what you put on top, either.
Replace a soft, pillowy dough with something thin and crispy instead or do away with the traditional wheat crust altogether, using vegetables like roasted zucchini or baked sweet potato as a base.
Select the right combo to suit your dietary needs and you can have pizza as frequently as you’d like!
If you’re looking for a creative way to enjoy eating veggies, all you have to do is layer on your favorite pizza flavors.

Vegetarian pizza goes gourmet with this recipe, which wows in terms of flavor and presentation.
This stuffed pizza ends up looking a lot like a real pie – or maybe a pizza cake – and although it looks tough to execute, the only secret is using a round baking pan for the form.

2 tsp. dry active yeast
Pinch of granulated sugar
1 cup warm water
3 cups curly kale
2 tsp. capers
4 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
