When I was younger Friday was always my favorite day of the week — not because it was the start of the weekend or because I could stay up later than usual but because it was pizza night! Our household tradition got its start when I used to receive free Pizza Hut tickets for reading in school. I would log all the hours I spent reading books and get coupons for a free one-topping personal pizza in exchange. As a first grader I was so proud that I could buy dinner for my whole family (I read a lot!). I remember telling my mom that I wished every night could be pizza night. She, of course, told me that wouldn’t be healthy!

As an adult, pizza is still one of my favorite meals. But my mom was right; it’s over-indulgent if you have it all the time. One of the best things about pizza, though, is that it is so versatile. A change of toppings or a swap of ingredients can transform a traditional pie into a healthy meal that everyone will enjoy. And, while you probably won’t want to have it every night, these healthier versions make it possible to enjoy pizza a whole lot more often.

How can pizza be keto you ask? Swap your traditional crust with a dough made mostly from cheese and you’ve got a delicious, keto-friendly pie.

An abundance of arugula, chives and artichokes makes this pizza almost salad-like.

This sweet-and-savory pizza is almost too delicious to be healthy. If you’ve never tried pineapple on pizza before, you’re missing out! It’s the perfect complement to salty ham.

A veggie-packed pesto (made with a pistachio, arugula and parsley) goes great on a whole-wheat crust. The best part? You can freeze the dough and be pizza-ready any day of the week.
