Roasted garlic gives such great flavor and aroma to food. It actually makes sense to spice up a healthy pizza with roasted garlic to make it so much better. You can finish off your roasted garlic spinach white pizza with a delicious smoothie.

A chicken alfredo and bacon pizza does not sound so healthy. But you can make it a notch healthier by making the crust gluten-free.
9. Chicken Pesto Artichoke Naan Pizza
In this healthy pizza recipe, whole wheat naan substitutes the crust. Instead of tomato sauce, the pizza is smeared with pesto and then topped with chicken, artichokes, and cheese. It’s a quick meal which is both healthy and savory.
10. Light Pineapple, Chicken & Bacon Pizza
Pineapple, sharp Manchego cheese, shredded chicken, and crispy bacon come together to give you this delicious pizza.
