Everyone loves pizza, but not everyone loves the weighed-down feeling that results when you eat a ton of greasy cheese and pepperoni. This diet-friendly avocado pizza recipe is the secret to having your pie and feeling great too.
The base is a whole-wheat crust, but feel free to swap it out for a cauliflower crust if you're gluten-free. Toppings include creamy avocado, flavorful kale-cashew pesto, peppery arugula and silky almond milk cream cheese.
Not only does this pizza have just 100 calories per slice, it's also rich in healthy monounsaturated fat, thanks to the avocado. In addition to good-for-you fat, each slice has four grams of protein, which can help keep you satiated longer.
If you're feeling ambitious, go ahead and make your pesto from scratch (you won't regret it). Another pro tip: Toss the arugula in a bit of fresh lemon juice and salt before putting it on the pie to add an extra layer of acidity to the dish.
