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.
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.
