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.
