This list is ready to take the place of your tired old pizza-delivery or freezer-meal routine. There are so many crust options (from actual chicken to personal-sized deep dish), your head will spin... Here are our top HG pizza recipes!

 
 
Hungry Girl's Pizza-fied Chicken
  Pizza-fied Chicken

Entire recipe: 282 calories, 5.75g fat, 868mg sodium, 10g carbs, 2g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 44g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

This recipe is, if we may say so ourselves, a stroke of genius. Pound a chicken breast cutlet flat, cook it simply in a skillet, and top it like pizza. Voilà. You get the good-for-you properties of lean chicken, packed with pizza taste. Everybody wins (and by everybody, we mean YOU!).

 
  BLT Pizza

1/6th of recipe (1 slice from a large pizza): 213 calories, 5g fat, 815mg sodium, 35.5g carbs, 1g fiber, 6g sugars, 7.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

This is one of those spectacular mash-ups with which you can't go wrong. Seriously, we know very few people who would have a problem devouring a BLT sandwich merged with a pizza. (Vegetarians, this is what meatless swaps are for.) Your taste buds are in for a wild ride!

Hungry Girl's Pizza-bellas
  Pizza-bellas

1/2 of recipe (1 pizza-bella): 118 calories, 4.75g fat, 487mg sodium, 7.5g carbs, 1.75g fiber, 3g sugars, 11.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*

Another of our very best alterna-bottomed pizzas! Portabella mushrooms are so low in calories that you can load them up with even the most decadent of pizza toppings and they'll still be guilt-free. Case in point? The Sausage-Loaded Pizza-bellas in HUNGRY GIRL TO THE MAX! This is our original formula, but if you're craving more, check out the "Pizza" chapter of TO THE MAX! for all four Pizza-bella recipes.

 
  The HG Special Pizza

Entire recipe: 285 calories, 8.5g fat, 930mg sodium, 37.5g carbs, 8.5g fiber, 7g sugars, 20.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 7*

Hard-core HG fans know what it means when the words "HG Special" appear in a recipe name... It's a legit favorite of Hungry Girl herself (a.k.a. Lisa). This extra-cheesy pizza is 100 percent worthy of your love as well.

Hungry Girl's Taco-Topped Pizza
  Taco-Topped Pizza

Entire recipe: 300 calories, 7.5g fat, 841mg sodium, 40.5g carbs, 9g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 24.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

The unconventional pizzas at fast-casual restaurants can be mighty tempting, especially when they've got a Mexican flavor twist. We've got several good reasons to resist, with this recipe at the head of the list! The creamy drizzle really puts the decadence level over the top... Wowzers!

 
  Garlic Chicken Pizza

Entire recipe: 320 calories, 7.5g fat, 902mg sodium, 34g carbs, 6.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 32g protein -- PointsPlus® value 8*

Every now and then, we love a white-sauce pizza rather than a tomato one, but those can get really fatty REALLY quickly. That's why you need a recipe like this. The Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges are essential for pasta Alfredo swaps, and they're phenomenal here too. And garlic, well, who doesn't love garlic? (OK, maybe not garlic breath, but that's what mints are for.)

Hungry Girl's The Great Greek Pizza
  The Great Greek Pizza

Entire recipe: 277 calories, 4.75g fat, 990mg sodium, 38g carbs, 8.5g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 19g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Veggie pizza can be boring, but not this one. With feta cheese, black olives, the perfect blend of fresh veggies, and the right hit of spices, this pizza tastes anything but diet-y. Shout-out to the pita crust -- high-fiber pitas make perfect 'za bottoms!

 
 

American Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Entire recipe: 245 calories, 4g fat, 864mg sodium, 31g carbs, 6g fiber, 2g sugars, 24g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

Hot wing goodness on a pizza! This is the right way to handle two cravings at once. Love that protein count, not to mention the creamy cheese layer and the Parm topping!

Hungry Girl's Mini Deep-Dish Spinach Pizzas
  Mini Deep-Dish Spinach Pizzas

1/12th of recipe (1 mini pizza): 154 calories, 4g fat, 578mg sodium, 20g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

No "Best of... Pizza Recipes!" email would be complete without a deep-dish entry. Of course, with all that crust, the calories tend to pile up fast. But when you use the right ingredients and keep the portions controlled, your deep-dish fix can be totally guilt-free. Sink your teeth in and smile!
