Cauliflower-crust pizza is all the rage (more on that below), but you haven’t LIVED until you’ve wrapped your face around a squash-crust pizza
. The texture is perfection, and the method is even simpler than making cauliflower crust. (No food processor needed.) This one’s topped with fresh basil, but mix things up with your go-to toppings!
Zucchini Pizza Boats
Entire recipe (2 zucchini boats): 108 calories, 4g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 467mg sodium, 8g carbs, 2g fiber, 4g sugars, 10g protein

Only FOUR main ingredients in this 15-minute pizza fix
. One of those ingredients is light string cheese: It’s the perfect way to get portion-controlled cheese shreds. And with such a low calorie count, feel free to make a double
batch and eat it all... We won’t judge!
Entire recipe: 267 calories, 9.5g total fat (5.5g sat fat), 663mg sodium, 21g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 3.5g sugars, 24.5g protein

No, we’re not suggesting you throw a bunch of pizza toppings on a pile of spinach leaves and call it a pizza. (We’re not monsters!) Toss that spinach in a food processor with some egg whites, light cheese, whole-wheat flour, and seasonings, and you’ll have a healthy high-fiber crust! Then
add your toppings, and bake until crispy. Popeye would be proud of this recipe
Entire recipe (6 stuffed mushrooms): 87 calories, 3g total fat (2g sat fat), 229mg sodium, 7g carbs, 1g fiber, 3.5g sugars, 9.5g protein

Maybe it’s a stretch to refer to these Pizza-Stuffed Mushrooms
as actual pizza, but they taste so good, we had to include them! Just three main ingredients and a few seasonings gives you cheesy, saucy, pizza-flavored perfection. And you can chow down on SIX of them for under 100 calories. Of course, if you’d prefer one LARGE pizza-fied mushroom, we’ve got recipes for that
Cutie-Pie Cauliflower-Crust Pepperoni Pizzas
1/6th of recipe (1 mini pizza): 93 calories, 4g total fat (2g sat fat), 312mg sodium, 6.5g carbs, 2.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 8.5g protein

Last but not least, we present to you these insanely adorable cauliflower-crust pizzas
. Cauliflower-crust batter can be a little tricky to work with, but with these minis, it’s super easy to form the crusts. If you don’t feel like chopping up a ton of cauliflower, just pick up a bag of fresh or frozen cauliflower rice
... such a great timesaver!
