6 ‘healthy’ alternatives on the regular pizza crust

Because we actually always like pizza, but it is not always a smart idea. With these slightly healthier options we believe that all you can eat is totally permissible.

Low carbohydrate pizzas, these are probably not all below. There is one gluten-free, one of vegetables and you hardly have to prepare anything for the other. The most important? They are all delicious.

Spelled is seen as the ultimate ancient grain. This grain contains more nutrients than ‘normal’ flour. A windfall: these original pizzas are made in such a way with only three ingredients.

Gluten-free mini eggplant / zucchini pizzas

This is actually the easiest pizza of all. You cut an eggplant or zucchini in half or along the length. Et voilà! Tip: after cutting the eggplant or zucchini, sprinkle with salt, drain and pat dry with kitchen paper. This way your ‘pizza crust’ stays firm, because the salt extracts moisture.
