3 Super Easy, Healthy Pizza Recipes (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Option)

dairy freegluten freehealthypizzasummervegan

When you’re in the mood for a dinner that’s one part healthy, one part satisfying, and—most importantly—one part easy, a healthy pizza recipe can really come to the rescue. And because I’m often in the mood for healthy/satisfying/easy dinners, I’ve made three pizzas that deliver strongly on those wishes.

From my bright and zesty Blackberry Pesto Pizza to my quick and easy 5-Minute Enchilada Pizza to my slightly spicy Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza, all three make the perfect weeknight dinner, but they’re also the ideal meal for laidback summer weekends when you don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen.

I’m equally partial to all three, but I’d love to hear which one is your favorite (or which healthy pizza recipe you want me to create next!). Comment below, or DM me on Insta!

Healthy Pizza Recipe: Blackberry Pesto Pizza

One of my followers sent a TikTok of this pizza combo to me and at first I was like “ew,” but then I was like, “this sounds great!” I whipped one up and made Zack try it with me and it WAS great—sweet and salty, bright and zesty. I also LOVE eating pesto because it’s basically a salad’s worth of greens in each super tasty saucy bite.⁣ Basically this is the perfect healthy pizza recipe for summer.

Blackberry Pesto Pizza Recipe

To make it, I pre-baked two Simple Mills pizza crusts, then spread with my green protein pesto (recipe below). I added a sprinkle of Parmesan (you can totally skip it or go for plant-based cheese if you want dairy-free) and some blackberries, sliced in half, then I returned to the oven until the cheese bubbled. Topped it all with some torn basil leaves and fresh ground black pepper and the result was *chef’s kiss* You need to try it!

Protein Pesto:⁣

  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts ⁣
  • ⁣1/2 cup hulled hemp hearts ⁣
  • 2 cups packed basil⁣
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled⁣
  • 1 tablespoon honey⁣
  • Juice of 1 lemon⁣
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt⁣
  • Generous pinch of freshly ground black pepper⁣
  • 1/4-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil ⁣

In a large skillet over medium heat, gently toast the walnuts until fragrant and golden, about two to three minutes. Add to a food processor with the hemp hearts, basil, garlic, honey, lemon, salt, and black pepper. ⁣Drizzle in just enough olive oil while the food processor is running to create a leafy paste. Makes enough to generously top two personal pizzas!!

Watch it being made!

Healthy Pizza Recipe: 5-Minute Enchilada Pizza

Ohhhh boy this pizza!! It has a thin and crispy crust and is so delicious—it tastes just like enchiladas but it actually only takes five minutes to make.⁣ The healthy pizza recipe is based on the crispy cast-iron tortilla pizza in my Healthier Together cookbook, but we are swapping the Italian style and making it into an enchilada version. It’s the perfect weeknight dinner, and it’s especially awesome for kids (or picky husbands) because you can make it fun by customizing the toppings!⁣

5-Minute Enchilada Pizza Recipe

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, drizzle a bit of avocado oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and warm over medium-high heat. Place a tortilla (I like Siete Foods’ cassava or almond flour or Rudi’s Bakery’s spelt) in the pan. Reduce heat to medium and let cook for one minute. Flip the tortilla and cook for an additional minute while you add 2 tablespoons of enchilada sauce (I used the Whole Foods brand one), spreading it all the way to the tortilla’s edge. Remove the pan from the heat and add a layer of pastured raised or vegan cheese and rinsed, drained black beans. I also like to add a sprinkle of salt and a good shake of both onion and garlic powder. ⁣

Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for two to four minutes, or until the edges of the tortilla are golden brown but not burned. ⁣Transfer the pan back to the stove and cook for another one to two minutes over medium heat, until the bottom is browned, but not burned.⁣ Transfer the pizza to a plate and let it cool slightly (it’ll crisp as it cools!). Add toppings—I love cilantro, red onion, and avocado. Then DEFINITELY finish with a squeeze of lime, and enjoy!

Healthy Pizza Recipe: Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza

I’m in this predicament often: I wanna eat veggies (my body is like, please, please, man can not live on cookies alone) but I just like…don’t wanna work for ’em, ya know? ⁣That’s when this healthy pizza recipe comes in handy. It tastes super decadent and fancy, but is really, really easy to make.

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and break a head of cauliflower into florets and toss with avocado oil and salt. Roast until brown, about 20 minutes, depending on how big the florets are. Bake a healthy pizza crust of choice (I used Simple Mills pizza crusts, which I LOVE—I made two pizzas, or the whole box, which was the perfect amount for the whole cauli). Spread a Buffalo sauce on the pizza crust as “sauce” (I love the Primal Kitchen one). Toss the cauliflower with the sauce as well and layer on the crust. Add some quick and easy “ranch” (recipe below) and some sliced green onions, and enjoy!

Quick & Easy Healthy Ranch Recipe

  • 1 5.3-ounce container of unsweetened, plain yogurt of choice (I used the one from Forager Project)⁣
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder⁣
  • 3 teaspoons onion powder⁣
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill (can substitute 1 teaspoon dried)⁣
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives (can substitute 1 teaspoon dried)⁣
  • Salt and pepper to taste⁣

Mix together all ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
