1. Crust

For an extra-quick crust: use French bread, tortillas, pita or flat bread, English muffins or pre-baked crusts.

For a dough crust:

  • Buy it pre-made—look in the grocery refrigerated case for dough in a bag or can. Check the “use by” date for best results.
  • Buy a dry mix—it will keep longer. Check the “use by” date for best results.
  • Make your own—yeast or no yeast. This might cost the least! Most recipes use simple ingredients you may already have at home.
  • Try our No-Yeast Pizza Crust.

Shape the dough:

  • Roll or press the dough into a flat shape. The more even it is in thickness, the more evenly it will bake.
  • Any shape will do! Try a heart or other fun shapes.
  • Make small individual shapes so each person can choose their own toppings.

2. Sauce

Tomato-based sauces add a vegetable. They may be lower in calories, added sugars and salt than other options.

  • Use a purchased sauce or make your own, or use sliced tomatoes.
  • Make your own sauce with our recipe for Quick No-cook Pizza Sauce.

3. Toppings

  • Veggies and fruit – choose fresh, cooked, canned or dried.
  • Cheese – grate the cheese and sprinkle lightly. Try lowfat cheeses like part-skim mozzarella.
  • Protein (optional) – spread it out and keep it lean.
