Pizza night is as American as Apple Pie - except apple pie is usually homemade, and pizza usually is not. But it doesn't have to be this way. Healthy pizza recipes are easy to come by. You can make your own dough (see below) or get a head-start with the store-bought kind.
Whatever your method, you're likely to eat a lot healthier. The typical slice of pepperoni pizza has about 400 calories, whereas a slice of thin-crust pizza with a vegetable topping has just 150.
So try one of these delicious healthy homemade pizza recipes for a new twist on pizza night.
