If you think pizza isn't allowed on a diet, then you haven't tried my favorite diet-friendly pizza tricks yet.

Like most of you, I love pizza but I don’t love how bloated and heavy it makes me feel, so I created a few little tricks that many people use and now enjoy it whenever I want.

These diet-friendly pizza tricks are easy to do and can really help reduce the amount of starchy, refined carbs, excess fats, and unhealthy ingredients found in commercial or frozen pizza products.

Try these tricks out this week and even throw a pizza party with your friends to get them in on the fun!

1. Low-Carb Crust

Low-Carb Crust

Low-carb pizza crusts are incredibly popular right now and they’re one of the most important parts of making a diet-friendly pizza.

To make a low-carb crust, you can use either ground flax, mushrooms, eggs, cheese, or some people even use cauliflower.

Here are several ideas if you need great options: lowcarbdiets.about.com.

2. Use Plain Tomato Sauce

Use Plain Tomato Sauce

Instead of buying pizza sauce, which is often full of sugar and added sodium or oils, just use tomato sauce.

It will still give you that rich marinara flavor and you can add dried Italian herbs to it in order to ramp up the flavor.

Feel free to buy a generic brand if you like, though organic tomato products are the healthier option.

3. Veggie It up

Veggie It up

Focus on creamy, dense veggies to add to your pizza.2

This will keep it healthy while still making it satisfying.

I like cubed sweet potatoes, onions, garlic, diced tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and mushrooms.

Other great options are peppers, broccoli, and even shredded carrots.

Experiment with new flavors and try different ones each time you make your pizza to see which ones work best for you.2
