Healthy pizza is kind of an oxymoron. You’re not going to find a pepperoni, Italian sausage and extra cheese pie that fits into any diet plan. But healthier pizzas are an option, and not just when you’re making them at home. Aim for wheat crusts, lots of veggies and lean proteins and you’re doing pretty well. Oh, and a serving is one to two slices, not an entire pizza. Split it with friends or save some leftovers.

Find it: Big Tomato Pizza Co., 2613 Ingersoll Ave. You can get Dorritos and hot dogs on your pizza at Big Tomato, but you can balance that out a bit with the Crop Top, which is served on honey wheat. It’s your choice of four veggies, and Big Tomato has a lot of options: peas, broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower, asparagus, artichoke hearts, corn, spinach, carrots and apples are available along with the traditional olives, onions and peppers options. Get the pizza with pesto instead of red sauce for extra flavor and a lot of added nutrients. $15.75 for a 12-inch pie.
