This recipe is usually reserved for Passover, but we couldn’t resist the idea of crispy potatoes as a pizza crust, topped with mozzarella, cheddar, and goat cheeses.

Purple potatoes and romanesco cauliflower might seem like daunting ingredients at the farmer’s market, but this vegan pie is simple to prepare. The earthy vegetables combine with vegan mozzarella cheese and béchamel sauce for a dish that’s pure comfort food (we could see adding real cheese and cream for a more decadent version). This recipe calls for Betty Crocker’s gluten-free pizza crust, you can also use any gluten-free crust recipe you like.

This isn’t your traditional pizza crust, but it’s fun to make, filling, and particularly great for anyone who likes corn meal crusts. It’s also a good way to make use of leftover polenta; you could also save time by cooking the polenta in advance, and letting it set. When you’re ready for pizza, all you need to do is add toppings and wait 25 minutes for it to get golden brown and melty.

We’re all about breakfast pizza, especially when it’s somewhat healthy. If you stick to veggies and eggs for these trippy-looking pies, you can forget about the fact that you just ate pizza for breakfast.

The best part of this sweet potato crust: no need to drain or squeeze out any excess liquid from your veggies, as the starch is very absorbant. This recipe uses artichokes and tomatoes as toppings, but we suggest trying a mix of barbecued chicken, kale, red onions, and smoky gouda, which pair well with the potato’s natural sweetness.

Not only is this dessert pie super easy to whip up, it’s pretty good for you, too! The crust is made from almonds, dates, coconut oil, and cocoa powder, and the topping uses a little cream cheese and Greek yogurt for creaminess and protein. Decorate with your favorite fruits, and you’re all set to indulge.

We know what you’re thinking: There’s no way something this decadent could be gluten free. Oh, but it is. This recipe uses oat flour, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and eggs for its chocolatey crust. For the topping, just mix together salted caramel peanut butter (yes, this exists) with Greek yogurt and chocolate chips.
