Pizza Salad! When you’re craving pizza but still want something “healthy-ish” make a chopped veggie salad and toss it on your favorite crust. So delicious!

This Farmers Market BLT and Avocado Chopped Pizza Salad is a deliciously healthy way to throw a pizza party!

What do you think when you hear the words, Pizza Party!!!?

  • A) High carb, cheesy, greasy, {delicious} feast?
  • B) Yummy, healthy, veggie-packed feast?

If you picked the first one…I hear ya’!

And I see no problem with indulging in an occasional slice of A, but if your goal is to eat a little healthier this year, I think you will also be pleasantly surprised by choice B, my Chopped Pizza Salad, as well.

The reason for this pizza party???

The Recipe ReDux of course!

This month’s challenge was to give the delivery guy {or gal} a night off, and come up with our own healthy pizza creation…

Pizza Party! Give the delivery guy a day off; whether it is for Friday Fun Night with the kids, a pizza chef competition among friends, or for Super Bowl Sunday (February 2). Share your healthy pizza recipe that we can all look forward to after a long week…or a long day.

Pizza night is a favorite tradition in our house because you can pretty much make it your own.

  • Kids aren’t craving salad on their pizza? No problem. Put out the toppings THEY love {sliced black olives anyone??} and let them go to town with their own pizza party creation while you load yours up with whatever healthy goodies your body is craving right now!
  • Don’t eat bacon? A-OK. Try tempeh bacon, coconut bacon (love this recipe from Food to Glow!), pine nuts, or perhaps some crispy rosemary chickpeas. Yum, yum!
  • Trying to cut back on carbs? This Chopped Pizza Salad is equally delicious on top of your favorite cauliflower crust (I usually get mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • Don’t have all the veggies on hand? No problem. You can enjoy the chopped pizza salad year-round by choosing whatever veggies are in season at your local Farmer’s Market.
  • It’s low FODMAP diet friendly too!

Bottom Line: Pizza definitely has its place in a healthy diet, especially when it’s topped off with heaps of gorgeous veggies. Enjoy guilt-free!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 17 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 servings



  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup golden balsamic vinegar
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • 1 cup crumbled cooked bacon ~8 slices
  • 2 cups chopped hearts of romaine lettuce
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped radicchio
  • 1/2 cup chopped red cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion tops
  • 1/4 cup sliced and chopped fennel bulb
  • 1/4 cup chopped radishes
  • 1/4 cup dressing {recipe above}, or to taste

Pizza Salad

  • 2 pre-baked pizza crusts, i.e. Banza Chickpea Pizza Crust
  • 4 cups chopped salad


  • Make the dressing by combining the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a jar, and shake until well combined. Set aside until ready to use. Note: you will have extra dressing left over.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and put the bacon, layered in a glass dish between paper towels, in a microwave oven to cook for approximately 12 minutes, or until crisp. {You may also cook the bacon in a frying pan on the stove}.
  • While the bacon is cooking, start chopping all the veggies into small pieces, and place in a large salad bowl. Next chop up the avocado and add to the veggie mixture. Once the bacon has finished cooking, crumble it up, and add it as well. Pour ~ 1/4 cup dressing on top, or to taste, and toss well.
  • Place the pizza crusts on the middle rack of the oven and heat for approximately 5 minutes {or according to your own pizza crust directions.} Remove crusts from the oven, and top each crust with half of the chopped salad mixture. Slice in quarters, and serve 2 quarters to each person.


Vegan Option

Substitute bacon w/ tempeh bacon or chickpeas. Use vegan crust.

Other Substitutions

Use any variety of veggies in season. Try a cauliflower crust if you’re watching your carb intake.
