If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that pizza is delicious. But the problem with your typical slice of pizza contains so many unhealthy ingredients. Fortunately, everything that’s shaped like a triangle tastes more or less the same. That’s why we’ve compiled some of the healthiest triangle-shaped foods that will trick you into thinking you’re eating pizza!
Cut up some triangular pieces of watermelon, top with bananas, blueberries, and any other fruit you want! Invite your friends over for a pizza party and brace yourself for when they inevitably slap you in the face for deceiving them. Hey, it’s still pizza to you!
Homemade Tortilla Chips and Salsa
Tortilla chips are basically a lighter, thinner version of pizza crust, and salsa is like tomato sauce. Just make sure that your yummy homemade chips are as triangular as possible, and this is basically pizza! Leave a little salsa off the ends to make it seem like “crust.” Keep telling yourself, “This is pizza!”
A Triangle of Cheese
Find a grocery store with an abundant low-fat cheese selection and pick out the one that speaks to your senses. Cut out triangle-shaped slices of the cheese and arrange them on a plate in a circle. For an added bonus, stick the cheese triangles in the oven or microwave to get that melty, gooey goodness. This is just like pizza, but without the heavy dough or sauce! You’re really doing it!!
Diagonal-Cut Rice Cakes
Carefully cut each round slice diagonally to get that telltale triangle shape. This is just like pizza but without the heavy sauce and cheese and bread and joy. If it’s a special occasion, combine the triangular-cut cheese with the rice cakes for an extra treat––but DON’T go overboard!! One ingredient more and you could be eating pizza.
A Piece of Kale Cut Into a Triangle
Add a little garlic salt for that extra pizza flavor!
Everyone has their vices, and if yours is pizza, great! But if you’re looking to cut back on the carbs, dairy, and taste, then try these sad triangular treats instead!
