While it is only natural to envision a pizza with a thick tomato sauce, this healthier version adapted by Food52 opens up pizzas to a new world of toppings, including greek yogurt. The substitute not only boasts a great taste, but is packed with healthy benefits that are great for your body.

This pizza all comes down to creating a delicious white sauce. The sauce is made from greek yogurt folded into ricotta and spread on the dough like a traditional tomato sauce would be. On top cherry tomatoes are added along with a few leaves of basil for that much needed kick of freshness. You can also add grated parmesan cheese if so desired.

Switching up traditionally heavy ingredients with lighter and healthier alternatives is an ideal example of how consumers are becoming more adventurous with customizing their favorite recipes to suit their lifestyles and dietary restrictions.
