Best side dishes for serving with pizza
What is the perfect pizza side dish? Typically pizza is served as a meal all on it’s own. But I really try to be a bit more mindful with the carb intake and balance the meal with fresh veggies.
We love comfort foods in our home, but I like to give a little bit of balance and pair them with a fresh side or something lighter to round out the meal.
What goes with pizza? Lots of things. You’ve probably seen onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and French fries on the menu at your local pizza restaurant.
And here in the midwest, it’s often served with ranch dressing. Which is surprisingly delicious.
While those are a great crowd pleaser on occasion, we wanted to create collections of the perfect side dish for pizza that is a bit lighter and healthier.
I’m sharing a round-up collection of some the best healthy side dishes for pizza.
You’ll find a little bit of everything here to go with your pizza slice. From fresh salads to pastas and bread made with real food ingredients…to healthier dessert options too!
And even some options that the kids will love!
🍅 Recipe tips
I wholeheartedly believe that good quality ingredients make for the best recipes! I don’t recommend any fake or overly processed ingredients and will usually recommend organic / non-gmo ingredients whenever possible.
Sourcing good quality ingredients can be difficult sometimes. Did you know that most of the olive oil in grocery stores aren’t truly authentic? Or that most seafood is farmed and sourced from China? These are just a couple of examples of confusing product labels.
How do we find the BEST ingredients? If you’re like me, then sourcing clean ingredients is important to you! So, I’ve created a favorite shop page with all of my recommendations. Here you can find all of the best places to source good quality ingredients!
