If your usual salad routine has you feeling uninspired (and maybe a little bored), look no further for a craveable solution: pizza. Yes, that’s right. Salad meets pizza. In this Tricolor Salad Pizza recipe from Food Network Magazine (pictured above), Ellie Krieger tops a cheesy crust with classic salad fixings, like greens and tomatoes, for a lightened-up dish that has all the gooey indulgence of a takeout pie, plus some welcome fresh additions.
