As a vegetable, Garlic is a fairly common pizza topping. Garlic is so good on so many different pizzas, and pairs well with many other toppings.

Garlic contains Allicin, which helps release nitric oxide into the blood vessels, relaxing them and thus bringing about a drop in blood pressure. Keeping blood vessels relaxed and lowering blood pressure is good for the heart, so keep eating Garlic for your heart health!

I’m a big believer in trying many combinations of pizza toppings, until you find the ones that suit you the best. However, to help you navigate the multitude of pizza styles and toppings, try these;

Garlic and Bacon

Kale and Garlic
