The 12 Side Dishes for Pizza That Truly Complement Our Favorite Meal

Pizza is always a good dinner option. Thanks to its versatility and general promise of satisfaction, this classic dish is one that will always be a favorite, whether it's eaten in a home of one or in a family of 10. Sometimes, though, biting into a warm pie covered in melted cheese and toppings just isn't enough. When that occasion strikes, it's only natural to crave a side to go with a slice.

Choosing a side to go with your pizza depends on your mood. Are you looking for something healthy, or are you craving something decadent? We rounded up 12 options to choose from, which include healthy options like broccoli and couscous salad as well as richer choices like pretzel bread and chicken wings.

No matter which one you choose—and hey, you can choose more than one—these sides will hold up against the equally delicious flavors of pizza thanks to their own layered ingredients and mostly simple assemblies. These sides are so good, in fact, that you shouldn't be surprised if you opt for seconds over another slice. We wouldn't blame you, even if we love pizza, too.
