Nuts have protein, fat, and fiber, so you could try eating some nuts before your cookie or fruit or whatever (nuts first so they're already in your stomach when you add the extra carbs). Bread eaten with butter or cheese would have a lower glycemic load than plain bread eaten alone, so pizza is already at least better than plain bread.
