What sides to eat with a basic pizza?

I'm making my first attempt at Kenji's non-hack skillet broiler method this week. We are having some vegetarian friends over for dinner so one of my two small pies will be a margherita.

Does anyone have any good sides to serve along with this? I was thinking about turning half my dough into some fresh garlic bread, but that seems like a lot of carbs and not very creative. Something light, vegetarian friendly and quick is ideal.
