Is Pizza Healthy?
Saturday, July 1, 2017
For many, pizza is seen as a treat that one should only indulge themselves with every once in while. Over time, it has even gotten a bad rap for being “junk food.” But what many don’t know is that pizza can be healthy! It’s really all about what you’re choosing to put on top (as well as how many slices you’re choosing to eat).
First and foremost, pizza itself offers a number of nutritional benefits including calcium from the cheese and lycopene (a disease fighter) from the tomato sauce. Crust made from whole-wheat flower also offers fiber and whole grains, an integral part of any diet.
But what’s on top is the main key to your pizzas nutritional value. If you load your pizza up with meats like sausage and pepperoni as well as extra cheese, the sodium and caloric content will start to add up fast. By choosing to have thinner crusts and veggies, you can cut calories and sodium in half.
Looking for topping advice? Here’s the 10 best nutritional pizza toppings to consider when ordering your next pie.
- Diced Chicken
- Extra tomato sauce
- Low-fat cheese
- Parmesan cheese
