I absolutely love pizza, and luckily enough, it’s one of the few fast foods that can be healthy if done right. A recent Harvard study found that eating foods with a tomato-based sauce once a day, can reduce the chances of heart disease by one-third.
So here’s a few tips on how to make any pizza healthier:
Cut the Cheese
Sure cheese makes a pizza taste good, but reducing it by half the amount can cut saturated fat by a third.
Veggies for Toppings
High in nutrients and vitamins, they’re a great alternative to toppings like sausage and pepperoni.
Blot the Oil
Patting your pizza with a clean napkin to soak up excess oil can cut fat by up to 50 percent.
If you must have meat, choose chicken breast or “Canadian bacon” which is the leanest cut of bacon.
