Make Your Pizza A Healthy Choice

Make Your Pizza A Healthy Choice

Pizza is a favorite food and can be quite nutritious if prepared healthfully. Unfortunately, pizza can be high is saturated fat. Selecting healthy toppings are key to reducing the saturated fat.

Instead of:
• fatty meats like pepperoni and sausage, choose lean meats like chicken and Canadian bacon.
• extra cheese try light cheese.
• all meat pizza select Hawaiian, BBQ chicken or any combination of fruits and vegetables.
• a pan pizza or thick crust pizza try thin, whole wheat or flat bread crust.
