Healthy Pizza

Pizza is one of those universal foods that almost everyone enjoys. It is great for many different occasions such as birthday parties, a treat for your office, sporting events, or even just to unwind at home. Even though many of us enjoy pizza…….is it healthy? Pizza may often be classified as junk food, but this is not always the case.

The basic ingredients of pizza - the crust, cheese, sauce, and toppings, all have healthy potential if they are made of fresh, wholesome ingredients. The nutrient contribution of pizza to the diet is actually substantial. If you compare pizza to the Food Guide Pyramid several food groups are represented.

The tomato sauce and the fresh produce toppings may equal one or two servings of vegetables (a serving of vegetables is/cup cooked or 1 cup raw). An ounce of cheese is a serving from the protein group. Thus, a pizza may be a source of B and C vitamins, beta-carotene, calcium, and protein.

Although pizza may provide these benefits, it also depends on the toppings you put on your pizza and also how much you eat. If you are reasonable with your toppings and consume appropriate portions, pizza can be a healthy and delicious meal!
