How to Order Healthy Pizza

Save

Do you avoid pizza because you feel that it's unhealthy? Then it's time you started thinking about how you order your favorite Italian dish. The truth is that pizza doesn't have to be unhealthy. In fact, pizzerias are making it much easier to order a healthy meal. You just need to follow a few easy steps.

  • Start with a whole wheat crust. Many pizzerias now offer a whole wheat crust. This option is much healthier than the traditional white flour crust. Even if you're not worried about carbs, whole wheat is a great option because it offers more fiber and protein.

  • Stick with classic pizza sauce. You can now order buffalo sauce or even cream sauces on your pizza. These sauces are loaded with fat. Instead, order your pizza with classic sauce. Classic sauce is a healthy option because it's low fat. It's also made with healthy ingredients, including tomatoes and fresh herbs.

  • Go light on the cheese. It may be tempting to order your pizza with extra cheese, but it's not exactly healthy. Instead, ask for your pizza to be made with just enough cheese to cover the sauce. This will ensure that you get the flavor that you're used to with less fat and calories.

  • Choose grilled chicken. Pepperoni is one of the most popular choices, but it's loaded with fat. Instead, order your pizza with grilled chicken. Grilled chicken is low in fat, but still adds a meaty flavor and texture to your pizza.

  • Add extra vegetables. When it comes to vegetables, feel free to go crazy. Add as many peppers and onions as you like. You can also add tons of mushrooms and tomatoes. If you add a variety of different vegetables, you'll have a variety of tastes and textures that will keep you satisfied.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the pizzeria doesn't offer a whole wheat crust, choose the thinnest crust available.
  • Mushrooms make a great substitute for meat.
