Four Smart Ways To Make Your Pizza Healthier

Four Smart Ways To Make Your Pizza Healthier

I don’t know about you, but ordered pizza just isn’t cutting it for me anymore! This is why I’ve researched and come up with an epic list of how to make your pizza healthier. 

It can help you can build exactly what you (and your body) want! Here are some awesome tips on how to create a pizza that’s not only healthier but absolutely delicious too.

 

 

Four tips for making your pizza healthier

1. Choose a healthier crust when making your pizza

It’s always healthier to opt for a lighter option when making your own pizza crust. Zucchini, cauliflower and summer squash are all very good options. They won’t leave you feeling bloated and are gluten-free.

2. Avoid topping up your pizza with fatty proteins

When it comes to toppings, opt for lean proteins. These include beans, grilled chicken and tofu. If you feel like experimenting with your taste buds, you can even sprinkle some walnuts over your pizza. You can actually use any nuts. They’ll add a great crunch!

3. Don’t go easy on the veggies

Veggie toppings on a pizza are delectable! Try arugula, kale, green pepper, broccoli and spinach. These toppings will give you a great dose of calcium, vitamin C, fibre and folate. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy vegetarian pizzas.

4. Choose low-calorie cheese for your pizza

You have to skip the gobs of fatty cheese. Choose fresh mozarella instead. Just one thick slice can clock in 70 calories which is not so bad compared to the others. So, go ahead and top up your perfect pizza! If you prefer a tangier taste, use goats’ milk cheese (it’s surprisingly higher in protein and lower in fat than other cheeses. Don’t forgot the avocado!

These alternatives will add more flavor and nutrition to your pizza and could even inspire you to come up with other toppings of your own.
