Can Pizza be Healthy?Read Now
I'm a food & nutrition tech that loves her pizza and I'm sure any food enthusiasts would agree! I love pizza so much that I've made it for breakfast! I've made pizza from scratch by having fun kneading the dough and picking tomatoes from my little garden. Making your own pizza (crust), I try to use whole wheat flour as much as I can and is one of the main ingredients in the recipe. Whole wheat flour contributes to fibre, several vitamin B's, folate, protein and iron. Nutrients that our body needs. Earlier this week, I posted my favourite Chicken or Shrimp Pesto Basil Pizza recipe. The recipe calls for Naan bread which is totally fine to use for those with a busy lifestyle. You see, we can make all foods fit and still meet your healthy goals. By making your homemade pizza, adding a variety of veggies, adds fibre and other nutrients to that tasty slice. Choosing lean meats like chicken or shrimp adds protein for muscle and cell growth. By topping your pizza with low fat mozzarella cheese provides calcium for our bones. So, can pizza be healthy? The answer is yes! By making a healthier and tasty slice to your own liking, for sure pizza can be healthy.
