Pizza is basically a flatbread prepared with all-purpose flour or whole-wheat flour, topped with tomato sauce, cheese and other selection of toppings – meat, vegetables and condiments and baked in an oven.

Although, pizza is shammed as a calorie-rich junk food that is loaded with sodium and fat, but you can always turn it healthy by opting for:

  • Using lighter cheeses
  • Loading up of fresh vegetables
  • Choosing leaner meats such as salami, turkey bacon and chicken sausage over pepperoni and pork sausage
  • Using whole spices, herbs, homemade sauces and pesto to cut out sodium and preservatives

The lean meats and vegetables used in the toppings supply muscle building proteins, antioxidants and fiber to the body and the whole grain crust supplies some healthy complex carbs to the body.

As for making a perfect pizza, the secret lies in the perfect balance of cheese, sauce, toppings and crust.
