Healthy Pizza Is Not An Oxymoron!

"Healthy" and "Pizza" do not usually go together. Soaked plates greasy paper, dripping wax or deep fat dish pans plainly demonstrate why pizza is generally considered a food to stay away from if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, lose weight or keep out books. Carbohydrates, calories, cholesterol and saturated fats in a standard pepperoni pizza certainly justify this common view.

But there is such a thing as healthy pizza. Even fast-food pizza outlets now serve healthy pizzas low calorie content. G
ourmet pizzas, too, are often much less fat and vegan pizzas cut cholesterol and reduce the number of calories significantly, especially when there is no cheese is used (as with the authentic Neapolitan pizza marinara).

In health are concerned, pizza, after all, the traditional once "four food groups": meat, dairy products, vegetables and breads. a healthy pizza, however, will have these ingredients in the right proportion, and also high quality (organic, fresh, etc.).

Non-cheese pizzas may seem strange in North America, but in fact the original Italian pizza, marinara was made without cheese, just crushed tomato sauce, garlic, oregano and a thin crust, baked in an oven wood. (By using high quality ingredients makes all the difference in these pizzas.)
