Can Pizza Actually Be
Healthy For You?

This article may come as a surprise to you, especially
if you follow a healthy and nutritious diet...
It's about pizza, the weakness of many people including me. I love pizza-
always have. I make sure I eat it in moderation, but it's still one of my
Now there's good news for pizza lovers.
According to Men's Health magazine, research concludes that pizza
can be good for you. It's important to point out, however, that we're
talking about real pizza- not the kind you get from Pizza Hut, Dominoes or
the frozen food section of your supermarket. By real, I mean
pizza made with real crust, real tomato sauce and pure olive oil.
According to Men's Health, scientists writing in the European Journal of
Clinical Nutrition found that eating pizza can reduce your risk of
a heart attack. In a 4-year study of nearly 1,000 Italians, those who ate
pizza at least once a week were 30 percent less likely to
experience a heart attack than the folks who didn't partake of the pie.
This is contributed to pizza's cardio protective ingredients, including
olive oil and tomato sauce. And here's a way to make the pizza even
healthier: top it with vegetables, part-skim cheese and use whole wheat
crust. You'll then have a meal that is actually good for you.
Can you get this kind of a pizza in a pizzeria? You might be able
to find some that offer whole wheat crust, but I doubt you'll find any
that offer part-skim cheese. What you can do is buy the ingredients at
your local grocery store and make the pizza yourself. Speaking from
experience, this can be a fun thing!
Enjoy the experience of making your own pizza and savoring a
nutritious meal. After all, feeding your body with nutritious meals is the
number one thing you can do for better health.
