I love pizza…like really, really, really love pizza. I love all kinds of pizza…thick, thin, 4 cheese, veggie, meat lovers. Sadly, most pizzas are made with crummy ingredients and don't pass the real food test. The question is: Is Pizza Healthy?
I recently had a conversation with my daughter about if pizza is ‘bad' or not. We had just been with some people who had talked negatively about pizza being ‘fattening' and ‘not healthy'. She and I discussed that food is either nutritious or non-nutritious…not ‘good' or ‘bad'. If pizza is made with nutritious ingredients, it can be quite a healthy meal!
How about pizza restaurants? Sadly, this is where the ‘pizza is not healthy' seems to be true. Food Babe recently exposed many of the popular pizza chains for their lack of quality ingredients (or their refusal to release ingredient lists…which is always a red flag!).
