The pizza has been voted America’s favorite food for countless years and is consumed by most Americans each year. The pizza in its first generation as a food in Rome was a healthy tomato filled food that was not only great tasting but actually good for your body. Fast forward a few thousand years and we’ve got the fat loaded kitchen sink style pizza. Everything from bacon to cheddar cheese top pizzas around the world every day. To make matters worse delivery chains have started to use inexpensive processed food products to help make the pizza as cheaply as humanly possible. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. That pizza the chain company delivers to your door with a smile could land you in the doctor’s office with a frown in no time.
The first step in eating a healthy pizza is making it yourself. There is any number of restaurants that will boost healthy pizzas on their menus, but to be sure it truly is a healthy pizza, it’s better to play it safe and make it yourself. There are some places that will really make a healthy pizza but in order to understand what is most healthy for you to eat it’s easier to cook it.
Once you’ve come to the realization that you will be cooking this culinary masterpiece, it’s time to decide on ingredients. The healthiest pizzas include fresh tomatoes, garlic, and small amounts of fresh mozzarella cheese. The pizza can be topped with spinach, broccoli, or any number of fresh vegetables.
Bake the pizza for 20 minutes at 400 degrees, and dab off the grease from the cheese as it starts to settle on top of your pizza. After you have finished cooking the pizza, let it cool, and enjoy. The pizza should taste better than ever knowing that it’s one full of healthy ingredients.
