When you have
a pizza party in Morgan Hill
, there are lots of ways to make sure that each slice is nutritious as
well as delicious. As with any meal, moderation and balance are key to
enjoying your pizza guilt-free. By controlling your portions and selecting
a greater variety of toppings, you can improve the nutrition of your pizza.
Find out more below.
Add Nutritious Toppings
You can change the nutritional composition of your pizza by
changing up the toppings. Options like chicken and ham pack in extra protein with little extra
fat. Add pineapple for extra vitamin C and vitamin E, as well as your
daily dose of manganese. Pile on the mushrooms and peppers to add more
fiber to your pizza meal. Ordering roasted garlic or extra sauce can add
a lot of flavor without adding too many calories.
Change Up the Sauce and Cheese
Many pizza places offer options beyond the traditional red sauce and mozzarella
cheese. In place of tomato sauce, you can order a pesto pie or even a
white sauce pie. Each of these options brings different nutrients to your
meal—pesto, for example, is a great source of Vitamins K, A, and
E. Hard cheeses like cheddar and provolone have a higher protein-to-fat
ratio than creamy cheese like mozzarella, which is why Round Table blends
all three together.
Exercise Portion Control
Eating at a pizza place or enjoying a quick pizza pickup dinner doesn’t
mean you have to stuff yourself. Start with a fresh salad and limit yourself
to one or two slices of pizza, complete with veggies and other toppings,
and you can have a delicious meal that won’t leave you feeling overly
full. Plus, leftover pizza is great the next day, reheated or even cold.
