Pizza is one of America’s favorite foods. We can find a rendition of the classic Italian food almost anywhere. From restaurants and school cafeterias to entire aisles at the grocery store. Pizza has never had the connotation of being a healthy food, but do you know just how much the nutritional value affects those who eat it?
It is not so much the contents of pizza that are bad for us, but more so how much we consume it, and how often we consume it. On any given day 20 percent of young Americans eat pizza. And how many of us have been known to stop at just one slice? Or even two? A study by the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that if we eat less pizza, or even just healthier pizza, it could have a huge impact on our diet, nutrition, and health. Here are some delicious, and nutritious pizza recipes that can replace the greasy delivery pizza we order one or twice a month. Get your pizza fix, without poor nutrition weighing you down.
