How to Make Pizza Healthy for You

This article may come as a surprise to you...

Pizza. It's the weakness of many, many people including me.
I love pizza- always have. I eat it in moderation, but it's
still one of my favorite foods.

There's now good news for pizza lovers.

According to Men's Health magazine, research concludes that
pizza can be good for you. We're talking about, however,
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 tomato sauce and 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. Here's
the secret: top the pizza with vegetables, part-skim cheese
and thin crust and you've got a meal that is actually good
for you.

Can you get this kind of a pizza in a pizzeria? Most likely
not. Instead you'll have to buy the ingredients at your
local grocery store and make the pizza yourself. Speaking
from experience, however, 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.
