Pizza Provides Healthy Eating Possibilities for Dieters

The trend toward nutritious newfangled pizza is a real plus for dieters. You can add or subtract nutritious vegetable and meat ingredients to fit your particular tastes and to stick within diet boundaries.

Meat choices for pizzas have moved from high-calorie extra pepperoni, sausage, and bacon to low calorie grilled chicken and shrimp. You can specify the kind of cheese you like and replace high-fat, low-flavor mozzarella with a smaller amount of full-flavored goat cheese or feta. Even a traditional pizzeria can be diet friendly if you order selectively.

If you can, start with a small salad to take the edge off your appetite. Order it with the dressing on the side or extra vinegar to thin it.

Choose more of these:

  • Canadian bacon

  • Grilled chicken

  • Part-skim cheeses, or strongly flavored ones

  • Shrimp

  • Tuna

  • Vegetable toppings, especially broccoli and spinach

Eat less of these:

  • Bacon

  • Extra cheese

  • Extra olive oil

  • Meatballs

  • Olives

  • Pepperoni

  • Sausage
