Yes, Pizza Can Be Healthy
And that’s amore.

MEN’S HEALTH – EVERYONE LOVES PIZZA. And, what’s not to love? It’s cheesy, and beyond that, you can truly make it your own: opting for a chewy or crispy crust and adding an endless array of toppings. The best part, though, is it’s often enjoyed with friends.
But, is pizza healthy?
“Rather than say it is healthy or unhealthy, I will say that it can depend on what we do with the pizza in regards to the size, sauce, and toppings,” says Angel Planells, R.D.N., a Seattle-based registered dietician nutritionist and spokesperson for the Acadamy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
“The reason why pizza may carry the ‘unhealthy’ moniker is that it’s usually tied to the calories, sodium, and carbohydrates,” he adds.
“Tomato sauce is rich in lycopene, beta-carotene, and vitamin C, and the mozzarella provides protein, calcium, and phosphorous.”
A slice from a 14-inch cheese pizza from a restaurant chain can have 285 calories, 36 grams of carbs, and 640 milligrams of sodium, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Add pepperoni—Americans’ favorite topping—and the calories jump to 313 and sodium to 760 milligrams.
To put those sodium counts in perspective, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends adults consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day. So a single slice of pizza has about a third of your daily recommended sodium.
(That said, sodium is only half of the equation.)
Still, that doesn’t mean you should give up pizza.
“It is delicious, and that is undeniable, and there still is an opportunity to enjoy this tasty treat without compromising your health and well-being,” Planells says.
Dietitians say several food swaps can improve the healthfulness of pizza, and it’s important not to label foods like pizza as “bad.” Any food can be enjoyed in your healthy lifestyle, in moderation … READ MORE.
