There’s a time and a place for everything, including (and especially) pizza. Use our tips to tailor your next pie to make it less splurge, more balanced meal.
Thin Crust Pepperoni
CALORIES (PER TWO SMALL SLICES): 300
Upgrade to whole wheat crust for extra fibre. If it’s an option, opt for turkey, chicken, or vegetarian pepperoni instead of pork and beef. Add a small garden salad to bring some colour to your plate.
CALORIES (PER TWO SMALL SLICES): 280
Start with a thin, whole wheat base and load up with arugula, tomatoes, black olives, and sliced bocconcini. You will be rewarded with healthy fats, extra calcium, vitamin C- a veritable rainbow of nutrition in your hand.
Spinach and Parmesan
CALORIES (PER TWO SMALL SLICES): 250
Stick with the thin crust, but ditch the meat and top with tons of spinach for a dose of vitamin K and iron. Keep the mozzarella light and sprinkle with a dash of grated hard cheese for lots of flavour with less calories and fat.
