Guilt-free pizza day!
Pizza is often referred to as a junk food, but it’s such a fun activity — especially on a Friday night or for a weekend treat. There’s no doubt that pizza can be nutritious, so today we’re sharing delicious and healthier pizza options. Another recipe to make your own as a creative entrepreneur, so you stay fueled but can also have fun!
It’s all about making a few simple modifications and ingredient choices, that will help you transform this classic dish into a healthier and guilt-free option. So, let’s dive in and discover the art of crafting a healthier pizza!
A Wholesome Base: The foundation of any pizza lies in its crust. Instead of refined white flour as the base. A whole grain base, cauliflower crust or sweet potato pizza base are some lighter options to choose from.
Vegetables: Choose a variety of colourful veggies such as bell peppers, spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, and zucchini.
Go Lean: Swap out the traditional fatty meat toppings for lean protein alternatives like grilled chicken, turkey, or lean ground beef.
Healthier Cheese: Lighter alternatives such as part-skim mozzarella, feta, or goat cheese ARE our favourite options!
Experiment with Flavourful Sauces: Say goodbye to store-bought sauces packed with added sugars and unhealthy additives. Instead, prepare your own tomato sauce or pesto using fresh ingredients for a burst of flavor without compromising your health.
Avocado Always: Artichoke hearts, olives, fresh basil, or arugula for an extra dose of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats are extra delightful.
Last but not least: Practice Portion Control
Even with healthier ingredients, it’s essential to practice portion control. Pay attention to the size of your pizza slices and aim for moderation. Pair your pizza with a side salad or a plate of fresh fruit to create a well-rounded meal.
So, unleash your creativity, experiment with different flavours, and savour your healthier version of pizza guilt-free.
