When you’re dieting or making resolutions, it can feel like you have to hold back from foods you love the most.
It’s national pizza week, and since many of us are trying to eat a little healthier in 2018, we figured we’d show you how you how you can enjoy it guilt free.
Here’s a little list of things you can tweak to make it from home with the healthiest ingredients you’ve got.
-Use cauliflower for the crust, or else whole wheat – both are much healthier than white bread crust.
-Load up on veggies for toppings – they’re more filling, and they’re extra good for you.
-Use lighter cheese that might even pack more of a flavor punch, like part-skim mozzarella, sharp provolone and naturally lower-fat parmesan.
-Remember portion size and eat slower – also serve it with some salad on the side.
-Meat lovers don’t have to lose out. Swap out fatty meats like pepperoni and pork sausage for thinly sliced (leaner) cuts of salami, turkey bacon and chicken sausage.
-Get spicy instead of greasy. Fresh chiles and red pepper flakes are a good match for more subtle flavors like fresh tomatoes and herbs.
