Healthy Pizza Recipe for Pizza Margherita

1 min read

It’s a long-held belief in this country that pizza is junk food. There’s certainly good reason for this. A typical slice of take out pizza is loaded with fat, calories, sodium, and processed ingredients. Fortunately for all you pizza-lovers out there, pizza can also be a healthy food. Using whole grains in the crust rather than highly processed ingredients helps lower your risk of stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Tomatoes contain the antioxidant Lycopene which help protect your body’s cells, and using part-skim milk cheese keeps the saturated fat in check while providing calcium. Made with simple, fresh ingredients in less than 10 minutes, my version of pizza comes in under 300 calories per serving and you won’t believe the price (see notes below recipe)
PIZZA MARGHERITA
1 whole grain English muffin
1/2 roma tomato, sliced thin
1/3 cup part-skim milk mozzarella cheese, shredded
fresh, chopped basil
Toast the English muffin. Layer the tomatoes onto the English muffin halves. Sprinkle on the basil, then the cheese. Put the pizza under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
