Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
The amount of pizza we American’s consume per year is equivalent to 100 football fields –visually speaking that is about 100 acres!
Obviously pizza is not a healthful meal in most cases but we don’t care because it tastes so darn good. But there are the nutritional consequences. For example, one personal cheese pizza from Pizza Hut has 463 calories, 38 grams of fat and 14 grams are saturated. So what can pizza lovers do? They can get savvy on their outdoor grills and make insanely delish personal pizzas!!
Smart pizza topping swaps:
Go with chicken apple sausage which has half the fat as spicy Italian sausage.
Kalamata olives have half the sodium as anchovies.
Tomato based sauce has 8 grams less saturated fat than a creamy pizza sauce.
Spanish chorizo has less fat and sodium than pepperoni.
