Craving pizza but think it's too naughty? You can still enjoy a homemade pizza by following these five simple rules
Firstly, use a whole grain crust, which is rich in both fibre and nutrients.
Use tomato sauce, a good source of vitamins and minerals and contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant.
Choose lean protein over highly processed meats such as pepperoni or salami. Lean meats include chicken, turkey or prawns. Or choose delicious vegetarian options such as tofu, mushrooms and grilled vegetables.
Load up on fresh vegetables, like bell peppers, onions, spinach and mushrooms to boost the nutrient density of your pizza.
Go easy on cheese as cheese is high fat; use sparingly or opt for a low fat cheese alternative, such as ricotta.
