Healthy Pizza? Is there really such a thing? There most definitely is! First, you can always make your own Pizza at home. I recommend starting with a whole wheat crust. Fore go sauce and brush with garlic infused olive oil or a pesto sauce. Load it up with whatever fresh vegetables appeal to you and either no cheese or a lower fat cheese like feta.
If you are looking for a store bought frozen Pizza. A company called A.C LaRocoo has many options to choose from. Organic Whole Wheat Thin Crust:Tomato and Feta Pizza, Greek Sesame Pizza, Garden Vegetarian Pizza, Cheese and Garlic Pizza, and Spinach and Artichoke Pizza. Organic Ultra Thin Sprouted Grain Crust: Bruschetta Style Pizza, Garlic Chicken Parmesan Pizza, and Old World Veggie Pizza. The wheat crust pizzas range from about 200-250 calories/2 slices or 1/3 of the pizza. The Sprouted Grain Crust pizzas range from 170-230 calories/ 3 slices or 1/2 of the pizza. These pizzas all taste fantastic and are guilt free.
Then there is Whole Foods Pizza Bar which now has a Vegan Pizza by the slice or pre-ordered whole pizza. Not sure of the nutritional information, unfortunately. But will tell you it is absolutely delicious! Thin, wheat crust with a vegan cheese that melts like butter, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, and roasted garlic. I cant stop craving this delicious slice. As soon as I get the nutritional info I will pass it on, my guess is that it is pretty similiar to the A.C. LaRocoo calories.
