3 Ways to Make Your Pizza Healthier, Bronx, New York

Pizza is one of the most-loved foods in the world. But if you’re on a diet or looking to live a healthier lifestyle, you may think you have to skip it. Thankfully, that’s not the case. Read on to learn how Emilio’s of Morris Park in the Bronx, NY, recommends making a healthier pizza so you can enjoy a slice no matter what.

Make Your Pizza Healthier With These 3 Tips

1. Go Veggie

pizzaIf you’re looking to reduce your ‘za calorie count, you can still pack on the flavor by opting for a vegetarian pie. Pile on tomatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, and onions to gain some important nutrients like fiber, potassium, manganese, and vitamins C and A.

2. Bring on the Mozzarella

Many pizza places offer a variety of cheeses to choose from. When you want to be healthy, ask for mozzarella. This lower-fat variety also has less sodium than your typical three-cheese pre-shredded blend. It’s even better if the in-house mozz is fresh. That means you’ll really taste the light, refreshing flavor.

3. Try the Chicken

If you’re a meat lover, it can be hard to decide on a healthier pizza while still sticking to your carnivore tendencies. Make it easy on yourself by adding grilled chicken as a topping. This tasty meat uses less oil and grease than sausage and pepperoni while still offering the protein you crave.
