How to Order a Healthier Pizza, Bronx, New York

Pizza is one of the most popular convenience foods in New York City, and it can easily be the healthiest meal of your day. With the right mix of ingredients, it can provide you with plenty of nutrients in a tasty slice. Next time you order from Emilio’s of Morris Park in Bronx, NY, try out these tips for making your meal healthy as well as delicious and filling.

Choose Vegetable Toppings

Eating plenty of vegetables is an excellent way to get fiber and vitamins. If you’re concerned about your health, consider forgoing meat toppings in favor of broccoli rabe, fresh pineapple, or sundried tomatoes. It’s a delicious way to cut down on fat and oil in your diet as well as boost your nutrient intake.

Order Early in the Day

pizzaCraving pizza? Consider ordering it for lunch rather than dinner. Eating earlier in the day comes with many benefits, including that you’re less likely to get heartburn in the middle of the night. You’ll also metabolize your meal faster.

Skip Extra Cheese

Avoid excessive fat in your diet by skipping the cheese — or at least eating less of it. Next time you order pizza, consider getting a “red” pie, or make sure your toppings don’t contain extra cheese.

Request a Thinner Crust

If you’re trying to lose weight or want to avoid gaining it, you’ve probably heard about the benefits of limiting carbohydrates. For a hearty yet low-carb dinner, order a thin crust pizza from your local pizzeria.

If you want the best of both worlds when it comes to health, quality Italian cuisine, you can’t go wrong by ordering from Emilio's of Morris Park.
