If you’re trying to eat healthier, pizza may seem like the wrong choice to order at restaurants or to make at home. However, if it’s made with fresh ingredients, pizza can be surprisingly nutritious and diet-friendly without compromising on flavor. Below, you’ll find a handful of tips on how to enjoy pizza’s many health perks. 

4 Ways to Make Pizza Healthier
