4 Nutritious Pizza Toppings to Consider, Bronx, New York

Despite its reputation, pizza doesn’t have to be the ultimate indulgence. If you eat this treat fairly often, or you’re simply craving a pie without a side of guilt, order it with one or more of the following toppings.

Healthy & Delicious Pizza Toppings

1. Eggplant

If you like eggplant parmesan, you’ll love loading your pie with this highly nutritious vegetable. In addition to being packed with vitamins and minerals, eggplant is also a great source of antioxidants, which reduce the risk of certain cancers. Try it with nothing more than fresh mozzarella and a drizzle of sauce so you can appreciate the veggie's flavor.

2. Broccoli

pizzaBroccoli is a superfood that's low in calories and high in nutrients. Research indicates that maintaining a diet that includes lots of broccoli has many health benefits, as it can strengthen bones, boost immunity, facilitate digestion, combat inflammation, and prevent cardiovascular disease.

3. Sundried Tomatoes

Sundried tomatoes are one of the most popular pizza toppings for those with more sophisticated palates. They also happen to be packed with carotenoids, which contribute to eye health, and potassium, which can combat hypertension.

4. Black Olives

Olives are high in antioxidants, such as vitamin E, which can slow the aging process and prevent cancer. What's more, they're packed with monounsaturated fatty acids, which reduce inflammation and lower the risk of heart disease. Black olives are the perfect way to add a touch of flavor to any pizza.
