- 1 block(s) whole wheat crust
- While eating too much of this Italian favorite won’t do much for your waistline, a slice or two is not necessarily unhealthy—especially if you prepare it with these wholesome ideas:
- Change the crust. Raise the fiber value by up to 50 percent by switching from white dough to whole wheat. Just watch for hidden hydrogenated oils or corn syrup in the ingredients.
- Layer hidden health boosters. Sandwich leafy greens like spinach or arugula between your sauce and cheese to sneak in potent phytonutrients.
- Season your pie with fresh herbs. Rich in vitamin A, oregano and basil contain anti-inflammatory agents and antibacterial properties that some studies say are similar to traditional antibiotics.
- Stack on the veggies. Instead of meats, try eggplant and artichokes. Scatter in bell peppers and tomatoes, which are high in vitamin C and lycopene, to enjoy more flavorful, nutrient–dense toppings.
- Think beyond Mediterranean. Try salsa, fiber–rich black beans, immune–boosting jalapenos, and free–radical–fighting cilantro for a zesty south–of–the–border variation. Or top your pie with Thai–based ingredients like peanut sauce, low–sodium soy sauce, ginger, and scallions for an Asian flair.
