(HealthDay News) -- You can still enjoy pizza as part of a healthy diet, as long as you make a few smart substitutions to boost nutrition while cutting calories.
The Womenshealth.gov website lists these tips for topping a healthier pizza:
- Skip meat toppings; instead load up on veggies like mushrooms and peppers.
- Choose a whole-wheat crust.
- Order your pizza with only half the usual amount of cheese.
- Replace one slice of pizza with a salad topped with low-fat dressing.
