Fiber is good, we know,
but why does it have to be in pizza? Does the baking make a difference? Also "whole grain" is good, as well as paying attention to trace elements. All these things are available already.
BTW, Haninger will be on you in a minute. He's very pro-German.
I heard that but resisted
because the worst pizza I ever had was from Carolina...well, S.C. but what's the difference. Gotta' run.....quickly. BTW, I'm more Czech and not pro-German though I did own a VW once.
Did I say that out loud?
Oh, there's nothing wrong with Germans ...
I just don't know whether an old German preacher is any judge of pizza.
And rigid in his theology, as well.
German Protestants are
Need to hurry and grab up
Florida and California franchise rights.
Pizza has always been healthy
Unless you eat too much of it
That's exactly what I was going to say...
must be some kind of "pack" mentality.
I always thought it was healthier....
....than the "fast food" image it has would suggest. One slice of pizza can have nearly piece of the "food pyramid" represented. Our daughter doesn't like the taste of milk so pizza is one of the ways we get her to consume dairy products.
Size matters ...
As someone else already pointed out, common sense and restraint do affect the health issues connected to pizza.
I realize that pizza has a variety of ingredients that offer various food groups, various phytonutrients and such. And it tastes good.
Still, most pizza is made with enough fat and salt that it is hard to use it as a substantial portion of a balanced diet.
My suggestion is to make your own pizza.
It's easy and fun, plus you can limit the bad nutrients and maximize the good nutrients.
If you buy the dough at a supermarket, it takes all of 10-15 minutes to slap on toppings and another 15-20 minutes to cook, depending on the oven.
I used to do that a lot ...
I agree that it is easy in principle to make good pizza. Somehow I was never very reliable at translating it into practice. Let's just say I'm better off in my current job than I would have been as a pizza baker. The good news is that my pizzas never tasted as bad as the looked ... but that isn't saying much since they looked pretty bad.
I eventually gave up.
One slice of pizza is enough to push my blood sugar exceedingly high and keep it there for an extended time. I love it but the onset of diabetes removed it from my diet.
Good thought on the dairy.
In my poverty-stricken student days, and before I was a Christian, I was a regular seller of my blood plasma. I recall the technicians telling me to eat less cheese- which I like- because it did something to my body that made the blood flow slower. I don't know if that was true, or if they said it because it took them longer to take my pint. I eat lots of cheese now in my old age, and my ticker keeps on ticking. (Wait ... let me check ... Yep, it's OK)
Sure you got some good steaks down there....
but don't you miss Lombardi's, Grimaldi's, Totonno's and Di Fara's? Those ovens are still going hot here...
