For such a long time I’ve heard about Pizza being a poor carb choice, and while I can completely see that for eating out and ordering from pizza chains… what about homemade pizza? Is it really that bad? I have a hard time thinking so…
Using >50% whole wheat flour in the dough (and making it thin crust), virgin olive oil, and using homemade sauce while going easy on the cheese, pizza seems to be one of the best carbohydrate and vegetable options there is. I used to eat pizza once per month, but began to eat homemade pizza 2-3 times per week last July and have gone from 200lbs to 168lbs since then (granted, it wasn’t all about the pizza).
I’m convinced that a properly made pizza has everything you need for a quality diet – whole grains, loads of veggies, a small amount of dairy, and the option to add lean protein as well.
Though since people say pizza is a bad carb choice, I don’t want to feel so guilty! What do you all think?
