Tired of the GI Diet, Atkins Diet and Weight Watchers? Doesn't delicious pizza sound much better? Most people think that pizza is on the blacklist when it comes to healthy eating. In actuality, this is not true! As long as you don't load up on cheese and greasy pepperoni, pizza can really be a healthy option. If your family is going to order dinner out, pizza is so much healthier than burgers, pub fare, fish 'n chips and so on. When selecting Fulham restaurants, why not check out Olivia Pizza for a delicious and healthy dinner? All pizzas are hand-made with only the freshest ingredients. And when it comes to healthy choices, let's look at 3 of Olivia signature pizzas- then discuss why they're healthy.
1. BBQ Hawaiian: barbecue sauce, ham, pineapple and roasted chicken. Pineapple is a great source of vitamin C and manganese. It is also a good source of dietary fibre, thiamin, vitamin B6 and copper. The nutrients in chicken include tryptophan, niacin, protein and vitamin B6. Vitamins A, C and E, and the mineral selenium, are important antioxidants found in barbecue sauce.
2. Artichoke Pizza: marinated artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs & grated parmesan cheese. Artichokes contain fibre, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium; they have more antioxidants than red wine and chocolate. Sun-dried tomatoes contain virtually no fat and no cholesterol and are naturally low in calories. They also deliver vitamin C and iron.
3. Chicken Supremo: roasted chicken, tandoori chicken, mushroom and sweet corn. The nutrients in both the roasted and tandoori chicken include tryptophan, niacin, protein and vitamin B6. Mushrooms offer vitamins C, B6 and B12- which are responsible for boosting your immune system. Because corn is so high in dietary fibre, it helps lower our risk of colon cancer. Corn also contains vitamin C, vitamin B5, niacin and manganese.
Studies have shown that people who eat pizza at least once a week are much less likely to develop many types of cancers. The all-star ingredient in pizza is tomatoes. Tomatoes in the sauce and fresh tomatoes topping the pizza are the main cancer-fighting ingredients. This is because tomatoes contain lycopene- a powerful antioxidant. Lycopene is known to help fight many different types of cancer- especially prostate cancer. And processed tomatoes found in pizza sauce are actually higher in lycopene than fresh tomatoes.
