Pizza is often thought of as a “cheat meal” and for good reason. With an abundance of excess carbohydrates, fat and calories, pizza tends to be a food that gets pushed to the wayside when one is trying to simply eat healthier or lose weight. Thankfully however, pizza doesn’t have to be gone forever!
It’s common knowledge that thin crust pizza has less calories and carbohydrates than the original thick crust, but even thin crust pizzas can be too caloric sometimes – especially given all the different kinds of toppings available. So what’s a pizza lover to do? How about make your own at home!
