Fast Food Made Healthy: Pizza Meal


Energy 1 563 kJ; carbohydrate 41 g; fibre 7.5 g; protein 19 g; fat 15 g

Two slices of pizza is the recommended serving size for women.  Three slices for men.

This only provides the recommended carbohydrate, protein and fat for a healthy balanced meal, but not the vegetables.  Adding a generous salad without any dressing or protein will complete the balanced meal.

1         Reheat 2 slices of leftover pizza (3 for the guys).

2         Serve with a generous tossed salad drizzled with 1 T low-oil dressing or balsamic vinegar.

Assembling tips Pizzas are high in fat, so choose one with several vegetable toppings (mushrooms, peppers, asparagus, onion, spinach, etc.) and only one protein topping (sausage, bacon, salami, ham, seafood, etc.).

The best way to reheat pizza is under a (table-top) grill. Microwaving tends to make the pizza tough.
