some pizzas are great esp. when they come with veggies. you should go for the not-so meaty pizza if you wanna be sure.

yes.. i love pizza, its healthy has vegetables, tomato sauce,pineapple,pepper, ham, sausage and a lot more added ingredients.. Its a complete dietary boom!!! has carbohydrates, protein, in other words, its a balanced meal.. good for snacks, lunch & etc... TOO MUCH OF ANYTHING IS BAD, that goes to everything, so minimized eating it or proper balance...ok PIZZA IS DELICIOUS i would consider it a health food..

the "normal" pizza is healthy because it's "bread", "vegetables" (tomato) and "milk" (cheese) so you have "base ingredients". Of course if your topping is french fries that is not very healthy so everything depends on what you use as topping. And it hasn't a lot of fats maybe the cheese has but you need fats, too so I think it's a normal food especially if you eat a light pizza (such as margherita, I thing it's cheese pizza in english? even if the cheese pizza has 4 cheeses here... so I don't know how to call it and we have so many different names...)

I think it would depend on what you put on it but I think they can be healthier than some think, I believe vegetables that are over cooked are useless so no one can say what you put on a pizza could not be over cooked, I guess a good base and not too much cheese, although I think cheese is supposed to be good for you...I think they are good.
