Pizza is one of those foods that can either be a healthy treat or violate all of your dietary guidelines.If you're buying pizza from one of the popular fast food chains, you're probably exceeding your daily allotments for fat, saturated fat,sodium and calories. A typical medium-sized pizza contains over 65 percent of your totalfat allowance, 116 percent of your allowance for saturated fat and 70 percent of your daily allotment for sodium. But it doesn't have to be that way. For instance, the next time you order a pizza,request that they cut down the amounts of cheese, sausage and pepperoni and replace them with extra vegetables like broccoli,mushrooms, onions and peppers.By special ordering pizza, you can have your pie and eat it too.

That's a great tip, melgrace. I always ask the order taker to put less cheese on my pizza. That's a great way to cut calories as well as saturated fat intake. Also, whole wheat thin crust pizza can be a great option. Just make sure you don't cut too many things from your pizza else it won't be fun anymore.
