It really depends on what all is on it. A homemade pizza without all the perservatives & such would of course be far healthier than most others.

i think it somehow healthy, when you eat pizza with veggie toppings, you get nutrients from the veggies, or even with all meat toppings you can still get benefits from it though.. and some says pizza has less carb than pasta or rice so you can take as a substitute for your main meal less carbs, just make sure to eat more of veggie toppings if you're health conscious :-)

Moderation is the key. Some people take a paper towel and try to absorb some of the grease. Still, it's not the best to eat an entire tombstone pizza, which I can easily do on an empty stomach.

if you are eating an all veggis pizza, then it should be healthy for you. but if it is an all meat deluxe.. i doubt it thatwould still be beneficial to your body.

I don't eat it that often and when I do it's homemade with whole grain crust, no cheese, and lots of veggie toppings so it's pretty healthy.

i think it depends on what is on your pizza, and it also depends on how many slices are you going to eat. if there are more veggies on your pizza then i think that is healthy. you can try this and eat a healthy pizza http://food.ivillage.com/ethnic/italian/0,,1k23,00.html

I make homemade pizza that is healthy. It doesn't have any cheese or tomato sauce, as my daughter is allergic to them. This week the pizza was Blueberry Pizza, which is a real good flavor and taste. My favorite is a pizza with pineapple and ham, but when I want meat, then use chicken on the pizza. I'm trying to eat correctly, but not giving up pizza.

Well I think we all wish it was a health food. But it truly depends on what kind it is, and what ingredients are in it. The average (American) pizza I'd say is not very healthy because even though it includes members of the dairy, meat, vegetable, and bread groups, it is very high in grease, fat, and calories. European (Italian) pizza however, is a bit more healthy because they tend to not slather with so much tomato sauce and cheese but use other ingredients like olive oil, lots of veggies, and other fresh ingredients.

Pizza is usually considered a junk food, but per serving, it usually has less calories than a hamburger or fries. :P
