Is vegetarian pizza healthy? First of all, by choosing a vegetarian life, you are taking a big step towards being healthier. I have explained this in many of my articles with studies. Of course, being a vegetarian is not enough to be healthy. We need to pay attention to what we eat and live with awareness.
Is Vegetarian pizza healthy?
Pizza is one of the most consumed fast foods in the world. It is one of the most indispensable foods for many people.
One of the basic and most common ingredients in pizza is flour. Unfortunately, as many studies have shown, flour is an unhealthy product that should be consumed as little or as little as possible. Regular consumption of white flour can lead to the conditions like fatty liver, and raised cholesterol in your bloodstream resulting in several health issues.
Of course, the vegetables and tomato sauce used in vegetarian pizza are healthy, however, If we put some vegetables and tomato sauce on a product that has unhealthy ingredients in it, does that make it a healthy product? Italians will be very angry with me, but unfortunately, pizza is not a healthy product. This also applies to vegetarian pizza with flour in it.

Is there a healthy pizza?
We know that pizza is unhealthy food. But we don’t have to be too hard on ourselves. As the famous physician, Paracelsus said: “All things are poison, and nothing is without poison; the dosage alone makes it so a thing is not a poison.”
How to make a healthy pizza?
- If you make your own pizza at home instead of buying pizza from the store, you can be sure that it will be healthier.
- Use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.
- Make sure all ingredients are organic.
- Don’t use canned tomato sauce. If you can’t make your sauce at home, use organic, glass jar pizza sauce.
- Do not add sugar to your pizza sauce.
- Use olive oil for the pizza sauce and as a topping
- Use as many vegetables as possible.
- Make sure the crust of the pizza is thin. This way you will use less flour. A good pizza should have a thin crust.
A pizza prepared in this way will be healthier than standard pizzas, store-bought pizzas, and those ordered from pizzerias. You can be sure that most of the pizzas you buy outside have unhealthy ingredients and unhealthy additives.
I know you’re lazy, you don’t want to deal with all these details, but at the same time, you want to eat healthily. I know. You make excuses to yourself, “organic products are expensive”, “I don’t have time”, etc… Pick up the phone, press a few buttons, your greasy, high-calorie, cheese-stretching pizza arrives at your feet and you can enjoy it on the couch. THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY WANTS.
