Health Tip: Make Healthier Choices When Ordering Pizza

(HealthDay News) -- Ordering pizza doesn't have to derail your diet plan to lose weight. You can make easy ingredient substitutions to cut the fat without losing flavor.

The Womenshealth.gov website suggests:

  • Skip meat toppings and get veggies instead, notably mushrooms or peppers.
  • Order your pizza with a whole wheat crust.
  • Ask for half the regular amount of cheese.
  • Substitute a slice of pizza for a salad topped with low-fat dressing.
