Pizza has been a family-favorite meal for decades. This isn’t only true for my family but families across the United States. From time-to-time, this literally well-rounded meal catches flack for being on the not-so-healthy list. I believe that all foods can be a part of a family’s wellness routine and pizza is no exception.
At this year’s International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, NV, I had the pleasure of interviewing award-winning pizza makers and pizza enthusiast from around the world. And it seems we’re all in agreement. From the cost-effective nutrition provided from canned tomatoes and sauce to the delicious digestibility of slow-fermented dough, pizza isn’t just a favorite family meal, it can also be a healthy one.
