Pizza, healthy?

Start with chicken breast strips, which have minimal saturated fat, making them a more nutrient-rich choice than sausage and pepperoni. Cook off your own boneless, skinless chicken for the strips, or buy time-saving bags of precooked chicken strips.

Whether you use full-fat cheese or reduced-fat versions, they all provide an ample boost of calcium for bone and tooth health. Convenient prebaked whole-wheat pizza crusts are widely available, so getting more whole grains every day is easier.
