Pizza is not only delicious but can also be a healthy meal choice when thought is put into its preparation.

Though many frozen and fast-food varieties tend to be high in calories, fat, sodium and other unhealthy ingredients, pizza can be made healthier.

Practicing portion control, choosing products with limited ingredients, adding healthy toppings and preparing it homemade are some options for health-conscious pizza lovers.

Note that a whole-foods diet is best for overall health, but it’s okay to enjoy your favorite food now and then — even if it’s not the most nutritious choice
