Ah, pizza. It is one of the best types of food in the world, and we definitely have to thank the Italians for it. The crunchy yet soft crust that holds the toppings together, the cheese that melts in your mouth, and the toppings that can be customisable to how you want it makes it the perfect snack or meal every single day.
However, we bet you are aware of how ‘sinful’ pizza is. With loads of cheese toppings and those processed meat covering in its whole entirety, there is no doubt that it is one of the most calorie-dense food in the market.
Here, we will talk about the joy of eating Neapolitan pizza in Singapore without the added guilt. It definitely is possible and if you don’t believe us, just continue reading so you can enjoy a few slices later on.
Opt for the Healthier Ones
Yes, there is such a thing as a healthy pizza. These types of pizza are made with all-natural meat, which are the ones that are not heavily processed. Opt for those that have no preservatives, as these things can easily harm your body in the long run.
You can also look for pizza that has wheat as crusts, as these are healthier and easier to process. If you are conscious about this, then go ahead and ask if you can customize your pizza. Add healthier toppings such as herbs, seafood, and vegetables instead of bacon and tons of cheese. Olive oil-based pizzas are healthier, too.
Share it with Your Friends
Don’t eat the whole box by yourself; share it with your friends and family so you would not get all guilty afterwards. When it comes to dieting and eating the right types of food, portioning is the only key to success.
You can still eat guilty pleasures such as pizza, pasta, rice, and chips when on a diet — just make sure to limit your portions and do your workout before or after, so you are sure that you would burn the calories you have or will consume.
Go Easy on the Cheese
Cheese, in huge amounts, can easily make you feel and look bloated. Ask the chef to go easy on the cheese so you are sure to consume just the right amount. This is the beauty of getting customisable pizzas — you can control the amount of cheese, the thickness of the crust, the sauce, and the toppings that you will choose. This can greatly affect the caloric content of each pizza that you eat.
Cut it in Squares
The surefire way to overeat pizza is to have it cut into large slices. Ask the chef if they can cut yours in squares, so you won’t eat multiple slices in just one sitting. This will also make it easier for you to eat, making pizza-eating less messy and not a hassle at all.
You do not have to restrict yourself when it comes to dieting and eating healthy. You can still treat yourself without feeling guilty about it every once in a while. Enjoy your pizza and do not forget to share it with friends!
