Good choice, bad choice: Frozen Pizzas

| December 02, 2011

We’d rather order a piping hot, high calorie, high fat pizza delivered right to the front door. But the frozen version can be a cheaper, convenient and healthier choice. We were surprised at how tasty the healthiest ones were.  These comparisons are all based on an approximate individual serving size. Healthy hint: Choose thin crust pizzas with extra veggies. Look for low fat and low calorie choices. Most frozen pizzas are loaded with sodium so even the good choices may exceed a low sodium diet. Adding fatty meats like sausage increases the fat content.
