The healthiest frozen pizzas

| December 28, 2012’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. 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 these may exceed a low sodium diet. Adding fatty meats like sausage increases the fat content.
