You can change the topping, you can change the flavour, you even change the choice of your crust, but your delicious pizza will still be listed under the unhealthy category. This is because the crust of a pizza is made of all-purpose refined flour, also known as maida. This flour should not be consumed regularly as it can increase the level of your bad cholesterol (LDL). Maida is difficult to digest, and it also slows down the metabolism. This leads to weight gain, high blood sugar and mood swings. If you can’t control your craving for a pizza, the other alternative is to switch to a healthier option. You will not get all your favourite pizza’s in a healthier base. For example, your favourite cheese burst pizza is only possible in a maida base. So, get ready to sacrifice your favourite food for a healthier lifestyle. Here are some of the healthier alternatives to your pizza base.
