7 Healthy Ideas When Eating Pizza

Sep 7, 2019


Welcome to Grapevine Restaurant's guide on how to enjoy pizza while making nutritious choices. We understand that pizza is a beloved food enjoyed by people from all walks of life. With our collection of healthy ideas, you can savor your favorite slices guilt-free, knowing that you're nourishing your body in the process.

1. Opt for Thin Crust

When selecting your pizza, choose a thin crust option. Thin crusts generally contain fewer calories and carbohydrates compared to thicker ones. This means you can indulge in the deliciousness without feeling weighed down.

2. Load Up on Veggie Toppings

Add an abundance of fresh and colorful vegetables to your pizza. Pile on nutrient-rich toppings such as spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, or artichoke hearts. Not only do vegetables enhance the flavor profile, but they also provide essential vitamins and minerals.

3. Choose Lean Proteins

For the meat lovers, opt for lean proteins like grilled chicken or turkey as toppings. These options offer a healthier alternative to processed meats like pepperoni or sausage, which are typically higher in saturated fats and sodium. Enjoy the protein boost without compromising your nutritional goals.

4. Control the Cheese

We understand the appeal of ooey-gooey cheese on pizza, but it's important to exercise portion control. High-fat cheeses can add excess calories, so consider opting for reduced-fat or part-skim varieties. Alternatively, you can also ask for less cheese overall or choose a cheese-less pizza loaded with flavorful alternatives.

5. Whole Grain Crusts

When available, choose whole grain crusts instead of refined white flour ones. Whole grains offer more fiber, which promotes better digestion and helps you feel fuller for longer. This choice adds a nutritional boost to your pizza experience.

6. Incorporate Fresh Herbs

Add fresh herbs like basil, oregano, or cilantro to your pizza. These aromatic ingredients not only enhance the taste but also provide antioxidants. Additionally, herbs can reduce the need for excessive salt, allowing you to enjoy a flavorful and healthier option.

7. Practice Mindful Eating

Take time to savor each bite of your pizza. Mindful eating encourages you to enjoy the flavors, textures, and aromas while being aware of your body's signals of fullness. By eating slowly and purposefully, you can prevent overeating and feel more satisfied with your meal.


At Grapevine Restaurant, we believe that indulging in pizza can still be a part of a healthy lifestyle. Our seven ideas for healthier pizza options aim to accommodate various dietary preferences while ensuring that you don't have to compromise on taste. By making these choices, you can enjoy a delicious pizza while feeling good about the positive impact it has on your well-being.
