Scottish Scientists Create Pizza Healthy Enough To Eat 3 Times a Day

Scientists in Scotland have devised a pizza that provides a third of the body’s daily requirements of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. The recipe, which is being produced by the company Eat Balance, utilizes ingredients like seaweed — known for being high in iodine and B12 vitamins — and red bell pepper sauce to up the nutritional value as well as lower the sodium content. They did retain the whole milk mozzarella, but just used less of it. The new super pizza contains 30% of an adult’s recommended allowance of vitamins and minerals, as well as a third of the recommended calories, protein, and carbohydrates, which means it could be eaten at every meal and nearly satisfy all of your daily dietary requirements. It turns out that this more healthful version doesn’t taste bad either. A taste test was performed using 100 children and adults, and more than 80% said they liked it as much or better than their usual pizzas. Eat Balance is also looking to develop other healthy meals.
