Is Cleaner Pizza Really Possible?

Ahhh, pizza.  Everyone in my family wants it, at least once a week.  My husband insists, often ordering whatever sounds good to him, never asking about ingredients.

Something just doesn’t feel right after eating the pizza buffet, and honestly, who goes to the buffet and east just one slice?

Pizza

No doubt, this pie will always be an American favorite, but popular blogger Food Babe has uncovered all sorts of reasons we should be concerned about it, not the least of which is hidden sources of monosodium glutamate or MSG.

So, we all understand the ick factor here, but in the real world most of us don’t have time to scrutinize the pizza ingredients each time.

Maybe our pizza options go something like this, in order from easiest to hardest:

*Eat pizza less often, in smaller amounts.

*Call the manufacturer of our favorite pizza brand for more details about what’s inside.  Stick with the one brand or two that give us the details we need.

*Seek out USDA Organic pizza makers who, according to organic rules, are not allowed to use as many artificial ingredients.

*Make and freeze our  own pizza dough for some convenience in making homemade pizza.

*Make pizza an artisan event and create everything from scratch.
