How to make pizza healthier and cheaper than pizza delivery.
EatingWell’s Pizza Smack-Down
By Liza Nowak
In just 20 minutes, I made a batch of Thin-Crust Whole-Wheat Dough, set it to rise and popped it in the refrigerator. The next night at 7:00, Andrew called to order a sausage-and-pepper pizza for delivery while I rolled out my dough. By 7:15, the dough was topped with sauce, turkey sausage, fennel and cheese and in the oven. I tossed a salad together while it baked and by 7:30 I was pulling a beautiful pie out of the oven—just as the delivery boy rang our doorbell.
The tie-breaker was this: my EatingWell pizza was 209 calories less per two-slice serving, had half the fat and cost only $6.38 compared to our $20 (plus $3 tip) takeout. Plus, with its crunchy fennel topping and super-crispy crust, even Andrew agreed it was more delicious. So I won the bet, and you can guess who will be missing his anchovies when pizza night rolls around.
