With a wide option of combinations and styles, pizza is one of those rare meals that brings everyone together. Plus, it's not only delicious but also offers numerous health benefits. Here's a closer look at why you should buy a pie for your next meal. 

What Are the Health Benefits of Pizza?

1. Immunity Boost

While there is a range of flavor varieties, tomato sauce is a staple base for pizza. Tomatoes are packed with a range of powerful compounds. For example, they're rich in vitamin C, helping the body fight off colds and even prevent cancer risks, making tomatoes and tomato-based products good choices to boost the immune system. 

2. Stronger Teeth & Bones


Layered on the sauce on its own or underneath a helping of toppings, cheese is a rich source of calcium—333 mg per 1.5 ounces. Calcium is essential for building and maintaining strong bones, including teeth, and can even prevent osteoporosis. It's an excellent food option for growing kids and teens as well as women, who are most at risk for bone loss

3. Increased Nutrients

After building a sauce and cheese base, you can load up the dish with a wide range of meats and vegetables. Meat is an effective source of protein that provides energy. Vegetables, like green onions and spinach, complement the taste of the other ingredients while providing a punch of vitamins and minerals. As a result, pizza serves as a well-rounded, nutrient-packed meal.
