Pizza pizzazz

Pizza is a popular school-lunch item, but sometimes slices from cafeterias may include too much grease and not enough nutritious toppings.

Here's a suggestion for a healthy pizza you can make at home for your child's sack lunch:

Top a prepared whole wheat pizza crust with low-fat mozzarella cheese and low-salt tomato sauce. You can purchase these ingredients in most grocery stores.

Ask your child to select vegetable toppings for added fiber and nutrition.

If you'd like a substitute for the whole wheat pizza crust, try using whole grain English muffins or tortillas. They make nutritious crusts while adding fiber.
