Can pizza be a healthy choice?

Healthy Choice Pizza "Salubre" by Homemade Pizza Club

The UK is facing an obesity crisis and foods deemed as high fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) along with our reliance on processed foods for more and more of our calorie intake have led to around 1 in 4 UK adults and 1 in 5 UK children being classed as obese.

Part of the problem is that an increasing amount of our calorie intake has been based on high calorie/low nutrient density foods including unhealthy takeaways and snacks.

Here at Homemade Pizza Club, we are on a mission to help make pizza part of your balanced diet. We believe there is an alternative to sugary and fatty takeaway pizzas and unhealthy supermarket options that means you can enjoy pizza the way you like it whilst also achieving an overall balanced diet.

This week we are very excited to launch the new Salubre pizza base. ‘Salubre’ means wholesome in Italian and we have spent a long time developing this new innovative pizza base that offers everything you love about pizza but with several significant health and nutrition benefits.

So what is the Salubre Pizza and how is it a healthier choice?

Salubre pizza is made with a combination of UK milled, vitamin enriched wheat flour and spent Barley grains. Spent grains are the leftover grains from the brewing process and are a highly nutritious food source, being very high in fibre and protein. Increased fibre and protein intake has been proven to be an effective way to reduce overall calorie intake and to reduce the risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and of becoming obese.

The Salubre pizza base contains 22% less calories, 20% less sodium, 14% more protein and more than double the fibre of a regular pizza base. And even more importantly, it tastes incredible!

As an added bonus, the spent grains that are used to make the Salubre pizza base come from a local brewery, not only reducing food miles but also using a product that otherwise goes to waste. So the Salubre pizza is not only better for you, but better for the environment!

So can pizza be a healthier choice and be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet? You bet it can!

Don’t forget to check out our range of delicious Italian toppings that can also increase your pizzas nutrition content including black olives, sun-dried tomatoes and roasted vegetables.
