Why Veggies on Pizza is Always a Good Idea

April 14, 2023

You don’t have to be a vegetarian to appreciate the flavor and health benefits of sliding a few fresh veggies onto your pizza. Especially at Russo’s, there’s something amazing about mixing bell peppers, fresh spinach, and white onions with our Wisconsin mozzarella. With that tasty thought in mind, let’s recall some of the best reasons to pile more veggies on your pizza.

Vegetarian Pizza at Russo's

Terrific Lower-Calorie Approach to Pizza

While it’s hard to say “no” to the heartier toppings, like sausage or pepperoni, sometimes it’s nice to have a little lower caloric intake when you go out for pizza. Vegetables facilitate a low-calorie diet without sacrificing the joy of devouring a savory pizza. If you want to shed a few pounds, yet still partake in pizza night with your friends, see if they’ll split the pizza, 50/50, with olives and pepperoni.

Substantial Nutrient Value

Most fresh veggies provide an abundant level of nutrients and vitamins. Peppers are chock full of Vitamin C, whereas you can also get your fill of Vitamin A and antioxidants from spinach and other vegetable ingredients.

Plenty of Variety

There’s a lot of veggies you can put on a pizza. Although some folks may quibble that a tomato is technically not a veggie (which is true), it’s one of many healthy, veggie-like toppings that go great on pizza. Don’t forget that Russo’s even offers cauliflower crust, a tremendous hit with gluten-free eaters.

It’s one of the best ways to satiate your appetite without indulging in excessive calories.
