Pizza is one of America’s guilty pleasures.

There are approximately 61,269 pizzerias in the United States. And how could there not be? The cheese, the sauce, and toppings all make for a delicious combination of flare and flavor. Kids especially love pizza! According to a recent Gallup Poll, kids between the ages of 3 to 11 prefer pizza over all other food groups for lunch and dinner. As much as our little ones would love to eat this delicacy all day long, most pizza is greasy, filled with preservatives, and has low nutritional value. How can we enjoy pizza while balancing our regular diet? We have the perfect healthy pizza night recipes for you!
