Is a veggie pizza healthier than a meat lovers pizza?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (23805points) August 10th, 2021

How many servings of veggies in a typical veggie pizza? Thinking of ordering from Pizza Hut or Dominos.

Alternative suggestions welcome.

Domino’s has the best hot veggie sandwich, in my area at least.
I can also get a chicken breast and cheese pizza for like $8.

A thin crust would be your best option for a veggie pizza.
A medley of fresh baby spinach, fresh mushrooms, diced tomatoes and black olives on top of a smaller portion of cheese.
135 calories for 1/8 think crust veggie pizza.

I think so.

I would guarantee it – even with cheese, there’s no fat or calories from meat.

Yes, but still not very healthy. Fat, carbs, cholesterol, and usually high in sodium.

I love pizza.

Of course there is fat and calories in meat! Where ever did you get such an idea @smudges? Especially in sausage which seems to be most popular.

Just like any food, moderation is the key. As tasty as pizza is, even eating a vegetarian one on a regular basis can be unhealthy.

smudges's avatar

Duhhh! But I meant because there’s no meat!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Ohhh! Yes. Veggies have considerably fewer calories.

Cheese is basically “meat” when it comes to fat, calories and just about everything “bad.” A few toppings of pepperoni or ham are like sprinkles of garnish compared to the fat and empty calorie carb overload of the crust and cheese. I mean don’t get me wrong that shit is good but don’t delude yourself into thinking a veggie pizza is somehow healthier. It’s still a goddamn pizza.

@Blackwater_park Baby steps are good though.

@RedDeer has been making steady progress towards healthier habits. Cutting the soda out was HUGE!

Probably. It could be a toss-up. But if you want to eat healthy, try another dish.

Dutchess_III's avatar

I still don’t think pizza is any less healthy than, say, spaghetti.

Can’t say don’t know. I just pig out and enjoy. I’m gonna die anyway.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Look at it like this. If you.had a bowl full of veggies a the same bowl full of sausage which do you think would be healthier?

Nomore_lockout's avatar

What Dutchy said. So, give me the sausage and I’ll deal with it. No, no need to thank me. Someone has to make the sacrifice.

@RedDeerGuy1 My first thought is: Where’s the protein? Lots of cheeses maybe?

Dutchess_III's avatar

The protein is in the meat.

JLeslie's avatar

There is protein in the cheese too. Actually, some of the veggies have protein too, but in much smaller quantity than the meat and cheese.

If you got four veggie toppings (which seems higher than average to me, but I don’t know), it probably wouldn’t even be one serving of vegetables. So perhaps “healthier”, but barely.

KRD's avatar

Meat pizza is better.

Dutchess_III's avatar

The word was “healthier”,not “better” which is a personal preference.
For example, pineapple pizza is the best.

anniereborn's avatar

I would say yes. Meat Lover’s has a huge amount of meat on it. Which means a huge amount of fat, calories and most especially sodium. A veggie pizza won’t be healthier than just a plain cheese pizza by very much though.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@anniereborn I just mentioned sodium content to him earlier this week. Once you start paying attention, it’s hard to believe we consume so much. Even the sauce is loaded with sodium, so I started making my own.
