You might not necessarily want to pull the trigger on having pizza for breakfast every day, because it isn’t the healthiest option out there. That being said, it is a ‘healthier’ option compared to the sugar-filled breakfast cereal that lines the shelves of grocery stores. Amer talks about the protein content and says, “a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash.”
Of course, there are different types of pizzas and different types of cereals. Cynthia Sass MPH, RD, the contributing nutritional editor of Health does admit that there are some cereals that can be part of a good breakfast. “A cereal made with whole grains, nuts or seeds, and fruit with organic grass-fed milk or plant-based milk is a better choice over a grease-laden pizza made with processed meat like pepperoni on a white flour crust,” she says.
We are not sure if this is going to make people eat more pizza for breakfast but one thing is certain, the cold slice of breakfast pizza is sure to maintain its place in our lives and our hearts.
