Every day pizza restaurants across Calgary are home to the lively debate of whether thick or thin crust pizza is the best. Taste is, of course, subjective so everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But we at Tom’s House of Pizza believe that thin crust comes out on top!
The fantastic thing about ordering from your favourite pizzeria is that pizza is not only delicious but it can also be quite nutritious. One of the most nutritious aspects of a pizza is the tomato sauce. Packed with vitamins A and C, along with some vitamin B, tomato sauce is also a rich source of the carotene lycopene, which plays an important role in metabolic health. High quality toppings are also vital as they can be great sources of fibre and other nutrients; what’s more, even your cheese provides a great source of calcium.
When choosing your crust however, you are faced with the decision of whether to go thick or thin! When you choose a thick crust pizza, you may feel fuller due to the thick doughy breading, but you are also consuming a large amount of carbohydrates and calories. Eating too much dough can also increase your cravings by raising your body’s insulin levels. However, when you choose a thin crust, you’re consuming less dough and, as a result, fewer carbohydrates and calories. Further, by adding plenty of delicious and healthy toppings, your thin crust pizza becomes more nutritious.
Since we only use the best toppings available, you can be confident that the fresh veggies, high quality meats, and superior cheeses offered at Tom’s House of Pizza will make your weekly treat into a healthier meal option. These fibre- and protein-rich toppings will lower the overall Glycemic Index of your pizza. This will help reduce your body’s cravings for those extra few slices as your blood sugar levels should remain lower. As an added bonus, this will also help you save some leftover pizza for later!
