I've not met a person who doesn't like a slice or two of pizza before. If only it weren't so unhealthy, we'd be eating it three times a day. Now, a scientist has some good news for you. He's created what he claims to be the first nutritionally balanced pizza and it's ok to eat it all day long.
The pizza, claims Mike Lean from Glasgow University, UK, has 30 percent of an adult's guideline amount of vitamins and minerals as well as a third of the recommended amount of calories, protein and carbohydrates.
"I researched the market and found that seaweed was an interesting new ingredient being used in artisan bread. So we used that as a way of reducing the salt level. The sodium content of seaweed is about 3.5 percent compared to 40 percent in salt. There's iodine in there, vitamin B12, all sorts of things. And the flavour is excellent as well."
The final question is whether or not the pizza is tasty, because that's all that matters right? Each pizza contains the exact proportions of calories, proteins, fat, carbohydrate and nutrients to make it a single, meal-sized way to obtain 30 percent of your recommended daily intake. Lean explained that it could be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner - with no negative side effect to your health.
Lean reassures that 100 taste testers said it was as good or better than frozen pizzas. We'll find out soon enough. At launch there will be a standard Margarita and a venison-topped version, with more toppings to be announced. Hopefully it makes its way to our supermarkets here in KL. [BBC]
