Practically everyone is seeking healthier eating options for themselves and for their families. Sometimes it’s hard to enjoy the foods we love while adhering to healthy eating, however. Those who choose Kosher pizza may, in fact, find they’re eating healthier than they’d be eating if their pizza wasn’t Kosher. Here are a few reasons why.
- The cheese on the pizza is deemed safer to eat than regular pizza cheese. The mozzarella on Kosher pizza must be certified Kosher. This means it has gone through several inspections for impurities that could cause adverse health issues.
- Since the flour that is the main ingredient in Kosher pizza crust is certified Kosher as well, there is no chance of small insects being baked into your pizza. And who wants to take the chance of eating bugs—no matter how small they may be?
- There is no meat on a traditional Kosher pizza. Kosher Jews don’t eat meat and dairy on the same plate or at the same time. Therefore your cheese pizza won’t be topped with pepperoni, hamburger or sausage. While this may be a big bummer for some people, it saves countless calories and fat for those attempting to eat healthier.
- There is often a great deal of creativity expressed on behalf of those making Kosher pizza. For example, in order to make up for the ingredients that can’t go on Kosher pizza, the cooks typically use a variety of vegetables and herbs instead—all of which are healthy alternatives.
Even if you’re not Jewish, it’s obvious there are some benefits to eating Kosher pizza. Give one a try the next time you’re in a neighborhood where it’s served. And in addition to a delicious meal, revel in the health benefits, too.
