Healthy pizza that doesn't kill you
Fancy a pizza? Well, forget your usual lard filled crust monstrosity, and chow down on THIS.
It’s the world’s first nutritionally balanced pizza and it’s apparently better for you than a salad. It also contains seaweed, but let’s not think about that for a moment. Instead, let’s focus on the fact that it’s got everything your body needs in the right amounts, and still resembles something you might want to cram down your throat after a busy day.
Created by the appropriately named nutritionist Professor Mike Lean of Glasgow University, the Eat Balanced pizza contains each of the 47 vitamins we all need for optimum health (whatever they are.) The salt in the base comes from Hebridean seaweed, and ground red pepper is added in the tomato sauce for extra Vitamin C, but there’s real mozzarella on top, and it actually looks quite nice. Maybe.
It retails at £3.50 – a bit pricier than your average Goodfellas slop - but what does it taste like? Well, at least Professor Lean is refreshingly honest.
‘You are not sitting on the seats of Sorrento eating it. It is a frozen pizza but it tastes, smells and looks as good as any other frozen pizza.’ He said.
We don't know what the seats of Sorrento are, either, but hats off to Mike for trying to inject some health into our favourite junk food.
Now all he has to do is add a ring of mozzarella-stuffed hotdog around the side and call it 'The Terminator.'
