At Famiglia Italian American Restaurants in Greenville, NC and Pit County, NC, we are huge fans of pizza. With pepperoni, sausage, breakfast toppings, or Hawaiian style— it’s always a good idea grab a slice. Believe it or not, it doesn’t just taste good, but pizza can actually be good for your body. Here are just a couple reasons why you should grab a slice or a whole pie today.

1. Packed With Antioxidants

According to a study published in the Annual Review of Food Science Technology, there have been some promising studies that

“suggest that lycopene and the consumption of lycopene containing foods may affect cancer or cardiovascular disease risk”

Lycopene is present in tomatoes and the tomato sauce on the NY style pizzas we serve at Famiglia Italian American Restaurant. That means, in addition to the great flavors you can get some great antioxidants as well.

2. It’s a Great Way Eat Veggies

Loading up your slice with some veggies is a great way to increase your intake of essential vitamins. In addition, if you’re not great at eating your greens, pizza acts as a pretty delicious disguise, especially for picky eaters out there.

3. Tons of Options

Pizza is incredibly versatile. Whether you want more veggies, more meat, or more cheese, you can find a way for it to work for every meal of the day. At Famiglia, we even offer a breakfast pizza at brunch to help you start your weekend right.
