This is a pizza that you can really feel good about eating. First off, its gluten free, made by Glutino, a company that only makes gluten-free foods. And you’re not only getting a delicious pizza, but it is topped with one of the healthiest foods in the world, spinach. Spinach is nutrient dense and low in calories while being rich in vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients. It is a great source of Vitamins A, K, C, B2, B6, and E as well as manganese, iron, potassium, and calcium. And it contains omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, and selenium. And as if that’s not enough to sell you on the benefits of spinach, it is also chock full of flavonoids, which act like antioxidants to protect your body from free-radical damage. Yep, spinach can keep you from getting sick. But it can also keep your gastrointestinal tract in working order, and protect you against eye diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts. Whew! All that goodness on a pizza that tastes great, too, what could be better?
On the calorie side, I wish this pizza was perfect calorie wise, but it is a bit high in calories compared to other low calorie pizzas. But, I still like to eat it sometimes, given the nutritional value of the spinach. I just can't follow it with any low calorie ice cream for dessert. The low-down on the pizza is that it is 430 calories, with 16g of fat, 10g of fiber and 4 grams of fiber (so 9 weight watchers points).
You can also find this pizza at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Hannaford Supermarkets, Wild Oats, Stop and Shop, and Bashas’, among others, or from the company’s website.
