There is nothing tastier than a pizza topped with gooey cheese, delicious sauce and a variety of toppings like sausages, slices of tomatoes, pepperonis, bell peppers, onions, black olives, ham, and pineapple. While eating a delicious pie in a family-owned restaurant like Sardella’s Pizza, you may see pizza lovers taking napkins and blotting the tops of their slices.
What is the main reason for blotting?
The reasons why people are blotting away at their pizza are many, but the main reason people are doing it is thinking it will actually help reduce calories. This leads to another question people often ask. “Does blotting pizza actually reduce calories?” The truth to this answer is, yes! You can actually reduce the number of calories by blotting up some of the oil on the surface of the slice.
High amounts of unsaturated fat can cause heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other forms of chronic illness. Thankfully, if you eat a few slices of pie in moderation, the calories you receive from them will not be detrimental to your health.
What can you do to prevent the need for blotting?
If you are as pizza crazy as I am, choosing less greasy toppings for your pizza can help you cut calories and prevent the need for blotting away with a napkin. Switching the crust of the pizza can help reduce calories, too.
We at Sardella’s, offer healthier pizza varieties to everyone at our family-owned business, as we allow you to build your own pizza. You can get pizzas with a gluten-free crust, or stick to all veggies on top for a pie that is figure friendly and heart-healthy.
Meat pizzas, such as pepperoni and sausage tend to produce lots of oil. If you must have some sort of meat topping and you want to minimize oil and calories, have a pie made with lean chicken breast, light cheese and tons of fresh vegetables that nourish the body, or maybe even one with ham and pineapple instead.
