✔️ Net carbs: This refers to the number of carbs that are actually absorbed by your body. Find it on nutrition labels by subtracting the total fiber from the total carbohydrates. We found about 30 net carbs was a reasonable number for pizza, with many healthier options easily hitting that number.

✔️ Sugar: Sassos explains that crust and tomato sauce can be a sneaky source of sugar in pizza. Look out for less than 4 grams, or one teaspoon, per serving.

✔️ Sodium: Pizza, in general, is not a low-sodium food, but the healthiest options we could find hovered around 600 mg of sodium per serving. This is reasonable compared to some other ‘za’s we found, which were closer to 800-900 mg of sodium per serving.

✔️ Fiber and protein: “Higher protein and fiber options will keep you fuller longer,” says Sassos. “I always say that it’s a good idea to pair the pizza with a salad or some veggies to add volume and nutrients.”

✔️ Saturated fat: Under 4 grams per serving is best, but this may be hard to find on frozen pizza. We found that 8 grams per serving or less was a reasonable number to hit. The lower, the better.

✔️ Ingredients: It’s not all just about the numbers. Pay attention to labels and look for whole food ingredients, like crusts made with whole grains, legumes and vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli.
