Eating Pizza Can Do This To Your Body

2. Tomato Sauce

Tomato Sauce

Tomato sauce is made primarily of Tomatoes so they have to be healthy. Tomatoes are high in lycopene which gives tomatoes their color. Lycopene is antioxidant which protects you against cancers and may even slow tumor growth. Asking for broccoli topping on your pizza is a good idea as they are known for the increased absorption of lycopene.

But tomato sauce is also quite high in sugar which causes obesity and is easily stored as belly fat. So the sauce can lead to insulin intolerance and later diabetes.

When you are making pizza at home, ensure that you add very less sugar in the tomato sauce or go easy on the sauce.
