“Healthier” Pizza May Soon Reach U.K. Supermarket Shelves

July 3, 2012: 01:04 AM EST
A Scottish university professor working with a private firm is developing what he claims is “the only nutritionally balanced pizza you can buy,” though the pizza is not actually on the market yet. The first three versions of the healthier pizza include fairly traditional toppings: cheese and tomato, spicy chicken with peppers and jalapeños, and ham and pineapple. What’s new and different, however, is a base flecked with Hebridean seaweed, a low-sodium seasoning that provides iron, iodine and vitamin B12. The tomato sauce contains red pepper to boost the vitamin C content. The developers are negotiating with a major U.K. supermarket chain to put the new products on store shelves.
