It’s nine o’clock on a Thursday, and you had to stay late. Again. You’re just getting home, and you’re too tired to go through the motions of cooking, and your brain is too fried to have the mental capacity it takes to assemble ingredients into a meal.
Time for some late night delivery, but what do you get? Sure, “healthy” Italian foods are offered as an alternative to pizza by your favorite late night pizza delivery place, but when you’re getting fast food delivery, you might as well just get pizza, right? After all, they offer some really great pizza deals that are easy on the wallet. Pizza can’t be that bad for you. Can it?
Believe it or not, there are actually some surprising health benefits of this late night delivery favorite. Some studies have even suggested that having pizza once a week can reduce the chances of getting such cancers as stomach, colon, mouth, prostate, esophageal and lung.
First of all, there’s the sauce. As you know, it’s made out of tomatoes, which are rich in antioxidants like lycopene. That particular antioxidant has been show to reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. The cooking process also boosts the health benefits of the sauce because it brings out even more antioxidants.
Secondly, the toppings on your late night delivery pizza are quite healthy, too. (Unless you get fried chicken and ranch, but that’s another story.) Onions help lower blood sugar and cholesterol, while being rich in chromium, fiber and Vitamin C. Red Peppers are another great source of vitamins like A, C, and B6. Plus, olives help fight heart disease.
Spare yourself the wasted time over your indecision and get your favorite late night delivery pizza. It’s cheap, delicious, and healthier than you realized. Plus, you’ll have plenty of leftovers (making it even more cost-efficient). If you have any questions about late night delivery pizza, feel free to ask in the comments. More.
