Scientists in Italy have developed a pizza that, according to them, can help prevent cancer if you eat it twice a week.
The "Pizza Pascalina" will be on sale this week at the Naples Pizza festival and is topped with tomatoes, olives, rapini (a type of broccoli), garlic, and chiles on a wheat dough crust.
C'è sempre un motivo per essere "più buoni". Le pizzerie #TotòSapore sostengono la fondazione Pascale con un solo semplice ingrediente: la genuinità. La biodiversità, la territorialità e l'equilibrio fanno della #PizzaPascalina un elisir di lunga vita! Chi mangia bene > Vive bene. Chi mangia > dona. #AngeloRanieri #FondazionePascale #Pascalina
In case you're wondering, no, the pizza does not contain meat or cheese. The ingredients were carefully selected based on their ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. For examples, studies have shown that high intake of tomatoes and olives can reduce the risk of cancer, and a healthy dose of fruits and vegetables promotes better heart health.
Evidently, eating this pizza twice a week can help significantly curb the risk of heart disease and cancers of the digestive system.
But...the argument. Is a pizza without meat OR cheese REALLY a pizza? Discuss.
