If you are staring into the depths of your fridge and trying to justify having cold leftover pizza for breakfast, they we’re about to give you a reason to go right ahead with that decision.  

Because according to some experts, pizza is actually a relatively healthy breakfast choice.

“You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories,” Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN told The Daily Meal. “However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning.”

“Plus, a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash,” Amer added.

Now to be clear, this doesn’t mean pizza is a healthier choice than all breakfast foods. But it is healthier than most sugary cereals. So go on. Eat the pizza.
