  • Takeaway pizza

    I am making a poster for the school where I work to explain exactly why pizza is so bad for you. The target audience is teenage boys who are quite keen to look good with their shirts off. All ideas welcome.

      Just off the top of my head, I think I'd dissect it and show what's wrong with each ingredient. For eg., why wheat in the crust isn't good, what goes into things like pepperoni and sausage, the pesticides in the tomato sauce, the hormones in the processed cheese, how bad seed oils are for you.

      The truth is that except for the crust, a pizza made by a mom and pop place that took the time and care with its ingredients is actually pretty good. Organic tomatoes, meats that are cured rather than processed, cheese from non-bgh cows, and genuine olive oil would make for a relatively healthy meal. Figure out a way to make a decent GF crust, and pizza isn't the worst culprit around.

          The liklihood is that you'll want to speak to the kids who are overweight, not all kids in general. So, I would think of those kids as my target market. Some teenagers can eat pizza three meals a day and still have a completely flat stomach and love what they look like -- it's really tough to make the case to them, right?

          People don't tend to buy into the "but you could perform BETTER than you already do" argument. As it goes for health, if they're not fat, sick or dying they typically don't want to hear what you have to say.

            Kids usually don't respond to prohibition. What might work is a more positive guide for homemade "cheats/hacks" to make an easy pseudo-pizza inside bell peppers, portobello caps, or casserole dish. A different tack might be to call out the popular chains for their cheap/toxic ingredients so they feel ripped off.

              Or tap into the rebellion aspect...just because THEMAN gives you crust, doesn't mean that you have to eat it. Toppings only!

                You're going to try and tell teenage boys not to eat pizza? Good luck with that

                  Gotta hate the ones who eat it all the time and still look good...most of them are fit but a bit podgy, no definition in any of the muscles and it's such a waste of all that testosterone...would love to have another crack at being 18 and lifting with a proper diet. They pizza they eat is the nastiest crap made with the cheapest ingredients, it must make them feel pretty lousy.
                  Maybe a controlled experiment would be best, pizza eating group versus primal group?

                      I'd say meatzza vs pizza as a new trend for the Real Men. My 7 yo makes no secret of her love of meatzza.

                        Not to be a smartass, but does anyone think pizza is good for them?

                          I would say that given the dietary villains of teenagers, pizza is not at the top of your hit list.

                          Soda and all of the processed sugar in pretty much everything else is much worse, as well as all of the vegetable/seed oils, all are much worse than pizza. A thin crust pizza is high in starch due to the crust, but does have some nutritional value. It is often high in fat and protein as well, so the overall caloric bomb is pretty strong....

                          Plus my two cheat foods are almost always pizza or homemade ice cream. Seems to be working out ok

                            This. Traditional pizza - fermented non-GMO wheat with fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, isn't bad at all. That is real pizza. We're not talking Dominos, Pizza Hut and Uno's, which is 9 pounds of GMO dough basted with soybean oil and plastic cheese.

                            The real villains are things deep fried in and infused with vegetable oil - doughnuts, french fries, chicken nuggets, refrigerated biscuits, funnel cake - and the pseudo-health foods like soy milk, seitan, tofu, margarine, etc - that are causing the health nightmares. If you really want to catch people's attention do an expose on "heart healthy canola oil."

                              I make my own pizza always with olive oil and a sourdough crust. It's good.
