Fear not! You can have your fit bod and eat your pizza too just by following some sensible advice that will not let that pizza damage your dieting efforts with these tips from The Dr. Oz Show with his “Insider’s Guide to the Healthiest Pizza.”

Healthy Pizza Eating Tips

Thin body, thin crust―When ordering your pizza go for the thin crust, whole wheat choice. Doing so will save you more calories here than anything else when it comes to eating pizza.

Double cut It―Ask that your pizza be served with a double cut of 16 slices rather than the typical eight. Doing so will allow you to still “feel like” you are getting those 2 slices when it’s actually one.

Less meat, less fat―Holding off on the pepperoni and sausage is the 2nd best thing you can do to keep that pizza on the low-cal side. But if you just have to have some, go for the anchovies as a healthier meat option.
