12- Antioxidants Overdose
In addition to its loyalty, deep dish and thick crust, pizzas are equipped with more antioxidants than their thinner counterparts. Deep dish pizza slices take longer to bake because of their thick crusts and, therefore, have to be treated to higher oven temperatures.
13- Exercise Companion
The temptation of a pizza slice might be enough to motivate you to hit the gym right away. However, pizza doesn’t tell you to cheat every day. With 15 grams of protein a pizza slice, save your energy and bottle it all up for your upcoming cheat day.
14- More Lycopene Absorption
Since pizza is loaded with tomatoes, you’d be happy to know that you’re getting a heavy dose of lycopene per slice consumption. Lycopene is an antioxidant and has been known to be quite beneficial for the prevention of heart diseases. The next time someone pops the ‘Why eat pizza?’ question you know what to answer.
15- Helps to Battle Cancer
One of the benefits of pizza is that it helps protect you from different types of cancer. According to several studies, people who had pizza at least twice a week had less chances of developing cancer than those who didn’t eat pizza at all.
There was a 59% decline in the chances of getting esophageal cancer for people who had pizza twice a week. Similarly, studies also showed a 34% decline in the development of throat cancer and 26% of biweekly pizza eaters were less likely to develop colon cancer as well.
