When eating pizza I have found that taking clean paper napkins and gently blotting the top of your pizza will wick up a fair amount of oils . The last time I had pizza at our favorite place I used 3 napkins on an 8 inch square pizza. I figure any oil I take off the top of my pizza is that much less oil that I am not taking in.

Aside from the common ways to healthify pizza, such as getting thin crust, going light on the cheese, and topping with veggies instead of meat, I also take napkins and "blot" my pizza to soak up the extra grease.Its amazing how much comes off each slice!! This works on frozen as well as takeout.
Don't be shy about using this strategy the next time you want to enjoy some restaurant pizza. Take a few napkins and blot the top of your pizza. You will be amazed at how much grease and oil comes up...think of it as junk that you avoided putting in your body! While pizza is not the best choice for every day eating, this tip can at least help you enjoy it in moderation every now and then.
