Salty Fact - Pizza Is One of the "Salty Six"


Mckenzie Ellis

A slice of pizza with just a few toppings can contain more than 50% of your daily recommended sodium amount, that is over 1,000mg of sodium! Pizza is one of the "Salty Six".

The "Salty Six" consist of common foods in Americans' diets that are packed with excess sodium. Excess sodium in our diets has less to do with what we're adding to our food and more to do with what's already in the food.

You don't have to give up pizza to be on a low sodium diet! Check out my delicious recipe for Low Salt Barbecue Chicken Pizza with Bacon 🥓 yes bacon!
