If you can’t decide whether you feel like seafood for dinner or a pizza, why not have both?
Safcol Seafood uses quality salmon and mussels to add not only a unique flavour on your pizza but many health benefits for your body. Salmon, prawns, and mussels provide essential omega 3 fat that you should include in your diet. The omega-3 fat in salmon, prawns and mussels are made up of DHA and EPA. DHA is the main type of fat found in your brain and research shows it helps support your brain function. EPA improves your mood and can reduce symptoms of depression. EPA also helps to fight inflammation in your body.
There are many whole grain pizza base choices, and this is the best choice for your body. Whole grains contain all the nutrition benefits found in the entire grain from the three layers found in the grain. This includes antioxidants, vitamin E, sterols, proteins, insoluble and soluble fibre, B vitamins and phenolic acid.
Tomatoes contain lycopene which supports a healthy heart and prostate and helps reduce your risk of some cancers. Tomatoes, which are processed like those found in pizza sauce, contain lycopene that is better used by your body. Extra virgin olive oil contains a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and 36 different antioxidants which help fight off free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body.
The mozzarella and tasty cheese add protein as well as calcium. Calcium is needed for strong bones and teeth and keeps your muscles contracting normally. Cheese is also a source of B12 and choline which supports the health of your central nervous system. This is a pizza which not only tastes fantastic but provides fantastic health benefits too.
