Pizza for school dieticians is a very challenging menu item. A popular food item with the students, yet not the healthiest for them. There are innovative pizza recipes with healthier ingredients to make and serve a healthier and tasty pizza. Another challenge school dietitians face is cutting whole pizzas into equal portions. If pizzas are not cut equally, the students will instinctively select the biggest portions. Another portioning challenge is serving consistent and equal portions. If pizzas are not cut equally, each student will receive a portion that is not consistent in calories and nutrients.
