Eat Healthy at Picazzo’s

Dec 01, 2014 10:25AM

Picazzo’s Italian Organic Kitchen serves healthy tasty Italian cuisine, including vegan pizza and kale salad. They use vegan cheese that excludes animal byproducts and is made of heart-healthy oils and pea protein. Entirely plant-derived and allergen friendly, this delicious cheese can even be enjoyed by those with dairy intolerance.

Their gluten-free pizza dough is made with heart-healthy oils and unprocessed, wheat-free grains recommended for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. The vegan chicken is a tasty and healthy meat alternative. Made with soy products, which are proven to help lower blood cholesterol and reduce the risks of heart disease, vegan chicken is lower in fats and rich in protein.

Kale is a superfood packed with vitamins A, C, K, iron and potassium. High in heart-healthy fiber, kale also delivers antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid, which reduces glucose levels and increases metabolism. Dried cranberries, low in fat and calories, are proven to regulate blood sugar. Dried cranberries are also packed with antioxidants to boost immunity.

Locations: Three in the Phoenix-metro area, as well as in Sedona and Flagstaff. For more information, visit Picazzos.com.
