"Pizza in the morning, pizza in the evening, pizza at supper time. When pizza's on a bagel you can eat pizza anytime." I guess the Pizza Bagel Bite people were onto something with that whole "pizza in the morning" thing, but according to Health.com, pizza doesn't even have to be on a bagel to be an excellent breakfast choice.

New York nutritionist Chelsey Amer says that pizza has more protein than a typical bowl of cereal and much less sugar, which is ideal for longterm energy, aka no sugar crash.

All those times you ate leftover pizza for breakfast you weren't just being lazy, you were actually making a pretty good choice!

Let's not all go crazy with this pizza for breakfast thing though. Even though it is a more balanced breakfast option than cereal it still isn't the best breakfast option. If you are looking for an ideal way to start your day, Chelsey Amer suggests Greek yogurt with fruit or a bowl of oatmeal.

But, hey, if you do have leftover pizza chilling in the fridge it's definitely ok to say good morning with a slice.
