Supercharged pizzas to get one over the Italians

Lead Nutritionist at Scottish Rugby, Richard Chessor, says “The Eat Balanced Pizza is not only a great idea, it’s a great product too and one which can easily be integrated into the players’ nutrition plans."

Far from the stereotypical “deep fried pizza” which has become synonymous with a poor diet, the Eat Balanced pizzas will be fuelling the Scotland rugby team with all the right nutrients that they need. Each pizza provides around 30% of the guideline daily amounts for good health.

Of course we all know that pizza originates from Italy but it was adopted by the Americans’ who supersized it. Now a team in Scotland have supercharged the pizza, just in time for the Scotland rugby team to use it to their advantage against their RBS 6 Nations rivals, “The Azzurri”. Eat Balanced are delighted to be selected as part of the Scottish Rugby team's preparatory diet against the Italians. The perfect pre-match meal.

Pizza is often seen as junk food: too high in salt and fat and too low in protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. The supercharged Eat Balanced pizzas are different because they have been developed in collaboration with Professor Mike Lean and his team at the Department of Human Nutrition at Glasgow University, who have ensured that the recipe is a complete balanced meal. This has been achieved using only natural ingredients, and made by using traditional Italian methods, so they taste as good as you would hope.

Now you can put them to the test. Eat Balanced have a special offer for fans who buy tickets to see Scotland v Italy (Saturday 9 February, 2.30pm) in the RBS Six Nations tickets online at any time between 9am Monday 4 February and 5pm Wednesday 6 February. Supporters that buy a match ticket during this time will be sent a voucher qualifying them for a Buy One Get One Free pizza – available nationwide through Sainsbury’s.
