Expert Tips

“This recipe allows Dave and me to eat pizza and enjoy it. It has lots of good vitamins, is high in fiber and has no cholesterol. Just the right pizza for a healthy heart.” Cathy P.

Green leafy vegetables such as spinach are a good source of vitamin K, essential for normal blood clotting. If taking a blood thinner such as Coumadin®, however, avoid excessive intake of vitamin K because it may interfere with the medication.
