I sure hope this is true, because if eating pizza is actually a healthy habit, then SIGN ME UP TWICE!

A team of scientists and chefs in Italy say they've developed a pizza that can help prevent cancer and heart disease.

The pizza is made with a wheat flour dough and uses lots of cherry tomatoes, broccoli rabe, olives, garlic, and chilies as toppings.  It also uses a lot of olive oil.

You probably noticed there are three ingredients I didn't mention:  Cheese, sauce, or meat.  It doesn't include any of those.  It also doesn't include pineapple, so sorry to all the people who passionately defend that topping.  Gross.

But the team says if you eat this pizza a few times a week, the ingredients can help reduce your odds of developing cancer.

Of course, it's not a guarantee, but it seems like there's no real downside to giving it a shot:  Best case scenario, no cancer...worst case scenario, you just ate a bunch of pizza!
