For a change, here we present a recipe for preparing a dietetic pizza and another for a delicious cheese snack. Both use natural ingredients, especially quark and mozzarella (for the pizza) and pumpkin and cottage cheese for the Qutab.
Mozzarella, originally from Naples (Italy), was from the milk of buffaloes, but today it comes from cow’s milk. This product contains niacin, riboflavin, thiamine, biotin and vitamin B6, which are all critical for skin, vision and health maintenance.
It contains calcium, phosphorous, potassium, chloride, iron and sodium. The intake of mozzarella also provides the organism with protein (muscles and energy), as well as protection of the intestine.
The calcium protects against breast cancer and heart disease (or stroke) and contributes to weight loss. Mozzarella contains enough biotin (or Vitamin B7) which is essential especially for pregnant women.
It also protects your nails and lowers the levels of glucose (diabetes). Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is also present in mozzarella, and it helps against anaemia and migraine.
