Yes, you read it right. With the goodness of carbohydrates, proteins and based on your order even vegetables, pizza is actually healthier than cereals says a dietician in an interview with The Daily Meal.

Hear it from the expert:

“You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories,” explained Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN to The Daily Meal. “However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning.”

She did add that pizza is not a health food but it is a nutritious option when compared to a sugary bowl of cereal and the former even counts as a more balanced meal. “Plus, a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals so you will not experience a quick sugar crash,” Amer added.
