      IF YOU STARTED November as a junk-food junkie, it was kind of a rough month.

      Papa John's threatened a 14-cent-per-pizza hike. A Denny's franchise
      (soon contradicted by the parent company) promised a similar 5 percent
      surcharge. And Hostess, in a fight over union benefits, pulled the
      plug entirely. All just after President Obama's re-election. Geez,
      does first lady Michelle Obama's healthier-foods crusade really wield
      so much clout?

      If only. Whether economic outcry or postelection posturing, these
      blips won't budge the monolith of U.S. junk food. But they remind us
      that the "traditional America" - cheap standard-issue pizza and snack
      treats dominating our nation's plates and minds - may not last
      forever.

      Already pizza is diversifying, with vegan and gluten-free options
      showing up in regular pizza shops. These pizzas may not be "health
      food," but you can actually find those in Heart-Healthy Pizza by Mark
      Sutton.

      Sutton finds ways to replicate pizza's zesty charm without added oils
      or fats, a key to optimal heart health. He explains how to build
      cheesy sauces from bases such as barley, black-eyed peas, tofu,
      potatoes or almonds.
