Calories In Pizza
Written by Diet Bites
Can pizza be a part of a healthy diet? You bet your sweet bippy!
Thin about it; the base consists of a healthy grain crust which is often dusted on the bottom with whole grain cornmeal. The sauce is loaded with vegetables - albiet tomatoes actually reside in the Fruit Group, botanically speaking.
Whether we add lean meat toppings or a whole lot of vegetables to our pie, this isn't the most unhealthy food on the planet.
What makes it notorious? The cheese; it's mined with dietary fat grams but when slices are limited, it often is no worse than other main entrees.
Another area to watch is the old pepperoni and other fattier meat choices.
Though it depends on what type that you purchase, the following guide provides a pretty good idea of just how many calories that slice will cost you.
All calories are calculated 'per slice' below. Basically, if you order 'regular crust' add 60 calories per slice. If you order 'pan pizza' add 120 calories per slice. Each Italian pie should yield 8 slices.

Keep in mind that the thicker the crust, the higher the cheese, the more meat that is piled on, and the increase in olives ups those calories in a big 'weigh'.
Important Note: Be sure to count the calories as part of your diet.
