Put Your Pizza on a Diet

Americans order 3 billion pizzas a year. That’s a lot of cheese! According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest:

  • Three slices of Pizza Hut’s pan cheese pizza have 12 grams of saturated fat, about the same as three slices of its pan pepperoni pizza. Two slices of the stuffed crust anything have anywhere from 26 grams of fat (12 saturated) to a whopping 44 grams (18 saturated), depending on the toppings.
  • Domino’s veggie pizza comes with extra cheese. In total, two slices of a medium pizza contain nearly 16 grams of fat (7 saturated) and 439 calories. Two slices of a medium America’s Favorite provide 22 grams of fat, 9 of them saturated.

To avoid blowing your fat budget  for the day:

  • Order half cheese or no cheese,
  • Ask for vegetable toppings, with extra vegetables.
  • Steer clear of stuffed-crust pizzas.
  • If you must have meat on your pizza, make it chicken or ham, Tuna and Tomato Pizza not pepperoni. Or try clams, Have your pizza and eat it, too, with our special shrimp, or anchovies
