Recommendations for ordering your low calorie pizza
Choose pizza from thin crust, thin base.
Choose medium pizzas instead of large ones. There is a big difference in calories, fat, and sodium between a large and a medium slice.
Avoid pizzas rich in condiments or ingredients, such as those with sausages. For meat, choose lean chicken or ham instead of sausage or pepperoni.
Moderate the use of dressings. Choosing a low-calorie pizza won’t do any good if you top it with toppings loaded with sodium, sugar, and fat.
Avoid “extra” or “double” cheese, opting for these versions will increase calories, fat and sodium.
