Pizza is one of the most beloved foods on the planet. Unfortunately,
it's not exactly low cal. No worries. Hungry Girl is here to help you
THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE...
Fit 'N Free Pizza is AWESOME. It's low-fat and low-cal- just 210 calories in a whole personal sized pizza! Wohoo. Top this Italian stalian with veggies, turkey pepporoni or diced chicken breast. Mmmm. These yummy pizzas are only available online at pizzafree.com, but they're worth the hassle!
SLICE OF HEAVEN
When we saw that Robbin's Nest made a low-carb, low cal pizza we were skeptical. To our surprise this low carb pizza was chewy, cheesey and satisfying. And the Heavenly Low Carb store staffers assured us that when they had the pie analyzed, the numbers proved to be correct- just 350 or so (depending on which kind you choose) per HUMONGOUS pizza. You can order one of these babies from heavenlylowcarb.com
There are some pizza options that are a lot less dangerous than you'd think...
-Pizza Hut Fit 'N Delicious Pizza (1 slice of a medium Tomato, Mushrom & Jalapeno) 144 calories, 4g of fat, 19 net carbs and 6g protein -Papa Murphy's Cheese deLite Pizza (1 slice) 130 calories, 6g of fat, 11 carbs and 8g protein -Little Caesar's Thin Crust Cheese Pizza (1 slice of 12") 120 calories, 7g of fat, 13 carbs, 8g of protein -Shakey's Thin Crust Cheese Pizza (1 slice) 135 calories, 5g of fat, 13 carbs, 8g of protein -Domino's CarbCruncher Thin Crust Pizza (1 slice of Mushroom & Green Pepper) 150 calories, 7g fat, 8.5 net carbs, 6g protein
You'll be surprised just how much fat, calories and carbs some Pizza places' breadsticks can have. Bottom line? You may have to decide whether you want a slice of pizza or a breadstick instead of having em both. Need proof?
-Pizza Hut Cinnamon Sticks (2 pieces) 170 calories, 5g of fat, 26 net carbs, 4 g protein -Pizza Hut Cheese Breadstick (1 piece) 200 calories, 10g of fat, 20 net carbs, 7g protein -Papa John's Cheese Sticks (1 piece) 180 calories, 8 g fat, 19 net carbs, 8g protein -Donatos Pizza Breadsticks w/ Nacho Cheese Sauce (2 sticks) 400 calories, 21.5g of fat, 36 net carbs, 13g protein
HUNGRY GIRL TIPS...
-Think singular. One slice of pizza is a lot less damaging than three...four...five...or six (we hate to admit it but we've done it before!) Be sure to also order a dinner salad in order to make your meal filling and hearty. And remember to use a diet-friendly dressing
-Forget all the new, fancy crusts. Stuffed, Twisted, Pan, Deep Dish, Thick and Ultimate are words to avoid. Instead opt for Thin crust. It's lower in calories and carbs-and once you'll get used to it, you'll love the crunch!
-Ask for your pizza to be made with double the sauce and half the cheese. Most restaurants will be happy to oblige.
-Blot your pizza! It really does work. And it's much easier to soak fat up than to burn it off on the stairmaster.
