Craving gooey, cheesy pizza? No problem! HG is here with some picks and
Pizza Find Worth Seeking Out
A.C. LaRocco Ultra Thin Crust Bruschetta Style Pizza
PER SERVING (1/2 of pizza, 3.5 oz.): 170 calories, 8g fat, 290mg sodium,
17g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, 11g protein -- POINTS® value 4*
We tasted a whole SLEW of new pizzas from A.C. LaRocco so that we could
tell you which to chew. (Special thanks to HG auction winner Robin and her
pal Lisa for helping out with that!) For the most part, they're all pretty good.
But our hands-down favorite is this Bruschetta Style one -- it's AMAZING!
The crust is tortilla-thin, but with the chunky tomatoes and seasonings on
top, everything balances out really well. Even better, you can eat half the
pizza for only 170 calories! The only warning? If you're planning on kissing
someone (even the dog), pop an Altoid, 'cuz there's a lotta garlic goin' on
here! Click here for a list of stores that stock these. (We recommend calling
first to make sure they've got 'em.)
NEWSFLASH! Fat-Free Pizza Update
Pizza Fit'n Free
PER SERVING (One 6.4-oz. pizza): 252 calories, 0g fat, 450mg sodium, 43g
carbs, 3g fiber, 0g sugars, 19g protein -- POINTS® value 4*
We're SO excited! We've always been fans of this little-known, fat-free pizza.
But NOW we like it even more. The Fit'n Free folks have made their cheese
even better and improved its "melt-ability", yet they've managed to keep the
calorie count at 252. VERY impressive! And with stats so low, there's plenty
of room to add your own toppings like turkey pepperoni, mushrooms,
peppers, onions, grilled chicken, and more. If you've never tried this pizza
(or didn't like it the first time around), get your hands on the new-and-
improved version STAT!
