Weight Watchers Smart Ones Anytime Selections

Calzone Italiano

Hungry Gal-Zone!

Oh, it's a happy day at the Hungry Girl HQ! Why? Because we have

discovered a ridiculously tasty, guilt-free calzone swap. And the best part is,

you don't even have to spend time in the kitchen building it. All you have to

do is head to your favorite supermarket's frozen food aisle and snatch it up

from the Smart Ones case. This frozen wonder comes complete with its very

own "crisping sleeve", so your 'zone will be crusty and oozing with low-fat

mozzarella cheese, Italian sausage, and a yummy tomato sauce -- as

opposed to a soggy nuked mess! Another perk (to quote the Smart Ones

marketing peeps) is the fact that it can be enjoyed "fork-free" (not that we

have anything against forks)! Weeeeee!

Sausage Calzone, Average

'Zone OUT!

Calzone is actually Italian for "stocking" or "trouser" (FYI, we didn't make

that up). In fact, the first calzone in recorded history was created when a

very hungry seamstress folded a pizza in half, sewed it up, and took a giant

bite... (okay, that, we made up). But seriously, a doughy pizza-like pocket

filled with cheese, sauce, and sausage is pretty much delicious in any

language. However, the nutritionals for a single sausage calzone are scary-

high. You're lookin' at 584 calories and 30 fat grams for an average sausage-

stuffed one. And as you might have guessed, there are some out there that

are FAR worse. Grab a calzone at the Atlanta Bread Company, and you'll be

downing 820 calories and 32 grams of fat (POINTS® value 18*). Order the

Chicken Caesar Calzonetto at Macaroni Grill, and it'll cost you 1,540 calories

and 88 fat grams (POINTS® value 37*). Eeeks! Luckily, you don't need to

swear off this Italian indulgence (that would be very sad). Just swing by the

supermarket for Hungry Girl's latest freezer find... PRONTO!
