I had a slice of pizza today, and I was just wondering how to log it into my food log. It was from a small pizzeria and that's why I can't look up the nutritionals online like I would be able to for big chains like Papa John's and Pizza Hut. Hope you guys could help me!
The pizza that I had was considered "vegetarian" - it had black olives, onions, red peppers, green peppers, mushrooms and cheese on it. The crust was neither thick nor thin, and it was about average in oiliness for a pizza. One slice was 1/10th of a pie, and the pie was about 14" in diameter. It wasn't totally smothered with cheese; the layer of cheese was less than 1cm in thickness.
I would really like to have some estimates for the calorie count of this slice of pizza because I'm trying hard to maintain now and I wouldn't like to eat more or eat less than I am supposed to. Thanks for your help in advance!
My rule of thumb is 1600 calories for a 12" pizza that's not loaded with fatty toppings. For 1/10 of a 14" pizza I estimate 220 calories.
If I can't find the exact food, I go to all the similar name brand items and average the nutritional info from them.
14"= large but 1/10 as opposed to standard 1/8 I would go papa johns, pizza hut and dominos and find their calorie count for a small slice of veggie pizza, average them together and volia. Not exact but I am sure it would bring you close.
Just be sure it was 1/10th and not 1/8th. Most places use 8 slices and that can make a difference in the calore amount.
I agree that you'd be best off estimating by averaging some common calories in similar pizzas (of a slightly smaller size since you only had 1/0th). It won't be exact, but even in those big chain restaurants the calorie estimates per slice are never perfectly accurate anyway.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
