Calories in a slice of New york pizza?


Quote  |  Reply
Hi all! I love the pizza here and would like to know how many calories (approximately) are in a slice of plain (cheese only) ny-style (italian).


Slices like these - http://www.sliceny.com/images/2004_05_29_ONYP nPSlices-thumb.jpg


Sometimes smaller than that. I am concerned with the calories and would really appreciate a range (ex: 250-300 or w/e) or approximate number of calories in them (counting crust although I do not eat it).
Thanks!

page one for me, the fourth picture (below the first). "2004_05_29_ONYP...mb.jpg"
Shoot, |'ve scanned several pgs, and | don't see it. =[

| would just safely guess, for pizza, 300, regular, cheese, with the crust. For a slice about 7 inches long, and 4-5 inches wide measured across the crust.

try the bottom of this page - http://www.sliceny.com/archives/erock/ ; above where it says "When E-Rock entered New York Pizza & Pasta, there were maybe seven people in the restaurant. It was, after all, about 3 p.m. Everyone there seemed to know..." Thanks for searching!
When I have pizza in NYC I count one slice as two on C-C. So I'd just enter "Cheese Pizza" but as two slices instead of one. It's about 280 calories.

Did you get to see the one i showed? The bigger ones that are thin that are ny italian pizza (I apologize that I want to find this out badly but I want to make sure I'm not inaccurate). Not the small pizza-hut like ones.
Well, I can't be sure it's accurate, but I saw the pic and it looked just the same size as the kind I get (which is bigger than the small Pizza Hut ones). So it was more as a reference that that's how I add them.

I would say around 400 for a cheese slice.  I think that is about the amt of cal in a large thin crust slice at Papa John's or the Big New Yorker at Pizza Hut (Yeah, I like pizza!)  I've looked it up before that way to figure ut the cal count for the NY pizza place near my house.  Dab the grease off the top w/ napkins -- It saves up to 100 cal!!!!

You think that making it 600 calories at tops w/o crusts is a good estimation? (Yes i read all of your posts)

600 is safe probably safe.  Unless it's the kind that is really big (like hangs off both sides of a paper plate) and the grease soaks thru the plate -- then it's probably around 800.  Sad.

800 w/o crusts? Its from a local restaurant but there is little - not alot of grease/oil stuff that you could tell is excessive by looking at it (no "puddles on the pizza"). If there is I usually flip it over quick and get it off or gently place a napkin above the area and quickly remove it.

So 600 would be safe for my description, yes? I hate to be obsessive about things like this.
I think that Sbarro's pizza is the size of a typical New York style slice.

For the record, a cheese slice at sbarro's is 500 calories.  I think that's true for most cheese pizza slices that you get at pizzarias.

Sbarro's has some styles resembling new york-italian pizza but not the main thin crust. Their slices are usually alot bigger (and thicker) from what I eat (Sbarros is good though, I've had it a bunch of times in the past).

NY pizza has way less calories than greasy pizza hut or pap johns.  I would guess about 200 to 250 a slice.

I have a friend who works in a pizza place in Rego Park and based on what he says is a typical slice of cheese pizza its around 680 cals.   So if I was recording it for myself I would estimate between 600-800 calories per slice because of the amount of cheese. 

Well, if it isn't quite as large as a slice from sbarro's then I would use their info and subtract a little.  So if a cheese slice is 500, I would say 450 to be on the safe side =)  Which also happens to be about the same as 2 slices of a medium cheese pizza from a local place I go to.

Eggs have been both praised and criticized for their nutrient content. You’ve probably heard both sides of the story – protein packed versus cholesterol dense, for example, are two common sides of the argument on whether eggs are healthy or not. There’s more to eggs than their nutrients though. See how many of these egg facts you know.
