Pizzas Lowest in Calories


Pizza calories range from 123 to 368 calories per slice, and 3-11% of the percent daily value(DV) of cholesterol per slice. If you are trying to decide what kind of pizza to get then good rules are to choose thin crust over thick crust, vegetable toppings over meat toppings, and hold the extra cheese. Here are the calorie rankings (from lowest to highest) for slices of pizza from various food establishments.

Just a suggestion...it would be helpful to know how you define a "slice". Is it an actual slice as served by the vendor, or a standardized piece of pizza? Real-world slice sizes are all over the map. I personally would find it more useful to show nutrients and calories per hundred grams.

Slices are defined by the size of the pizza, which is why the pizza's are labeled by how many inches in diameter. I assume the rest goes without saying.

Subject:Grams per slice?
The official websites of the places listed above describe the weight of each slice (in grams). The sneaky part is that they have different definitions of grams per slice. So you end up having to do the calculation yourself. So that is really frustrating. I arrived to this website hoping you may have done the calculation "calories per gram" or something like that. Can you list it please and give the calories per gram? Thanks!

Thanks for your comment and suggestion. The calories per gram have now been listed and range between 2.4 and 3.2 calories per gram. The gram weight of each slice has also been listed. Hope this helps and please send any further questions or suggestions.

How can a site named Healthalicious possibly be listing Domino's, Little Caesar's and Pizza Hut as "best" anything?! All of those corporate nightmare pies are full of GMO and hormones and antibiotics and generally the lowest quality ingredients available.

Calories are only one part of a healthy meal, and a minor part at that. You do your readers looking to become healthy a true disservice by suggesting that ANY of these profit-above-all firms' "foods" are remotely good for any body.

Hi Kyle, thanks for the comment. You are right that almost none of the choices are healthy, but these are the only pizzas in the nutrition facts database, and so there was little choice. Plus some consumers simply only consume these brands. So this article more serves to help people make the best pizza choice, after they have decided to eat pizza. Hopefully the general rule of thin crust and vegetable toppings will stick and can be applied to other pizzas: homemade, gourmet, organic, or otherwise.

Hey there, I really appreciate and am amazed by the speed of your quick and rational reply. But I would like to add that we've been eating only one brand of non-homemade pizza for over ten years, and that's Amy's. You can get it almost anywhere, including Costco, it's almost entirely organic, is very affordable for its quality, is the most nutritious of any chain restaurant or store-bought pizza, and best of all it tastes great!

Their pesto pizza with tomatoes is especially yummy. I hope some of your readers give Amy's pizzas (and other very healthy and delicious products) a try, and realize that you can get a cheaper and waaay better frozen pizza that blows away any chain pizza, by far.

Thanks for running a useful site!

Hi Kyle, thanks for the kinds words, and the recommendations. It is true that pizza could really go places as a health and delicious food. I wish the nutrition facts database was better, and will look to updating this article. As more thoughts on healthy pizza, people could look to make their own crust with bran, and try a cheeseless pizza. Just some thoughts. Thanks again and keep on eating healthy.
