How Many Calories in a Slice of Pizza

Depends on the ingredients used to make the pizza. A simple Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza can cost an average of 250-350 calories per small slice. This is mainly due to the pizza dough, cheese and seasoning as well as the processed meat slices.

If you want to watch your weight while enjoying pizza, you can have an all vegetable pizza but with the cheese removed (unless it’s a low fat/calorie cheese). Having a thinner crust than a thick crust pizza helps decreasing the amount of calories of a pizza slice. If you can’t have a thin crust pizza, make sure the slice is as small as possible. Avoid deep dish pizzas and pizzas that have a large dough.
