Pizzas are known as real calorie bombs. There are certainly pizzas available that contain more calories than you need one day. As long as you do not eat pizza every day, it is also not very bad to occasionally eat a high-calorie meal. Yet it is also possible to keep the calories limited. You can do this, for example, by choosing a not too big pizza that is invested in a skinny way. What are the pizzas with the least calories and which toppings can you choose the best?
Origin of the pizza
The pizza is originally an Italian dish, where it originated when the poor people started using their bread as a plate. Later on, the pizza originated from what we know now, a delicious crispy dough base topped with tomato sauce, meat, vegetables and cheese. There are variations on the pizza in different countries. So you see in America the famous pan pizzas, with a thick airy bottom instead of the thin crunchy Italian soil. The American pizzas are also richly invested with lots of cheese and meat. The lahmacun, a Turkish pizza topped with spicy minced minced meat and tomatoes, comes from the Middle East and is somewhat smaller and richly invested than American pizzas. There are many different pizza variations, which means that the number of calories per pizza can also vary enormously.
Which pizzas contain a lot of calories?
The number of calories in a pizza depends greatly on the size of the pizza and the toppings on it. For example, the large and rich American pan pizzas are often calorier than a simple Italian pizza with thin soil and simple toppings. The bottom of a pizza pan is thicker and fatter, so that this soil contains more calories. There is also a difference in calories between the large and rich pizzas of a pizzeria and the often somewhat smaller frozen pizzas from the supermarket. The use of fatty meat can also increase the number of calories on a pizza. Pizzas richly invested with salami or bacon are often caloric. It is better to choose a pizza with vegetables, fish, ham or chicken. Finally, a rich use of cheese can make a pizza a lot smoother.
Calories in pizzas
The differences in the number of calories between different pizzas can be large. The tables below show the number of calories in a whole pizza from Domino’s, New York Pizza and several Dr. Oetker variants.
Domino’s is an American pizza chain with more than 200 branches in the Benelux. The pizzas can be delivered or picked up. With Domino’s choice, there are different types of soils. The number of calories of medium, large and Italian pizzas are given in the table. If you opt for a pan of pizza or a cheesy crust-bottom, the pizza contains about 400 calories more than the medium version.
