It seems to me that the calories are based on a 12" pie. We usually get a pie that's more like 16". I will often double the amount that I've eated, or do the same as Cortney-Lee and just use the Big New Yorker entry.

when I track Mom and Pop Pizza shop pizza, I always use Pizza Hut's Big New Yorker entry. I may be over estimating, but I think it is better to over estimate.

Hope that helps!

I would use the chain places to estimate the calories.

Papa Johns regular crust 8 inch was 180. And the thin crust was 250.(so much for thinking thin crust is a better option)

So I would account for the size of the slice and guesstimate between 200 and 300.

Hope I helped and didn't confuse you more.

I am dying for a nice slice of your conventional pizza place pizza.....You know, like you'd get from a place in town as opposed to Domino's, Pizza Hut, etc.

The tracker says 150 calories and I'm not buying it...lol...I am thinking more like 350-400 calories. What do you think? It's just plain cheese.
