Hideaway Pizza does not give out nutritional information - major dilemma here!

Thursday, November 04, 2010

It's almost time for girls' night out again. This month's "hostess" chose Hideaway Pizza so I went online to check out the menu. Not seeing any nutritional information, I e-mailed them and this is what I got back:

Thank you for inquiring about our menuís nutritional content.

At Hideaway Pizza, our goal is to consistently provide the highest quality food made with the best quality of ingredients. In order to do this, we constantly monitor the quality of food we receive from our vendors. Whenever we find the need or the opportunity to better our food items by changing vendors or upgrading our food ingredients, the nutritional information in any item affected has to be recalculated.

Due to our desire to be accurate with this information, at this time we cannot provide this exact information and hope you understand. When you visit our restaurants, we will be happy to custom make any of our wonderful pizzas to your liking. We also serve a wonderful variety of delicious salads and sandwiches and pastas we hope you will enjoy. We will certainly let you know when we have the info for these particular items.

Sincerely yours,

Janie Harris

Well, THAT didn't help me much!

BSP (Before SparkPeople) my go to's were either the Maui Magic or the Pizza of the Gods with a Just-a-Beginner Salad. My question is, since I will be eating from this pizza for most of the week, which one do you think is a better choice?

Pizza of the Gods

Zeus, Apollo, Poseidon... all those guys used to eat this one. Hideaway Olive Oil And Garlic Glaze With a blend of mozzarella and smoked provolone, diced Roma tomatoes. artichoke hearts and sliced mushrooms.


The Maui Magic

An all-time favorite for Oklahomans living in Maui... or wishing they lived in Maui. Hideaway Red Sauce topped with mozzarella, Canadian bacon, pineapple, and mandarin oranges.

    I'm trying to find the nutrition facts from them also! I was thinking about calling them till I read this. Looks like I'm just going to have to wing it...not good for my goals! :(

    I usually go for the plain cheese & sauce then add veggies. If I take home extras, I can add other stuff later on. But of the two, I'd say go with the one you love most but be very careful of portions. I have a similar dilemma with my girls' night out tonight - I think it will be all about portion control! Best of luck!

    If you're a really detail-oriented person, you could approximate the nutritional info by putting it into the recipe calculator. For a less work-intensive estimate, I usually find a similar pizza from a place that DOES provide nutritional info, and use that. If you just want an opinion on the two you've listed, I'd say the Pizza of the Gods would have less fat and calories than the other, but that's a WEG (Wild-Eyed Guess).

Aside from the high fat in relation to the other macro-nutrients (and for those of us watching our sodium, that) pizza is a relatively OK choice compared to fast foods. Or you could go for the salad.

Have fun!
