I'm really weird when it comes to tomatoes...like, "are you an alien?" kind of weird XD
In sauced form, I'm fine with it. But as a "normal" tomato, I can only have a TINY bit in itty bitty chunks or else I just can't stand the taste and want nothing to do with them.

Pizza sauce is just tomato and spices. I like tomato and spices on salads. To each his own.

I just tend to get the pizza sauce and melted cheese, which I really wouldn't want on a salad XD

My last 2 jobs were as a line cook at pizza joints - Sbarro is as close as you will get, and they use the same distributors - Sysco and U.S. Foods.

Have you ever tried taking the toppings off and putting them on a salad?:

Weigh it, and then track it as the same weight of a brand of frozen pizza that has a similar crust and toppings. You might want to also track about 1/4 oz of whole-milk mozzarella, since most frozen pizzas are made with a smaller amount of lower-fat cheese.

"One slice" is pretty meaningless, as you've already seen. But six ounces of pizzeria pizza will not be too different from six ounces of Di Giorno or something.

Pizza kills me...estimating calories for tracking is so tough when getting from a local pizzeria!

Yeah, I would go with Sbarro's -- their slices are bigger and the crust thicker than you might find in a really good pizza place, but probably better safe than sorry. I personally would guesstimate about 400 calories a slice unless they're distinctly smaller or thinner than what you would get there.

The closest you will find is for Sbarro - which is NY style pizza: www.sbarro.com/pdfs/Sbarro_Nutritional_Inf
ormation.pdf
.

Where I live, mom and pop type pizza joints (NY style) outnumber Papa Johns and Pizza Hut chains by a good 10-1 margin, and that's what I go by.

So, I love NY-style pizza. But I have no idea how to track it!

The generic "cheese pizza" option in the Nutrition tracker lists 1 slice as 140 calories...but that's hard to believe that that's an accurate average. Chain restaurants' calories are easy to find, but I tend to get my pizza from local mom-and-pop shops that don't have standard calorie-counting-lists to refer to.

Should I keep with the "Cheese Pizza" listing in the tracker (maybe put down that I had 2 slices when I have 1 to be on the safe side?) or try something else that I haven't thought of yet? Any ideas?
