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.

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.
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.
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?
