Pizza - yay or nay?
Thursday, August 18, 2011
I’m off to stay at a friends house this weekend. She’s decided that we’re going to order Dominos pizza on Friday. I love Dominos pizza. I have been known to eat a large Pepperoni Passion all to myself before. That was in the past, that is not what I want to eat like anymore. I’ve checked the calories for their pizza and I wish I hadn’t!
There are 269 calories in each large slice of Pepperoni Passion (5 of them make up half a pizza, so that’s 1345 calories… just in half a pizza). If you downsize to medium, there are still 244 calories in each slice (4 of which make up half a pizza, so that’s 976 in half a pizza).
HOWEVER if I just go for cheese and tomato, there are 183 calories in each large slice (so 915 per half a pizza) and 162 calories in each medium slice (so 648 per pizza).
It’s still a huge number of calories for one meal, but since I’m staying in her house for the weekend, I don’t feel that I can say no. When I told my friend that I would probably just be getting a plain pizza, she told me that I was crazy and that it doesn’t taste half as good as what we usual get… I know this, but I can’t decide if that huge amount of calories is worth it for the taste.
I’m going the gym before my train, I may make my decision depending on how many calories I burn off. If I work extra hard, to burn an extra 400 calories on top of what I normally burn, then I can justify having the Pepperoni Passion… right?
