How many calories is in a slice of pizza?
And do you really care? Seriously. Dieting or not, if you make up your mind that you’re going to pig out on pizza, are you noting down every calorie? Do you plan on it?
I doubt it. I know I don’t. I want to enjoy the pizza moment! Every greasy, cheesy, dripping oil moment of it, calories be damned.
The FDA wants menu boards displaying the calorie count for every variety of pizza sold.
Can you imagine a restaurant’s walls? It would be filled inside and out! This is impossible to do.
I’m all for calorie counts, knowing the fat and sodium level. I love labels and read them all the time. But I’m perfectly capable of going online and finding the info out on my own. I’ve done it. I’ve looked at the sodium content for pizza because my other half had a heart attack in November and I didn’t feel like cooking.
So let these chains put the labels online. Anyone with a smartphone can look them up if they want, but I doubt they will.
Because when you want pizza, you want pizza. You don’t care how many calories a slice has. Especially when you plan on eating the whole pie.
