How many calories in pizza?

Looking for a double check from my JBs. We had a pizza lunch at work today. Typical pizza. Large pie. Regular crust. I had two slices of cheese pizza. No toppings. My app says that was 850 calories. That seems high to me. Can you check it out for me and tell me what you would count please? Thanks in advance.

There are so many variables, but I'd say 400 a slice.

A quick google search came back with 275-300, but those sounded like smaller slices than we get here in NY.

I would say waaaaay too many variables. Some places oil the dough before adding sauce, some don't. That alone has a major calorie difference. Amount of cheese, thickness of crust, etc, etc, etc,

Do you know where the pizza came from? They probably have a nutrition guide for their pizza's online. This is my favorite pizza place:

My tracker lists 250 calories for 1 slice of a large Pizza Hut cheese pizza, and 283 for Papa John's.

One slice from a large pizza is usually smaller than just buying by the slice, if that makes sense.

If it's regular crust, it will be significantly higher than thin crust, but significantly lower than thick crust. I agree that there are too many variables. I take it the restaurant doesn't have a website, or no nutrition guides.

Nope - no nutritional info. It was from a local pizzeria. I went with the high estimate from my app and adjusted dinner plans accordingly. It was sooo not worth the calories but I had been looking forward to it and was starving when it came. The office manager tried a new place and I really didn't like the pizza but ate it anyway. I hate when that happens - especially on an UD!!

Mmmm pizza.

I remember reading an article in the Times years ago about the calories in NY pizza, the kind you get at a local pizzeria and not Domino's little slices. They were about 450-600 calories a slice, if that helps.

Haha- no I am not in NY but the slices would be smaller than what I have had in NY. Seems like ancient history now but I won't be wasting calories on the pizza from that place again!
