Default question about figuring points for pizza

So. Friday nights are pizza nights for our family. We just got a Papa Murphey's in our area, so I thought we would try it out. Ordered the kids a pepperoni and a deLITE pizza for dh and I. I asked about nutritional data but they were out of the fliers and the manager suggested I look it up online.

http://www.papamurphys.com/public/nu...ThinCrust.html

So. we ordered the Gourmet Chicken Bacon Artichoke deLITE

Per slice: Cal. 181 Fat. 9 Fiber .5

The thing is.. THEIR "slice" is 1/10 of the pizza!! I can only slice into 8 equal slices. 1/10 of a slice is 4 points. Can anyone help me figure out what it would be for 1/8 of a slice? I guesstimated (overestimated to be safe), but I would really like to know for sure.

Thanks for any input..surely there is some mathematical whiz here who can tally up some magical formula..probably algebra or something I slept through, LOL.

1/8 would be .6 fiber, 226 cals, 11 fat

Yeah, who cuts a pizza into 10 pieces anyway?

I got the same as Auntie G and it would round out to 5 points!

P.S.-how did you calculate that (I may need that formula for future pizzas)

All you have to do is take the numbers for the original serving size and multiply them by the amount of servings (in this case x10), and then divide that total by the new amount of servings (8). Voila!

181 x 10 = 1810 8 = 226.25
9 x 10 = 90 8 = 11.25
.5 x 10 = 5 8 = .0625

It was pretty good. The crust was really thin, (thinner than I could have rolled it, likely), but it seemed loaded with toppings...spinich, artichoke hearts, chicken, bacon, freshly grated parmesan cheese w/ the mozz...it was worth waiting for. I saved up points so I could have 2 pieces for dinner. I would like to get to the point where I could be satisfied with 1 piece and a side salad, but it is a step in the right direction (for me) from 4 or more..

A few months ago we have started having family meals again, and I really look forward to Family Nights/Friday is Pizza Night. I feel good about showing some moderation and restraint, too. Baby steps...baby steps..

I'm having pizza tonight. It's been a while and this is my official splurge meal of the week, so I may even have 3 slices - oooooh! I really do appreciate the places that list the nutritionals, though, rather than an independent pizzeria that has no formula. Knowing what you're putting in is half the battle!
