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. __________________ Pushing Forward Summer 2014

me thinks someone trying to make their deLITE pizza seem more LITE It was really yummy, btw. thanks for helping a sistah chick out.

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

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..

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! __________________
