So this past week, I discovered what I thought was a super-tasty low-cal pizza. Zanto 8" frozen pizzas, available in Cheese, Plum Tomato & Basil, Buffalo Chicken and Spinach Florentine.
Trying to figure out the Points gave me pause though...
From the Spinach Florentine Pizza:
Serving Size 1/2 Pizza
Servings per package 2
Calories from Fat 40
Fat 16 grams
Carbs 31 grams
Protein 15 grams
Fiber 2 grams
But with 9 calories per Fat gram and 4 calories per Carb and Protein gram, added up, that is 328 calories per serving. So the whole 8" pizza is 656 calories, way more than the 220 it says at first!
I wrote to the company via their website to try and find out the real deal, but got no reply. My mother, an old Weight Watchers pro, thought there was no way it could be 656 calories. But I did find an 8" pizza listing at Livestrong/The Daily Plate for 900 calories total (Digiorno Pepperoni) so I'm guessing my spinach one might really be 656 calories.
Yep, I ate 8 of those, in mixed flavors, over the entire week, and now I know my week's Points total should be 56 Points higher than I initially thought. YOWSA. I suspected that was too good to be true
So just a warning to anyone out there who has also found these!
My recalculated Points for the whole 8" pizzas, based on the 2nd part of the labels:
Spinach Florentine = 15 Points
Buffalo Chicken = 17 Points
Plum Tomato & Basil = 12 Points
I didn't get the Cheese one, or I'd post that for you too
