They're Out There...We Just Have To Know Where To Look

I picked up a take n' bake pizza last night from Papa Murphy's.  I eat pizza a couple of times a week.  Sometimes those 200 calorie Digiorno microwave pizzas, sometimes from a restaurant...it varies.

Anyways, tonight was from Papa Murphy's....

I chose a Large Thin Crust Delite Pizza with Chicken, Spinach, Onions, and Cheese. It has a thin cracker type of crust:

  • 1/10th of this Large Pizza is about 180 calories

In contrast, if I had chosen one of the Large Stuffed Pizzas:

  • 1/10th of a Large Pizza is about 365 calories
That's TWICE the calories!  Healthier choices are out there...we just have to know where to look.

PS: I had a good chuckle when I looked on the menu board at the restaurant...a large is supposed to feed 2-3 people.  (OR 10 bandsters!)



  1. So true, so true - its all about making the right choices with the correct information. Nice pick up :)

  2. My current fave pizza (for 180 calories per slice) is the pizza hut thin crust ham and pineapple.

    Yours looks awesome though.

  3. MmmM. Love papa murphy's! Especially the thin crust which you can cook to a nice crispy crust!

  4. That does look very yummy! We get an organic spinach pizza from BJ's. It is so good!

  5. I haven't tried Pizza since getting banded - I'm afraid of getting stuck!

    But that really sounds good!

  6. Yummy! I will be right over!!

  7. As a newbie I am very excited to know that pizza isn't a problem. Would be very happy with one slice in the future - once I get off these mushies!

  8. I've never had Papa Murphy's - looks yummo though!! Thank you for the suggestion!!

  9. I love pizza. I could eat it every day. My kids could take it or leave it so I always have to convince them that we should have pizza. Even if I go with the stuffed crust 365 calorie piece, I don't feel too bad about since I probably won't even finish one piece.
