How much FAT in a cheese pizza?

Does eating healthily rule out a family classic? Well, it’s best saved for treat nights, but choose wisely and it doesn’t have to be a diet disaster


• A BASIC MARGHERITA, topped mainly with tomato sauce and cheese, is usually a more waistlinefriendly option than pizzas loaded with lots of other toppings. But the more cheese you add, the more the fat piles up. So beware: those four-cheese pizzas can actually be fattier than a meat feast.

• THE TYPE OF CHEESE USED will largely dictate the fat content of the pizza: ricotta, for example, is much lower in fat than mascarpone.

• SIZE MATTERS – the bigger and deeper the pizza, the more fat, calories, saturates and salt it will contain. Opt for thin-crust and stonebaked over deep-pan.

• CHECK THE SERVING SIZE on packs. Most pizzas are created to feed two people, but because we’re used to being served a whole one to ourselves in restaurants, we often do the same at home. Cut half a pizza into the same number of slices as you would a whole one and you may just trick yourself into thinking you’re eating as much as you usually do (fill the empty half of your plate with salad). If you’re dining solo, pop the other half in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch.
