Best & Worst Pizza at Pizza Hut

They say there are only two absolutes in life: death and taxes. But here in America, it seems like there's a third: eating pizza.

A glance at the stats is all it takes to affirm our passion for the pizza pie: As a country, we down an estimated 251,770,000 pounds per year–pounds that eventually show up on our bathroom scales. We're not going to ask you to cut back on the Italian-inspired classic because, if ordered correctly, pizza doesn't have to be a grease-logged guilty pleasure. If Pizza Hut is the chain that has a spot on your speed dial, just use our simple swap to order a slice that will satisfy your saucy craving and help you lose weight. It's as easy as (pizza) pie.

You can love meat without taking in half a day's saturated fat with one slice of pizza. This specialty pizzas is an excuse to go crazy with a ton of high-fat toppings that do virtually nothing for flavor and increase your calorie load considerably. At Pizza Hut, choose a slice that conjures the beach, not the barbecue. The new line of Skinny Slice pizzas will each cost you no more than 230 calories with fresh veggie toppings that don't hide belly-expanding fillers. On the Skinny Beach slice, fresh crushed tomato sauce is shockingly light in sugar, while grilled chicken and fresh spinach pile on plenty of satiating protein and fiber, filling you up so you don't down half the box by yourself.
