The mad scientists at ThinSlim Foods are hard at work on a new pizza. Based on your feedback we are trying to make the pizza low in carbs, low in calories, and short on fillers.
It is a might taste to try and make a decent low calorie pizza, but considering most of America’s obsession with this Italian masterpiece we figure a ‘diet’ pizza is a must for keeping people living a healthy lifestyle.
We need your help deciding which type of cheese to use.
Cheese. The magic ingredient. Although in Italy the focus is on the crust, and not the cheese. Here in the great U.S. of A, the crust is just a vehicle for cheese and topping heaven delivery. That is why even the crust itself sometimes comes ‘stuffed’ with cheese – a cheese topping just didn’t suffice for some people.
Cheese though, is high in calories, mostly from fat. In order to reduce the calories you need to reduce the fat – but as the fat leaves so does that cheesy taste. Below is the quick nutritional breakdown on the 3 options for cheese. We need help deciding which trade-off in taste for calories is worth it.
Full fat cheese would be 126 calories, 1.5 net carbs, 0g sugar, and 9g protein.
Reduced fat cheese would be 105 calories, 1.5 net carbs, 0g sugar, and 12g protein.
Fat free cheese would be 67.5 calories, 3g net carbs, 0g sugar, and 12g protein.
Full fat cheese tastes the best – duh.
Fat free cheese tastes the worst – double duh.
Surprisingly the difference between reduced fat cheese and fat free cheese is quite noticeable. The difference between the reduced fat cheese and the full fat cheese though is hard to tell.
We are considering sticking with the reduced fat cheese even though it will be higher in calories.
