On Sunday we headed down to Pizza Hut for our daughter’s second birthday. It was a last minute decision, being over tired, having a house that resembles a bomb site and really not feeling any love for cooking I was sold on Pizza Hut when I received an email offering 40% off their ‘Less than 500 Calories Pizetta’ Pizza.
Pizza Hut offer the Pizetta in 3 options…
- Shrimply Delicious – 470 calories
- Chicken Delight – 460 calories
- Virtuous Veg – 440 calories
The Pizetta is a triangular shaped pizza and is filling enough for one but is on a very light base which they need to take care not to overcook otherwise you end up with a very crunchy pizza. I had opted for the Chicken Delight, unfortunately though some parts of mine were overcooked, although it was rather tasty and would have been perfect had it have been consistently cooked – with such a thin base you really need to take care when cooking.
My gut feeling is if you want a decent Pizza Hut experience, get an 11″ Italian and share it! For example I could have had a Chicken Supreme on an Italian base for 510 calories and for that I would have got more pizza and probably felt a little more satisfied. It would be good to see the calorific breakdown per 100g as I have a feeling that going for a normal pizza between 2 or more of you may in fact be the better option. Overall the Pizetta is the type of pizza I would make at home to keep the calorie count (and cost) down.
BUT, if you are eating on your own or with people who go for stuff that blows your face off i.e. my husband then this is most definitely a good option! Well good when it comes to eating in a pizza restaurant! We can’t be good ALL the time, the success to a healthy lifestyle is knowing that you can be bad every now and again. Every now and again being the key words and every now and again does not mean every weekend!
