This guide will help you decide what’s right for you. Let’s start with the Nutrition Facts that appear on every carton of pizza sold in your grocer’s freezer case. Look for the serving size right at the top of the panel. Pizza serving sizes are defined by the USDA and FDA so labels are consistent, allowing for comparison between products. (It’s not a recommendation for how much to eat.) The serving size consists of two components, the fraction of a pie and the weight. The weight should be relatively consistent between pizzas, but the fraction of the pie can vary considerably depending on the size of the pizza, toppings, type of crust, etc. Check the Nutrition Facts panel to find the serving size – shown in grams and expressed as a fraction of the pizza (for example, 1⁄3, 1⁄4, 1⁄5 or 1⁄6).
