Pizza is one of those tried-and-true comfort foods that we all know and love. As a self-confessed pizza enthusiast myself, I fully understand the struggle to balance this cheesy indulgence with weight management goals.
Fear not, my fellow pizza lovers, as it’s perfectly possible to partake in pizza without breaking your Weight Watchers (WW) points bank!
HOW MANY CALORIES & WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS IN A SLICE OF PIZZA?
Just to give us a bit of context, the typical slice of cheese pizza clocks in at around 250 calories and adheres to the 9 WW Points rule. Those who opt for a meaty slice of pepperoni pizza are looking at a solid 10 WW Points count. Feeling like a mini splurge? A personal pan cheese pizza might set you back about 20 WW Points.
Keep in mind that variables like the type of toppings, cooking method, crust, and overall size of the pizza can affect the calorie and point count. For pizza lovers on a healthy eating journey, there’s a lot to take into consideration, including enjoying good ol’ pizza in moderation and experimenting with healthy, pizza-inspired recipes that’ll satisfy those cravings with fewer points.
So, let’s jump in and explore my top 20 Weight Watchers pizza recipes that are both point-friendly and full-on tasty!
