Low-Cal Pizza Recommendations?

Tonight I'm staying in and catching up on my fave shows and I am craving pizza! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite low cal pizza brands are (preferrably ones that you can find easily at the grocery store). Thanks everyone!

My friend's trick (who is a size 2 but not too thin, she lifts weights and is hot!) is to take off 1/2 the cheese and then spread the rest around. She doesn't even miss the cheese. I do it now and she's totally right. I don't feel deprived at all. This could be for any kind but I like Amy's the best.

If you want really low carb, try googling a recipe with cauliflower. I read a recipe once (i don't remember which website it was from) that made the crust from mashed cauliflower, and then topped it like a regular pizza.

Lean Cuisine- the best by far in my opinion!

I adore Lean Cuisine frozen pizzas! My favorite is the 4 cheese, by I've tried everything, even the deep dish varieties. They max out around 10g fat/400 calories- but you get the whole thing, unilke something vicious like Totions where 1/4 serving is 8g of fat and 200+ calories! They even crisp up in the microwave.

As an aside- I also here the organic AMy's pizzas are good and California Pizza Kitchen varietys aren't too unhealthy.

I have found that ordering thin crust cuts the calories nearly in half. You can have two slices of a large "skinny crust" Round Table pepperoni pizza for about 500 calories. Frozen pizzas: California Pizza Kitchen thin crust pizzas are good. DiGiorno has a "Harvest Wheat" line and they now have thin crust wheat pizzas also. I am a huge pizza lover. I also agree with the last poster about Lean Cuisine pizzas. Great for lunch. Had one today!

Round Table will also do extras. We get the skinny crust and ask for it real skinny and with only half the cheese they normally put on it and of course veggies but they are always willing to do it they even knock off 2 bucks. You'd be shocked how much cheese they use.

I love pizza too!! It is one of the few things that I truly crave.
I like to top a portobello mushroom cap with all of the things I like on pizza. For me, pizza sauce, light mozzarella cheese, black olives, and turkey pepperoni. Then, I just bake it until the cheese is melted and golden. You have to eat it with a knife and fork, but this is good, pretty light, and fullfills my cravings.

papa murphys thin delight

along with thin crust, they also offer it in veggie, with fresh spinach and lots of other veggies. You can ask them to cut back on the cheese when you order.

Try Amy's Roasted Vegetable pizza for a good change of pace. This will sound weird, but it is awesome... It has a sweet balsamic vingar-based sauce and no cheese, but tons of peppers and artichokes. It's fab... the pizza has three 270 calorie servings, and I usually eat two servings on a splurge and save one for breakfast!

Amy's other pizzas have similar calorie counts and great ingredients.

Any pizza with Soy cheese is going to be lower calorie. It tastes pretty good, and it did not used to.

Bravissimo does a roasted-veggie pizza (frozen) which is pretty low-cal and yummy. I think a little cheaper than Amy's, too.

But there is no substitute for making your own!
