Pizza Hut Nutrition Facts and Healthiest Menu Options

Pizza Hut nutrition factsWhen you think of Pizza Hut, or any other pizza chain for that matter, chances are “nutrition” is not the first word that comes to mind. Pizza Hut has long been known for their slabs of thick, greasy pizza.

But here’s something you won’t find at most pizza joints. Pizza Hut now has several “Fit ‘n Delicious” menu options to help you eat smart(er) when you want to indulge in some pizza once in a while (like most of us do).

The important thing to remember when eating pizza is moderation, moderation, moderation!

Few people have the self-discipline to limit themselves to a slice or two, but that’s exactly what you should do. Here’s how:

1. Drink a glass of water before you start eating. This helps fill you up so you eat less.

2. Eat a big ‘ole salad loaded with greens, other veggies, and oil and vinegar dressing before you eat your pizza.

3. Enjoy your 1-2 slices.

Pretty simple, right? And it works. It’s a safe way to allow yourself to enjoy some pizza once in a while without the guilt.

Now, 2 slices of some certain types of pizza at Pizza Hut can still do serious damage though. Like these:

 

  • Richard Simmons screamingLarge Supreme Pan Pizza (2 slices): 840 calories, 46 grams of fat (16 saturated), 76 grams of carbs, 1840 milligrams of sodium
  • Large Meat Lover’s Pan Pizza (2 slices): 960 calories, 56 grams of fat (20 saturated, 1 trans), 74 grams of carbs, 2360 milligrams of sodium
  • Large Pepperoni Lover’s Pan Pizza (2 slices): 860 calories, 46 grams of fat (18 saturated), 74 grams of carbs, 2140 milligrams of sodium
  • Meat Lover’s Garlic Parmesan Hand-tossed Pizza (2 slices): 880 calories, 46 grams of fat (20 saturated, 1 trans), 78 grams of carbs, 2580 milligrams of sodium
  • Meat Lover’s Personal Pan Pizza: 830 calories, 46 grams of fat (17 saturated, 1 trans), 68 grams of carbs, 2110 milligrams of sodium

 

Pizza Hut Nutrition Facts: Healthy Menu Options

 

As you can see, finding a healthy pizza is usually a difficult task. Pizza Hut has their share of greasy, carb- and sodium-filled foods, but their Fit n’ Delicious menu offers some much healthier alternatives to your traditional pizza, without sacrificing taste. They use a thinner crust (I’d still like to see whole wheat though) and less cheese, resulting in a just-as-tasty pizza with less carbs, fat, and calories.

This should go without saying, but skip the breadsticks and appetizers. Get a side salad with low fat dressing along with one of the menu choices below and you’ll be in good shape:

 

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Diced Chicken, Red Onion, & Green Pepper Pizza: 360 calories, 46 g carbs, 9 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 22 g protein, 1020 mg sodium

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Diced Chicken, Mushroom, & Jalapeno Pizza: 340 calories, 44 g carbs, 9 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 22 g protein, 1440 mg sodium

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Ham, Red Onion, & Mushroom Pizza: 320 calories, 46 g carbs, 9 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 16 g protein, 1100 mg sodium

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Ham, Pineapple, & Tomato Pizza: 320 calories, 48 g carbs, 9 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 14 g protein, 1100 mg sodium

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Green Pepper, Red Onion, & Tomato Pizza: 300 calories, 48 g carbs, 8 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 12 g protein, 800 mg sodium

• 2 Slices of 12” Fit n’ Delicious Tomato, Mushroom, & Jalapeno Pizza: 300 calories, 46 g carbs, 8 g fat, 3 g saturated fat, 12 g protein, 1220 mg sodium

Bottom Line: If you stick to the Fit n’ Delicious choices above, Pizza Hut is a solid choice for indulging in pizza once in a while. Pizza is obviously not something you should be eating on a regular basis, but stick to these options whenever you eat pizza, watch your portion size (limit it to two slices), and you’ll save thousands of calories (and a few pounds) every year.
