There’s a popular pizza website — worstpizza.com — that would probably disagree with Yahoo’s definition of “worst.” In a recent article, the site breaks down the seven “worst” pizzas in America, using health as the means for ranking each place.
According to Yahoo, Sbarro slices unhealthier than those of it’s counterparts. A stuffed pepperoni pizza clocks in at 960 calories, 42 grams of fat, and 3,200 milligrams of sodium. But what about a whole pie? Well an individual classic deep dish pie from Uno’s blows the competition away: 2,310 calories, 162 grams of fat, and 4,920 milligrams of sodium.
Most pizza places in New York City don’t have to post their ingredients or health content. Although personally I’d emphasize quality over health (how unhealthy can a vegetable pie from Roberta’s actually be anyway?), I suppose if I were given a choice between Domino’s, Papa John’s, and Sbarro… knowing this, I might stay away from the latter.
At the end of the day, if you’re on a diet, you’re probably not eating a lot of pizza anyway. And to Yahoo — there’s probably much “worse” pizza out there than Uno’s that happens to bit just a wee bit healthier.
