yeah, that's the big question. do they charge a skinny price?

i saw on the news today that it drops the average slice from 290 calories to 210. big deal.

Anyway, the whole point of pizza is that it's fattening. It's comfort food.

When the boss is driving you to drink or your boyfriend has dumped you or you're just feeling down - Pizza!

I don't eat pizza often, but when I do, I want it to be a big thick slice with lots of my favorite toppings!

Agreed. People don't think healthy eating when reaching for pizza. What's next? Skinny beer battered fish and chips?

When we eat or drink the forbidden stuff, we eat it as it's supposed to be or just skip t. Why not even bother? Pizza needs lots of stuff and hot fudge sundaes need whipped cream on top.

wow, i disagree in part.

we often eat healthy pizza. thin crust, aromatic sauce, no cheese dump but rather a spot here and there without. it's a beautiful thing.

veggie toppings if really necessary to fill you up.

garbage pies have their place too. but that's like eating a burger with everything, or an omelette with everything every time.

We love pizza done with a prebaked flour tortilla, a spoonful of homemade pizza sauce, and some pepperoni, mushrooms, sliced scallions, and shredded mozarella. Bake in the toaster oven. It's really as good as Papa Murphy's.

my mom used to make tortilla, pita, and english muffin pizzas; all as good as any chain bs.

i guess i'm spoiled to live in one of the 4 world capitals of pizza. (real pizza, not weird, fusion stuff). i can get great pizzas from dozens of places within 15 minutes of my house.
