How many calories are in a slice of pizza?

There are 200-300 calories in a slice of pizza.

The calorie count depends on the size of the pizza, type of crust, and the toppings.

1 slice of a 12 inch pizza

1 slice  = 1/8 of a pizza (regular or original crust)

  • On average, a slice of cheese pizza has about 200 calories.
  • On average, a slice of pepperoni  pizza has about 210 calories.

A slice of cheese pizza has almost as many calories as a slice of pepperoni.  This is probably because cheese pizza usually comes with extra cheese.

1 slice of a 14 inch pizza

1 slice = 1/8 of a pizza (regular or original crust)

  • On average, a slice of cheese pizza has about 280 calories.
  • On average, a slice of pepperoni pizza has about 300 calories.

A slice of pizza will probably have more calories if it has a thicker crust or comes with more toppings.
