Pizza Hut's Big New Yorker Pizza
First a couple of "Fun Facts" about Pizza Hut's Big New Yorker Pizza, compliments of the company's Web site:
- The Big New Yorker plain cheese pizza weighs about three pounds before baking (the Italian sausage and mushroom pizza weighs 3-1/2 pounds).
- There are 60 slices of pepperoni on The Big New Yorker pepperoni pizza.
And there's this Fun Fact for those who have not seen the commercials: "The Big New Yorker Pizza has a new extra large delivery pouch and cutting board because it's too big for our current pouches and cutting boards."
When it comes to pizza, bigger is not better. Even if you split the Big New Yorker cheese pizza with three other people, for example, your two slices still end up with almost a full day's saturated fat (17 grams) and sodium (2,200 mg).
And at 790 calories, you may want to add a notch to your belt. That's without sausage, pepperoni, "pork topping," or anything else.
To your heart, your waistline, and your blood pressure, each slice of the average Big New Yorker Pizza is a McDonald's Quarter Pounder. The only difference: Most people stop at one burger.
