NEWS: Pizzas must shrink or lose their toppings under Government anti-obesity plan
The Government is planning to cap calories in thousands of meals sold in restaurant and supermarkets. Under the draft proposals, a standard pizza for one should contain no more than 928 calories - far less than many sold by takeaways, restaurants and shops. And the recommendations suggest that a savoury pie should contain no more than 695 calories.

Don't take it out on the toppings - the calories and carbs are all in the base.
With Lo-Dough, you can make a perfect 9" inch personal pizza with all your favourite toppings and still be well under government guidelines. Follow our Pizza Perfection Guide and you won't even feel like you're missing out.
We looked at the nutritional values of every pizza base option on the market and at only 39 calories, each Lo-Dough base is a whopping 93% lower in calories and 98% lower in carbs.
Take the classic margarita pizza as an example. There are many misconceptions that toppings are to blame for the heavy calories, but when you swap out your traditional pizza base for Lo-Dough you can make great savings. We compared a standard pizza made with grated mozzarella and our favourite passata by Nowt Poncy. Just look at the difference in calories the base makes. We also swapped out the mozzarella for our low fat cheese of choice is Eatlean Protein Cheese, for even greater calorie savings.
Lo-Dough gives you the freedom to enjoy the foods you love.
Not only does Lo-Dough cut calories and carbs, without losing out on delicious toppings, it also increases your dietary fibre which is crucial for good gut health.
