White pizza can be part of a balanced diet when consumed in moderation. Stick to one or two pieces to keep calories under control. Order a variety of vegetables to get important nutrients.

Identification

White pizza is a type of pizza that is prepared without marinara sauce. In place of marinara, oil, butter or Alfredo sauce may be used. Other seasonings may include garlic, parsley, oregano, basil or black pepper, among other possible choices.

Amount

A slice of white pizza contains about 274 calories, according to the FatSecret website. If you're following a 2,000-calorie diet, two pieces will put you at 27 percent of your daily calorie allotment. A slice contains 9.7 grams of fat, 4.9 grams of which is saturated. It contains 21 milligrams of cholesterol, 511 milligrams of sodium, 75 milligrams of potassium, 34.7 grams of carbohydrate and 11.1 grams of protein.

Tips

The Cleveland Clinic suggests asking for half the cheese when dining out or ordering pizza. To get protein, order a white pizza with chicken. Or make your own pizza with a high-fiber, whole-grain crust. The Cleveland Clinic recommends using nonfat ricotta cheese or a low-fat bottled Alfredo sauce to make a low-fat white pizza.
