Is eating too much pizza and calzones bad for you?

Hi. I am curious. Since my mother has been away, I have been keeping my self busy with housework and taking of other business. I explained in another thread what happened and that I still have a lot of decluttering to do.

I haven't always had time to run down to my local plaza and buy groceries. There are places I can go to get free food but I haven't made the time to go over to these places to pick the food up. I have to call one such place and make sure that the business of me having the proper I.D. that I need is squared away.

Since I haven't always had the time to go out and get food, I have ordered pizza and/or calzones.

I don't know how many I have ordered and consumed since my mother has been away but it's been a bunch. She's been away for about 3 months as of the time of the posting of this thread.

I have often ordered pizza and/or calzones because I either haven't had enough time to go out and get food, or because there's a scarcity of food and I am waiting on getting my clothes together and I need to eat something, or because once in a while I am not up to cooking anything.

Some people I know told me they put sugar in pizza crust. I presume they do that to the bread they make calzones with too.

Is eating too much pizza and calzones bad?

I am not an expert on diet and nutrition. I know I need to be eating healthier. Please help. Thank you.

I thought about ordering Chinese food but I really didn't want to bother. I prefer ordering food online.

It is a lot easier to order food from a restaurant online, and some pizza places are open late at night.

If eating too much pizza and calzones is bad and if I do need to order delivery food, what food can I order in the place of pizza and calzones that is healthier?

I have ordered salad, pasta and sandwiches from Dominoes and Pizza Hut.

Please help. Thank you.

Too much of any type of food can be dangerous. You indicated salads at times, which is good.

Pizza and calzones as well as Chinese food can have high levels of sodium which can cause your blood pressure to become dangerously high.

There is no such thing as too much pizza.

@oralloy,
Eating things in moderation won't harm you. I am taking about eating pizza and calzones excessively.

I don't comprehend the concept of excess when it comes to pizza.

These things are health foods, how can they be bad for one.

@RABEL222,
What are you referring to as "health foods"? Pizza and calzones? They make the crusts with sugar.

@izzythepush,
What "healthy sugar"? Cane sugar? Too much sugar is bad for you.

@JGoldman10,
But, unfortunately, it's the ultimate indulgence. According to Eat This, Not That, pizza is one of the biggest culprits of saturated fat in the American diet. Saturated fats are dangerous to the heart, as they can clog arteries and put you at risk of heart disease among other ailments.

@JessicaPerry,
Is that what makes pizza and calzones addictive, or is it the sugar they make with them? Or both?

Goldman....I added a recipe for pizza dough so you can see what's in the dough. I'm not suggesting you try to make one at home, just letting you know whats in the dough.

You can look up the science of baking (yes, there is a science) and see that the small amount of sugar keeps the dough from baking into a hard, unchewable disc. The small amount of sugar and salt are necessary to allow the dough to stay flavorful and to brown appropriately.



Ingredients for homemade pizza crust:

2-2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour OR bread flour¹ divided (250-295g)
1 packet instant yeast² (2 1/4 teaspoon)
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and/or dried basil leaves optional
2 Tablespoons olive oil + additional
3/4 cup warm water³ (175ml)

@glitterbag,
I know a young woman who says she makes her own pizza, because she knows fast food pizza companies produce their pizza with sugar.

@JGoldman10,
Goldman, it has to have a small amount of sugar and salt. Otherwise you get a flat tasteless lump of cardboard.....If you don't understand what I have explained to you, just scrape the toppings of the next pizza you order on to the cardboard box and then eat it that way ...... ask your friend if she believes the paper mills add sugar to the cardboard they manufacture.
