Ham and Pineapple Pizza

Lunch Option 2: Pizza

Restaurant Meal: Pizza Hut Ham & Pineapple 6-inch Personal Pan Pizza―$4.06
Homemade Alternative: Ham and Pineapple Pizza―$1.90

Premade pizza crust and commercial pasta sauce make this pizza a cinch to assemble, and chipped leftover ham makes it tasty. With just 298 calories and 7.9 grams of fat (3.7 grams saturated) for 2 slices, it's a more nutritious choice than the slices you'll find at most pizza parlors. As one example, Pizza Hut's Ham & Pineapple 6-inch Personal Pan Pizza has 550 calories and 20 grams of fat (8 grams saturated).
