Pizza Hut UK Calories: What Can You Pick for 400,500 or 600 Calories?

It’s pizza night and you and your friends are off to Pizza Hut. Will it be pepperoni or Hawaiian? Or maybe a combination of two. But before you order, you want to check how badly it’s going to damage your diet plan.

Well, the truth is, there’s a reason why pizzas are not generally regarded as the world’s healthiest food. Due to the amount of cheese, bread, and high sodium content that make a pizza taste so good, they aren’t the lowest calorie item on the planet.

So before you peruse Louisa Smith’s guide to Pizza Hut Calories, it’s good to manage your expectations. You’re not going to find a whole pizza for less than 700 calories at Pizza Hut, but you can have a slice or four.

And this does not apply strictly to Pizza Hut either, it’s just a pizza thing (as you’ll see if you also check out our guide to Dominos calories). 

And, as life is too short NOT to eat pizza, that’s okay – that’s why we’re going this, so you know quite how much pizza you can eat and still not bust your calorie budget – because, that’s what healthy eating is all about – moderation.

Read on to find out the lowest calorie meals at Pizza Hut UK – oh, and just a quick note. These are the dine in calories – delivery might differ slightly.    

Is Pizza Hut UK Healthy?

Pizza Hut is one of the most popular pizza chains in the UK, and the world, with over 17,639 stores globally. As far as whether Pizza Hut is healthy, well, it’s not a salad!

But, they do try and pride themselves on their ingredients.

They claim that all of their meat and milk is Red Tractor or equivalent. The seafood is also line and pole caught in an effort to preserve our vast ocean’s ecosystem from overfishing

They are also very proud of their British heritage. Even though they have expanded globally, all of their cheese is purchased from within the UK and Ireland.

As well as making an effort to use only the top quality products, they are also making a real effort to become a more environmentally conscious enterprise.

Their goal is to reduce their carbon footprint to Net Zero by 2030. Since 2017, Pizza Hut has been introducing non-meat alternatives to its menu to not only cater to the vegan and vegetarian community but also reduce its contribution to carbon emissions. 

As well as taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint, they are also reducing their food waste through a number of initiatives, including donating surplus buffet pizza to good causes at more than 50% of their restaurants. 

So while it’s not healthy food, you can be sure it’s good food made with good produce.

So, now let’s start from the top (ping) and break down the calories.


The Lowest Calorie Choice at Pizza Hut UK

The lowest calorie, whole meal item at Pizza Hut comes from the Flatbread menu – this is not a huge surprise as this section of the menu is marked as 550 calories or below.

So, if you don’t want to worry about willpower – pick the Virtuous Veggie Flatbread which comes in at 440 calories – and load up on veggies at the free salad bar. Meal done for under 600 calories easily.

You can also easily create an under 600 calorie meal from the Salad Station if you don’t go overboard on some of the seriously calorific options (more on those later).

If you do want pizza, and you want to stick with a calorie budget you’re going to need to use some willpower…


The Lowest Calorie Pizza at Pizza Hut UK

The lowest calorie choice at Pizza Hut UK is an individual thin (11”) Vegan Hot ‘N’ Spicy pizza at 132 calories per slice.

However, if you are ordering a whole pizza, there will be six slices in total. That brings your whole pizza up to 792 calories in total. 

So, to creep in to the under 600 calories the NHS say is a healthy amount for lunch or dinner, you’re going to have to stick to four slices – and save the other two until tomorrow!

If you want something with a little meat on it, then the lowest calorie meaty pizza at Pizza Hut UK is the Individual Thin (11”) Hawaiian pizza at 148 calories per slice – again, you can enjoy four slices of that one.

A close second for those who disagree with pineapple on pizza would be the Individual thin Hot ‘N’ Spicy Chicken pizza at 160 per slice. Technically four slices of that one takes you over – but who is counting!

Of course there are far more options for you on the menu to pick from than these three, so if you’re favourite isn’t listed, you can check out our at a glance guide below which tells you which pizzas offer an option of three slices for under 400. 500 or 600 calories.

If your normal choice isn’t on there, then head to the Pizza Hut nutrition information to find the numbers for your favourite option.

What a Difference a Base Makes

When you’re ordering a pizza, what goes on top is only part of the decision – the base can also change things up a lot. That Vegan Hot and Spicy pizza almost doubles in calories per slice between a Individual Thin and a Sharing Pan!

So, here’s the skinny on the bases.

The lowest calorie choice is always an Individual Thin

Next lowest is the Gluten Free 9″ Square – this (usually) has just 4 calories more per slice than the Individual Thin

Individual Pan 9″ is the next best choice – this normally has around 17-20 calories more per slice than the Individual Thin

The three most calorific options are

The Sharing Stuffed Crust – which has about 120 calories more per slice than the Individual Thin

The Cheesy Bites – which, again, is about 120 calories more per slice than the Indvidual Thin

The Sharing Pan – which has about 90-100 calories more per slice than the Individual Thin


The Lowest Calorie Flatbreads at Pizza Hut UK

As we said, the lowest calorie flatbread at Pizza Hut UK is the Vegan Virtuous Veg Flatbread at 401 calories.

If you want your cheese to be dairy-based, then the second lowest-calorie flatbread is the Virtuous Veg Flatbread at 439 calories.

But, if you’re aiming for under 600 calories, all the other flatbreads on the menu fit the bill.



Lowest Calorie Pasta at Pizza Hut UK

There are two options on the pasta menu – Lasagne or Mac ‘N’ Cheese. Both, are super calorific. The lowest calorie option is the Lasagne at 790 calories per serving.

If you want garlic bread with that, which you will because it’s delicious, it’s another 128 calories. Eek. 

Do we dare tell you what the Mac ‘N’ Cheese comes to? Oh, go on then, because you’re so curious. It’s 824 calories per serving. Yep, we didn’t make that up.

What are the Lowest Calorie Salad Station Options at Pizza Hut UK? 

You have to admire the Pizza Hut nutritional information for the dedication to the cause – they even list the calories of every individual item on the salad bar!

If you’re a fan of the salad station, then here are your lowest-calorie salad station options. The lowest choice at the salad bar is the jalapenos at just 2 calories per 20g serving.

Not surprisingly the lettuce mix, cucumbers, mixed pepper, cherry tomatoes are all on the ‘eat as much as you can carry’ list. Even the ‘mayo’-based goodies – the potato salad and coleslaw aren’t too bad if you keep to one scoop.

The ones to watch are the dried items – croutons, bacon bits, sultanas and crispy onions! The bacon bits and crispy onions both come in over 100 calories per 20g, so if you’re really trying to keep the calories down, then maybe skip past those or just choose one. 

For dressings, a salsa dressing will be your lowest calorie option at just 12 calories per 20g serving.


Lowest Calorie Vegetarian Options at Pizza Hut UK

For vegetarians, the lowest calorie option would be to serve yourself a salad from the salad station (see above). However, if you’re taking a trip to Pizza Hut UK you must be wanting a pizza.

In that case, the lowest calorie vegetarian pizza is a tie between the individual thin (11”) Veggie pizza and the individual thin (11”) Veggie Pepperphoni pizza, both at 144 calories per slice. 




Lowest Calorie Vegan Options at Pizza Hut UK

The lowest calorie vegan option would be to choose from the salad bar and create a hearty salad. However, you’ve come to Pizza Hut and they have a variety of vegan pizzas available, so you’re probably wanting to try one, right?

The lowest calorie vegan pizza at Pizza Hut UK is the individual thin (11”) Vegan Hot ‘N’ Spicy Veggie pizza at 132 calories per slice.

A close second would be an individual thin (11”) Vegan Veggie pizza at 135 per slice.


The Lowest Calorie Sides at Pizza Hut UK

The lowest calorie side dish at Pizza Hut UK is the Southern Fried Nuggets at 248 calories per 120g portion. Following second to that is the Oven-Baked Onion Rings at 303 calories. 

Sadly, Pizza Hut UK’s side dishes are quite high in calories and are mostly over 350 calories. The fries (fried) are a whopping 702 calories per 250g portion! Whatttt!


Lowest Calorie Table Top Sauces & Takeaway Dip Pots at Pizza Hut UK

The lowest calorie tabletop sauce is mayonnaise at 77 calories per 100g. I know we all love the takeaway garlic mayo dip, but it is 89 calories per 25g. The lowest calorie takeaway dipping pot is the BBQ sauce dip pot at 35 calories per 25g.

UK Pizza Hut Calories at a Glance:

If you’re in a hurry and need to choose fast, take a look at the below options to find a low-calorie option that’s right for you. Please note that the pizza calories are PER SLICE, not per pizza.
