Flatbread pizzas from Uno Chicago Grill
Uno Chicago Grill offers a variety of pizzas, salads and entrees. When you're watching your weight, you'll probably stay away from their deep dish pizzas in favor of those made on flatbread, which are described as "a lighter alternative" to traditional pizza. This section of the menu has a handful of gourmet options. The Roasted Eggplant, Spinach & Feta pizza is topped with sun-dried and plum tomatoes, caramelized onions, basil pesto and mozzarella. With no meat in sight and healthy veggies galore, it sure sounds like a dieter's dream, right? Then there's Uno's Mediterranean pizza. The Mediterranean diet gets plenty of good press as a healthy way to eat and shed pounds. This pizza is very similar to the first (spinach, tomatoes, basil pesto, feta) but also has kalamata olives and Parmesan cheese. Between these two very similar pizzas with two very different nutrient breakdowns, which is lower in fat?
