Pizza came out winning with a slight advantage and this time around, we are going to put Pizza under the scanner once again and this time, it will be against Doughnut.

When it comes to calories per 100 grams, Pizza packs a calorie count of 266. This was good enough to beat hamburger as well. As far as Doughnut goes, it packs around 452 calories per 100 grams which means that Doughnut helps you give more energy when consumed.

Total Fat

Fat is something that we want to avoid so the food item with the least value will get the win in this category. Doughnut carries a fat of 25 grams per 100 gram when Pizza carries just 10 grams of fat making Pizza the winner in this one.

Protein in our system is always a good idea. Doughnuts carry 4.9 grams of protein from a 100-gram sample when Pizza have 11 gram which is a whopping 22 percentage of the whole food. I think we all know who the winner here is.

Winner: Pizza

Once again, the winner will be chosen based on cholesterol. Cholesterol should be low for a healthier food, in case you were having doubts. In this case, Doughnut has a cholesterol amount of 19 mg per 100 g when Pizza has a cholesterol value of 17 mg per 100 gram

Winner: Pizza
