Pizza offers few concerns about calories

* Item: Heavens' Bistro 98 Percent Fat Free Pizzas

* What you get: 3 servings per 15.5-ounce pizza

* Cost: $5.40

* Preparation time: 1 minute in microwave, then 10 to 12 minutes in oven for soft crust, 13 to 18 minutes for crisp crust

* Review: Fat-free pizza might seem like an oxymoron, but Heavens' Bistro appears to be on to something. This is pizza you can enjoy without worrying too much about calories. We tried the Barbeque Chicken flavor with white meat chicken, red onion and cilantro as well as the Grilled Vegetable with red, yellow and green bell peppers, red onion and mushrooms. Both are topped with a blend of fat-free mozzarella and provolone cheeses, and offer an interesting blend of flavors. My only quibble would be with the servings. If you're a real pizza lover, you'll easily finish most of the 15.5-ounce pie yourself. The company also offers a Turkey Pepperoni flavor.
