Chances are anyone who's ever dabbed oil from her pizza has been called either maarte or weird (because hey, the oil makes the pizza taste so much better!). TBH anyone can eat pizza the way she wants, and that includes trying to avoid some fat.
But will dabbing your pizza slice with a napkin do anything? Apparently, yes! A study by the science and health magazine LabDoor found that a slice of dabbed pizza has 40.5 fewer calories than its oily counter part. That's a lot as it is, and you'll be doing your calorie-counting self a favor if you have more than one slice. If you consume an average of 46 pizza slices a year (like Americans do), dabbing each one of those can save you from packing two extra pounds. Who knew doing something small can have an impact?
