    Generally tans fat would be a higher risk in foods that are deep fried, pizzas should be mostly fine but cheese if its not a good cheese may have trans fats. Some processed meats may also have tarns fats.

    Since every pizza is different, you would have to ask them. In New York, those figures should be readily available.

    You would have to ask the cooks. Every pizzeria is different. I work at a pizzeria. We use regular soybean oil for the pizza but we use trans fats in the fryer.

  • If you're going to a mom & pop pizza place they're not using product with trans fats or hydrogenated oils.  They're using olive oil (which is not hydrogenated) and meat & cheese that does not have trans fats.

    If it's real, hand made pizza dough, it will be made of flour, water, and salt. If the rest of it is all authentic it's all just plants and animals. Cheese, tomato, olive oil, pepper, garlic, etc. However, you don't always know if they use something pre-made from a can or whatever which may have that stuff in it.

    I'm not sure about every state but I'm fairly sure all restaurants are legally required to have an ingredients list and nutritional facts. All you have to do is ask. A big enough place might have it on their website.

    Do you have authentic New York Style pizza? Do you use tap or filtered water? Is the water ozone treated? Does your water contain fluoride? Are your cows that make the cheese free range? Do you use wheat that has been treated with pesticides? Are your tomatoes 100% organic? Which variety are your tomatoes? Do you use animal-style rennet or is it plant based? Is your olive oil from Italy? Which city? Is your oil hydrogenated? 

    If you have to ask those questions, you don't know $H|T about pizza. The only way hydrogenated oil gets into pizza is if you are buying it frozen or premade and it's sitting on a grocery store shelf, because you're too damned stupid to make it yourself, SIR. 

    Hydrogenated oil is in margarine and other imitation $h|T, just like your question is, you stupid worthless troll....

    While it may be possible that it is trans-fat free, I have to doubt it because the ingredients that any eatery buys comes from wholesalers. So even if the dough is made from scratch, the oil they use may be processed oil (which is much cheaper than whole unprocessed oil). Also the other ingredients such as pepperoni, sausages, some types of cheeses, and others could have add hydrogenated oil. Plus, the aging process of such things as pepperoni and sausages creates trace amounts of trans-fat - it's not a high amount per serving, but if you ate a large or several servings, the accumulative amount could be high.

    There is really no way of knowing if your pizzeria is trans-fat or hydrogenated oil free. The only real way to have a pizza that is, will be to make it your own.  It isn't hard.

    You could make the dough or you could use a bread maker to make the dough. You could even buy pre-made crusts or even pre-made pizza dough and they will have nutrition labels on them. The rest, you simply buy the ingredients making sure to real the nutrition label AND ingredient. 

    Notice the part about reading also the ingredients.  This is because under US laws, it is legal to list trans-fat as 0 if the amount per serving is 0.5 grams or less.  So, zero does not really mean zero.  However, by law they have to list the ingredients such as hydrogenated oil and that will tip you off because there is no such thing as a hydrogenated oil that is trans-fat free.
