Toppers Pizza is a restaurant chain that offers pizza, wings, subs and other fast food fare. According to the official website for Toppers Pizza, the chain opened its first location in Champaign, Ill., in 1991. As of 2008, Toppers Pizza had 20 locations in six states. If you're on a diet, you should carefully assess the nutrition facts of menu items before eating.
Pepperoni pizza is a standard variety at most pizzerias, including Toppers Pizza. Each slice of pepperoni pizza contains 270 to 370 calories, depending on the size. On average, each slice provides 13 grams of fat, with 35.5 grams of carbohydrates and 13 grams of protein. If you base your diet on the suggested daily intake of 2,000, then each slice of Toppers pepperoni pizza provides an average of 15 percent of your daily calories.
If you are looking for a slightly lower calorie option, then you may want to try Toppers Pizza's cheese pizza. The cheese pizza at Toppers contains about 130 calories per slice for standard mozzarella (if you prefer to branch out into cheddar, asiago, pepper jack or feta, you're looking at 140-340 extra calories per slice). Each slice contains eight grams of fat, with 31 grams of carbohydrates and 11 grams of protein.
Mac 'N Cheese and Wings
Two of Toppers other favorite menu offerings include their Mac 'N Cheese dishes, and their wings. If you're looking to pack in half of your daily calorie allotment in a Toppers meal, Mac 'N Cheese will help you in this endeavor:

- Loaded Tater Mac — 1,030 calories per dish
