8. Calculating energy of pizza dough ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Pizza is a famous specialty of Italian cuisine made from thin dough on which, in addition to tomato sauce, you can put various types of cheese, meat, vegetables, spices and even fruit. We can use the knowledge of mathematics about direct proportion and decimal numbers to calculate the caloric value of pizza dough, as well as to make the dough according to the recipe. For example, one tablespoon of olive oil is added to pizza dough, which is 17 grams, and 100 grams of olive oil has 896 calories.

By setting a direct proportion

896 calories…….100 grams

x calories ………..17 grams



x=152.32 We get that the caloric value of olive oil in pizza dough is 152.32 calories.
