If you dab the grease off your pizza before your eat it, it turns out you're saving yourself from some serious calories!

A new study shows wiping or dabbing grease off your pizza saves you an average 76 calories (and four and a half grams of fat) per slice.

Based on how much pizza Americans eat per year, that translates to a savings of about 6,600 calories, which means you can eat an additional 20 slices of pizza, if you're so inclined.
