Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the Power BI report in the above folder.  You should see that it contains a breakdown of the calorie count for different types of Pizza Express pizza:

Pizza calories table

The data is correct as of March 2019, and was downloaded from the Pizza Express website.


Create a pie (or pizza?) chart to compare the average calories for the 3 different types of pizza:

Pie chart

Add a legend to your pie chart (to appear at the bottom centre) and configure your data labels to show the category and detail value for each slice.


Add a doughnut (leggera?) chart to show the breakdown of calories by pizza:

Average calories by pizza

The chart should show average calories for each pizza.

Always remember that you can use the Format Painter tool to copy the format from one visual to another.

Configure your visual interactions so that when you click on a type of pizza in the first chart, it filters the data in the second one.  When you click on the Leggera data type in the first chart, this is what the second should show:

Calories by pizza

The button to edit interactions is on the Format menu.

Save your report as The Hole Truth, then close it down.
