Export food eaten/logged or a report like on the iphone app
The app and website might as well be two different platforms entirely they're so dissimilar. Unfortunately the website/desktop site lacks big time with respect to reporting. Can you not screenshot the app?

Entering foods in to data base.
Commercial pizza? As in, packaged? I thought they were legally required to provide all the nutritional info (micro and macro).

If you're talking about home made, you need to track the totals of the constituent ingredients yourself and enter the total. If you're having a portion of the meal, scale the item accordingly. Definitely not user friendly and not necessarily intuitive, I'll give you that.

Alternatively you can try adding a 'meal' which basically groups ingredients/components in the fatsecret database.

Calculating calories for smaller amounts of food
The calories are a consequence of the nutritional components, you can't have one without the other.

If you really don't care about the macros (and in my opinion everyone should) you can always 'cheat' when creating a new food and simply add it all as carbs.

Calories = total carbs x 4

Total Carbs = (Calories/4)

Then enter 0 for the other macronutrients. This is a big cheat, and I don't advocate for it, but it will solve your issue.

How to figure calories?
You should always enter the raw ingredients, as that's what nutritional profiles are based off of.

Sometimes you'll see there is an option to enter the mass of a cooked item, which will give you the scaled calories.

In general, cooking *doesn't* remove calories. Your potato is lighter after microwaving due to water loss, not nutrient loss. The calories are the same.

Amount of calories and exercise to lose weight

This is how you burn body-fat:

#1: Devour Food With A Low Glycemic Load!
#2: Devour Food With A High Nutrient Density!
#3: Devour A Micro-Feast Every 2 to 3 Hours!

If you want, I can send you more details on how to do this...

#1. Has nothing to do with calories.

#2. Has everything to do with preference.

#3. Is also just a preference. The total thermic effect of food is the same regardless of meal frequency.

The most important thing is just calorie deficit. That's it. It's really very simple. Why do we make up excuses and magic approaches?
