Eating Healthy at Domino's Pizza

Pizza is popular, and Domino's is one of the most prevalent and affordable chains out there. Domino's is known for bargains and creative toppings--like the recent American Legends line--and is a carb lovers' paradise. Still, you can find some options that meet our dietary guidelines.

  • Pile on the vegetables--black olives, mushrooms, green peppers, and onions--to bulk up your pizza and get in a serving of vegetables while keeping calories low.

  • The type of crust you order does make a difference. Thin crust is your best choice (deep dish is always the worst, regardless of the location). You'll save at least 80 calories a slice.

  • Try sharing a medium pizza and have just one or two slices. Round out your meal with a salad or fruit.

  • Here are some sample calorie counts for one slice of a medium, thin crust pie:

    • Vegi Feast Pizza with green pepper, onion, mushroom, black olive, extra cheese: 160 calories, 9.5 g fat, and 355 mg sodium.
    • Hawaiian Feast Pizza with ham, pineapple and extra cheese: 170 calories, 9.5 g fat, and 405 mg sodium.
    • Philly Steak Feast Pizza with Philly meat, mushroom, green pepper, onion, provolone cheese and American cheese: 180 calories, 10.5 g fat, and 375 mg sodium.

  • If you're watching fat intake, limit the amount of cheese, pepperoni, bacon, sausage, Philly meat, ham and beef on your pie.

  • If you're trying to keep your sodium intake as low as possible, limit toppings such as black olives, sausage, ham, bacon, and anchovies.

  • If you're venturing away from pizza, remember to halve whatever you choose, as calories and fat are probably higher than you might like.

  • Carbs baked inside more carbs? Never a good choice. The bread bowl pasta had more than 600 calories per serving (that's for half of a "bowl").

  • The pasta here is high in calories, and there is no whole-wheat version. If you choose this, share it with a friend. Most options are more than 600 calories per serving. Half a portion could make a good meal. Pasta Primavera is your best choice with 270 calories, 13.5 g fat, and 385 mg sodium for a half serving. Adding extra vegetables can bulk up your pasta for almost no calories.

  • If you choose an Oven-Baked Sandwich, plan to eat just half. Your best choice would be the Philly Cheese Steak with extra veggies, which has 348 calories, 13.5 g fat, and 1,040 mg sodium for a half sandwich.

  • Plain breadsticks are a better choice than Cheesy Bread or Cinna Stix. Each breadstick has 110 calories, 6 g fat, and 100 mg sodium.

  • Domino's has salads, too. The Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad has 245 calories, 6.5 g fat, and 380 mg sodium. The Light Italian Dressing is your best dressing choice, with 20 calories, 1 g fat, and 780 mg sodium per serving.
