Eating Healthy at Domino's Pizza

From SparkPeople’s Editors

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.
