Domino's Pizza offers a variety of foods beside pizza, including sandwiches, sides, desserts and drinks. Here I compare nutritional values in a variety of their pizzas, from plain cheese to meat and vegetarian options. Dieters and diabetics should take note of the steep calorie and carbohydrate differences between thin crust and deep dish pizzas. The extra-doughy deep dish contains nearly twice as many carbohydrates as the thin crust and is considerably higher in sodium, dietary fibre, and iron.

One slice of a large, thin crust cheese pizza, or one-eighth of a pie, contains 238 calories, 19 grams of carbohydrates, nine grams of protein, six grams of saturated fat and one gram of dietary fibre. It has 560 milligrams of sodium, but provides 21%, or 210 milligrams, of a day's calcium needs. The same thin crust slice of a medium pizza has 174 calories and 14 grams of carbohydrates.
Exchange crusts for a deep dish pie and the totals jump to 334 calories, 40 grams of carbohydrates, 12 grams of protein and five grams of dietary fibre. Sodium intake nearly doubles, but due to the fortified dough, iron intake quadruples, from an insignificant amount to 1.5 milligrams.
A thin crust slice of pepperoni contains almost the exact same nutritional information as a thin crust slice of cheese, though it is lower in calcium at 150 milligrams and higher in iron at 1.5 milligrams.
Switching to a large deep dish pepperoni pizza provides 50 more calories than deep dish cheese, but also offers up 14 grams of protein and a slight increase in iron.
Adding fruit on a pizza provides some health benefits by dramatically reducing sodium intake. A large slice of thin crust pineapple contains 206 calories, 22 grams of carbohydrates, and seven grams of protein. It has roughly half the saturated fats of a large slice of cheese pizza and 40% less sodium.
A large deep dish slice of pineapple produces 346 calories and 43 grams of carbohydrates, while producing similar jumps in sodium and other nutrients.
Domino's thin crust MeatZZa Feast, featuring pepperoni, Italian sausage, and ham, is rich in protein, iron, and dietary fibre, but also sodium and saturated fats. A single slice has 800 milligrams of sodium, twice the recommended amount for a single meal. The deep-dish MeatZZa Feast has 438 calories and 42 grams of carbohydrates, but has nearly 20% of a day's total need for iron.
A single slice of Domino's Vegi Feast on a thin crust is equivalent to one slice of cheese on a thin crust, except that it is 25% lower in saturated fats while having twice the dietary fibre and three times the iron. The vegetables and extra dough in a deep-dish slice of Vegi Feast make it high in carbohydrates at 43 grams. It also contains 13 grams of protein, five grams of dietary fibre, and 760 milligrams of sodium.
