How to eat healthy at Domino's Pizza
Eating healthy at Domino's Pizza is not too difficult since you can get all the basic food groups -- bread, vegetables, cheese and meats -- in a single slice of pizza. However, you need to know how each ingredient figures in the picture and the following will give you a breakdown of the items on Domino's Pizza menu.
Order slices from a smaller pizza rather than a larger one. Larger pizzas are divided into more pieces, but there are still more calories in a slice from a large pizza than one from a small pizza.
Have a piece of the crunchy thin crust which will have 80 calories and 3.5 g (0.12 oz) of fat versus the classic hand tossed or ultimate deep dish which has 160 calories and 3 and 6 g (0.11 and 0.21 oz) of fat respectively.
Choose a topping. For meat toppings, ham is your best choice since it only has 10 calories and 0 g of fat. Sausage contains the most calories--45--and has 0 g of fat. For veggies, you have a wide variety that have 0 calories and 0 g of fat. Some of these are onions, green peppers, mushrooms, anchovies and jalapeños.

Enjoy a side item. A garden fresh salad with 70 calories and 4 g (0.14 oz) of fat or a grilled chicken Caesar salad with 100 calories and 4.5 g (0.15 oz) of fat are both good choices. However, unless you add the light Italian dressing with 20 calories and 1 g (0.4 oz) of fat or eat it without dressing, you will increase your calories by over 200 and grams of fat by at least 22 (or 0.78 oz).
Add a different side item. Breadsticks have 130 calories and 7 g (1/4 oz) of fat whereas Barbecue Buffalo Wings have 230 calories and 14 g (1/2 oz) of fat.
- Be careful which salad dressing you choose.
