Per slice from a small pizza: 330 calories, 13 g fat (6 g sat fat, 0 g trans fat), 630 mg sodium, 38 g carbs (2 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 13 g protein
Niti Patel, MS, RD, and founder of Nutrition Is Today’s Intelligence recommends getting the Pacific Veggie pizza from Domino’s.
“Vegetables are so important to include in every meal and having them on top of a comforting slice of pizza can satisfy a pizza craving without overindulging,” she says. “One pizza slice with vegetables is more filling than a plain cheese slice and will hopefully deter you from overeating.” (Related: 3 Surprising Warning Signs You’re Eating Too Much)
However, if you don’t want to order something off of the specialty menu, Kelli McGrane, RD for the free food tracking app Lose It!, has a favorite custom order.
“My go-to order is a medium-thin crust pizza with tomato sauce, light amount of cheese, premium chicken, roasted red peppers, and pineapple. I’ll also order a classic garden salad on the side for extra vegetables and fiber,” she says.
McGrane opts for a light amount of cheese to cut the amount of saturated fat per slice in half as well as shave off 30 calories.
“To make the pizza more balanced, I always make sure to have at least one vegetable and try to include a source of protein. I opt for premium chicken as I try to avoid processed red meats, like sausage and pepperoni, when possible,” she adds.
