Ordering from Domino's doesn't have to derail your healthy eating efforts. Here are five tips to help you make healthier choices:

1. Choose thin crust.

Opting for thin-crust pizzas is a smart move when you're watching your calorie and carb intake. Thin crusts typically have fewer calories and carbs than regular crusts. They also provide a crispier texture that many people enjoy. By choosing a thin crust, you can still indulge in pizza without consuming excessive calories from the dough.

2. Load up on veggies.

Whether you're customizing a pizza or ordering a salad, loading up on vegetables is a guaranteed way to boost the nutritional value of your meal. Domino's offers a variety of fresh vegetable toppings such as spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes. These veggies are low in calories and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Fiber is a standout nutrient for those on a weight loss diet because it helps promote satiety, keeping you feeling full longer and reducing the temptation to overeat.

3. Watch the cheese.

Cheese adds flavor and richness to pizza, but it also contributes to your meal's calorie and fat content. If you're mindful of your calorie intake, ask for less cheese on your pizza. This can help reduce the overall calorie load while still providing that cheesy goodness.

4. Go easy on the sauces.

Sauces can sneak in extra calories and sodium, especially creamy or rich options like Alfredo or ranch. Opt for lighter sauces such as marinara, which are lower in calories and fat. These sauces still provide flavor without adding unnecessarily excessive calories. If you're ordering wings, consider opting for sauces sparingly or choose to enjoy without dips.

5. Pair your meal with a side salad.

Balancing your meal with a side salad is a great way to increase your vegetable intake and add more nutrients to your meal. Select a salad from the menu with a base of fresh greens like lettuce or spinach and top it with various colorful vegetables. Domino's doesn't offer many salad varieties, but the chain's Garden Salad is the lowest-calorie option.

When choosing dressings, select lighter options such as balsamic vinaigrette, Italian dressing, or oil and vinegar. These dressings typically have fewer calories and less fat than creamy dressings like ranch or Caesar.
