It’s virtually impossible to calculate the number of calories on a homemade pizza. MyFitnessPal will help you track your calorie count per ingredient but as there are so many sizes, toppings and bases it is hard to provide even an estimate. Generally speaking, they will be healthier than takeaway pizzas which are smothered in sugary sauces and cheese.
Mainstream chains like Domino’s and Crust pizza have recently added vegan ranges to their ranks. From a nutritional standpoint a slice of vegan pizza generally has less protein, more fat and around the same number of calories and carbohydrates as a traditional style pizza. They are a great option for those following vegetarian and plant-based diets but they are not necessarily healthier.
What’s the healthiest pizza?
Here is the nutritional value of a slice of your favourite variety of pizza, ranked by calories per slice on a classic base, as per Domino’s official nutritional information. There are only minor nutritional differences between Domino’s, Pizza Hut and other brands. And remember in Australia, you get eight slices per pizza because whoever just has one slice!
If you are ordering takeaway pizza and looking for a low-calorie option opt for a classic pizza base as it has the least number of calories. Ordering thick crust or fancy bases with cheese stuffings is a calorie trap.
