This Is The Most Nutritious Fast Food Pizza You Can Buy

Alongside debates about whether aliens actually exist at Area 51 and who really assassinated JFK (two extremely popular topics of conversation, according to Insider), it is strange that conspiracy theorists do not devote more time to discussing pizza.

Commonly smothered with tomato sauce and topped with a layer of melted mozzarella, pizza is a powerful and highly respected god of the food world. Yet despite pizza being loaded with the health benefits of tomatoes (which BBC Good Food notes include being packed full of vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well potentially reducing the chances of stroke and heart disease), the classic weekend treat is seen as a junk food menace.

This is probably because pizzas are typically piled high with layers of cheese, accompanied by bulging stuffed crusts, and garnished with wild varieties of meats and sauces. The NHS makes clear that it's these types of processed foods that impact the nutrition of pizza by adding salt, sugar, and fat to the mix. Now, though, research has revealed the wonders of a relatively healthy pizza — and from one of the most well-known fast-food joints, no less!

Domino's has one of the most nutritious pizzas on the market

Eat This, Not That! reports that Domino's Thin Crust with Light Cheese and Veggies pizza is the health icon that aficionados have been dreaming of all along. Weighing in at 270 calories with 13 grams of fat per quarter, the Domino's pizza has gained credit for limiting cheese while boosting vegetables, making it one of the healthiest fast-food pizza on the market.

Pizza Hut's Veggie Lover's thin crust contains 360 calories and 12 grams of fat, so Domino's certainly comes out on top. When compared to Papa Murphy's crustless Garden Veggie, though, Domino's entry in the race seemingly falls behind this option's 200 calories and 14 grams of fat.

It is also noted by Eat This, Not That! that the healthiest meat topping to look for is grilled chicken, while opting for a thin pizza crust is a good tactic for restricting calories. Also, red sauces are believed to contain more nutrients and less calories than white sauces because they are not as thick or creamy, making them the far less guilty option, too.
