As if pizza wasn’t bad enough before; Domino’s created a dessert pizza! Oreo pizza, is the newest addition to the Domino’s menu. This calorie break down doesn’t seem that bad… however, how many people do you know that only eat 1 or 2 slices of pizza?? Most men can eat a whole medium pizza with now problem.
The worst thing about the pizza isn’t the calories or fat (even though they are pretty bad), it’s the SODIUM!!! Your daily intake of sodium is 2,300 mg per day. One slice of dessert pizza has 1,090 mgs! If the fat doesn’t bloat you for several days after then the sodium will! If you think you are doing 1 “cheat day,” it could take you 2-3 days to recover from the increased sodium!
Keep in mind that this is the calorie break down for cheese pizza without any meat toppings! This is Pepperonie pizza….

If you are going to eat pizza then try to get thin crust, cheese only. Try to limit how many pieces you have and make sure to drink A LOT of water to flush out the sodium. Personally, I’ll pass on the saturated fat, sodium, and excess calories! Eat smart so you can eat more!
