Domino's Breakdown (It's Pretty Scary)

Domino's Breakdown (It's Pretty Scary)

A few weeks ago, I got all riled up while watching The Biggest Loser. All the food commercials were for seriously crappy food. It seems more than a little mean to advertise calorie laden food during an inspirational weight loss show. Especially if you consider that the majority of viewers are watching to get a little inspiration on their own path to get in shape.

The one that bothered me the most was by Domino's Pizza; they were advertising their amazing Oreo Pizza. What's the deal with that? It's not enough to make decadent, calorie-laden cheese pizzas, so they have to make dessert pizza too? I'm not even going to question how much crap is in it (although this commercial is pretty funny, I can admit that).

We can all agree that it serves no nutritional purpose, but if you're curious to how many calories are in a slice of this Oreo Pizza pie,

Here's the nutritional info on a typical meal from Domino's, including two slices of cheese pizza and one slice of Oreo Pizza. Their website is really sneaky because they give the info for each little part of the pizza. That means you have to do all the work and add up the calories in the crust, the sauce and the cheese in order to figure out how many calories are in one slice.


Item Calories Fat (g) Sat. Fat (g) Sodium (mg.) Carbs (g) Sugar (g) Protein (g)
2 of 8 equal slices of cheese pizza (14-inch Large) 480 18 7 940 84 8 24
1 of 8 equal slices of Oreo Dessert Pizza 120 4 1 110 20 8 2
TOTAL (2 slices cheese pizza, 1 slice Oreo Pizza) 600 22 8 1,050 104 16 26

Now I know pre-made foods are typically high in salt, but yikes! 1,050 mg of sodium is way too much for one meal. Since the RDI of sodium is 2,300 mg a day, that doesn't leave much else for the rest of your day's food. Of course, you've got to splurge on pizza every once in a while, so it's good to know that 480 calories isn't bad for one meal, but I'd probably skip out on the Oreo Dessert Pizza (even if it is free).

If you're tempted to try Domino's Oreo Pizza, check out this video to see what it really looks like.

I like the oreos but the idea of this pizza is a bit much.

Wow..I'm so thinking a slice of Oreo pizza would be a worthy indulgence to put into my food budget for a splurge...at least once. Looks yummy and I thought the commercial was funny too. But, you're right....crappy food ads during Biggest Loser..so not cool.

I'm also from Denmark and I've tasted Orios - they're yum yums. However, I don't see the point in making a pizza out of them, why not just eat the cookies as they are? As for the calorie count... Who eat's only 2 little slices?

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. That looks really disgusting.

Not worth the calories! I don't like Oreos, and make my own pizza at home!

I think anything like Dominos or an oreo pizza isn't worth the calories. If you're going to have pizza, have an authentic pizza! If you're going to have cookies or pie, go gourmet! That's my philosophy, better make it worth it if you're going to have some.

I love the breakdowns, so I'm not trying to be a jerk, but I just wanted to point out that this nutritional information can not possibly be correct. If you calculate the calories for 2 pieces of cheese pizza based on the protein, carbs, and fat grams listed above, I believe it should come out to 594, not 480. (This is based on the fact that one gram of protein=4 cals, one gram of carbohydrate=4 cals, 1 gram of fat=9 cals). Something doesn't add up right above!

Yum, dessert pizzas. Thankfully where I am in New Zealand, there is only a pizza hut, and we dont go there. Am trying to reduce dominos intake, they did a good effort of keeping me away by introducing the meat pie pizza. mmmm maybe if they put NZ lollies on a pizza I'd be tempted. They've already deep fried moros (similar to mars bars), so that might be good on a pizza! Only for a treat though :)

God I'm so glad I turned down that slice of Dominoe's pizza last week. My friend made me try a bite and I thought this tastes horrible. I'm picky about pizza I like the more authentic italian pizzas or mediteranean so gouremet pizza I guess. Oh and that Oreo pizza looks gross maybe it wouldn't be so bad if the crust was like chocolate cookie dough istead of pizza dough either way I'd rather eat a cookie.

i'm glad I watched that - I was curious to see how it tasted. But I HATE marshmellow fluff so I don't want to now. If the guy had said it tasted like a huge oreo I would have tried it eventually!

I would starve before I would ever eat Dominos and the commercial for that Oreo pizza further ensures that I wouldn't even eat dessert from there. Ewwww.

I remember getting one from free when I ordered a large pizza a few months ago. Let me tell you the smell alone is enough to make you want to throw up. No one in my house wanted to touch that crap.

I doubt I'd ever eat the Oreo pizza, but at Disney World, there's one restaurant in the Animal Kingdom lodge that makes fried oreos as a dessert. OMG. I'd kill for that dessert! Luckily I only go there once a year, so 364 days a year to work off those calories!!

I never tried the oreo pizza, but everytime I want pizza I get whole wheat crust, low-fat cheese and grilled chicken and my boyfriend can't comprehend the difference and HOW BAD these chains are for you. I swear we watched Supersize Me and he was eating McDonalds like 3 days later...
