The question is not “are you eating pizza on Super Bowl Sunday” but rather, "are you ordering it online or with an app.” (News Flash:  Soon you will be able to order your pizza while driving to your friend’s house to watch any game on their big screen TV.   Recently, Dominos and Ford have joined forces and developed a synchronized app that allow drivers to easily order their Domino’s order for pickup or delivery using voice commands.)

The tricky thing about pizza (no matter how you order it) is how to enjoy it without putting on extra pounds by the end of the game.  A pizza pie with meaty and cheesy toppings can deliver over 3,000 calories to your half time celebration.  Altering the thickness of the crust and ordering your pizza top heavy with only veggies will help you score a satisfying pie for dramatically less calories.

Here are some comparisons from area pizzeria chains:

Tip:  Make a BIG tossed salad with light dressing and munch on it during the first half of the game.  By the time the pizza arrives at half-time, you will be so full that you will end up eating less no matter which type of pizza you order.

Be well, Joan
