Pizza is SO good, but it’s so easy to overdo it & take in WAY too many calories. Here’s a skinny Domino’s order for the pizza-lovers out there who still want to fit in their clothes the next day. Have your pizza & eat it, too! Click through now to The Summer Lover to learn more!{ pin it! 📌 }

How’s everyone’s weekend going so far? Hope it’s been beach-y & bright!

I spent my Friday night w/ a granny moment, curled up in bed w/ some soft blankets & a good book ( currently reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert – SO good ) & then spent my Saturday finishing all of my assignments due next week so that I’d have time to work on the blog & get some TLC during the week.

Gotta make time for you babes ( & myself ), y’know?

But anyway after powering through some business calc homework I developed a SERIOUS pizza craving.

& the thing about cravings is that once it’s there, it’s THERE & needs to be crushed … or else the next time you’re face-to-face w/ a pie of lovely pizza, you’ll stuff that whole thing down your throat. 

Nope, NOT pretty. 

If you don’t know this about me : I have a deep, deep love for pizza. & it hasn’t been a healthy relationship since pizza isn’t the greatest thing to eat – it’s easy to overdo it & it’s full of carbs, sodium, & hidden calories ( aka if you throw on too many toppings ).

SO I wanted to find a way to modify my order to the point where I’m consuming less calories & fewer bad ingredients.

I ordered a medium thin-crusted pizza w/ light cheese, mushroom, baby spinach, & the robust inspired tomato sauce from Domino’s.

Yes, it’s a veggie pizza but I wanted to avoid cured meats like bacon & pepperoni, etc. since they’re high in fat & sodium.

… & I knew I’d loveeee the pizza even if it were meatless – the mushroom + spinach combo was delish.

🌡 HOT TIP : If you really, really want meat, get the chicken.

I opted for a thin-crusted pizza since it’s less dough ( & thus less calories ) & comes w/ a satisfying crunch. & to keep things classic, tomato sauce was the best choice as it’s not overly seasoned & is the closest thing to a whole food – tomatoes are pretty awesome.

( note : even though this order was modified to be more healthful, make sure you’re not overeating – 2 slices is plenty )

I also got some wings – because who doesn’t love hot, HOT wings?

I always order plain wings w/ buffalo sauce on the side as a dip, ’cause they 100% overdo it & literally bathe it in sauce.

& of course I sprinkled chili flakes on everything. YOU KNOW ME.


Let’s chat : what are your fave pizza toppings? Don’t be afraid to GET WEIRD – I totally love it! 

Okay, back to watching Gilmore Girls – I’m almost done w/ season 6 & I’m excited to ( finally ) be able to finish a show! ( & now I have enough leftovers to last me a lifetime 😂 ) xx

    There was this one night when we flew into NYC super late and everything was closed…. except Dominos. We ordered pizza and let me tell you it was so delicious after a long day of traveling! I ordered jalapeños on it for some extra spice 🙂

      Jalapeños are SO good! I would’ve topped my pizza w/ some if I hadn’t already planned to cover it w/ chili flakes already, ha! xx
