At Domino's Pizza, they were kind enough to list ingredients: http://www.dominos.com/home/menu/ingredients.jsp

Which crust would be the least terrible pick?

(My guess would be for the "thin crust" option because there would probably be only half as much by weight.)

Thanks for voting,
Mike

MikeS,

Of course the worst by far is the deep dish crust, which has a laundry list of troublesome ingredients. The Brooklyn and hand tossed are identical. Between them and the thin crust it depends upon your sensitivities. If you react to phosphates the thin crust may be more of a problem than the Brooklyn/hand tossed.

This might sound cheesy, but:

What's worse: the dough or the cheese or the sauce:

Mozzarella Cheese (Pasteurized Milk, Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Modified Food Starch, Cellulose (Added to Prevent Caking), Non-Fat Milk, Whey Protein Concentrate, Sodium Citrate, Flavors, Sodium Propionate (Added as a Preservative).

Sauce:
Water, Tomato Paste, Tomato Extract Blend, Salt, Sugar, Spices and Herbs, Garlic Powder, and Citric Acid.

Thank you for finding the ingredients. We had one instance where our son didn't react to Domino's and then another time when he had a strong reaction.

C-cysteine is excitotoxic, I'm afraid to say (see Blaylock's book). So is "enzyme" when it is listed as a dough conditioner, sometimes. Spices could be fine or could be a problem....Whey protein concentrate is almost undoubtedly high in glutamates.

Go for the Home Run Inn pizza and bake it yourself. It really is quite good and much safer. You can find it in grocery stores such as King Soopers.

I feel for you, since I have a son whose favorite food is pizza. It's tough!! But don't kid yourself - these are just not safe.

Recently he had Nick-N-Willy's with cheese and pineapple and did OK, but that's just one data point.
