That’s right, it is time to find out how much sugar is exactly in your favorite pizza pie. I will also go through some Frequently Asked Questions when it comes to sugar and Domino’s – so you know exactly what to expect if you decide to build-your-own pizza. First and foremost, is there even a lot of sugar in Domino’s Pizza? Let’s find out.
Is There a Lot of Sugar in Domino’s Pizza?
Dominos’ Pizza can be low in sugar. When building your own pizza, the highest sugar toppings are pineapple and BBQ chicken, and the highest sugar sauce is Honey BBQ. The remaining sauces and toppings are low in sugar. The lowest sugar pizza is the Spinach and Feta. The highest sugar pizzas are the Memphis BBQ Chicken, and Honolulu Hawaiian.
Avoiding anything with “BBQ” in the name along with pineapple is the best way of reducing the total sugar content of your Domino’s pizza.

As a general rule, the Honey BBQ sauce at Domino’s is the highest sugar sauce. Having Honey BBQ sauce on an extra-large Domino’s pizza adds 9g of total sugar per serving (and 54g of sugar to the entire pizza).

The sugar content of all Domino’s Pizzas Ranked. What have we learned from the above? Well, first, I was surprised at the sugar content of pizzas servings. I was expecting them to be a lot higher than they were. Secondly, anything BBQ-based, or pineapple based is going to be the highest sugar option. If you want to keep the sugar content down, then you are best going for a spinach and feta pizza. Or switch up the BBQ chicken for Buffalo Chicken which comes in only at 2g-3g of sugar compared to 7g-9g for the BBQ chicken.
