Go Vegan at Dominos

July 6, 2008 by Victoria

As a vegetarian, pizza was one of  our favorite take-outs, in fact I’d say that pizza was easily Nick’s favorite food before we started trying to be vegan. We’d go a week vegan, have a pizza, then start over again, another couple of weeks, another pizza, until we finally went out to Pizza Hut to have our “final pizza”. Since then, we’ve been making our own at home, experimenting with making cheese sauces out of Nutritional Yeast and Soy Cheese. Nothing bet that damn tasty Dominos base. A little bit of googling revealed the dough ingredients:

  •   – Wheatflour, water, salt, sugar, vegetable oil, yeast, ascorbic acid, cornmeal

I had been toying with the idea of ringing and asking for a pizza without the cheese, wondering is it even possible, would they laugh, will I need to give a huge explanation, maybe even lie and say that I was lactose intolerant? Mostly, I was put off ringing out of the fear of getting laughed at. About a month ago I bit the bullet one night when the presses were sparce and I was too hungry to be creative. The phone call was a complete success, no laughter, on questions, no problem! And the pizza, well.. great! Something felt missing, as was natural, but they seemed to compensate for the lack of cheese with double of all the veggies that we ordered!Yum. And the sweet bar-b que sauce meant it was super flavorsome. And yes, the bar-b que sauce is also vegan. Barbecue Sauce  Ingredients:

  •  - High fructose corn syrup, tomato paste, distilled vinegar,  molasses, brown sugar, salt, modified food starch, spices, mustard bran, natural flavour, onion and garlic powder, colour, lemon juice, preservative (E211)–M

    YES! You can… my brother used to order without cheese all the time. One of my kids orders no sauce. They should be fairly used to it! :)

    Hello!

    I’ve been vegan for about 6 months. I recently started ordering pizza with tons of veggies, extra sauce and no cheese of course. I’ve had no problems expect my fiancé thinks it’s a waste if a pizza doesn’t have sausage and pepperoni

    @Debz It’s great to hear that there are other people out there doing it! :)

    @Annette That’s great, you know you could order a half and half pizza with some meat on his side, but you may have to pick some pepperoni off your side as they tend to toss it on real quick.

    Thank You so much!!! What a wonderful idea! I really love domino’s pizza, but lately I’ve been nervous about the sauce ingredients(i’m vegetarian right now)… and now I have a new idea for when i make the switch to vegan! Trusting other people to make my food is hard for me, especially with fast food services, like domino’s, but I’ve been happy with all the customer services there so far, so thanks! :)

    The problem there though is that it contains fructose syrup!!! Avoid this like the plague, seriously, google it and you’ll find out why…

  7. I am also a vegetarian and my body has never been in a very good shape. Being a vegan can really make you much heathier.:*.

  8. Here is another great option for vegetarians looking for a great pizza, AC LaRocco Pizza, it’s the healthiest pizza on the planet … if you don’t believe me check out their website http://www.aclarocoo.com. AC LaRocco Pizzas are made with all natural ingredients, organic crust and use organic tomato paste in their sauce. They have 8 varieties of pizza and are high in fiber and protein and low in calories and fat. I have heard that they are working on a vegan pizza too. You can find AC LaRocco Pizzas in your grocers natural frozen foods section. Trust me you won’t be disappointed!

    The only problem is that Domino’s crust has milk in it unless you go with thin crust. The information is on the Domino’s website’s allergy information page.
