5 Domino's Types of Crust - What's the difference?
Domino’s Pizza is one of the most popular pizza delivery restaurants in the United States. With a wide variety of toppings, sauces, and crusts, Domino’s allows customers to customize their pizza to their tastes. This article will explore the different Domino’s types of crust available and explain the differences between each crust so that you can make an informed decision and select the best pizza for your needs.
The five Domino’s types of crust available in the United States as of January 2023 are:
Domino's Thin Crust
The Domino’s Thin Crust pizza is, as the name suggests, the thinnest Crust option and ideal for pizza lovers who love their pizza wafer thin. The Thin Crust is sturdy enough to hold up to the weight of most toppings and cheese while remaining crunchy.
It is also generally the healthiest Domino’s pizza option as the crust has fewer calories and less fat. In addition, the Thin Crust pizza is the perfect choice for a lighter pizza, as it offers a light and airy crunch with every bite.
The Thin Crust is available in the Small pizza, Medium pizza and large Domino’s pizzas but not the Extra Large.
A Thin Crust medium size cheese pizza from Domino’s has 150 Calories per slice.
Domino's Hand Tossed Crust
The Domino’s Hand Tossed Crust is the classic style of pizza crust that is thin and crispy with a light and airy texture. It’s thicker than the Thin Crust and thinner than the Handmade Pan Crust pizza. Many people think of this traditional pizza crust when they think of pizza.
The crust is made from wheat flour and yeast and hand-tossed to create the perfect thin and crunchy texture. Domino’s Hand Tossed Crust is available on Small, Medium and Large Dominio’s Pizza but not on the Extra Large pizza.
A Hand Tossed Crust medium size pizza from Domino’s has 200 Calories per slice.
Domino's Handmade Pan Crust
The Domino’s Handmade Pan Crust is the thickest pizza crust on the Domino’s USA menu.
The Handmade Pan Crust is only available in Medium size pizzas (12 inches) but is great for those who want a thicker, chewier crust that still packs plenty of flavor.
Since the crust is quite thick and can easily hold multiple toppings, it is the most filling of all Domino’s Pizza options and the most calorie dense.
The Handmade Pan Crust is a good option if you love your pizza with a thick crust and a crispy bottom.
A Handmade Pan medium size pizza from Domino’s has 290 Calories per slice.
Domino's Brooklyn Style Crust
The Brooklyn Style Crust from Domino’s is available in Large and Extra Large varieties of pizza. The hand-stretched dough thickness sits between the Hand Tossed and Thin Crust, providing customers with that traditional New York Style, large thin, foldable slices.
Domino’s only offer their Extra Large Pizza (16 inches) in Brooklyn Style, making it the obvious choice when feeding a crowd at a party or corporate event to get the best bang for your buck.
Domino's Gluten Free Crust
The Domino’s gluten free crust is a modified pizza crust made with a blend of brown and white rice flour, potato starch, and other gluten free ingredients. It is an excellent option for those who are gluten intolerant or wish to avoid consuming wheat, barley or rye products. However, if you have Celiac disease with severe gluten sensitivity, it is wise to avoid Domino’s pizzas altogether. All pizzas are prepared in the same kitchen, and Domino’s cannot guarantee against cross-contamination of ingredients.
The Domino’s gluten free crust is also vegan, making it an ideal choice for those who follow a vegan lifestyle. The crust is light and crispy, with a light and airy texture. Unfortunately, Domino’s gluten free crust is only available on small (10-inch) pizzas. Expect to pay around $2.50 extra for the gluten free crust.
The five Domino’s types of crust are great for different occasions and differing tastes.
