The healthiest way to eat pizza is homemade where you can control what goes on your pizza but sometimes you just need delivery pizza. Here are the best healthy pizza delivery options from your favorite pizza chains.
I love pizza. I will never give up pizza…ever. The myth that pizza is unhealthy is exactly that – a myth. You may have to eat less of it or find a new option (so you can eat more of it) but I firmly believe (and preach and teach) to stop depriving yourself.
No one wants to eat a sad bowl of romaine while their family enjoys pizza.
Healthy Pizza Delivery Options
Whether you’re having pizza delivered to your hotel or door, or you’re heading out with friends and family. It’s always good to be prepared.
I’m going to share the healthiest pizza menu options at chain restaurants and do the work for you. Don’t forget to order a side salad (if available) for some extra veggies and more roughage to fill you up!
Here’s how it’s going to work:
For every pizza chain, I will list three healthy options (in no order). I will list what the option is, along with nutritional information per slice.
Don’t see the pizza chain you order from? Leave me a comment and ask me to include it!
What makes pizza healthy?
All pizzas will be a medium pizza unless stated.
I am basing the healthier options based on energy (calories) which I’ll list (and macronutrients). I’m searching for the lower calorie options so you can still have a side of salad, veggies, or (if low enough, another slice of pizza).
I am not basing healthy on macronutrient percentage counts (including grams saturated fat or trans fat or sugar). Nor am I basing it off of ingredients used. This is just for a quick guide to not overdo it. All pizzas will be a regular crust.
Even “unhealthy” pizza can be healthy if it’s a once in a while thing. It because unhealthy if you eat the whole pizza or if you punish yourself for the odd treat.
Don’t forget, if you’re looking to establish healthy habits (like adding more vegetables to your diet in fun and tasty ways) be sure to secure a spot in the 30 Days to a Healthy Habits Challenge.
Note: I’m Canadian and usually for chain restaurants the US/Canadian options can vary. I will be basing this off the Canadian menu and add US options if there is a difference.

Healthy Panago Pizza Menu
Panago is one of my favorite pizza restaurants. They have options for both gluten-free and dairy-free pizzas (which isn’t that common).
Gluten-free and thin-crust pizzas are lower in calories than hand-tossed, but I wanted to include an option for everything. I have also included the full nutrition chart for you to see the whole menu.

200 calories, 5g fat, 29g carbohydrate, 11g protein

Here is a link to the 2019 Nutrition and Allergy charts for Panago.
Healthy Papa Johns Pizzas
At Papa John’s, thin-crust only comes in large. Since every slice in this blog post is based on medium pizzas, I left out the thin-crust options.
- Hawaiian Chicken (Lighter Choice) Original Crust
190 calories, 4.5g fat, 27g carbohydrate, 9g protein
- Meditteranean Veggie (Lighter Choice) Original Crust
190 calories, 4.5g fat, 27g carbohydrate, 6g protein
- Chicken and Veggie (Lighter Choice) Original Crust
200 calories, 5g fat, 27g carbohydrate, 7g protein
Here is a link to the Papa’s Nutritional Calculator. It’s based on the US site but Canadian’s can use it too.
California Pizza Kitchen Healthy Options
I LOVE me some CPK. Whenever we head down to Disneyland I like to dine at the one at the Garden Walk or even at the airport location over at John Wayne.
Again, I’m basing this off the wheat options but I highly suggest their cauliflower crust option. It’s fewer calories and what I always get (my order is the Thai Chicken Pizza with cauliflower crust, no bean sprouts ;)).
- California Veggie
180 calories, 5g fat, 25g carbohydrate, 8g protein
- Roasted Artichoke and Spinach (Thin Crust)
190 calories, 7g fat, 24g carbohydrate, 8g protein
- The Original BBQ Chicken Pizza
180 calories, 5g fat, 25g carbohydrate, 11g protein
Papa Murphy’s Healthy Options
There wasn’t many options that I would personally order here on the regular crust, so I changed things up and had a large deLITE option added as well.
- Cheese Original Crust
198 calories, 3.9g fat, 24.1g carbohydrate, 9.5g protein
- Gourmet Chicken Garlic deLITE Large
150 calories, 7g fat, 12.5g carbohydrate, 9.8g protein

194 calories, 6g fat, 25g carbohydrate, 10.5g protein
Marco’s Pizza Healthy Pizza Options
I noticed that with Marco’s that one slice is 1/6th of the pizza and with the calorie count being higher, I assume you get more? I haven’t ate here before so if you have, please leave me a comment and fill me in.

220 calories, 9g fat, 26g carbohydrate, 10g protein
