A nationwide chain, Round Table Pizza establishments serve one of the most popular foods in the world: pizza (obviously). A to-go, delivery, and sit-down restaurant, Round Table Pizza offers menu items for consumers who follow a number of specialty diets, including gluten free, low carb, and low fat.

Consumers can also choose veggie and lean-protein sandwiches and hearty appetizers, as Round Table Pizza offers a comprehensive food menu and small personal pizzas are available for under $10. To stick to a healthy diet, however, you should only visit Round Table Pizza on special occasions and stay cognizant of their menu’s nutritional information when you do.

What Experts Say

“Round Table Pizza’s menu items tend to be high in calories and fat, but there are healthier options. For fewer calories and carbs than other pizzas, try building your own with thin crust and top it with lots of vegetables for filling fiber. Use red sauce (instead of cream-based) and avoid processed meats and extra cheese to avoid higher fat. If you eat here often, look to the salad bar to load up with non-starchy vegetables for added fiber.”

Navigating the Menu

The majority of the pizza and appetizer menu items contain a high amount of calories, sodium, and gluten. However, Round Table Pizza offers gluten-free and "skinny" crust with veggie toppings for those following a specialty diet.

Although most consumers visit Round Table Pizza for their namesake item, pizza, other popular offerings include traditional salads with all the trimmings, garlic parmesan twists, and classic wings in both oven-roasted and fried options for appetizers or as a main meal.

Most Nutritious Option

If you’re looking for the healthiest pizza slice at Round Table Pizza, the Guinevere’s Garden Delight nutrition profile makes this the best choice.

Pizza

Round Table Pizza offers two main crust types that any traditional pizza parlor would have on the menu: original and pan. It also has a skinny crust option, a stuffed crust, a gluten-free crust, or a specialty crust.

You can choose your own toppings or order a specific type, such as Hawaiian, smokehouse combo with chicken or pepperoni, and gourmet veggie. Pizzas are available in personal, small, medium, large, and extra large sizes.

✓ Guinevere’s Garden Delight Pizza on Skinny Crust

One serving of the personal Guinevere's garden delight pizza on skinny crust contains 120 calories, 5g fat, 3g saturated fat, 13g carbohydrates, 6g protein, and 280mg sodium. Another vegetarian option is the gourmet veggie and has only 10 extra calories per serving.

✗ Pepperoni Maui Zaui on Stuffed Crust

One serving of the pepperoni Maui Zaui on stuffed crust pizza contains 310 calories, 14g fat, 7g saturated fat, 32g carbohydrates, 15g protein, and 800mg sodium. In general, you'll save calories, sodium, and carbohydrates by ordering a pizza on a skinny crust or even on an original crust. The stuffed crust packs in more calories per serving than any other option on the menu.

Of course, customizing your own pizza could be a helpful way to boost the nutritional value of your entire order. Fox maximum nutrition, order the skinny or original crust. Then, top it with the zesty red sauce — it's the most nutritious sauce option on the menu with 0 calories, 0g fat, 0g saturated fat, 1g carbohydrates, 0g protein, and 10mg sodium. Then, add shredded parmesan for an additional 10 calories, 0.5g fat, 0.5g saturated fat, 0g carbohydrates, 1g protein, and 30mg sodium.

Loading up with veggies is always a good bet, but if you're feeling added protein on your pizza, choose the ham option, which will add 10 calories, 0g fat, 0g saturated fat, 0g carbohydrates, 1g protein, and 80mg sodium per serving.

In general, you'll want to stay away from the pesto sauce, the three cheese blend, and the pepperoni — these are the least nutritious sauce, cheese, and meat choices on the Round Table Pizza menu.

Appetizers

All appetizers on the Round Table Pizza menu contain starch and carbs; you won’t find any vitamin-rich offerings. These include items such as garlic parmesan twists and a variety of wings.

✓ Garlic Parmesan Twists

When the healthiest option is the garlic parmesan twists, you might want to skip the appetizers altogether. One serving of the twists is only half a stick and contains 80 calories, 2.5g fat, 1g saturated fat, 12g carbohydrates, 3g protein, and 230mg sodium.

✗ Mild Buffalo Fried Boneless Wings 

The fried boneless wings topped with mild buffalo have 150 calories, 11g fat, 1.5g saturated fat, 5g carbohydrates, 6g protein, and 410mg sodium per wing. The smallest order of the wings has 6 pieces, so watching portions may be difficult.

If you're craving wings but are looking for a healthier option, order the oven-roasted boneless wings. In general, they'll be lower in calories and fat compared to the fried variety.

Salads

Instead of pizza or wings, you can order a veggie or protein-rich salad. Packed with greens and additional protein — you can top any salad with grilled chicken — these options can make for a low-carb meal.

✓ Spinach Salad

The individual spinach salad contains 80 calories, 4g fat, 1.5g saturated fat, 7g carbohydrates, 5g protein, and 150mg sodium. As a low-calorie option, this salad makes for a nice side to a slice of pizza or a standalone meal. Top your salad with the balsamic vinaigrette to optimize the nutritional value of your salad.

✗ Caesar Salad

The Caesar salad delivers 350 calories, 30g fat, 6g saturated fat, 15g carbohydrates, 8g protein, and 720mg sodium. Higher in calories and sodium than the garden salad, the Caesar salad is also less nutritious than the third salad option on the menu — the garden salad.

If you'd like to pack in more vegetables, the garden salad with croutons is another option. For an individual portion, you'll also receive 100 calories, 3.5g fat, 0.5g saturated fat, 16g carbohydrates, 4g protein, and 150mg sodium.

Dessert

While Round Table Pizza has an extensive menu for its signature offering — pizza — it only has a single item on its dessert menu.

The cinnamon twists are the only sweet dish on the menu and have 180 calories, 3.5g fat, 1g saturated fat, 34g carbohydrates, 4g protein, and 290mg sodium. In general, you'll want to avoid or split this dish. With a high amount of calories and carbohydrates per serving, it adds very little nutritional value to your meal.

Beverages

Round Table Pizza offers a variety of fountain drinks from the Pepsi family of brands at its restaurants. From iced tea to soda, the offerings range from low-calorie drinks to high-calorie sugar bombs.

✓ Brisk Unsweetened No Lemon Iced Tea

While water is the most nutritious and hydrating beverage whether you're dining at Round Table Pizza or at home, if you're craving a beverage with more flavor, Round Table Pizza does offer Brisk unsweetened no lemon iced tea for 0 calories, 0g fat, 0g carbohydrates, 0g protein, and 45mg sodium per a 12-ounce serving.

✗ Mountain Dew

A 12-ounce drink of the Mountain Dew, on the other hand, delivers 165 calories, 0g fat, 46g carbohydrates, 0g protein, and 60mg sodium. You'll want to avoid this sugary soda drink — it also brings 46g sugar per serving — and reach for water or iced tea instead.

Diet-Specific Options

Despite most items containing carbs and starch, you can stick to a number of specific diets at Round Table Pizza, including gluten-free, low-fat, low-sodium, and vegetarian, but not low-carb, low-FODMAP, diabetes-friendly, or vegan diets.

A popular pizza joint throughout the country, Round Table Pizza doesn’t offer the healthiest of menu options. You should save this restaurant for special occasions or order carefully if you visit more often. You can do this by sticking to the salad bar and loading up with any type of lettuce as a base and adding vegetable toppings, as most have zero calories and are loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Gluten-free

  • Gluten-free Pizza Crust
  • Spinach Salad

Round Table Pizza makes all of its pizzas available on its gluten-free crust. Whether you prefer pepperoni or BBQ chicken pizza, you can eat gluten free at this restaurant by choosing the gluten-free crust. For the most nutritious option, order the Guinevere’s garden delight pizza on the gluten-free crust.

Low-Fat Diet

  • Guinevere’s Garden Delight Pizza
  • Hawaiian Pizza
  • Red Zesty Sauce
  • Spinach Salad

Although most pizza slices come loaded with cheese and fat-laden protein, you can find heart-healthy and low-fat items on the menu. For a veggie-packed meal, order the spinach salad. If craving a pizza, the Hawaiian or Guinevere's garden delight are each great orders.

Low-Sodium Diet

  • Cheese Pizza
  • Zesty Red Sauce
  • Vegetable Pizza Toppings

Sticking to your low-sodium diet at a popular pizza joint can feel challenging, but most of the sauces and salad bar offerings are low in sodium and even good for you.

The most nutritious low-sodium food item at Round Table Pizza is the cheese pizza on skinny crust. A single serving will deliver 290mg sodium.

Vegetarian Diet

  • Guinevere’s Garden Delight Pizza
  • Gourmet Veggie Pizza
  • Garlic Bread
  • Garlic Parmesan Twists
  • Cinnamon Twists

With the ability to choose your own toppings and two veggie pizzas on the menu, you can easily stick to a vegetarian diet. Vegans should stick to the salad bar as pizza crusts could contain dairy.

The most nutrient-dense vegetarian option is the gourmet veggie pizza, which includes zucchini, mushrooms, spinach, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, and onions.

Food Allergies and Safety

For anyone with common food allergies, such as dairy, tree nuts, soy, and dairy, Round Table Pizza has items that will fit your allergen-specific needs. However, you could encounter cross contamination in the kitchen and should stay mindful of what you order.

To ensure your safety, you can perform the following:

  • Review Round Table Pizza’s nutritional information via their downloadable pdf on the establishment’s website.
  • Ask for modifications. For example, order a Gluten-Free Gourmet Veggie Pizza with Zesty Red Sauce and skip the cheese to avoid as much dairy, gluten, and nuts as possible.
  • Ask the staff any questions you may have about food safety.

The Round Table Pizza's website also offers downloadable allergen information on eight major food allergens: peanut, tree nut, egg, milk, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.

A Word From Verywell

Round Table Pizza’s menu contains more than pizza, with items such as sandwiches, appetizers, specialty breads, and a salad bar. The majority of the items don’t contain a high number of calories or fat, but they do have a heavy amount of sodium.

For anyone preferring to avoid the standard saucy, cheesy pizza, Round Table Pizza has a number of alternatives, such as a Gluten-Free and Skinny Crust and an ability to choose your pizza own toppings to meet your nutrient needs.

If dining in, you can order from the salad bar to maintain complete control of your food. Loading up on any type of lettuce and vegetables will keep the meal low calorie and fat free.
