the search for nutritional information

I am scouring the internet looking for the nutrition information for a personal size pizza from Domino's (lemme finish before you make fun of me for eating fast food pizza.)

Today I had to close out one of my absolute favorite clients. In the few short months I worked with her, she went from being an agoraphobic and anti-social young woman, with a drug abuse and criminal history to the assistant manager at Domino's, going to enroll at the local community college to get her GED and college credits and trying to get her driver's license. I couldn't be more proud of her if I had made her myself. As a token of her appreciation, she made me a special mini pizza with veggies on it (I paid for it of course). Then I ate it. Then she started tearing up and said "Go Miss Jillian, I am getting upset and I still have to work 3 more hours." So we hugged and I booked out of there. It made me feel wonderful that I got to make a difference in her life and to be a positive and consistent adult in her life. I was able to watch her make progress on goals she set for herself. Needless to say, I was sad to leave her too.

But now I'm super sad because I don't know what to eat for dinner, because I do not know how many POINTS the stinkin' pizza was. And there is NO information on it.

Forget it. I found it.
