Domino's Oven Baked Sandwiches: Chicken Bacon Ranch and Philly Cheese Steak with artisan bread. Carrie Snyder / The Forum

Domino's Pizza used to say it all.

Now the chain has added subs - it calls them Oven Baked Sandwiches. They're about 8 inches long, sliced in the middle and come in five varieties.

They're good. Answering a craving with the Philly Cheese Steak (steak, American and provolone cheese, green pepper, onion and mushrooms) is a great Subway substitute.

You can also order Chicken Bacon Ranch, Chicken Parm, Italian or Veggie.

The artisan bread - baked at 450 degrees - is like a fluffy pizza crust. Delish.

But everything that makes the sandwich good can also make it bad.

It's deliciously greasy, extravagantly salty and horribly yummy. If ignorance is bliss, stop reading.

The Philly Cheese Steak has 690 calories and is on the low end of this sandwich spectrum. (The Veggie sandwich's nutrition facts were unavailable.)

The Chicken Bacon Ranch - the most popular, says F-M store owner Terry Nordenstrom - is 890 calories and has 45 grams of fat, 16 grams of saturated fat, 115 milligrams of cholesterol and 2,210 milligrams of sodium.

But if you can shut that out of your consciousness, the Oven Baked Sandwich's price is reasonable: $4.99 to $5.99, depending on your choice.

The sandwich takes 10 to 15 minutes to make. There is a $1.50 delivery fee.

Counting calories and not discounting flavor, it's maybe best to eat only half the sandwich at once and save the rest for later.
