Well, I should hope that they do, considering that they're running a pizza place and I am not.
 
2012-04-03 01:20:08 PM  
And I know grammar better then subby.
 
2012-04-03 01:20:47 PM  
Do they know the difference between "then" and "than", subby?

I like Domino's. They put sugar in their sauce.

They probably do. But I know more about what I like than they do, so suck it.
 
2012-04-03 01:36:30 PM  
There's nothing served at Domino's that remotely resembles an actual pizza.

/Now excuse me, I have to be at John's in 26 minutes.

I only go to places that put high fructose corn syrup in their sauce. Than again, I'm a pizza snob.

I have the feeling that they can't change the artisan pizzas is it's pe-packaged. By going all snooty, they hope to avoid confrontation.

The problem is people like me who are allergic to mushrooms and sea food. If you can't bend a little, I won't be able to buy your food.

Dear Domino's Pizza,

You can't polish a turd.

I like a lot of pizzas, whether fancypants or plain old Dominos, but I tried their "artisan" sausage and peppers pizza and it was terrible. Their normal pizza is better.

The King commercials are awesome.

The "No" ad features the company's new Chicken & Bacon Carbonara pizza, the latest in a line of artisan pies introduced last year. Customers can still customize any other pies.

I know it is Domino's, but that sounds farking delicious.

they are, but i wonder if they are considered a "flop" because their impact on sales did not justify the resources put into the ads.

I'm a total snob, but I live in a major east coast city with lots of real authentic mom and pop Italian and Greek places whose pizza is way better than Domino's. So I'm a total snob.

Maybe it's because I've lived in NYC or its suburbs my entire life and generally avoid the pizza chains -- but is Domino's what passes for "decent" pizza in the rest of the country? If so that explains a lot,especially the frozen pizza commercials I see now and then. I had some Domino's not long after they changed their recipes and I swear I've had better from the supermarket freezer.

No, not by any stretch of the imagination.
 
2012-04-03 02:18:05 PM  
Pizza is impossible to screw up unless you put broccoli on it, in which case it's your own fault. If you're ordering Pizza Hut or Dominoes, or indeed any take away pizza, expecting fine cuisine then you're a goddamned foolass.
 
2012-04-03 02:20:10 PM  

damageddude: but is Domino's what passes for "decent" pizza in the rest of the country?


Not all.

There are local mom and pop pizza places, some regional chains, some national chains (Papa Johns, Pizza Hut) that are better than Domino's.

But it's definitely bottom of the barrel stuff. I'd rather have a couple of those $1.50 frozen Totino's pizzas than Domino's.

/tried it once after the relaunch... meh....
 
2012-04-03 02:20:38 PM  
We used to get Domino's once a month, but when they switched to that salty seasoned crust we stopped ordering from there. Even when you ask for a regular unseasoned crust they don't listen. Thankfully, we have gotten 3 much better mom and pop pizza places in town, and they all have New York style pizza.

Actually, I can say I've only found three pizza places that were good dice I've moved west of the Mississippi. The chains are held as standard because they were the first in many areas.

OregonVet: I'm irritated with the use of "artisan".


Indeed. Unless there's some guy in the back milling his own flour, cultivating his own yeast, and fermenting his own curd, I don't think this strictly qualifies as "artisan."

/Not that "artisan" holds much meaning any more.
//And "fermenting his own curd" is not a euphemism.
 
2012-04-03 02:28:58 PM  
Even in my old hard-partying, drink- and drug-fueled, irresponsible days, I couldn't bring myself to eat Domino's. And we're talking serious munchies.

Nope. Still won't eat it. I don't care what they've done with the recipes. The sight of the Domino's box causes me to get urpy. It's vomit-aversion treatment.

This is how I feel about Olive Garden. I'm hardly a snob when it comes to food, but I just can't bring myself to like it. I once got a gift card to Olive Garden as a present. Even eating a free meal there felt like a ripoff.

Does this mean that I can no longer request that they don't drench my pizza in that nasty, smelly ass garlic butter?

I didn't care for Domino's before the relaunch, but at least it didn't make me sick after eating it as it does now. I don't know what they've changed, but whatever it was, my digestive tract hates it.

yeah. did not read the article, dominos sucks.

It's like asking for no greek olives and then asking for extra prosciutto for no charge. I can see how it's annoying, but their model will fail.

So that why I saw a Domino's employee throwing out a bunch of Totino's Pizza boxes the other day.

My hatred for Pizza chains is focused on Pizza Hut anyway. Motherfarkers. I'll order Dominoes just to spite them. Fark you PIzza Hut.

/Domino's sandwiches are really good though.
 
2012-04-03 04:49:02 PM  
Is the stuff it says in the article all Domino's even claims to have done to fix their pizza? If so, I'm glad I never wasted my mone trying it again.
 
2012-04-03 04:49:26 PM  
Domino's main redeeming value is they bring the pizza like substance to you. That's about it. Otherwise even the stuff sold at grocery delis is better.

FYI, you can pick up pizza yeast in the baking aisle. Takes ten minutes max to make the dough with the fast rising pizza yeast. It requires you to have flour, sugar, salt, and oil at home to use. Grab one can of crushed tomatos and one can of tomato paste (they cost like 50 cents each if you buy store brand). Grab a pepperoni stick. Everything listed above will last forever.

After that you need some cheese. The best pizza cheese is a mixture of provolone and mozzarella, but just mozzarella works well. As a side note, the balls of mozzarella cheese (you want the lower moisture stuff, not the really gummy feeling stuff you serve with figure food) will last a lot longer than the pre shredded stuff. This is the only ingredient that will expire in any kind of time frame.

Mix the paste and crushed tomatos together to the desired thickness of sauce (add water if needed). Flavor the sauce with some combination of: sugar, salt, black pepper, red pepper, oregano, basil (I tend to just go red pepper, a little salt, and a little black pepper).

Make dough, apply pizza sauce, apply cheese, apply toppings. You can have things like pepperoni or anchovies sitting around forever. For veggies, just see what it is in the veggie drawer. Green peppers, mushrooms, even diced tomatos are good. Cook for ~13 minutes and enjoy.

I keep all the fixings for a basic pizza (yeast, can of tomato paste, can of crushed tomatos, pepperoni stick, ball of mozzarella) at home as my emergency meal plan. When dad comes home and finds he has to cook, you get pizza. Just raid the veggie draw to supplement it. For when I'm planning ahead I'll pick up a mixture of cheeses and do the real dough (that sits overnight). After you make a pizza or two you can normally crank them out within 25 minutes, with half of that being cook time. It's really basic and easy to do.

/worked for a Sicilian guy who ran a pizza place in high school
//dude was intense, but taught me how to make a make a good pizza
/plus you can experiment with strombolis, calzones, etc using the same dough

You eat pizza with a fork? Do you wear a helmet all the time?
 
2012-04-03 04:59:11 PM  
Domino's is only good if it's free, because there's no such thing as bad free pizza.

I don't think I've ever ordered from them, though. It's Panago if I want delivery, Super Great (the one across from Joyce Station for you Vancouverites) for cheap and quick, and a place called Nicli's, in Gastown, for authentic.
 
2012-04-03 05:06:34 PM  
I have not tried their new pizzas and this does not make me want to.

presumably if he needed a helmet, he wouldn't be permitted to use a fork.
