Domino's Pizza finally makes edible food

I have to give props when props are due, so kudos to Domino's Pizza!

For the last two weeks, I've seen the TV commercials claiming that Domino's finally realized their pizza was sub-par (a much too kind word for really bad!). The spots boast more flavorful sauce, a garlicy crust, and better cheeses. However, I'm sure many shared my thoughts: "Yeah, right!".

Well, last night I found myself at a networking mixer and, thanks to a day gone wild, I hadn't had a chance to eat lunch or dinner. To my delight, the room had a nice spread with food and drinks, so I scampered on over. There were cookies, deli sandwiches, chips...and Domino's pizza. I would have gone for the sandwich, but it was ham (and I'm a vegetarian). I hesitantly looked at the Domino's box and opened it up. Mushroom! Score! But, it was Domino's pizza so my excitement diminished. Truth be told, I don't think I've had their pizza in at least five years; vowing never to waste my money again on something so horrible.

Remembering the TV spots promising a better pizza, I opened the box back up and grabbed a slice. "Heck, I'll give it a try. Let's see if you can really taste a change." And, to my amazement, it was actually good! Let me repeat, my slice of Domino's pizza was downright tasty!

Yes, I know you're probably skeptical, but I highly encourage you to give it a shot. It has undoubtedly taken much too long for Domino's to make a desperately needed change to their recipe, but better late than never. Believe it or not, I'm actually gonna add the local Domino's to my speed dial now. Good pizza for $5.99? Now, that's what makes America great!

UPDATE May 4, 1010: Here's an interesting story from USA Today that says Domino's sales have gone up 14.3% since the new recipe was introduced.


  1. Interesting! In Chicago we have soooo many good pizza places. I don't know if I can give Domino's another try. Of course now you have me curious!

    Tasty post :)

    Perhaps I should provide the disclaimer that any Chicago pizza is likely to crush any "ordinary" pizza! But, for a chain recipe, the new Domino's pizza is pretty good.

    I imagine your selection of tasty eats in Chi-town is excellent, so perhaps give the Domino's a try next time you're in the airport and need a snack!

    Thanks so much for your scrumptious comment!

  3. I've had the new pizza a couple times and have to say, I really like it. I love the new crust they are using.

  4. Sabrina:

    Hard to believe we're saying nice things about Domino's, huh? I agree, that crust was darn yummy! Thanks so much for chiming in on the discussion. I appreciate your comment!

  5. The New pizza formula was a winning success for Domino's Pizza. It's just too bad that my store was closed after I reported theft taking place.. Check it out-
