All too often, pizza is written off as fast…or even worse…junk food. But when you stop and think about it, what other single dish out there can serve as a balanced meal all by itself? Soup and burritos perhaps but a pizza expertly made with the freshest ingredients can be the most satisfying. To start, you need fresh mozzarella, non-frozen vegetables, a generous amount of top quality tomato sauce, and a crust that’s flavorful and sturdy enough to support all the toppings.
Domino’s may not be the first place you think of turning when you need a top quality pizza fix. But if you’re still skeptical and haven’t tried them in awhile, Domino’s has come along way from the days of bland taste and the reputed use of artificial cheeses. It’s been 2 years now since Domino’s has totally recreated their pizzas from the crust up. After visiting their headquarters and production facility a while back, I was impressed by how such a large scale pizza making operation devotes so much attention to sourcing each ingredient ensuring freshness and quickly crafts them into great tasting pies at reasonable prices.
Domino’s is currently offering large specialty pizzas like Pacific Veggie, Philly Cheesesteak, and Honolulu Hawaiian for $12. My favorite is their Pacific Veggie with loads of roasted red peppers, spinach, mushrooms, tomatos, black olives with feta and provolone cheeses on a Parmesan dusted crust.
Better yet, their $5 carry out lunch deal available until 2 p.m. each day gives you a 2 topping small pizza along with your choice of Penne Pasta in a dish or an Oven Baked Sandwich. I’m giving away a $10 gift card (good enough for 2 of these lunches) to the best comment I get describing which 2 toppings you would order on your small pizza and why it’s the best combination.
