 Domino’s has been offering deep-dish pizza off-and-on for years.   I remember it as been bread-y and butter-y and a tad garlick-y.   I am not much of a deep-dish person but I do get a craving for it every blue moon.

As thick crusts go- I liked what Domino’s had originally.   I think the problem was they didn’t mention it much and I would forget which location had it and which one didn’t.

Actually I guess we all forgot about it –  so Domino’s decided to pull it and redesign it – much like they did their regular pizza few years ago.

The result is – MEH.   Actually not even a capital MEH.  Just “meh”.

They say the new one is hand pressed into the pans- which I think is part of the problem.  You can see from the picture above – the pizza cooks UNEVENLY.   The GREEN circle is light and puffy – look at those bubbles/holes!  NICE!

The RED circles were gooey-chewy-bits of WAY under-cooked dough.  It was just greasy and disappointing.

Maybe “The Noid” is loose again – causing pizza mischief.   Either way this is my last pan-pizza from Domino’s.

    Your review here supports the cliche’ that opinions are like assholes, everyone is different and virtually all of them stink. Read the box you idiot as it tells you the Pan Pizza is perfectly imperfect-you will have these variations from a handmade dough which is why others have used a molded frozen dough shell for their crust.

      Josh, your comment here supports the cliche’ that insults will not grant you favor. Part of the title of this blog suggests that I might be critical of a product. In this case I was due to the fact the dough was undercooked.

      Nothing wrong with my reading abilities, I just didn’t like how the pizza turned out. Almost raw dough is NOT “perfectly imperfect”. But then again, I wasn’t lucky enough to be born itno the obviously pleasant and graceful world that is the Tu household.

      Unanswered prayers and all that.
      Thanks for reading!

      Actually, hes quite correct. Most dominos places run there ovens from 550 to 600, depending on business and oven fluctuation. (Five to six min) Most people sadly dont make a pie a correctly, so the pizza gets burnt from lack of dough in the middle. So the owners of the shops turn down there ovens to rediculous temperatures and strip the pizzas of sauce, that might have cooked into the dough. Eg.) I have to run my pan pizzas THREE TIMES through the oven before I can digest it. (Typically requires water on top of the pizza). Anyways… the point… do not eat dominos pizza, unless it is VERY well done. Oh and the info. Im going on year 4 at dominos, orangeville.

    Just got a Pan Pizza delivered from Dominos and it SUCKS. WAAAAY undercooked…and bounced off the box lid. Called them for a prompt replacement. NEVER again!

      Ditto. I made it through one piece. Greasy and gooey, way undercooked. I even cooked it an extra 8-10 minutes in my own oven hoping to “Fix it” and it was still just a gummy mess. Ick. Dominos is officially off my list of pizza I will buy. Their “hand-tossed crust” tastes terrible and then they put that awful garlic butter that is bitter and tastes nothing like garlic butter on the crust.. (despite the fact that I ordered it without it about 5 times). Their old deep dish frozen dough was MUCH better. No more $ from me!
