I ordered pizza from Domino's Pizza for the first time recently - first time for ordering takeaway pizza and first time for Domino's. I thought the idea of ordering through a website was brilliant and I wish all takeaways had this facility. It was really easy to browse the menu, order and pay and you can even view the progress of your delivery in real time. I ordered the two for the price of one special deal for myself, my husband and my son and we had two medium, which are the 11.5" size. One was called a New Yorker and the other was a Meat Feast. They arrived bang on the 8pm delivery slot I had requested and the driver was very polite and friendly. However, the pizzas, as far as I was concerned were awful. At first I thought they'd got the order wrong as both pizzas looked exactly the same, but I eventually realised the Meat Feast had little mounds of brown stuff on it, presumably the minced beef. This was my husband's pizza and he polished the lot off, but then he eats anything you give him. The New Yorker had a few little squares of ham and bits of pepperoni on it and was extremely greasy, limp and soggy, with the tomato sauce tasting more of chemicals than tomatoes. I managed one slice and gave the rest to my son to finish off. Both pizzas looked just the same as the ones you pay a pound or two for at the ASDA deli counter, and having parted with £12.99 for these two sorry offerings, I felt well and truly ripped off! Considering the poor quality of their ingredients, their profit margins must be absolutely astronomical. Needless to say, I won't get bitten again and when we next fancy takeaway food, will stick to the Chinese or the Indian.
