It simply has to be Dominos!

I've disliked Domino's for the longest time. I felt the crust was flacid, the toppings, at best, mediocre. Lately I've tried a few of the local places that deliver, and was very disappointed with their product, so, reading this thread, I tried Domino's "Brooklyn" pizza last night.

It's not very good, but it's a bit better than the local delivery places. I'll try 'em again, especially because their prices are better. Why pay high prices for mediocre quality?

I was a General manager for them back in the late 80's during the pizza wars. Their quality suffered a great deal in the late 90's up to recently- so much the pizza was absolutely disgusting. They have revamped their recipes and quality recently- which I think now outperforms all the competition (major chains). So if I were to order for the employees it would be Domino's Pizza!

When I went back to school I worked for a Papa Johns franchise for the interim and this particular family was great to work for; they produced a quality product. The past few years it has slipped tremendously- enough to where I cannot bear the thought if eating it. We all knew of John Schnatter's self absorbed swollen ego- he is a legendary SOB in my opinion. In light of his recent comments to the media he now rates as the greediest sorriest piece of shit imaginable and I will never spend a single penny towards his business again! And I'll spread the word for the working man.

Usually I make my own, but for economy I concur with Digiorno, Walmart, Costco etc... One of those in the freezer and you'll have decent pizza without dealing with the phone and in less time. I like to doctor one up with extra cheese, meat, spices etc..
