My mum was craving for cheese pizza one fine day, and we decided to get the 2 Pizzas Deal from Domino's Pizza to share among the family. There are actually quite a few pizza outlets near us, but I have to admit that the reason I pushed for us to order from Domino's Pizza was because I wanted to try their Chocolate Lava Cake after reading rave reviews for it. This was actually our first time ordering from Domino's as we usually order from the other pizza stores nearer to us. We placed an order v
This was actually our first time ordering from Domino's as we usually order from the other pizza stores nearer to us. We placed an order via their ordering system online which was user friendly and a breeze to use. I thought that the Great Pizza Service (GPS) Tracker was also especially fun to play with, not to mention immensely useful in helping to track our order.
We were pretty impressed with their fast service and delivery. Our order was acknowledged in less than 3 minutes of placing it and our pizzas were ready for delivery in less than 15 minutes. They delivered the pizzas to our doorstep in just 28 minutes, 2 minutes less than the guaranteed 30 minutes delivery time as advertised.
Best of all, our food were still quite warm! Twisty Bread (U.P. $5.80)
There was a very strong buttery and garlicky aroma upon opening the paper bag the Twisty Bread came in, which really whetted up our appetites. This was best eaten hot or warm. The bread was quite soft and chewy on the inside. I found this to be pretty tasty. The usual price was $5.80 but we got this for free as we played and won a e-coupon from their "Eat, Play and Win" game.
2 Pizzas Deal - Regular ($22.00) Simply Cheese on Classic Hand Toasted Crust
This was just an "okay" in my opinion. Not really much of a looker but taste-wise it was acceptable. The hand toast crust was not as thick or "spongy" as I had initially expected. The pizza was baked with Mozzarella, Oregano and Parmesan cheese but it wasn't too cheesy or overpowering, which suited my dad just fine. But my mum and the rest of us agreed that the cheese was not "gooey" enough. Hawaiian Paradise on New York Crust
This was much better in my book and I preferred this over the Cheese Pizza. The crust was quite thin and fairly crisp, while the inside was slightly chewy. The amount of smoked chicken breast chunks, sliced chicken ham and diced pineapple toppings given was not that generous but acceptable. The smoked chicken chunks were especially succulent and we regretted not topping up $1.00 to add on more of it to the pizza. Chocolate Lava Cake (U.P. $6.80) - 5 ★★★★★ for this!!!
This cost us only $4.80 when we got it with the 2 Pizzas Deal. Admittedly, the cake in the slightly misshaped tin foil didn't impress us on first sight but it certainly wowed us with its taste. The chocolate cake was soft and moist on the inside with crusty edges although it was really the smooth, rich and luscious chocolate center inside that won us over. Unlike some lava cakes that were mostly cake with a small portion of molten chocolate centre, the cake layer of the Domino's Chocolate Lava Cake was thin and the inside was almost bursting with a generous amount of heavenly melted chocolate. There was so much of it that we could even scoop out a small spoonful of gooey melted chocolate to eat on its own! But of course, this was best eaten together with the chocolate cake, with the icing on top. Totally sinful but worth every calories! Overall, the pizzas were quite decent and the frequent promotions and bundled deals with purchase of their pizza actually made it quite value for money to go for the deals. Their prompt delivery also certainly worked in their favour. But if you ask me, it is definitely going to be their Chocolate Lava Cake that will keep me going back again (and again) in future!
