It’s not often I’d post a recipe for a sandwich but I’ve just enjoyed this one for my lunch. It’s so simple yet so delicious.
Domino’s recently launched their new Gourmet range of pizzas and asked me if I wanted to try them, not being one to turn down a free meal I rounded up a few friends and ordered online.
The Gourmet range features a new thin crust, hand stretched base and is made up of the following 3 pizza toppings:
Firenze: A firey combination of Ventricina salami, pepperoni and Peruvian roquito peppers
Rustica: Juicy chicken breast strips, naturally smoked bacon rashers, baby spinach and SunBlush baby plum tomatoes
Florentine: Delicious Greek feta cheese, baby spinach and SunBlush baby plum tomatoes.
We also ordered the Beef Mexicana pizza which is topped with Ground Beef, chorizo, red & green chillies, tomatoes, onions and sour cream drizzle along wtih some sides (Boneless pork bites, Mozerella sticks, chicken kickers and some wedges) a couple of bottles of pop and some delicious Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
All 4 pizza’s went down a treat, I think I prefer the thinner base to the regular one, it’s crispier and leaves more room for the toppings. Out of the 4 pizzas the Rustica came out top for me, I loved the smokiness of the bacon with the sweetness of the red and yellow tomato. The Roquito peppers on the Firenze were great too, with a great balance of sweet pepper flavour and chilli heat. Also loved the sour cream on the Mexicano..I’ve not thought of drizzling a pizza with sour cream before, although the pizza could have done with a bit more heat as it was just lacking a little oomph!
The sides were all tasty too although everyone thought the pork bites were too chewy and a bit fatty so I don’t think we’d order those again any time soon.
Price wise at £14.99 for 2 large pizzas including delivery it’s not too bad, although if they weren’t on BOGOF a penny shy of £15 seems a bit steep for a single pizza. Domino’s is still the best option we have for local pizza delivery
The order process was fast and simple, although I couldn’t pay by Paypal as we’d apparently gone over the maximum order value for Paypal, this let us track our order online so we knew when it would arrive…quite handy when you’ve got a house full of hungry people. One thing I will say is remember to check the deals tab before adding items to your cart as it didn’t flag up that it was BOGOF on the pizzas so I had to remove them from my basked and re add them from the deals section.
The only hiccup was our pop didn’t arrive with our order but after a quick phone call the delivery driver was back with the bottles, so no problems there.
If you want to give them a go then you can order pizza online from the Domino’s website.
