Dominos Pizza - Forest Hills
Forest Hills, PA 15221
I remember living in a neighborhood where Domino's Pizza was our only nearby option. It's been a long time ... and a lot of pizzas ... since those days. Lately I've seen Domino's advertising saying that they have totally revamped and improved their recipes, so thought it was time to give them another try.
We chose a cheese pizza with a Brooklyn style crust. The crust was hand rolled (the literature says the crusts are hand tossed, but we saw them rolling it). The sauce was mildly spicy and enjoyable, but it was overwhelmed with an artificial garlic flavor on the crust. The pizza was also loaded with an extreme amount of cheese - I had to remove quite a bit of it from my slices so that I could taste the sauce.
On the plus side, the staff was very friendly and pleasant and the pizza was hot, and prepared quickly - which is nice when you are very hungry! The loads of cheese - which the literature states is 100% real mozzarella with a hint of provolone - could be a plus, too, if you like lots of cheese on your pizza. Domino's has eight new oven baked sandwiches that sound interesting, including a Mediterranean Veggie, Sweet & Spicy Chicken Habanero, and Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese among others.
On the other hand, when Veltre's and Foli's are so close to the same neighborhood, I think it will be a while before we give Domino's another try.
