Domino's Pizza originated in the USA in the 1960s. Domino's is an international pizza delivery company and they have stores around the world. Domino's pizzas can be bought ordered by visiting the store, over the phone or online through
When you visit the website, you are asked to submit your post code. Your nearest store will pop up and they will confirm if they deliver to you or not. The website is engaging yet uncluttered. Everything is easy to read and the pictures of the food that Domino's offer, are tastefully presented.
The main area of the website is split into easy to navigate sections. The website allows you to order food stage by stage. An account tab is located on the right hand side and records what you have put in your 'basket' and the running total for your order. You can access the important terms and conditions etc along the bottom of the screen.
Domino's special offers are often promoted on the television. Some offers are designed to tie in with current events (Big Brother/World Cup etc) whilst others are regular offers. Current offers include..

You can opt for different pizza bases including stuffed crust (£2.00), thin and crispy etc. You can also swap a regular Domino's sauce to garlic/sundried tomato sauce. Cheese can be exchanged to a low fat version for no extra cost.
There are several pizzas available. Small pizzas are priced from £10.99, medium from £12.99 and large from £14.99. The most expensive pizza is the Quattro Formaggio which is priced at £17.99 for a large size. This pizza is topped with some unusual cheeses. You can buy a 'half and half' pizza which is ideal for families with different tastes and preferences. I won't list all of the available pizzas but here are a few..

Once you have chosen what you want, you can proceed to checkout. Payment can be made by cash (on delivery), by debit or credit card or by PayPal. You will receive an email confirmation. One thing I like about ordering with Domino's is that you can select a rough time for your order to be delivered (in 15 min slots). This is ideal if you know you will be ordering a Domino's as you can put the order in earlier in the day. My local Domino's is Hamilton, Lanarkshire and it is open 11am-11pm. I believe they do lunch food which can be collected though deliveries are for evenings only.
Whilst you wait for your order, you can 'track' it online. The order status changes from 'order placed' 'prepared' 'baked' 'quality control' and 'delivery' A handy thing to watch! There is no delivery charge and the minimum food order is £9.99. The food is presented in cardboard boxes. It is worth noting that you can find out the ingredients list and calorie details of your food on the website.
We don't tend to eat take aways very often now as I cook a lot of food from scratch. On the odd occasion where we want to treat ourselves, we usually opt for a Chinese or Indian. We have to be in the mood for a Domino's. The notion has came over us twice in the past month. We often receive leaflets in offering us money off our order. A recent leaflet came through the post and contained several coupons. One coupon we received was £10 off when we spent £30.00. I would only buy if we have a coupon as I feel Domino's is quite expensive (even if it is tasty food!).
I find the website very easy to use and have never had issues with it. Our nearest store is quite a few miles away yet still deliver to us. I think this is brilliant as the (even closer) Pizza Hut won't deliver to us despite putting vouchers through out door! Whenever we have ordered, our delivery has arrived at the time we asked for it (usually 30mins after ordering).The driver has always been friendly and efficient. I once phoned my local Domino's to double check something and also found them to be pleasant and happy to help.
Food is always well presented and more importantly, hot. Domino's have such a good range of food available and there is something to suit everyone. In the past, we have tried some of the limited edition pizzas which we found to be good. The desserts menu changes regularly and I must say, I miss the brownies that they used to offer! The current deals are really good and a few weeks ago, we took advantage of the 'buy a medium pizza and get a dessert free' deal which worked out a good price.
The order we placed a few weeks ago was very satisfying. The medium pizza has 8 slices and they are big slices which are pre-cut. On that occasion, we opted for a 'half and half' pizza on a regular base. The base is different from other pizzas in my opinion. It doesn't taste greasy or heavy and the toppings were plentiful. My fiance had Ham and Pineapple on his half and I had Americano (BBQ sauce, pepperoni, chicken, onion and herbs). Everything was cooked to perfection and they didn't skimp on the meat - very flavoursome and filling. Previous pizzas we have enjoyed include the Texas BBQ and the Mighty Meaty. If you can get meatballs as an extra topping then do so as they are delicious.
Our most recent order was Friday night and we placed an order for delivery at around 5.30pm and by that time, I was starving! We made use of our coupon and spent £30.00. This is a lot of money to spend on a meal for just the 2 of us but there was enough there to do up to 4 people. Our total order came to £20.31 when the coupon was deducted so a decent saving and ideal if you are having a few people around for a take away and film.
We ordered two sides - Garlic Mozzarella Sticks (5 breaded garlic mozzarella sticks served with a dip -vegetarian friendly) and the Strippers Combo (a full portion of chicken strippers and potato wedges. Served with dips). The portion sizes are really good and it is a case of 'tuck in'. We also ordered a Sweet Chilli dip but there were few, flavoursome dips with the sides and they were presented in foil sealed tubs. The sides were delicious. The mozzarella sticks had a lovely coating and a stringy cheese filling. The potato wedges were lightly spiced and fluffy inside. The chicken strips were like gourjons and very tasty and made with a good quality chicken.
We opted for a 'half and half' pizza again this time - a medium one but with a stuffed crust base this time. The stuffed crust is similar to what Pizza Hut offer. It is lovely and cheesy with a hint of herbs. My fiance opted for 'Hawaiian' on his half which is ham, pineapple and mushroom. He enjoyed it and scoffed every slice without complaint (well he scoffed 2 slices and had the rest when he came home from the pub - it is apparently tasty even when cold!) . I found the Hawaiian to be very tasty and the pineapple pieces were lovely and juicy.
I went for 'Spanish Sizzler' which had a mix of roast chicken, green peppers, sausage and Roquito peppers.
This pizza is quite spicy so not for those who prefer milder options. There was plenty of topping on my half and I found the pizza to have a delicious, but hot flavour. The chicken was well cooked (almost chargrilled) but the chorizo sausage was in small cubes and I personally prefer slices of sausage on my pizza. It was tasty though I prefer Americano. The tomato based sauce under my half was lovely and flavoursome and the cheese as slightly golden on top. A pleasant combination.
You would thing that we wouldn't have room for dessert but you would be wrong. I always manage to fit dessert in! On the last two occasions, we have plumped for the waffles (2 baked waffles with a sprinkling of sugar, served with a chocolate dip). Our waffles were wrapped in tin foil inside a box and even after an hour or so, were still perfectly warm. Two is plenty for two people to share as a 'sweet treat' following the pizza. They are a good size and thickness - golden brown and have a slightly rough texture. They are delicious sweet and dipped in the chocolate, they are to die for! Heaven! The chocolate is quite rich so counteracts some of the sugary sweetness from the waffles.
I do feel a few more desserts choices would be beneficial to the company. The cookies are yummy too.
Overall I can highly recommend ordering from the Domino's website. It is simple to order food, convenient, the service is great and the food is delicious and fresh tasting. The prices are a bit higher than your average chippy pizza would be though the quality is far better. Look out for leaflets coming through your door as you can save yourself a bit of cash. I normally pay by cash but have used both my debit card and PayPal without any problems - it is secure and easy to pay.
I have never had a bad 'meal' from Domino's so have never had reason to complain.
5 stars - top marks Domino's!
Thanks for reading :)
