Must be some pizza fans here....

Dominoes triple cheese - stay away. No good. Very sickly unless you plan on having only one or two slices...

Fav pizza: Pepperoni

I think it was back in 1994 or about that year. I was in Malvern (a few miles out of Philadelphia). It was snowing, and it was cold. I stopped on a Domino's and bought a pizza. When buying a pizza in a place I don't know about I usually go for the safe option, such as a plain cheese (margherita). It was late and I was going back to the hotel with no plans of going out after that.

That was the most awful pizza I ever had - and I promised never to have Domino's again. When they started here in New Zealand I told my wife that Hell, Pizza Hutt or any other brand are ok - but not Domino's.

A few weeks ago we saw the new Domino's ad on TV showing the triple cheese pizza, and they describe the "creamy cheddar". What a ugly thought! Cheddar is not creamy, that must be the most fake of the cheeses in the world!

There is a Hell store down the road from me and I love it. Big Pizza in Christchurch is very good, and Mad Dog Pizza was good too but they got bought out by Dominos.

I've personally never been to Dominos, but I had Pizza Hut when I was in New Plymouth at Easter last year and it was terrible. Fortunately, Hell have since opened a branch up there, so I won't have to suffer this Easter!

Dominos meatlovers on a deep dish with extra bbq sauce or Pizza hut cheese crust meatlovers with extra bbq sauce.
I;m a meat lover....

However both are left for dead by Filadelfios, a gourmet pizza place we have here in Dunedin. They have THE BEST pizza in the world. Its indescribeibly good. And the best desserts.

In Wellington I recommend the Il Picollo Pizzeria, Willis St. Very small (only 5 tables, hence the name) the food is great - try the Spagetthi a Carbonara there and you will see. The margherita is very nice...

I went off Pizza Hutt - bad experiences the last few times. Now its Dominos or Hell. Tony Pepperoni is my favourite Domino on a thin and crispy crust. Mmmmmm. Up the road from me I have Hell, Dominos and Pizza Hutt all next door to each other. Oh - and a dodgy fish'n'chip shop.

I still would have favored Eagle Boys (apparently they still existing Oz??), and well, since they got bought you can say goodbye to everything they had..

Not a big fan of Pizza Hutt or Pizza Haven. Quite like Domino's & Hells.
For Domino's I normally get Double Bacon, BBQ, Cheese (or some name like that, can never remember), with extra bbq sauce.
For Hell's I normally get Lust with BBQ & Sweet Chilli Sauce. But I think they've change the recipe/ingredients on it.. doesn't sit anywhere near aswell as it used to. :/

huuuuhummmmm, sorry just had to clear my throat for this one........well, I use to really love the Eagle Boys Pizza's.. nothing else like them really..sadly missed.  But, I have found a irresistible pizza that just melts in your mouth and causes your taste buds to have an orgasm...................the cheese just flows from your mouth in one climatic maneuver, as you fight not to waste any by twisting the cheese round your finger and inserting is back in your mouth (ok, stop with the raised eyebrow! I am still talking pizza here!! really!) ;-) YUMMMMMYYYYYY LOVE THE CREAM CHEESE!! OH YEA,  the pizza Im talking about is the Hungry Kiwis Pizza APRICOT CHICKEN DELUXE... LOVE THE NUTS.

I have to agree with Freitasm, Il Picollo Pizzeria has great pizza and some lovely pasta as well. but if you need to eat it at home you cant go past Hell.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Well.. I grabbed some Hungry Kiwi's pizza on the way home last night... (Lower Hutt store)

It wasn't necessarily bad as such, but it certainly wasn't exceptional. Especially given the prices..
I had the Apricot Chicken Deluxe. Flatmate grabbed a Nacho something a rather.

General consensus. Not that great. : /

Think I'll go back to Hell's & Domino's.

Jp.
