    I think it would be considered an inappropriate use of a seat at the coffee shop. Not to mention a possible health code violation.

    Pretty much all home delivery as I understand it. Plus hotspot delivery, and I guess road pavement repair?

    How many Domino's pizzas does it take to fill a pothole?

    He’s delivering that to a weather reporter who is canoeing around in 6 inches of water.

    I apologize on behalf of the entire state of Michigan for both Little Caesar’s and Domino’s. However, it’s not even close – as bad as it is, give me Domino’s over a Little Caesar’s “Hot And Ready” any day of the week.

    The New York slice is pretty much the pinnacle of pizza. But, it can be done anywhere. The fact that it rarely is is ridiculous though.

    All that hoo-hah about the water And the dough and the yada yada...:rolleyes: It’s neither rocket scientry nor brain surgetry. We got a place that does it downtown at the front of a bowling alley. Easily one of the best slices you can get within a couple hundred miles.

    I’m also a fan of the Italian barbarian pizza which is the thin crust coal-fired stuff dripping with olive oil that you can get at a joint near here.

    But any of that casserole-like thick Chicago crap? Hells to the nah. :eek:

    Is that what Kansas City pizza is? With like sweet barbecue sauce on it? I think I just threw up in my mouth - oh no wait, that’s just an un-chewed piece of Little Caesar’s pizza…

    Domino's, Papa John's, and Little Caesar's aren't pizza. Seriously.

    I also rarely buy pizza out. There's just no point.

    Get one of these. I had one made to order for my oven. I cook pizza and bread directly on it, but it helps oven performance overall by acting as thermal ballast.

    I leave it in the oven all the time. It shouldn't be cleaned. Anything that falls on it will just burn off, and you can scrape it away.

    Delivery hot spots are for when you live, or are outside of their area...

    We did the "hot spot" deal when my youth football team won the championship game...had it delivered right to the field. Of course I could have also sent one of the parents across town to any of the gourmet pizza shops or made a reservation for a large party at a restaurant or something, but...honestly 10 cheese pizzas on the sideline was fine.

    "Hot And Ready" is an appealing slogan. Maybe not for pizza, though.

    Even here in the sticks there is a great local NY style pizza place, just down the street from me. I can't recall when I last had Dominoes. 90s? It was horrible 30 years ago. I can't imagine it has got any better.

    There are probably people from places like Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, etc where decent pizza is an anomaly of sorts. They probably move to your neck of the woods and still order Dominoes, just like they did back in Bugtussle. (I don't get it, either).

    My mother didn't eat pizza. She described it as glorified cheese on toast, where every bite tastes the same.

    It is worse now with the new sauce recipe, IMHO.

    What I see is a pizza delivery company aggressively exploring new options for delivery. Good for them.

    Don’t like their pizza? Don’t order it.

    I went there with some colleagues for dinner one night, and was told the wait would be four hours. No pizza on earth is worth a four hour wait unless it's the only food available or there are sexual favors involved. One guy elected to wait, though. The rest of us drove to a Mexican joint for dinner, went back to the hotel, had drinks at the bar, and were headed back to our rooms when he got back. He said the pizza was good.

    Pizza is like intimate relations. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.

    I can just see Big Daddy Love Handles getting pizza after pizza for free because he lost it down that big hole in the front of his face. :lol::lol::lol:
