The cockroach pizza of Dominos Dickson

By johnboy 12 October 2008 54

This pic sent in by a friend. The leggy beasty is right dab in the middle.

Dominos acted swiftly to provide a refund and remove all the pizzas in the order, they did however leave a bottle of Coke as a freebie.

The poor bloke who ate the adjacent slice to the cockroach is yet to regain the courage to eat pizza however. If only he’d eaten the cockroachy slice no-one would ever have known the difference.

Might have to try this L’Unico place before it carks it. Annoying that a place that does good food might not survive, while Dominoes, who don’t even do food, good or otherwise, thrives and puts cockeroaches in teh, er, not-food.

You can get pizzas like that at L’Unico in Kingston.

Do they do a traditional pizza bianco?

Pizza bianca: choice of 6. Sadly they’ve changed their menu so it no longer says “we have no pineapple on the premises”…

If you order “garlic bread” its actually pizza base with just garlic, oil and salt. As it should be.

Food aside, though, be prepared for a surprising mix of good (and pricey) wine in cheap glasses, fancy decor undermined by dodgy ‘improvements’, nice chairs but no tablecloths, and enthusiastic but undertrained wait staff. Weird. I want it to survive because the food is great, but I’m not sure it’ll make it without a Ramsey incident.

Also I’ve found the monkeys behind the counters are some of the rudest little s**t’s I have ever met.

As for cockroaches, it doesn’t surprise me.

Agreed, replace the workers, and keep the cockroaches!!!

Robertos! Now that was real (dial a) pizza.

I think the overall quality and quantity of pizza chains went downhill with the demise of competition to Domino’s. When Eagle Boys and Pizza Haven were around – they kept some pretty healthy competition in the junk pizza game. Now it’s just Domin-cockroach’s.

If the ovens were hot enough, it would kill all the bad stuff wouldn’t it? The worst bit would be if you saw it. Vom.

Yeah your not kidding there. The standard practice at our place when we get pizza from Domino’s is turn on our own oven and give the pizza a few extra minutes. I think when they started to bring out their fancy bases they forgot how to make an ordinary good pizza. That and they should fire all the monkeys they have working at their stores. There has been on more than one occasion I have received the wrong order (after repeating it to them 5 times and reconfirming the price as it seemed wrong), so I up and left (leaving the pizza behind and without paying) and went straight to their competitor down the road.

Also I’ve found the monkeys behind the counters are some of the rudest little s**t’s I have ever met.

As for cockroaches, it doesn’t surprise me. A few years ago I went to Domino’s at Fadden, you could not step anywhere in the store without crushing another insect of some description.

Swore off that should be 😐

Domino’s pizzas sucked before photos of a cooked Roach were released. There are also very clear reasons why these pizza’s are SO cheap, in every respect.

I swore of Domino’s long ago. As they say, you get what you pay for (petrol excluded LOL)

When I was in Thailand, I paid for the privilege of eating lightly seasoned cockroaches and crickets, if I knew I could get it here for free when I buy a pizza I could have saved myself the airfare.

I ordered 10 hawaiian pizzas from Dominos Dickson yesterday. 7 are sitting in my fridge.

thanks GB, will check it out. There’s something very appealing about the simple things in life, and a pizza without all the rubbish topping is one of them.

ant, please let us know when you eventually hunt down the perfect pizza on this side of the Mediterranean!

No word of a lie, this thread has single handedly turned me off bought pizzas.

Here’s my not-so-simple pizza recipe.

Lebanese bread as the base – that’s 6 small bases for about $3!
tomato paste
shaved ham
a good chili salami
red onion sliced as circles
red capsicum for a hit of sweetness and colour
mushrooms – no stork
marinated olives – any
grated cheese – anything that takes your fancy – I use tasty

Bake in oven till cheese melts.
Slice everything ultra thin – important.
Use each ingredient sparingly – important.
Experiment with your own ingredients.

Voila – pizza without the cockroach and pretty good idea what’s in it.

I’ll keep eating there. I’m a poor uni student, cockroach-pizza provides sustenance that college food cannot provide!

Their sales ought to go down cos of their pizzas! I don’t understand why they don’t. Maybe teh cockeroach will do it.
