“Brooklyn Style Pizza” is what Domino’s is calling their latest crap-riffic creation. The Domino’s chain itself is Hell’s presence on Earth, and the Hoboken location represents the Devil’s head demon. From awful delivery times and screw-ups, to that tortuous announcer during the hold music, and days of agony while digesting the “food”.

Ok, maybe I was being a bit over the top. I am having trouble with the reasoning behind even trying this, beyond the fact that I was honestly curious to see if they can make a pizza that tastes somewhat like what a pizza is supposed to taste like.
After reading a review on that great NY Pizza review blog SliceNY, where they said: “Is the pizza good? No. But strangely, yes.”, I wanted to see for myself.
Ah, but it gets very annoying. It wasn’t as simple as calling up, placing the order, and receiving it.
I tried last week, but after two hours, the pizza never showed up. Multiple calls, “the driver just left” each time, I could only imagine what the screw up was. After 2 hours and 18 minutes, I called and spoke with the manager. I received a future “credit” for my troubles.
Today, I tried again. Ordered a Brooklyn Style Pepperoni Pizza. Lo and Behold, they arrived quickly (about 35 minutes.) Pizza was missing the pepperoni. I guess that’s what a free pizza is supposed to look like.
What is the verdict? I’ll sum it up in a few points:
- Domino’s never killed me. It’s just not real pizza. This was the closest they’ve ever come. But they’re still far away.
- Crust was the best one they’ve ever done (for them at least). Was thin and not as filling as the rest of their carb masterpieces.
- Taste was essentially the same as the rest. I didn’t notice much difference in the cheese. Didn’t taste like Provolone. Uninspiring.
- If you ever need to order a Domino’s in a pinch, this version is by far your best bet. Haven’t tried the two toppings yet, and will probably never try.
The things I do for this website. Sigh.
One thing, though. If I ever have a dream about that endless loop of product promotions I heard over and over again while on hold for 12 minutes, I WILL storm over to the Domino’s headquarters and make it stop. Cheesy Breadsticks, Buffalo Kickers, and ice-cold Coke, “Get the door, it’s Hoboken411 here to lay a beating on everyone!”
