“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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Taste was essentially the same as the rest. I didn’t notice much difference in the cheese. Didn’t taste like Provolone. Uninspiring.
  4. 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!”
