Domino's Pizza

Yep, that's right, Domino's Pizza is one of our stops on our quest for the best pizza in Cincinnati. Sometimes you need/want quick, cheap pizza, so Domino's, Papa John's, and Little Caeser's are all on the list. And this summer our street starting doing porch nights every other Thursday (our pizza night), so something quick is ideal after attending one of those. Domino's is right around the corner from Kevin's, so after the first porch night, we walked over to his place and Kevin picked up a Pepperoni pizza and a Buffalo Chicken pizza from Domino's. Here's how the pizza ranked:

(1-5 scale, 1=worst, 5=best)

Appearance (overall): 2.83
Aroma (overall): 3.00
Taste (overall): 2.83
Crust - 3.33
Cheese - 2.83

Toppings - 3.00
Sauce - 3.17
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 3.17
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 3.00
X-factor: 3.00 (Nik wrote "dudes!!!" in this section instead of an acutal score, you'll see why below)

So, not a big surprise to me, but Domino's wasn't our favorite pizza. In fact, it has the lowest scores of all of the pizzas places we've tried so far. Here's why: the guys running the place should be in a mocumentary because they could barely run the place and it was quite comical. They some how messed up Kevin's order, but in the end we did get pizza. Also, as Kevin said, the Buffalo Chicken pizza was a let down. Nik thought the buffalo sauce on top looked like bad, squirt bottle ugly. I thought that it should have come with ranch or blue cheese on top or on the side (something with some more flavor!). For both pizzas, there wasn't enough flavor and on top of that, the Pepperoni pizza was too greasy. Overall, we all agreed that Papa John's is better, and it's a close call with Little Caesar's (although Little Caesar's at least has some awesome crazy bread, and we have yet to "officially" review both places). On the plus side, it is quick (if they don't mess up your order) and cheap.
