Review: Domino's Thin Crust Pizza

Domino's Thin Crust Pizza
Domino's Thin Crust Pizza is very thin. I don't know why but they choose to cut it in a grid rather than the typical relatively uniform pizza slices. It's one of several crust choices at Domino's and probably my favorite out of them. The Domino's in my area was running a carryout promotion where a large 2-topping pizza was only $5.99.

They're still running almost the same promotion but pared down the toppings to one in somewhat ghetto fashion; the Domino's I've driven past just taped over the "2" with a written "1."

Domino's Thin Crust is not quite crunchy, but somewhat crisp. It still retains a bit of doughy softness which feels more like pizza and less like a cracker. Each slice is very light in your hand. This makes it easy to eat a lot. If you're a heavy eater, you could polish off a large Thin Crust by yourself.

They say the pizza incorporates their new robust tomato sauce, but I really can't tell the difference.

Still, the pizza had a nice blend of sweet and salty. And a slight bit of spiciness with the pepperoni and Italian sausage.

    its supposed to be cut 3 equal cuts side to side, then 3 equal cuts up and down.Sad representation of a good product

  2. I'm not a fan of the grid cut either. One of the reason's I stopped eating Domino's thin crust and now focus on Papa John's thin crust

  3. Hm... I've never tried Papa John's thin crust before. I guess the grid cut might be good if you're throwing a party and need appetizers?

  4. just tell them to cut it like a normal pizza

  5. I wouldn't mind the grid cut if the pizza was any good.  Ordered large thin crust with extra cheese and mushrooms.  Has all the taste of a frozen supermarket or school cafeteria pizza.
    In the future, no thank you.

  6. That pizza looks like somebody sat on it.

  7. oh god i tried domino's thin crust today. tastes and eats like if you murdered a cat on a piece of cardboard. STAY AWAY.

  8. How can I stay away now... that's my favorite flavor of pizza.

  9. yeah, I tasted the thin crust with my dad, and we were both convinced that they just used cardboard instead of dough. just no...

  10. Its been 2-1/2 yrs since this original review, and now Domino's does 2 topping medium pizzas for $5.99 when you buy 2 or more, any crust. I always choose thin crust. I get 1) italian sausage, mushroom, black olives and 2) ham, pineapple and mushroom. I like the grid cut because it is easier to hold the pieces. One time it was cut traditionally, and it was hard to pick up the pieces without the toppings falling off.

    As for the robust-inspired sauce, it has a spicy kick to it that the hearty marinara does not. I think the original reviewer probably could not tell the difference because the pepperoni and sausage were spicy themselves and overpowered the slight spicy flavor of the sauce. I am wimpy when it comes to pepper (black pepper, jalapeno pepper, etc) so I stick to the marinara. Though I have had the robust-inspired sauce and did not feel it was too spicy for my tolerance level (which is low compared to most people).

    Compared to hand-tossed, thin crust has more fat, but less carbohydrate: medium size, 1/4 of whole pizza --
    (data for CRUST ONLY)
    thin crust = 20 grams carbs, 7 grams fat
    hand tossed = 28 grams carbs, 3 grams fat
    deep dish = 25 carbs, 6 grams fat
    brooklyn = does not come in medium size

    I'm not sure that the thin crust saves that many carbs which was my goal in buying it in the first place. I always bought hand-tossed crust until I decided to save on carbs. But the texture of the thin crust is very smooth on the bottom and feels almost like eating paper. I'd much rather have the fluffy hand-tossed crust vs deep dish which is too greasy.

    My two-cents worth... for free! :)

  11. See.... the issue with almost everything is it's personal opinion. I really enjoy Dominos thin crust, however you also have to factor in different regions. Not every pizza is exactly the same. Now... with papa johns Idk, their pizza was disgusting the one time I had it. As far as "Grid" cut goes I prefer it, triangles aren't very sturdy against gravity. I like my toppings on my pizza : ) Then again... I usually go to Nancy's pizza over dominos. Dominos is a very thin almost flavorless crust, but it's somehow still delicious. As for Nancy's, Idk... I feel like their "regular" thin crust is just thick enough to not be cardboard and still thin enough to be not eating bread.
