Review: Domino's - Italian Sausage & Pepper Trio Artisan Pizza

One of a trio of Domino's new Artisan Pizzas, the Italian Sausage & Pepper Trio Artisan Pizza features an artisan-inspired rectangular pizza with tomato sauce, banana peppers, roasted red peppers, green peppers, shredded Parmesan Asiago cheese, and sliced Italian Sausage for $7.99.

Plenty of peppers on this one but none of the spicy variety in case you're wondering. The red and green are mostly the same but the banana peppers add a bit of pickled tartness. There's a healthy sprinkling of crushed oregano as well.
The sauce is used pretty sparingly which is good with thin crust pizzas since they tend to get soggy and limp otherwise. The crust is pretty good with a bit of crisp and a bit of chew; it's missing a bit of moist softness though.

You'll noticed that the slices of Italian sausages are pretty big. There's a fair bit of fennel flavor that's the hallmark of Italian sausage. The slices are actually a little too big as the bites with sausage tell to be overwhelmed by their flavor. I'd prefer it were cubed with a more even distribution.
According to customer ratings on their website, the Italian Sausage & Pepper Trio is the least favorite of the Artisan pizzas with an overall 3.8 of 5.0 rating based on 18 reviews but I actually liked it a little bit better than the Tuscan Salami & Roasted Veggie Artisan Pizza.

I can't help but wonder how it would turn out if Domino's went even simpler with a margherita-style pizza or just basil and pepperoni.

  1. Far from frozen and very delicious... I recommend the Tuscan Salami.

    These are premade frozen pizzas and are not any better than store bought.  I tried to substitute the sauce on one and it is not possible since they are sitting in boxes.  Avoid the hype!!!!

  3. the artisan pizzas look really good especially since i love thin crust but none of their flavor combinations really appeal to me.  a simply margherita or something like that sounds amazing...
