Pizza maza

DOMINO'S - THE pizza chain - now has six outlets in the City. It has two outlets called "express stores" which serve only the deep pan variety pizzas. Its 36-cover outlet, on Brigade Road, is the biggest, while its 24-cover outlet in Indira Nagar is the second largest. The interiors indicate that rather than service at the table, Domino's is more focussed on home delivery. The Indiranagar joint, in a residential neighbourhood, is bright and airy, with pop music gently being played in a chrome-with-plexiglass ambience. The full-length plate glass windows provide the customers a view of two quiet, tree-lined street corners. One often sees here festoons and decor of a children's birthday party.

The menu lists the prices of the varied fare in seven-inch, 10-inch, and 14-inch pizzas that are also "classic hand tossed". The 10-inch pizzas come with a choice of crust. The prices range from Rs. 59 (seven-inch cheese pizza) to Rs. 294 (14-inch pepperoni pizza).

There are two-dozen vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices listed in the menu. And one can, for Rs. 20 or Rs. 50 extra, add on various toppings that include onion, capsicum, tomato, corn, mushroom, pineapple, paneer, black olives, jalapeno, extra cheese, red peppers, sausage/barbecue chicken, ham, and lamb. Domino's offers no French fries, but there is a choice of Chicago Wings (fried chicken, Rs. 65), and twisty bread sticks (four for Rs. 30), Coca Cola, Fanta, Diet Coke, and canned Coke to choose from. Try its seven-inch Farm House pizza, and a "deep dish" deluxe veggie (a 10-inch pizza priced at Rs. 169) or the Chicago Wings (Rs. 65). The Farm House pizza has plenty of cheese that goes right up to the edges, and it has onion, capsicum, mushroom, and tomato for toppings. It comes with a tomato sauce that one may find a bit too salty, though. So it is advisable to do a taste test first. For garnishing, there is oregano, and chilli flakes are provided on request. The deluxe veggie has onion, capsicum, mushroom, corn, and paneer, all with the cheeses that combine to add a luscious touch. The Chicago Wings is served boneless, fried in batter to a golden crispness.

The order is served in boxes. One has to remove the pizzas with the paper plates and tuck them in. The outlet is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.. One can call 5287444.
