Ya I suspected that. I was wondering if they changed it in Korea too. They had that huge marketing push admitting their old pizza was terrible. I guess Korea doesn't seem to mind.

The pepperoni pizza I ate here from Domino's was as I remembered it back home-crap.

The same finely chopped, sickly-yellow oily finely grated cheese. The clearly frozen dough, the corn-syruped and not sugared sauce. And still using the ridiculous Dominos hand stretch technique that is prone to bubbling, thin spots, and snow-drift crusts.

But at least it beats Pizza Hut's pan-fried goo.

Still have yet to find good Midwest style pizza in Korea (the largely generic kind made popular by Domino's, Hungry Howie's, & Little Caesar's). Heck, I haven't even found acceptable Chicago or New York style pizza. New York is virtually impossible to properly pull off outside of NY City, the water in NYC is essential to the dough.

Korean pizza companies just suck at the sauce aspect of it. That and they over-cheese and over-top.

Something to think about when ordering from Domino's....

Domino's founder wants to strip a woman's right to choose and make abortions illegal. He has funded Operation Rescue, Right to Life, Priests for Life, and the Committee to End State-Funded Abortion in Michigan.

Papa John's also has funded right-wing extremist causes.

And this has what to do with ordering a pizza?

If you are thinking of a living human being by being pro-life, do you not have a conscience? Perhaps we should not hijack the thread, but why are democrats pro everything except healthcare.

Doesn't sound great when you put it that way. I guess the rat turds lend a little je ne sais quoi to the experience.

Yeah I know, honestly who eats those crappy pizzas? For the price, I'd be much happier eating anything but that pizza. Convenience store food is much better tasting to be honest.

For all you fools, get a costco membership and get cheap good pizza at Costco.

Conscience? What are you talking about??? That's like not eating tuna because it kills dolphins. Dolphins are whales. What the hell do whales do? Nothing! Float around the ocean being lazy and useless.

BTW, I ordered a Dominos pizza last night. I usually make my own, but I was too lazy. Anyway, it tasted like shit. Last time for that.

How does eating tuna kill dolphins, im pretty sure dolphins can eat other kinds of fish too.


Also, I havent had dominos in Korea but I don't think domino's uses a recipe.

Dolphins are very smart & social mammals. Killing them needlessly is unconscionable.

On topic: Korea has other worse pizza on offer than Domino's.
