I have a few more observations to make after seeing a post on that other pizza site and also after reading this article in USA Today about how Domino's is trying to influence bloggers and social media participants:
http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/food/2009-12-16-dominos16_ST_N.htm

The USA Today article did not mention that Domino's is also launching a six-week, $75 million ad campaign, including 15 and 30-second television spots and one minute radio spots. Story over at Forbes:
http://www.forbes.com/2009/12/21/dominos-pizza-recipe-ad-campaign-cmo-network-dominos.html
 
How the general public perceives the recipe change may not be the same as the comments on food blogs and message boards. Sales figures will then tell how well this recipe change is working for them.

I never bought pizza anywhere because of an ad campaign.

You "had" to eat Domino's several times...why?
 
If you do not like it you  ate it because of someone else...maybe?

I try to repress those memories for the most part.  One time I was starving at midnight on Sunday  in Gatlinburg and they were the only food available and a couple of  other times it was because of folks at the Veterans Home ordering it  and was the only food available.  Enough of such talk!!

You mean you ordered it and have the nerve to ask how anyone could or would ever order or eat Domino's? Chutzpah.

I doubt most people order it because they were as desperate and starving on a Sunday night at midnight as I was - I knew it would be bad but I had no idea how bad it would be til I forced myself to eat it rather than die of starvation.

You poor man.....surely you have sought therapy after enduring such traumatic incidents! 

I will pray for your soul tonight.

At a large Christmas party yesterday, our hosts ordered six different new recipe Domino's handtossed pizzas to supplement the food they prepared in their kitchen. Having so many different  pies to look at and sample, it became obvious Domino's did not increase the quality of their raw ingredients by a large amount. The people who bash Domino's will not fall silent. The changes were most noticeable on a plain cheese pie. I did find the sauce better. (To taste the sauce, I had to lift a cooled clump of cheese off the slice.) To me, the old sauce was 'astringent'. I didn't find the new sauce to be sweeter, but to be less astringent. There was more seasoning in the sauce, making it closer to the sauce recipes found in the best of the new frozen pizzas, or to a good canned sauce like Pastorelli. The cheese was curious. IMHO, it is "pizza cheese" made by someone like Leprino Foods. It had a smoky smell that hit you when you opened the box, but tasted like a lot of "pizza cheeses" used by makers of budget frozen pizzas and some other pizza chains. Then there is the dough vs. crust issue. I believe the dough balls they use are of the same old recipe. There is nothing new mixed into the dough balls. The modification is that they are brushing a mixture similar to Hungry Howie's Garlic-Herb Crust flavor onto the outer edge of the piece of dough. When you break off the crust from a slice and eat it, it is very similar to a soft garlic finger. The flavor of garlic was not overpowering.
Once you start sampling slices with pepperoni, extra cheese, sausage, ham, jalapeno, onions, garlic, bacon, etc. you can no longer notice any changes in the sauce or cheese, though you still can taste the garlic on the edge of the piece of dough. These stronger flavors overpower the taste of the sauce and cheese.
Thankfully, I tried these slices on someone else's nickel. Maybe this recipe change will soon be forgotten, like previous Domino's recipe changes.

I saw the commercials where their feelings look all hurt that people think the sauce is ketchup & the crust is cardboard & doughy. I am not sure I will try it, but was wondering how they didn't know that? Didn't they eat their own product ever?

I'm not sure they did eat their own product, but even if they did and the video is correct, look at how they "test" food in their test kitchen: they use fresh ingredients.  If the video is accurate, nothing is frozen, comes from a  can or plastic bag like it would be if you were running a true Domino's delivery franchise.  The freshness factor in itself would help improve the quality of taste at least a little bit.

are they adding TASTE ?
real ingredients?
people that really care about the quality?
I don't even know why I'm responding to this because I don't eat this crap.
a frozen Tony's with extra cheese is better than Dominos.
Pizza Slut is better than Dominos when the only choice is a chain.
I'll use my usual response that always rings true;
you can put lipstick on a pig & its still a pig.


I hate to repeat myself , but...

I tried the new recipe.  The sauce was a little better, but I was put off by the garlicy crust.  My socks were not knocked off and I had bad breath.
 
Bottom line - over the years all the artisan, brick oven, Neopolitan-style pies that are now available nation-wide has refined my palate.

I haven't had Domino's since ours closed in 1992. I'm more of a Little Caesars man myself; Pizza Hut made me sick the last two times I was there, and both the nearest Papa John's and Domino's are 60 miles south in Bay City.

They finally admitted that they make crappy pizza and they think we should believe that they an do better? P.T. Barnum was right.

I'm glad David_NYC got to sample them on someone else's dime!  I guess they think they've spray painted the trash can gold.

I havent had Dominoes in a few years and I dont intend to start now. There are too many good pizza places here to even bother with Dominoes or any chain places. I can name 3 just within 5 miles opf my house that are GOOD local buisnesses that make a FAR better pizza than Dominoes ever could at their best. It is fast food just like McDonalds just in pizza form.
