Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

Some of the best Pizza I had was in downtown Chattanooga, TN. It was a spacey looking cafe type Pizza place and the Pizza was exceptionally good.

Next you'll be telling me English curry is best.
It. Is.

But I agree, I have no patience for the Provenance Nazis. Food is what it is. Pizza (as we know it) and democracy (as we know it) certainly didn't originate in Greece, and the American style pizza is so different and such a part of American culture, that it can hardly still be considered a derivative of anything made in Naples.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

The Pizza situation is rather miserable here in Switzerland. Either you you for the cheap, bland option and order from one of the many Kebab places ( with many of them lacking some serious hygiene principles)...or you'll spend and arm and a leg for it at an overpriced restaurant.

There are many varieties, many origins, many preferences.

I enjoy them all. Except I definitely did not enjoy a true deep dish in Chicago.

The two best pizzas I have ever had were in southern France, once near Ganges, and recently in Villefranches (next to Nice). The Greek-style pizza made by the Chinese chef at Sunshine pizza on the Drive in Vancouver is the best deeper dish pie on the planet.

Pizza is hit and miss in Italy outside Naples. Less so in N America.

Next you'll be telling me English curry is best.
I wasn't getting snobby about it. It was a JOKE - a light-hearted comment because the poster said "it's good - for a European pizza" when pizza comes from Europe originally. Honestly, some people on here really need to lighten up! I thought the smilie was a good indicator that it was a joke, do I now need to write explicitly "THIS IS A JOKE" after every post that contains a joke? Dear Lord.

I agree, different areas of the world have different takes on the same dish. Personally, I love all forms of pizza. You can't really go wrong with the ingredients.

..now with all due respect, but historically, you didn't make much sense on this forum (at times) and thus it was easy to misinterpret your post as a serious opinion instead of a joke.

Hence the smilie. I thought that would be enough, but obviously not.

Yeah he wasn't going for soggy and sloppy

Pizza's in Switzerland have a very hard crust, after having one here in a local place ( not dominos) i couldn't feel my fingers anymore from pushing so hard on my knife in order to get a chunk out of it..

It is just such a ridiculous thing to bring up in the first place, that you must be serious. And, as I said, I hear it way too often in these parts.

From time to time a cappriciosa and add a dash of chili on it.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

Dominos does have good crust edges. Chewy and airy at the same time. And they deliver without pain. And that special something that accompanies memories of home (although I would never order Dominos back home unless it were 4am).

For Italian-style pizza , I enjoy Solito Posto on Josefstrasse.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

They don't do stuffed crust here though. They do something called "Crispy" base (at least in the French part that's what it's called). Not my preference, I like pizza to be as carby as possible, but it's my French OH's choice. Maybe it's a more refined taste.

Without a doubt, the best Pizza I ever tasted was Chicago style at Gino's East.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

So...boys and girls here is my ultimate recipe for a 10 Frank "almost home made pizza".

Go to Coop and buy a non-frozen pizza Magarita (CHF 4,95) and a small packet of fresh chicken or turkey filet. Cut the meat in small pieces and fry it on a pan.

Put the meat on the pizza, add lots of onions, oragano and curry and let it bake at whatever it says on the packet.

Serve hot with a cold beer.

Best pizza in CH.

I think he means that yellow crap they put on chicken sandwiches here. Tastes like turmeric and sugar.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

I used to buy a margherita pizza from the supermarket, while still frozen, chip off the cheese analogue or whatever rubbish was on it, and put a few blobs of proper mozzarella, bake, and then out of the oven top with some pata negra and baby spinach leaves. Quick drizzle of good olive oil and a couple snips of fresh oregano and there's no memory of the supermarket left. After that, I used to buy pre-prepared pastry from the supermarket. Almost doesn't matter which kind you buy - filo, brick etc, it's still tasty. (just remember to get the all-butter if applicable, the cheaper pastries are made with oil and taste off).

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

Although I don't put curry on top, or poultry for that matter, I also do the same.

Well... I never groan at other people for their personal taste - and looking at some English food discussions here there are far better reasons. I find the average Migros curry powder fits an chicken and onion pizza fairly well.
