Damn, it’s too bad it’s not BOGO.

A few years ago Domino's ran a BOGO deal that also applied to walk in orders but it wasn't being advertised in the stores. I was able to pick up a free pizza almost every single day of the week for an entire month. I’d arrive at the restaurant and walk up to the cashier to lay the seeds/set the stage for the great pizza getaway. I’d always ask, “Hey, are you guys still doing the BOGO pizza deal?”, even though I already knew that the deal was ongoing. The cashier would typically reply “Yep, buy one and get the second pizza of equal or lesser value for free”. I’d say, “Great, I’m just waiting until my friend gets here until we order”.

I take a seat off to the side and wait for my mark to come prancing through the door doing the little pizza dance that everyone does when they’re about to stuff gooey cheese down their neck. I’d always wait for a single male to enter, at this point I quickly study his body language to determine if he was a walk in customer or if he had ordered ahead of time. It’s easy to tell when someone has already placed their order because they’re practically doing the Macarena by the time they get to the counter. If the guy isn’t in full on dance mode, but he's whistling or smiling for no apparent reason then I know I’ve got my mark. At this point I get up to intercept him just as he enters the line of sight of the cashier and I say, “wow, it’s cold out there tonight, eh? How’s the traffic?”. It’s pretty much game over at this point, unless of course this guy was already planning on ordering two pizzas. I walk a single stride behind him as he approaches the counter. I maintain the biggest smile on my face, a smile so big that you’d think I was about to eat pizza for just the second time in my life. The only thing I have to do now is maintain that huge smile on my face and keep nodding/bobbing my head for absolutely no reason , standing beside him but just outside of his field of vision. I contort my body and neck in a certain position, using a carefully crafted visual perspective so that it appears to the cashier that I’m practically resting my head on his shoulder. Once he finishes telling her what he wants on his pizza, all I have to say is “Ummmmm, I’m just gonna get a large pepperoni”.

There’s one final step after you relay your order to counter and it’s crucial, if you don’t time it properly you risk putting the whole operation in jeopardy, and believe me there’s nothing worse than getting busted trying to weasel a free pizza out of an honest guy. A few of my neighbours began asking my wife why they’d often me sprinting down the street with a pizza box clutched to my chest with pizza slices flying all over the street, running as if my life depended on it. I’ll admit I found myself in a few situations where my ruse started to unravel just as a scorching hot pizza was about to be put into my arms. If I had put a lot of effort into engineering that free pizza there was no way in hell I was letting my mark take it home only for it to end up getting squished at the bottom of his freezer.

I’ve been crafting a new ploy over the past several months with some of my closest associates. It’s a fairly sophisticated PAT (Pizza Acquisition Technique) and it involves using an additional person at the counter (probably my mom or my 6 year old daughter), but I’m fairly certain that this new technique will allow me to leave the restaurant with both of the pizzas, and on certain occasions I will also be driving his car back to my own house.

Tried googling to see if this was a copy pasta.
Can't tell if real or not since this is rfd, but that's a pretty detailed process.

To anyone who frequents Domino's regularly, do you find that the quality (and how generous they are with toppings) differ from location to location? or are they pretty consistent? I remember going to one a while back and using a coupon, and barely got any toppings. Not sure if I just went to a "bad" Domino's.

Was going to go with Dominos this evening but instead went the healthy route and used a KFC cyber Monday online coupon for 50% off all buckets. Ordered the sports bucket (reg $60, paid $30) and I am stuffed. Burned so many calories off eating all that fried chicken!!

PS - the online 50% code is KFC50 for cyber Monday only

I just had to google the definition of copy pasta. I found some information about it on knowyourmeme but I don't even get the concept. How and where exactly are these blocks of text posted and what is the intended goal of the poster? It sounds like I fall into a classification of spam! I'm a spammer? Apparently I'm also a NUISANCE!!? AM I EVEN MORTAL!!!?

I don't really see how it could be classified as spam. It seems a bit prejudicial to classify a large block of text as spam, especially if there isn't a discernible motive/brainwashing/propaganda/product being sold.

Anyway, I guess I belong to the Copy Pastafarians now....I never thought I'd go out like this....

So long RFD and thanks for all the deals

I never used to go to Domino's because the closest one from me was about 6-7km away, then about a year ago (if not more) then opened a location less than 2KM from me, and its been a hit in my area. It's constantly busy. I always go to that location and the consistency never changes, they are really generous from the toppings. The deals and the price and amount of toppings you get, has put a damper on the Pizza Pizza in my area that once it was busy and now its empty everytime i drive by, because of prices and stinginess.

You literally have to ask for the pizza well done if you get one of those specialty ones with tons of toppings like extravaganza. They really do not stinge at my local Dominos.

Does anyone know if they carry some of the newer parkas for men, such as grassland parka, the topland parka or the steller canvas parka and if so, what is the discount? Thanks!
Last time I checked my local Pizzeria didn't carry any Parka's but I can inquire for you next time I go if you'd like.

I think he might actually be on to something. If I owned a pizza joint I'd make all of my drivers wear really expensive parkas with the price tag hanging around his neck. I'd make it a requirement that they have to try to upsell the customer on the jacket after they successfully deliver the pizza. I'd pay driver a 10% commission on sales (paid out in pizza coupons only), and the top parka salesman at the end of the month get's a FREE SLICE OF PIZZA (cheese only, NO additional toppings, must be eaten on the premises, don't even think about stuffing that slice into the pockets of one of my parkas so you can take it home to your starving family, while quantities last)

I just got off the phone with an old friend of mine, Luigi, he used to be the head pizza tosser at Pizzaville's flagship restaurant in Little Italy. A few years ago his picture was all over the news, he was suspected as being the mastermind behind the Roma Railroad Scandal. The true story of the Roma Railroad has never been told to the public, but I was there, outside selling my ill gotten/re-certified pizza's in the parking lot to the families that could never afford to buy one directly from the source.

I eventually became quite familiar with some of the goons who were making tens of dollars every day by smuggling those juicy Roma tomatoes out of Pizzaville into the back alleys where tomato runners would eagerly wait to overfill their yellow No Frills bags with tomatoes. In less than a month Pizzaville went from the #1 rated pizza joint in the city to to filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. I recall seeing Pizzaville boxes left strewn all over the city, full pizzas minus a bite from one slice left in apartment building lobbies, stacks of Pizzaville boxes left outside homeless shelters, because people seem to think that homeless people wouldn't be able to tell the difference between a sauce made with Roma tomatoes and a sauce made with hot house tomatoes.

A few weeks after Pizzaville filed for bankruptcy protection they started broadcasting an advertising campaign on the radio offering people free sex on rainy days if they would just please come in and eat a slice of pizza. They couldn’t even afford to pay a Canadian voice actor for the commercial so they had to outsource someone from a foreign country. It’s a miracle that they’re still in business today but their sauce has never returned to its former glory. I think they now use a 30% Roma / 50% Hot House / 20% ketchup mixture for their pizza sauce.

Anyway, Luigi ended up losing his job because someone claimed he was behind the whole heist, but I've known Luigi for a long time and he's the kind of guy who goes out of his way to make sure each slice of pizza has an equal amount of pepperoni's on it. I've seen some pizza makers who do that little trick where they grab a handful of olives and pretend to be dropping them onto the pizza as they use sleight of hand tricks under the watchful eyes of the camera while palming 1 out of every 3 olives and sneakily stuffing them into their pockets. I've seen Luigi in the kitchen and he doesn't even wear pants, underwear or a shirt, just an apron and socks. His buttocks is always exposed, and I doubt he'd have any reason to palm the olives, if you know what I mean...

Who do I think was behind the Roma Railroad? It was most likely The Delissio Boys in Canada working with the Digiorno's in the USA.

How did both of those mob controlled companies go from making bland pizzas to pizzas that could trick the average person into thinking it was delivery pretty much overnight? There's only one way, it's with a Roma tomato.

Once the pizza has cooled down be it room temp just put it on a plate or ziplock bag and put into the freezer. I recommend freezing each pizza slice for at least 10-15mins individually before stacking them up. I also recommend having some aluminum foil or parchment paper or waxed paper or screw all that and RFD'er it by getting like 10-12 produce bags from the grocery store while you're grocery shopping and use that to separate the pizza slices.

If you get most of the air out of the ziplock bags then you will have less ice crystals on the pizza. You would be good 1 month if you just used produce bags instead of ziplock bags. I find 2-3 months with ziplock bags before I get a lot of ice crystals. Now if you vaccum sealed it can go the distance without any ice crystals on it for a year.





You can microwave the pizza with a lid on the plate for 20-30seconds then put into a toaster oven at 350F for about 5 mins to crisp up the bottom. Alternatively you can use a frying pan with a lid and crisp up the bottom that way as well. I have done both and have gotten a a crispy bottom and oozing cheeze. You may need to add a little more time to the microwave time I mentioned as everyones microwave power is different. My times are for IIRC 1200W.

Also would recommend getting an oven thermometer to know what your oven temp is producing when you put it to the labeled temp. Like for me my toaster oven is off by 50F below the listed setting. It is handy to have but you can always ask around and see who has one to loan you. It's good to check every once in a while how true the temp you set on the oven to the temp inside. Once you know the temp difference write it down and stick in on the oven so you know next time you are baking to adjust accordingly.
I am going to give this a try, i just tossed a few slices into freezer bags and will see how they do in a week or two.
Thanks

lol I'm quite honestly blown away that this idea is being discussed so casually. I've obviously heard of boxed frozen pizza at the grocery store, but stocking up and freezing already cooked fast food pizza is unheard of to me
Well, everyone has their own reason for it. I wouldn't say that I am stocking up. I live alone, so I don't want to be eating the entire pizza 3-4 days in a row, lunch and dinner. Also, I already have groceries for most of the week. But I do want to get on the deal and make a couple meals out of it on the weekend. By freezing, I can always save the second half for later, when I don't have food at home. Now I know it can be done and the best way to do it to maximize the pizza. This will be my weekend treat :)

I'm not too regular - I only get Domino's when it's half off. But I do find that location by location it isn't always consistent. Back in Richmond, the one near my house that was great, always generous with toppings and made the extravaganzza pan pizza correctly - toppings to the edge and well done like I asked. The other location further from my house gave me a completely different pizza in terms of level of quality. It wasn't well done, the toppings didn't go to the edge - maybe 1 inch from the crust, and they really skimped on the toppings. I think I counted like 5 pineapple pieces on the medium and NO visible cheddar at all. Anyway, if this ever happens to you, you could always call back and discuss. They'd probably offer you a free replacement pizza for another day.

I always feel weird complaining about food, especially for a delivery order since the guy who ends up being most affected by it is the driver and it's almost never his fault. I usually end double tipping a driver if he forgets something substantial and has to go back to the store to get it. I once ordered a stuffed crust pizza from Pizza Hut and it ended up coming with the plain homestyle crust. It was a relatively minor issue and certainly wasn't something I would've expected them to immediately rectify but I wanted to call it in since I remember the order taker reciting back the order and I kinda just wanted to have them put a credit on my address/phone number since I pretty much always get them to stuff that shit.

They ended up sending the same guy back with a properly stuffed pizza and a free six pack or 2l bottle of soda, I can't remember which one, however I do remember that I drank so much soda that night that I pretty much spent the rest of the evening levitating a few inches above the sofa seat cushions. I also ended up tipping the driver again since I felt bad for being the person to complain about something that results in wasting his time. He also told me to keep the first pizza when I tried to hand it back to him, but I assume that's most likely a company policy as they'd likely need to chuck it in the garbage anyway.

Totally understand your point of view for this one. It was nice of them to rectify it right away plus provide a free pop. In my case, it was carry out so I didn't have to worry about re-delivery. Plus I was ok with having the credit on file for the next time I felt like pizza. But I totally get that for a delivery order. I must say I rarely get delivery because I like to save $ on tips and delivery fees and such. Much rather grab it myself on the way home.
