Had some bad news last night. After the big day out at Gembrook I was looking forward to a few beverages and a Pizza. At about 8pm I rang I rang Big Daddy's Pizza (a small chain in Melb that does a pretty good Pizza for five and a half dollars). It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that I was unable to get my Pizza as Big Daddy's was closing early on its last night of trade. Farewell my old friend.

I was further informed that the chain was being taken over by Domino's. I've never sampled a Domino's. Someone please tell me this is no reason for sorrow. Tell me they do a great cheap Pizza.

Not looking for anything gourmet. The goat's cheese, roasted eggplant and smoked Goanna's testicles type Pizzas don't do it for me. Just tell me they do a good Supreme or Pepperoni or Capriciossa and I'll sleep better tonight.

Someone? Anyone?

Jim.

I think he might need both of us to give him a hug wolfie. Domino's is a bit el averageo, just like a pizza hut or a pizza haven. Cheap yes and ok to eat,but real pizza comes from the local one with no big name.

I agree, Rhiannan works at Pizza Haven up at Blackwood. Sometimes when she comes home Tracy & I have eaten a Little Ceasers.( small operation ) at Blackwood.

Now, here's the Rub.........

We can get Pizza's from Rhiannan for around $4.00

Or we buy a REAL pizza for around $8.00

She reckons we're traitors!

Mate, ya just can't argue with taste buds............ that's what they're for!!

Cheers

I have found that the Domino box (... with the dots) ... is the tastiest part.

sorry jimbo.
first off all our deepest sympathys for the passing of your friend.
you will get over it in time as they say time heals all wounds.
but as you and most people(who wont say)you will never get over the passing.
even if dominos did make a better pizza you will always be comparing it the other place(i with held there name in case it upsets you)
people will say its time to move on but you cant at the moment and probly never will.
all i can say at the moment wich you might not want to hear as your friend passed so recently is give pizza away.yes GIVE PIZZA AWAY.sorry for shouting but i think you need to hear it load and clear.
theres always chineese food.i know it dosnt compare to pizza .
have you ever heard any one say.
have you got room in that cab for a slab of beer and some fried rice and short soup?no its always the beer and pizza.
just think about it man just clear your head and think about it.
cheers jimbo and the crying will stop believe me
15 years ago(this is so hard to say)my favourite hot bread shop(sorry wiping tears)was taken over bye another company and there sausage rolls were not the same.
its only been the last year or so i was able to eat another sausage roll but hay i got over it.
so sit back for a couple of nights with some fine beer and perhaps even some home cooked food.
well thats all i can really so for know as i know your still hurting.
and ps dominos make a crap pizza

Jimbo,
Sorry to add to the sad day, but Domino's cheese is CRAP! And that IS something I know about, all frozen pre shredded stuff, not made with any care, just down to a price.

My son used to work at one of those places and he wouldn't eat them and would only let us if he personally made them for us.

Apart from 3000 calories per mouthful I liked them all.

i agree with Russell,
My son got a job there once, after the first night in the kitchen, he would NEVER allow us to order one again. Yes he did tell us what they got up too, but i dont think its for me to post here, not every shop is as dirty as this one was i recon......

Besides, I found me a great local Italian pizza shop now and i cant find better.

Mate console yourself, and save teh tears, I read today that Fosters are selling their VB brand to Queenslands XXXX, and the Fosters brewery in Melb will be converted to making XXXX.

What can you say but XXXX!!

The best pizza I get a hold of is the one I get when I travel to a nice remote part of the bush make the dough and my own topping and throw it in my camp oven.
