People may be same in all countries. But our research has found that Domino’s isn’t. The pizza restaurant chain spans across 83 countries apart from the United States, including overseas territories like Cayman Islands, and small states like Kosovo. But not all of them are eating the same Domino’s Pizza that you are.
Domino’s launches pizza ranges and flavors for most countries it enters. Especially if the country has only recently been exposed to modern lifestyle, Domino’s allures it with traditional flavored pizzas. Here’s a complete list of the different pizza flavors that every pizza lover must know.
Normally, these pizzas are the company’s take on an authentic dish, and are priced somewhere closer to that dish. This attracts locals towards the pizzeria and helps the company form a better hold in the market.
Domino’s also carries out other initiatives to strengthen its market position in a new country. Apart from localizing its flavors, it opens branches in popular malls, runs ads, and many times forms coupon partners that give discounts on Domino’s Pizza. The discounts help locals save some bucks every time they place a Domino’s order.
One of the largest fast food enterprises in the world today, Domino’s Pizza was established in 1960 by American brothers Tom and James Monaghan from Michigan. With about 9,000 locations in 60 countries, the company offers pizzas that appeals to a wide range of palates while also incorporating regional cuisines. Here are a few of the more unique pizza flavors that can be found in Domino’s Pizza worldwide.
Tuna Delight – If you love seafood, you’d know that tuna is famous in Indonesia, and Indonesian Tuna is famous in the world. Why? Because this country is the largest producer of tuna. It produces over 100,000 tons of tuna in a year, that too using one-by-one catch methodologies. Meaning, fish are caught one at a time using poles and lines, instead of longline nets. This makes sure that fishing is sustainable and not exhaustive.
Over the years, Indonesia has developed a number of dishes around this particular fish that have garnered fame internationally. These include Tuna Pindang (Indonesian Tuna Stew), Nasi Goreng Tuna (Indonesian Tuna Fried Rice), Ikan Bumbu Rujak (Spice-Braised Tuna), and a number of soups, sauces, and salads.
By launching a Tuna Delight pizza, Domino’s gives a nod to the country’s love for this ingredient. The pizza has hot spicy tuna, paired with mayonnaise, onion, red pepper, parsley, and mozzarella.
Ayam Bakar – Forget about tomato and simple cheese. A spicy coconut cream sauce with lemongrass and garlic forms the creamy basis of this Indonesian pizza. Ayam baker (chicken roasted over charcoal), onion, parsley, and mozzarella are sprinkled on top.
2. South Korea
Potato Multigrain – South Korea’s Potato Multigrain is loaded with bacon, onion, and mushroom, making it the ideal pizza if you’re seeking carbohydrates.
Wagyu & Bistecca – This combines five cheeses with wafer-thin slices of Australian Wagyu crumble and Italian roast beef known as “Bistecca.” After having this enormous meal, it is probably advisable to stick to salad for the remainder of the day.
Vegan Avocado Veg – Seeing the increasing number of vegans in Australia, it makes complete sense that Domino’s launched a vegan range and a vegetarian plant-based range of pizzas in the country. In fact, it has also launched a ‘Gluten Free’ range where you can turn any of your favorite pizzas into a gluten-free pizza.
Out of these, what we are most interested in is the Avocado Veg pizza from the Vegan range. This vibrant, flamboyant pizza is full of interesting flavors that will burst in your mouth. Starting with Australia’s premium avocado produce, we also have sweet cherry peppers, mushrooms, red onions, capsicum & olives, and of course, some delectable vegan cheese.
Sounds interesting, right? I would say that the complete vegan pizza range by Domino’s is interesting. There are ingredients like plant-based beef, Kalamata olives, spring onions, and creamy sauces peppered across the entire range.
Garlic Prawn – Australians love their prawns. Thanks to the warm waters in the northern parts of Australia, especially in Queensland, there is a year-round supply of prawns in the country. It is natural, thus, that the Aussies are very particular about the flavors that go with prawns and those that don’t.
Prawns, especially Tiger Prawns and Banana Prawns, are usually found stir-fried in Australian dishes. Mostly, they also have some sort of herbs to go with them. These could be basil, coriander, oregano or other Asian herbs. As for flavors, they like to add ginger, garlic, and chili.
In its Garlic Prawn Pizza, Domino’s has made a microcosm of all the things Australians love. There is prawn, there is tomato, there is baby spinach and oregano; and of course, there is a zesty garlic sauce base.
Fire Breather – like the heat? Australia’s Fire Breather is a super-spicy mix of pork and fennel sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, fresh tomato and red onion, all topped with chili flakes and jalapenos for an extra kick.
Achari Do Pyaza – If it is the heart of Indians that Domino’s wanted, then its launch of the Achari Do Pyaza Pizza made sure it got it. For centuries, the Indian Subcontinent has been obsessed with Do Pyaza dishes. From Chicken Do-Pyaza, Mutton Do-Pyaza, and Egg Do-Pyaza, to a number of vegetarian variants, the country sure likes this dish.
The term Do Pyaza is a Persian word that means ‘two onions’. But contrary to popular belief, adding two onions to a dish does not make it Do Pyaza. Instead, as food columnist Anoothi Vishal puts is, “It is meat (or any base) cooked with double the amount of onions”.
Usually, a Do Pyaza dish has a sour agent like raw mangoes or lemon juice to complement the onion flavor. Inspired by this, Domino’s has taken the tangy flavors of Indian pickles and infused it with its Achari Do Pyaza Pizza.
Burger Pizza- Domino’s Pizza in India introduced the mighty Burger Pizza in 2016 with the slogan “Looks like a burger, with the goodness of a pizza.” The veggie options include cheese and tomato, while the meat varieties come with chicken, sausage, and jalapenos fillings. Unfortunately, there are currently no plans to make them available outside of India.
South Zesty Veggie – Domino’s South Zesty Veggie in India has a thick layer of cheese coated with chilies, bell peppers, and bananas. Using bananas makes more savory meals and is quite popular in Southern India. Perhaps predictably, it hasn’t been introduced any place else.
Cheesy Boloroni – Although it is no longer available, Domino’s Pizza in India started offering the Cheesey Boloroni in 2012. It was a massive dish of macaroni pasta covered in a thick layer of pizza cheese, vegetarian bolognese sauce, and liquid cheese with a barbecue flavor. The word “boloroni” is a combination of “macaroni” and “bolognese.”
Swahili Chicken – While chicken is loved worldwide, there is something about chicken that’s cooked Swahili-style. Ask a Kenyan and you’ll know why a Swahili chicken dish is so different from your regular run-of-the-mill chicken dish.
A good Swahili chicken recipe has the perfect blend of fresh herbs, spices, sauces, and coconut milk. Kenyans know that. And from what it looks like, Domino’s does too. Its special Swahili Chicken Pizza has pineapples, sweet corn, red chilli, and of course, some delicious Swahili chicken.
Other Kenya-favorites include Regina Pizza (with beef ham & mushrooms), and Pepperoni Passion (with beef pepperoni and mozzarella cheese).
Vegie Quattro – Malaysia has something that the rest of us don’t. Sure, it has Mount Kinabalu, the city of Kuala Lumpur, and Batu Caves. But it also has Domino’s first-of-its-kind ‘Quattro’ Pizza.
The Quattro Pizza range was launched in Malaysia in the latter half of 2019. It includes a number of pizzas that offer ‘4 flavors in 1 experience’. The answer to the million-dollar question of ‘what to eat’, a Quattro pizza has four crowd-favorite toppings on four separate portions of the pizza.
The range includes Signature Quattro Beef Pizza (with Beef Pepperoni, Aloha Chicken, Prawn Sensation, and Simply Cheese), and Signature Quattro Chicken Pizza (with Chicken Pepperoni, Aloha Chicken, Prawn Sensation, and Simply Cheese). But what we are especially interested in is the Vegie Quattro. This pizza has four scrumptious vegetable flavors. On one quarter is crunchy spinach, on other are succulent olives. The other two quarters have juicy tomatoes and zesty pineapples. How delightful is that?
Sambal Surf & Turf – Malaysian food is renowned for its blending of tastes, and this hot feast offers a wide variety to sample. Sambal, a typical fiery sauce mixed with chili peppers, shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, shallot, and vinegar, is slathered all over this surf ‘n’ turf pizza. Spicy prawns, shredded chicken, green peppers, and pineapple are among the toppings.
Almond Citrus Seafood – Who would have guessed that combining fish, fruit, and almonds would work on a pizza?). A standard on Domino’s Vietnamese menu, the Almond Citrus Seafood pizza features shrimp, scallops, orange sauce, almonds, red pepper, mozzarella, cheddar, and coriander.
Saigon Supreme – Quail eggs are abundant on this Vietnamese staple, which is regarded as a delicacy in certain areas of the world. Additionally, mozzarella, cheddar, onion, hot sauce, mayonnaise, dry shrimp, and green onion are spread on top of the Saigon Supreme.
Jane Pork Octopus Burning Pizza – The Domino’s Pizza menu in Taiwan offers a variety of regional cuisines that could appear exceedingly odd elsewhere in the globe. Along with the Kimchi pizza, which is topped with fiery pickles and pork, you can get the Jane Pork Octopus Burning Pizza here, which also has peppers and Japanese honey sauce.
Okonomiyaki Pizza -This okonomiyaki pizza, based on the Japanese savory pancake, was also offered by Domino’s Pizza in Taiwan. This was made out of stir-fried noodles, fish flakes, seaweed powder, and sweet Japanese mayo.
Octopus, Avocado, and Honeyed Ham – In terms of strange new dishes, it appears that the wilder the better is the norm. Half of this unique pizza’s four cheeses are avocado and octopus, while the other half is honeyed ham and Gouda.
Lotta Chocca – When Domino’s Pizza introduced the Lotta-Chocca Pizza in June 2017, chocolate lovers in the UK were ecstatic. Melted milk chocolate and traditional pizza dough are used to create the 6-inch delicious delicacy. Delicious.
Taco Treasure – Why choose between tacos and pizza when you can have both? Crunchy tortilla chips, cheese, meat, sweetcorn, and peppers make up Norway’s Taco Treasure. a true stomach-buster.
Bavarian – A reference to German cuisine, the Russian Bavarian is topped with salami, mozzarella cheese, and pickled cucumbers. Who would dare object?
Street Kebab – The toppings for the Street Kebab in France include mozzarella, kebab meat, tomatoes, onions, and kebab sauce. It is another fast food hybrid.
Dutchman – Hollandaise sauce, tomatoes, broccoli, and prosciutto cotto are the toppings of the Dutchman, a Domino’s Pizza specialty available in Germany.
PS I Love You – While Sweden’s PS I Love You pizza doesn’t have the most unique toppings in the world—just cheese, pepperoni, and mushrooms—it does have a fantastic moniker that must make for some very entertaining phone calls.
Bourbon-Style Cremozza – Pizza with alcohol? Actually, no. The Bourbon-Style Cremozza pizza from Gibraltar is really alcohol-free. But the booze is added to give it a flavor that will complement the chicken, bacon, mozzarella, and onion topping.
Domino’s Pies -You’ll adore these if you’re into the sweet side. Introduced in 2016, Domino’s Pies have four sweet fillings consisting of poppy seed (shown), cherry with cinnamon, apple, and cottage cheese with vanilla and apricot.
American Cheese Burger – The American cheeseburger is one of the most well-known dishes in the world, thus it was only a matter of time before it was used as a pizza topping. This powerful combination is available for purchase in Guam and contains mozzarella, tomato sauce, meat, bacon, mustard, tomato, and onion. Why not adore it?
19. North Cyprus
Adalim – Dried basil may be a common addition to pizzas, but what about dried mint? This Cypriot vegetable favorite includes the herb in addition to mozzarella, halloumi, black olive, and tomato.
Tropical Pizza – Available only in Nigeria, is perhaps one of Domino’s Pizza’s more unique creations. It is topped with sliced banana, Philly steak, mushrooms, and red chilies. Wanna try?
21. New Zealand
Creamy Chicken Carbonara -The super-creamy pizza is topped with chicken, bacon, red onion, mushroom, and garlic crème fraiche, along with spring onion and Parmesan.
Hypnotica Pizza – This is a captivating combination of sauerkraut with crème fraîche, mozzarella cheese, baby spinach, pepperoni, smoky bacon, sirloin, onions, and a drizzle of BBQ sauce.
