Domino's New Recipe Pizza plus $20 gift card giveaway!

Domino's Pizza Domino's Pizza giveaway
I have always loved Domino's Pizza. I remember as a teen, when I used to buy it by the slice at their store in Albany, CA. It was actually "the" place to be - all of my friends and I were there almost daily, sitting out front, enjoying our pizza. It was new, it was hip, it was exciting! Over the years I have continued to enjoy Domino's Pizza, just the way it is, but now I am so excited to learn that they have a brand new recipe!

Yep - Domino's Pizza has listened to their customers - and made some big changes! The primary changes include:
• Crust – A garlic seasoned crust with parsley baked to a golden brown
• Sauce – Sweeter, bolder tomato sauce with a medley of herbs and a red pepper kick
• Cheese – Shredded cheese made with 100% real mozzarella and flavored with just a hint of provolone

Yum.  I will be trying this new recipe from Domino's just as soon as I can. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy the thicker crust that is seasoned, the tastier sauce and real cheese.  Great move guys!  My mouth is watering just thinking about this new pizza goodness.

I watched this video with fascination - I hope you will watch it too to learn about this exciting news!

Would you like even more good news? You do not have to wait much longer to try the Domino's new recipe pizza!  Domino’s new pizza will be in all U.S. stores beginning December 27. Count me in!

On a side note, my family has been ordering from Domino's for years - not only because we enjoy their pizza but because of their prices. I am just stunned at how expensive many pizza delivery places are, yet Domino's prices have always remained reasonable. This is especially important to us in these hard economic times.

Is your mouth watering yet? Go out and try the new Domino's Pizza!

I am sickened by something that has happened to a dear friend of mine.  Erin from Mrs. Cox's Slice o' Heaven and Snafood had something awful happen to her computer, all because of putting a button on her blog.  She has written a blog post on this, but I also wanted to share here, as the same thing could easily happen to one of us. Her computer is basically unusable now, but luckily she can use her husband's computer.  Please, please read her Blogger's Beware post.  Also, if you see any comment looking like this, do not communicate with these people:
"Hello - We bumped into your blog and really liked it YUM YUM.  We would like to add it to Petit Chef."
Then it goes on, asking that she link to them.  When she installed the button coding - like she would any other button code - her computer immediately started getting popups and she got over 50 viruses, worms, malware, etc. After she first told me about this, I found that this comment had also been left here on The Speedy Gourmet.  I deleted it immediately, but the same thing would have happened to me if I hadn't known her story. I also did a Google search and there is another similar sounding comment by someone else - it is also malware.  Please be very, very careful, and do your research before linking to someone from a comment! Please read Erin's entire post and tweet this (button is above).  Please also tell your blogging friends - this is bad! Photobucket
