Review: Domino's Reggae Reggae pizza

As you all might already know, I'm a big Domino's fan. So when I was asked to review their newly launched Reggae Reggae pizza, I didn't think twice. Gladly agreed to do so.

If you are a regular viewer of Saturday Kitchen Live, you would know Levi Roots who does gorgeous Caribbean cooking; and his new Reggae Reggae sauce is the main ingredient in this pizza. Its a very Caribbean inspired pizza with roast chicken, tomatoes, green peppers, pineapple and of course glorious mozzarella cheese. 
We went a notch further and ordered the large non-veg Reggae reggae pizza with a stuffed crust, which is also a new addition to their collection. The delivery, as usual, arrived on time (something I absolutely love about Domino's) and we dug into it with all gusto. First bite, and honestly I wasn't that impressed. I mean I don't usually prefer sweet/ spice combinations and maybe it was because I'm not a big BBQ sauce fan, that I didn't like the sauce too much. The addition of pineapple also was a bit of a bummer for me, but hey that's what Caribbean cooking is all about, so you need to go with the flow.

That said, after a few bites, the whole taste just grows on you. Prior to my observation, my husband thoroughly declared this pizza as more juicy and flavourful and he loved the sweet-spice flavours it imparted. But otherwise, the chicken was cooked to perfection and the cheese did its job really well. The stuffed crust was a bit of a let down and I don't think I'd order that again. But the next time if we pick up a Reggae Reggae pizza, I would do a thin crust and maybe try and omit the pineapple (just cos of preference, nothing else).
If you like BBQ flavours with a tint of sweetness, then this pizza is definitely for you. Vegetarians worry not, there is also a Vegetarian reggaie Reggae pizza with sweetcorn as an addition and can also be bought as one of Domino's oven baked subs. Go ahead and order and while you are at it, don't forget to check out their amazing pizza offers. We did ours as a 'Two for Tuesday' deal and paired it with an equally gorgeous 'Full House' Pizza.

With thanks to Dominos Pizza for gift vouchers to pick up the pizza

It's funny when you see foods that are supposed to be ethnic, but really aren't. Like those Italian chain restaurants with their 'italian' food that doesn't even resemble real italian food. Well, that kind of happened when I read the ingredients in this pizza. I'm from the Caribbean (Puerto Rico), and not one single ingredient, except for maybe the pineapple, reminds me of caribbean cooking.

A real caribbean inspired pizza would include plantains, sweet plantains, beans, rice, pork, etc. But then again, it wouldn't be delicious.

That pizza looks delicious though. Except the BBQ sauce sounds weird.

Not that big a fan of domino's, but this caribbean sounds exotic and quite nice..Even i detest pineapples in pizzas, spicy salads etc..Hawaiian chicken salads are big no-nos..

Love the name of this pizza. it brought a smile to my face:-) Surprised they paired it with BBQ sauce though and not a jerk sauce. Uhhmm no pineapples aren 't used a lot in Caribbean cooking. I do like pineapples on my pizza but on my Caribbean island we call that a Hawaiian pizza.

I love Domninos, mainly Tandoori Hot and Meateor.
I think the reggae reggae sauces are a disappointment. He must've made a lot of money tho. Got lucky thru Dragon's Den...
