|Dominos - Pizza fail!

Oh dear - I knew pizza was an art, but up till today's weekend treat, I've never realised just how badly they can go wrong.|
Take our tasty half and half pizza here...
We especially liked the juicy pepperoni that we'd ordered. Those beautiful tasty disks! Except we couldn't because there wasn't any on our pizza!
Maybe the order got mixed up over the phone? Fair point, it could have been, but we'd ordered online - so they got a nice itemised list!
A lot of creativity went into this pizza, check out mount-of-olives possibly to celebrate the Catholic period of Lent we're in, and let your eyes wander to nearby death-valley - where nothing can exist... not even the pizza tomato base.
Spot the pepperoni...
Here's a close up of death valley - where's the circling vultures you ask?
There aren't any - because there's nothing to eat in this dry, desolate and tomato sauce free place!
Ok, so at least we can make the most of what we do have here?
Well, we tried - we both like chicken, and it had made it onto the base despite traversing the mount of olives, and death valley.
On closer inspection though, it hadn't survived unscathed... it's trip had been harrowing...
It mustn't have had food or water for days, because it was dry, transparent and cardboard. Here's a close-up of it's battered body...
With that we gave up on our post-apocalyptic pizza. It was hard to do, we'd spent $40 / £20 on it, and got quite attached to its rugged landscape and the struggling fauna and flora.
My partner phoned Domino's and asked for a replacement.
The chef on the phone was nice and courteous, and our replacement arrived promptly...
It was if we'd walked through death valley and come upon an enchanted land, where rivers of pepperoni and sun-dried tomato sauce run, where chickeny bits frolic with the tandori bits in harmony.
Not everything was idyllic - we noticed the chickeny bits had followed us from death valley - they were a bit worse for ware, almost chicken flavoured chewing gum.
The mozzarella pieces where no where to be seen - but were guessing that gets added to the base now.
So - all in all, a good replacement, though it would have been nice to have a few dips "on the house" to comfort our now rumbling bellies.
