Late last year, Domino's introduced the $50 Wagyu Duet in a apparent bid to take on upmarket pizza chain Crust. It comprised a double serve of rectangular pizza topped with an assortment of premium ingredients including wagyu rib fillet, air-dried wagyu bresaola, sliced wagyu sausage and truffle hollandaise. Now the pizzas are back for a (slightly) cheaper asking price.
The Domino's 'World Class Wagyu' range consist of the Wagyu 3 Ways (wagyu rib fillet, air-dried wagyu bresaola, sliced wagyu sausage, smoked rasher bacon, ground beef, mozzarella on a BBQ base, finished with a drizzle of tomato capsicum sauce) and the Wagyu & Truffle Hollandaise (wagyu rib fillet, camembert slices, cherry tomatoes, sliced red onion, topped with mozzarella and a drizzle of truffle hollandaise). They have an energy count of 7140kJ and 6180kJ, respectively.
The wagyu used on the pizzas has a marble score of '6+' (wagyu beef can score between 4 and 12). Domino’s reckons that two World Class Wagyu pizzas is enough to feed over four people, although it neglected to mention how many slices each person gets.
The pizzas were originally only available paired in a specially designed box, but you can now order them individually for $19.95 each. Curiously, the price is the same whether you pick them up in store or get them home delivered.
We feel its worth mentioning that most of the ingredients on these premium pizzas are actually from the Chef's Best range; camembert cheese, cherry tomatoes, red onion, smoked rasher bacon, ground beef and tomato capsicum sauce can all be added to any pizza. So the only deluxe topping you're really getting is the wagyu beef.
The Domino's World Class Wagyu range will be available for a limited time only.
