Domino's Pizza made the grand gesture to change its 50-year-old recipe after complaints that its pies were tasting like "cardboard." So the restaurant chain went back to the drawing board to introduce a new crust bathed in garlic butter, fresher mozzarella, and a sauce with a spicier zest. They achieved that slightly tastier crust, but that wasn't the problem with Dominos in the first place. Unfortunately, it still uses the same flaccid vegetables and unsavory meat it always has for toppings (don't even ask me what the sausage looks like). Time to hit the "reset" button yet again.
