I love Dominos Philly steak pizza. In fact, I’ve come to realize that’s all I ever really order. And as it tastes so good, it suddenly dawned on me it could be the sauce they use. But what is it exactly? With a little research and having contacted my local Dominos, here is what you want to know.
So, what sauce is on dominos Philly pizza? There is no sauce used on a Dominos Philly pizza. Instead, the pizza gets its flavor from a base of American and Provolone cheese slices. Provolone is quite a rich cheese, at least compared to Mozzarella, and this is the likely reason this pizza tastes like it has a sauce.
Quite surprising isn’t it.
In fact, chances are you’re a little disappointed at this stage.
I certainly was as I did want to perhaps buy some of this sauce to use at home.
Or perhaps even to make your own Dominos pizza from scratch to order for takeaway.
But what is actually on a Dominos Philly Pizza that gives it its taste?
And, what other sauces go well that you can try out instead?
Let’s get into it.
What Is On A Dominos Philly Pizza?
The Dominos Philly pizza is made up of the Dominos signature dough, layered American cheese, green peppers, onions, Philly steak, mushrooms, and then provolone cheese.
And it is the combination of cheeses that give this pizza its particular taste.
The American cheese is mild, salty, and creamy while the provolone cheese is rich and sharp but not too strong. It also has a somewhat sweet finish to it too.
Of course, then you have the other ingredients too.
Green peppers provide the aromatic flavor, onions provide a bit of everything (sweet, sharp, bitter) and the Philly steak provides that meaty, peppery flavor.
Throw it all together and you have a flavorsome pizza that simply does not need any sauce!
Besides, the typical Dominos tomato sauce would be too much!
Hence why they leave it off!
What Sauce Goes Well With Dominos Philly Pizza
Both the garlic and herb and the BBQ sauce dips from Dominos go very well with the Philly pizza.
Although, I have also found that Sweet Baby Rays, the award-winning barbecue sauce that you can get in several variations, also works particularly well.
Such variations to try include their Sweet N’Spicy Barbecue sauce, and their Honey Barbecue sauce.
In fact, I would recommend that you get this set from Amazon to try them all out.
Either on your Dominos Philly Pizza or any other pizza that you may proceed to order!
No sauce on a pizza?
Well, that is indeed the situation we find ourselves in with Dominos Philly Pizza.
But that doesn’t mean you cannot have sauce with it.
So do try out a few different options.
You may be pleasantly surprised at what it can bring to the meal.
But it doesn’t need any sauce, at least according to Dominos!
