If you’re a fan of Domino’s thin crust pizza, you might be surprised to discover how well it’s made.
In a viral TikTok, Domino’s employee @theofficalshyan reveals the use of dough the pizza chain uses for its large thin crust pies.
Text overlay, “Newbies will make a thin large pizza”, accompanied by @theofficalshyan sprinkling a heap of cornstarch (the yellow thing at the bottom of a Domino pizza helps the dough not stick to the surface) on top. prepare table and throw a big ball upwards.
@theofficalshyan start flattening the dough by hand and then the word “Wrong!!” appears on the screen in red text.
“It’s prepackaged!!!!,” she said, pulling out a large flat plate.
“So it’s a tortilla?” one commenter asked.
The video has more than 2 million views on TikTok and hundreds of comments.
The top comment on the post, with at least 11,600 likes, wrote, “This feels illegal to know.”
This seems to be a common practice among the major pizza chains. A worker believed to be Papa John’s said they do the same thing at their chain. One commenter wrote: “Similar to Papa John’s y’all”. So did the workers apparently from Hungry Howie’s and Little Caesar’s.
An apparent Pizza Hut employee intervened to reveal another company secret. According to them, “the pizza hut is all frozen dough and they just oil the pan and let it prove.”
One in the comments explained that the prepackaged thin crust “bc it takes skill to make your own thin crust pizza out of a dough ball and most kids in dominos can’t do it.”
However, a former employee said in the comments that the dough is “freshly made” and “only machine pressed unless they changed it from 2018”
Daily Dot has reached out to @theofficalshyan via comment on TikTok and with Domino’s via email.
