Dominic's Pizza, New Hampshire Avenue in Colesville
Posted 26 March 2009 - 10:59 AM
Dominic's has been around forever, in various guises. Thirty years ago it was called Gus's, and before that it was called Valencia. Despite a couple ownership changes over the decades, one thing has remained constant: the pizza oven. It's a good, hot, 1960s-era oven that gives off the loveliest of golden chars to the crust, and that crust is the only rational reason to get carryout from this dive.
Let's hold no illusions about Dominic's: Other than the oven, this place is nothing more than an outsized Sysco truck with Maryland Lottery TVs attached to it. And yet, there's something about the way they blend the toppings on a Medium Original ($13.95) that makes the whole thing come into harmonious bliss. Make sure to get a medium (which is rectangular) "original" (which comes with pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, green peppers, and onions). Don't nibble; fold the pieces in half and scarf them down with an ice cold Bud Lite.
You won't thank me, I promise - but it will at least make me appear flawed and human in your sympathetic eyes.
