  • Joe: From calorie count to portion sizes,

  • we wanted to find out all the differences

  • between Domino's in India and the US.

  • This is "Food Wars."

  • Here in India, our Domino's pizzas come in three sizes.

  • Our Domino's pizza comes in four sizes.

  • Nikhil: The small, 8 inches with four slices.

  • Joe: The small, 10-inch, which is six slices.

  • The medium, 10 inches with six slices.

  • Joe: The medium, 12 inches, which is eight slices.

  • And the large, 12 inches with eight slices.

  • Joe: The large, 14-inch, which is,

  • I don't know, four, eight, nine,

  • 16 slices, 'cause I don't know why they cut it this way.

  • I didn't ask them to, so.

  • And the extra large,

  • 16 inches, or six slices.

  • Unfortunately, our large margherita pizza

  • only comes in one crust option, which is the hand-tossed.

  • You don't get it in pan

  • or in cheese burst or any other kind.

  • So I am going to weigh one slice

  • of large margherita hand-tossed pizza

  • to see how much it weighs.

  • 93 grams.

  • And I will weigh a slice of our hand-tossed

  • and our pan to compare the weight.

  • Please note that our mediums

  • are the same size as their larges.

  • That's pretty insane.

  • Yeah, I'm not surprised by that at all, buddy.

  • Hand-tossed.

  • One random slice is

  • 79 grams.

  • A slice of pan,

  • same surface size, we'll say,

  • but obviously a lot thicker,

  • like, way, I mean, come on.

  • Ha!

  • 139 grams.

  • So that's a little less than double.

  • This is a large Domino's margherita pizza.

  • It's also known as a plain or cheese in the US.

  • This is 12 inches long.

  • It costs 419 rupees, or $5.55

  • at current conversion rates.

  • So the total surface area of this pizza

  • is 729.7 centimeters squared,

  • which means it costs 0.76 cents

  • per square centimeter of this pizza.

  • Take our large 14-inch pizza,

  • which is $13.99, or 1,056 Indian rupee,

  • with an area of 993.1 squared centimeters.

  • Just like these slices are squared.

  • I totally did that on purpose.

  • That's 1.4 cents per square centimeter.

  • That means the Indian pizza is 45% cheaper

  • than the American version.

  • This is everything you'll get on a menu at Domino's India

  • that you will not get in America.

  • Little skyscrapers.

  • You guys have actual skyscrapers.

  • We have Domino's-pizza-box skyscrapers.

  • Here's everything at the US Domino's

  • you can't get in India.

  • We have five --

  • that's 10.

  • We have five different crust options.

  • We have pan.

  • Then you have wheat thin crust,

  • cheese burst.

  • Is there supposed to be cheese in here?

  • Oh!

  • There is cheese in here, for sure.

  • Then we have hand-tossed,

  • and we have something called new hand-tossed.

  • Maybe somebody else's hands were used to make this one.

  • In the US, our Domino's has five crust options.

  • This one right here, gluten-free.

  • But you can only get that as a small pizza.

  • Next, over here, hand-tossed.

  • Over here, the much thicker pan.

  • That's medium only.

  • This guy in the middle here is the crunchy thin,

  • which I just found out five seconds ago

  • they also cut in squares.

  • Didn't know that.

  • Last and certainly not least, this is the Brooklyn style.

  • They're thin slices, but you can only get this

  • as the large and the extra large.

  • Hell yeah, that looks so good.

  • Just by looking at them,

  • I can tell that the hand-tossed is slightly thinner.

  • Mm.

  • New hand-tossed.

  • It's a little firmer as a crust.

  • I would opt for the regular hand-tossed pizza.

  • Finally, just for fun,

  • the cheese burst.

  • That is such a guilty pleasure.

  • So, I thought this was cheese burst

  • in the sense that just the outer ring of crust had cheese.

  • The entire pizza base is cheese burst.

  • All right, here is our range of vegetarian pizzas.

  • Here in India, to keep with the religious sentiments

  • of both Hindus and Muslims,

  • who are a majority in our country,

  • we avoid using beef and pork in most fast-food restaurants.

  • But what that means is that we get

  • a lot of delicious vegetarian options.

  • No. 1, Mexican Green Wave.

  • I will say the colors on this pizza

  • definitely look like the Mexican flag.

  • Jalapeños, some tomatoes, onion, cheese.

  • Next up, we have veggie paradise.

  • Wow.

  • Imagine calling an entire pizza a paradise.

  • Red peppers, capsicum, olives, corn, and cheese.

  • You guys in the comments, let me know,

  • does this look like paradise to you?

  • I'm not in the comments, but I'll tell you right now,

  • it absolutely does not.

  • It's funny. Their veggie paradise

  • is my pizza hell.

  • Next up, deluxe veggie.

  • Mushrooms, paneer, corn, capsicum, and onion.

  • I typically don't like when there's too much on my pizza,

  • but the things here really complement each other.

  • Pretty good. But, again, there's so much going on in this.

  • It's truly a deluxe pizza.

  • Next up, we have Peppy Paneer. How fun!

  • Red peppers, capsicum, and paneer.

  • If you are wondering what paneer is,

  • it's basically cottage cheese,

  • and we love our paneer.

  • OK, next up we have paneer makhani.

  • If you're wondering what makhani means,

  • it's a paneer version of butter chicken.

  • If you're wondering what butter chicken is,

  • friend, you need a culinary education.

  • Hm.

  • Would I ever want paneer makhani on a pizza?

  • Maybe not. I don't like it.

  • Next up, we have cheese and corn.

  • It's got cheese, it's got corn.

  • And finally, Indi paneer tandoori pizza.

  • Tandoor is basically an oven we use here.

  • It's cylindrical. We use wood fire and coal in it

  • to sort of give the meat and bread some char to it.

  • And Indi, well, this pizza has just not hit mainstream yet.

  • Oh, that is spicy and a half.

  • If you can't take heat, avoid this one.

  • My favorite so far,

  • none of them. I will order a non-veg pizza.

  • Wow, India has a lot more vegetarian options

  • than we do, and good for them.

  • I personally don't want any of that.

  • We do have two of our own exclusive veggie options.

  • This here is the Pacific veggie.

  • And over here we have the spinach and feta.

  • I don't want to try either of these.

  • Do I have to?

  • It's wasting valuable stomach space, you know?

  • Like, it's only so big.

  • All this awesome Domino's food here,

  • you think I want any of this in my stomach? Who cares?

  • All right, fine.

  • What's it got, like, feta cheese on it?

  • This isn't so bad.

  • Nonvegetarian pizzas.

  • No. 1, we have the pepper barbecue.

  • Doesn't look like it has any vegetables,

  • just a bunch of chicken pieces

  • and with a nice smoky barbecue flavor.

  • But you can choose a pepper barbecue chicken with onion.

  • That is a great combination.

  • Chicken sausage. Quite sausage-y, for sure.
