Free Domino's Artisan Pizza - facebook acct required

I just had a wonderful Domino's Artisan pizza for dinner this evening because Domino's is giving them away through a Facebook promotion. The promotion will again take place tomorrow on 4/11 as well as on 4/12.

Instructions on how to get your free pizza:
To receive a free Artisan Pizza, visit the Domino's Facebook brand page (www.facebook.com/dominos) during the Giveaway Period and "like" the page. Then, click where indicated to receive a free Artisan pizza. Sponsor will give away a fixed number of free Artisan pizzas each day during the Giveaway Period as detailed in the chart below:

  • Date - # of Free Artisan Pizza's Given Away
  • Wednesday, April 11, 2012 - 15,000
  • Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 15,000
Please note that NO TIME is indicated. That means that the giveaway can start at any time during the day. Today, the giveaway started around 3PM and lasted for about 15 minutes (those thousands of free pizzas sure go fast!)

I would recommend, if you do get through in time, to select the order later option since you will then get a code in the email that you enter online when ordering your pizza.

I selected the Tuscan Salami and roasted vegetables. This pizza was described online as 
'Ideal proportions of salami, spinach, onions, roasted red peppers, banana peppers, and a dash of oregano, all over a garlic Parmesan sauce on an artisan-style crust."

I was initially hesitant to order the pizza since I really do not like garlic, but after one bite, the garlic flavor really was not noticeable and all you tasted were the veggies and the salami. The crust is very different from the usual Domino's crust, very light and buttery. The spinach is barely noticeable and I would have loved to have seen more of it. The onions and banana peppers I definitely tasted, but there were not enough of them on the piza either.

Overall, the pizza was good, I definitely liked the flavor, but the toppings were sparse. Looking at online reviews posted to the Domino's website, this seems to be a general point of criticism and I could not agree more. 
The regular price for an Artisan pizza is $7.99, not too pricey and it will feed two people. But the toppings should be increased, a little bit more spinach or peppers cannot cost that much and increased toppings will improve the flavor.
