It’s time for dinner and you have a lot of hungry mouths to feed, and you don’t feel like cooking. What do you do?
Well, if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, why not test your squad’s eating abilities against Donatello’s Super Dominator?
The 28-inch, $26.99 creation by owner Bob Boisvert originally began as a bit of a joke.
“We decided to come up with a large pizza that was bigger than pretty much anyone had around here,” he said.
First there was the Dominator, a 24-inch pie, but it wasn’t quite big enough. So Boisvert added 4 inches – the biggest he can make unless he decides to get a larger oven.
In the beginning, you could only get the Super Dominator for dine-in. It took about a year after its creation to find someone who made a box big enough to hold it (and it’s actually two separate pieces). Donatello’s even has a custom-made delivery bag that will fit it.
Boisvert can always tell when someone is getting a Super Dominator for the first time.
“People will push back in their seat, pull out their phone and take a picture,” he said.
It will fit in most trunks, and through most standard door frames. There was one time, though, when a pair held it on the roof of a truck to get it home.
“That’s the funniest we’ve seen,” he said. “People don’t always understand just how big it is.”
We took a look at how it’s made, so when you decide to order one, you’ll know how it’s done.
