Pizza Delivery--Which Ones Do You Like? Empty Pizza Delivery--Which Ones Do You Like?

Impressed with Adelitas.  Tried it a few months ago for first time.  It's a true NY style....a foldable slice!  Limited toppings, but options suit us (pepperoni base, then we add to that).  For delivery we call them around 4 and ask for the pizza at 6....usually timely but a bit tardy since high season kicked in (10 to 20 minutes late).  Discounts on delivery orders only, and only on certain days.  Bigger pie than Dominos.  
https://adelitabarandgrill.com/menu/meal-delivery-food-to-go/

Dominos , really enjoy their sarten crust (pan pizza) which is a nice dough-y semi-thick crust.   They used to have online promos on the sarten crust but haven't for some time.  Tried their currently featured pizza with masa Italiana for intro price of 169p for 1 topping; for an extra 40p you get up to 4 toppings. Very thin and larger than their standard pie.  We order online and never a hiccup (always well within their 30 minute guarantee), plus you accumulate points for a free pizza when ordering online.  https://www.dominos.com.mx/

Pizzeria Toscana on Ocampo iin Ajijic offers a bajillion pizzas with set toppings, some quite gourmet-ish.  Overall a good pizza with a good Italian crust.  Reasonable price, smaller pie.  We are only a few blocks from them so they get it here really fast.  https://www.facebook.com/Pizzeria-Toscana-591794167584109/

We have tried others around town; some of them get high marks from others, but left us unimpressed.

We are open-minded abou pizza, sometimes we're in the mood for a thin crust, sometimes we want a thicker one.

I stick with Domino's because it is the most consistent and arrives fast. However, if anyone ever comes across a shrimp and bacon pizza, please let me know. Used to love them at Don Pedro's in Sayulita.

La Estacion upstairs from Pancho’s. Sourdough. I have only had the Margarita but I love it with the fresh tomatoes. Haven’t tried the other toppings - roast beef on pizza? Traitte delivers.

If you go there, they have an elevator as the steps look treacherous.

Ferrett----Pizzeria Toscana has a shrimp pizza and also offers bacon as a topping on other pizzas...maybe he'd put one together for you?

I can try. It also has to have fresh basil leaves on it.

I like the pizza from La Estacion best also, but I eat it there. I should figure out how to use Traitte.

Here goes a debatable one:
We got the pepperoni pizza 4-pack from Costco at Pancho's last week. One of those feeds 2 and leaves one or two slices. The pepperoni was good, but next time we would prefer the plain cheese and would add our own extras. Good cheese and nice crust.

We liked Purple Garlic until Christmas when we got a propane fired pizza oven. We're still experimenting to find our favorite recipes.

Cooks a ten inch pizza in 60 seconds.
Pizza your way - bacon, anchovies, pepperoni, sausage, basil, olives ....
Entertains guests.
Inexpensive ingredients. 000 grind flour at 11% protein is readily available.
The oven should pay for itself easily within a year based on a couple of pizzas a week.
Compact - sits beside the BBQ.

Sorry to hijack the thread but I thought some readers would be interested.

Pizza is one of very few meals for which I prefer delivery.  

I've looked at Traitte a few times but never pulled the trigger.  It seems to have some sort of logarithm tied to the availability of their drivers.  I don't think you can pre-order.  You just have to roll the dice and risk a longer delivery time than expected if their drivers are tied up, which is likely true at prime meal times.  

Anyone with experience with Traitte?? Thumbs up or down? Also, how do tips work with Traitte--I want to tip the eatery workers....can I or will Traitte take all the $$$ above the meal price?

I only used Traitte once for the pizza. First time I used the app which is a little clunky but when I was more precise with my address (between streets X and Y which pinpointed my house) the driver was actually earlier by about 10 minutes. I tipped him but there was a tip on the grand total if I remember correctly.

I’m in Riberas so he didn’t have to come that far and this was lunchtime not dinner.

Received a grande pizza from Dominos today. It was at least 45 minutes and cold when delivered. The box was crushed and when I opened part of topping came off on lid. Charge was 433 pesos for pizza, order of papa's, and bottle of pepsi. With tip cost 500 pesos. Don't think I will be using them anymore. Noticed there were other pizza boxes in carriers box so they must be doing a route delivery to several people.

I use either Domino's or M&J Pizza. I stopped using M&J for a while as their deliveries were arriving burnt and crushed. Never had a problem with Domino's. I think rafterbr's issue was an anomaly.

Had the worst pizza I have ever had delivered yesterday. The only pizza that the cardboard box was easier to cut than the crust. I agree with Bob I am going back to Dominos even if the pie is smaller.

We ordered the Pizza by telephone. I saw the crushed box but didn't realize the box top was in the pizza or that the pizza was cold until delivery person was already gone. There was a plastic insert in the pizza to keep lid off pizza but it was crushed too. As I said, I saw other pizza boxes in the delivery person's box so he was delivering to other people as well as us. This gave me the thought, they had delayed delivering our pizza until they had other orders.

About 5 years ago I had a Dominos pizza arrive 50 minutes late (holiday weekend). I asked the deliverer if that made it free. He phoned his supervisor who said, No Charge. I gave the scooter guy the same tip as always. Not sure if 30 minute timeframe applies to phone orders (I always order online).

fyi, 30 minute guarantee doesn't apply if raining, per website.

I have only had one bad delivery from Dominos in 11 years. It was a Sunday and I got to the gate in La Huerta just as he was pulling up. I forgot my key to the door in the gate. Instead of sliding the pizza under the gate, He turned it on its side and passed it to me through the upright bars. I was quick to flip it back the other way and only lost some of the toppings. Shocked

I have not yet had a bad experience with Dominos. It's certainly not the best pizza in the world but one of the better ones around here IMO. Very consistant, I always order online and it always arrives before 30 minutes.

Last night did online order with Dominos (which is how I always order).  Normally it arrives 25 to 30 minutes, like clockwork.  

After 40 minutes I called local store--he tells me my pizza is there, at the store!  Says he might be able to get it to me in 20-30 minutes (didn't sound overly confidant).  When I asked what the problem was, he said he can't get employees.  

Told him to keep the pizza. Mostly annoyed they didn't reach out to me after I ordered (they have our phone and email).

I called Dominos last tuesday for delivery of two pizzas, they told me we would have to pick, as had no one to deliver so we called Membillos which is 2 blocks up street from my Casa, surprisingly good pizza and delivered on time piping hot...no more Dominos for us...

After Dominos failed us, we got one delivered from Adelitas. They have changed their crust from super thin to almost a sarten (pan) crust. Still a good pizza. Smaller diameter than before, but their large is equal in size to a Dominos large.

Delivery was timely. fyi, they do not deliver on Wednesdays (driver's day off).

Will give Membrillos a try next time.

I called the local Dominos and asked if their delivery was back to the 30 minute standard.  They said no, they were running 45 to 55 minutes mas o menos; given my last experience with them, I feared it would be mas.

I messaged Membrillos via WhatsApp, after an hour passed, no answer.

I called La Toscana on Ocampo in Ajijic and 2 pizzas arrived in 35 minutes, piping hot.  They are open daily Tues-Sun, 12 to 8.

They have an amazing selection of pizzas (and pastas).  Size-wise they are mediums, with prices averaging around 135p.

Here are pizza offerings,
