Pizza home delivery - how long does it take?

Postby slmkhoo » Thu May 29, 2014 2:04 pm

This is my first time ordering pizza home delivery. Can I just check - how far in advance should I order? I'm planning to order from Canadian 2-for-1 pizza. If I want it delivered around 6.30pm, should I allow more time? Thanks!

2 hours should be more than sufficient for non peak days.

2 hours? That's long unless peak period. When I order from domino's or rocky's, it's normally an hour.

i think 1 hr is more than sufficient.

I never have to wait so long for delivery.

You could order online for Dominos pizza up to one day in advance.

When I called to book, they said allow 1 hr, but it arrived in 40 mins! So the pizzas had to sit in my oven until my daughters got back from school. It was good to have done it once, but not sure we'll do it often. Too much MSG! I'd rather eat pizzas at lunch time.

The pizzas have msg? Which part? The toppings? I wonder why they would need to add msg as most pizza toppings are quite salty already, with the pepperoni, ham, cheeses...

I guess a lot of the ingredients contain msg? Tomato sauce, salted meats, cheese etc would probably have MSG, I think, even if there is no extra MSG added. Or maybe it's just a lot of salt. We just know that we can feel it in our throats after eating the pizzas, similar to after a Chinese restaurant meal. My family doesn't eat outside food much at night, so we feel it more, I suppose. Eating it earlier in the day give us more time to drink lots of water and dilute it.

Dominos is usually on the dot not much earlier. If they are late by 15 min or more, you'll be given a voucher for a free pizza.

The pizzas of my last order came alittle burnt and after checking on my feedback, they offered to deliver the pizzas foc immediately or in the next order.

Service is pretty decent compared to Pizza Hut or Canadian pizza IMO.
