So, how will this play out in Brooklyn (the real one, not the Vegas one)?
Is the Pizza Tour about to add new stops? Doubtful. Will people here actually like it? Equally doubtful. We have our own ideas of what Brooklyn-style pizza should and shouldn’t be. Granted, a thin crust, dusted with cornmeal on the bottom, is an easy given. There’s lots of leeway as far as the toppings are concerned, from fancy house-made fennel sausage at Franny’s to fresh anchovies at Grimaldi’s. Some things, however, we hardly imagine having anything to do with Brooklyn pizza. Like this, for example: The creator of a true Brooklyn slice, unlike the guy who founded the chain that created this latest version, would probably not be paying for pro-life rallies in Michigan, a Catholics-only town in Florida, or filling GOP’s election coffers, where 100 percent of Domino’s political contributions flow.
CORRECTION, Nov. 2: Tom Monaghan, the founder of Domino’s Pizza and Ave Maria, Fla., no longer owns the company, as this article originally stated.
