Harry Kersh:From calorie count to serving size, we wanted to find out all the differences between Domino's Pizza in the UK and the US. This is a food fight.

(Video) US vs UK Portion Size Differences (KFC, McDonald's, Burger King) | Food Wars

This is the smallest pizza you can get in the UK. It is called an individual and is 7 inches in diameter.

Joe Avella:Our smallest is, believe it or not, so small. Here it is, and it's 10 inches in diameter.

Torment:The next size up is small, measuring 9.5 inches.

Jose:The closest to the US size is our medium, which measures 12 inches.

Torment:That's 11.5 inches.

Jose:O? I am hungry. Hey, I got a piece. I am hungry. This pizza smells so good. I skipped breakfast. Next pizza. Next up for the US is our Large, which has a 14-inch diameter. damn yeah And the way they cut your big pizza, Harry? It's ridiculous. To hear.

And not to be outdone, the American has another size, the extra large. diameter, 16 inches. Brother! Look at the size of this thing.

Torment:Now, a 2.5-inch difference might not seem like a lot, but when you factor in the surface area, it's actually 58 square inches wider than the UK's largest pizza, accounting for almost a third of the increase.

Jose:Am I correct? Is that supposed to be six slices? There are six disks. This cannot be true. Six slices for an extra-large pizza? Look at the size of those discs!

In the United States, Domino's extra-large pizza costs $13.99. Hm. This... circle... It's 201 square inches, which is about 7 cents per inch. Beautiful.

Torment:Now surprisingly for $13.99 you can only get a small UK pizza. A small pizza is 9.5 inches wide for an area of ​​71 square inches. Now, if you divide the $13.69 price by 71, you'll find that you're actually paying 19 cents per square inch.

Ultimately, this means that if you pop into a Domino's in the US and UK for $13.99, you'll get more than double the return of the pizza in the US store. This is what a great British cheese looks like.

Jose:And this is what a large, well-sliced ​​Domino's cheese pizza looks like in America.

Torment:It is cut into 10 pieces and each slice contains 176 calories. This means that, in the UK, pizza has a total of 1,760 calories.

Jose:Instead of 10, we got 8 disks. That means each slice has about 280 calories, making the entire pizza 2,240 calories. And according to what they wrote to me, it's almost 480 calories more than the UK size.

Torment:But why is that exactly? Let's see if we can get a lead on the ingredients. Let's start with the foundation of all pizza, the dough. In the UK, dough is made with wheat flour, a premix of wheat and milk, rapeseed oil, water and yeast.

Jose:Yeah, but here in the US, our dough is made from... fortified flour, wheat... oh god, I hate reading this stuff. Fortified Flour, which is Wheat Flour, Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin, Riboflavin and Folic Acid, Water, Soybean Oil. And it contains less than 2% of the following: sugar, salt, buttermilk, maltodextrin, dextrose, dough improvers such as sodium stearoyl lactylate. I don't know. It's on the screen. You read it out loud. enzymes! Calcium sulfate, ascorbic acid, calcium phosphate, L-cysteine. Good for hangovers, I hear. yeast and cornmeal. Yes, very different. Much more chemicals. Who saw it coming? [laughter]

Torment:How about the cheese? Domino's in the UK simply refers to the cheese as mozzarella, and that's mostly because the ingredients are just that.

Jose:In the United States, Domino's cannot and must not call its cheese mozzarella. Instead, they refer to it as "pizza cheese". Thus, Domino's US "pizza cheese" has the following ingredients. Portion of Lean Mozzarella Cheese, OK, which is made with pasteurized milk, cultures, salt, enzymes, modified starch, cellulose, skimmed milk, whey protein concentrate, natural flavors and sodium proponate. prop-ion nat. propionate

Torment:Now let's take a look at the peppers. Most of the ingredients in US and UK peppers are quite similar. Both contain pork, salt, dextrose, spices, sodium nitrite, citric acid, flavorings and starter culture.

Jose:You know, the only difference is that our pepperoni contains beef. Also preservatives beutohydrolat, hydrolazinase and beautohalid blabbity blah. BHA and BHT. I can't pronounce them. they are bad [laughs]

Torment:It turns out that BHA and BHT are restricted in the European Union and cannot be added to foods like chili peppers. This could be because studies have shown that BHA can cause tumors in mice and is therefore considered carcinogenic in humans.

Jose:Great. I will die doing what I love. Eat banned chemicals. Hmm!

Torment:We reached out to Domino's to clarify the pepperoni situation. We got our information from the ingredients website. However, when we checked with them they told us their information was incorrect and have since updated it to say that the BHA and BHT have been removed from the peppers. I think this happened sometime in 2018. They couldn't say exactly when. But Joe, looks like you're okay after all. These are all items you can only find on the UK Domino's menu.

Jose:And here are all the things you can only get at a US Domino's.

Torment:Let's start with the pizza itself, so first we have the crust options. We can now get stuffed crust in the UK. But we opted for an Italian crust here. I apologize to the country of Italy for this. The Italian crust is basically the same dough, but thinner and therefore a little crispier. There are some ingredients you can only get on your pizza in the UK. That includes some options we have here like fritters, sweet corn, and red onion. But that is not all. You can also get things like Frango Catalao, which is chicken in a kind of paprika condiment. You can order tandoori chicken, which is chicken with a mixture of Indian spices. And you can also put tuna on your pizza.

Jose:Wait wait. Did he say tuna? Tuna on pizza? No, there's no way. So this is a pizza that has everything you can only get at a US Domino's: first, the crust. It's our Brooklyn-style thin crust. Instead of tomato sauce, we made a white alfredo sauce. Here we have banana peppers, salami, feta cheese and also parmesan and cheddar. This should only be known as US. For example Pizza Hut should have this on the menu and you say, "Just give me US". And that's the pizza you get. Hard. I don't understand it. [laughs] Yeah, I hate that. Take a piece. See what you think.

Torment:So here are some British sides you won't find on the menu at Domino's in the US: First, we have the Garlic Cheese Bread. Chicken kickers that are like nuggets with a spicy coating. They recently added these Pop'n Chicken Bites to the menu which are similar to KFC's popcorn chicken. You can also get Chicken Strippers which are just like Chicken Tenders. Potato wedges if you want some kind of potato option with your pizza, and you can also get a pot of coleslaw.

Jose:I don't think we have garlic cheese bread, but we have this one, which is like stuffed cheese bread. Also, on this side, you have these chicken pieces, and then these over here, these parmesan bread knots. [crunch] I love it too Domino's will get you hooked with a side of grated Parmesan cheese. That is great. Chicken Carbonara, this is a pasta dish, but it obviously looks like chicken, bacon bits, onions. In the United States, Domino's offers several types of sandwiches. I only chose one. I got the chicken parmigiana sandwich. Let's take a look at that over there. Check out the chicken parmigiana. How good does it look? Classic garden salad. We found something green on the menu which is good. What we have here Tomato, onion, cheese, lettuce, croutons. [sighs] Who cares?

Torment:Now the standard sauce that comes with their pizzas is this garlic and herb sauce from the UK. But there are also some unique UK sauces. This includes a small pot of Frank's RedHot Sauce, and we can also get a honey mustard.

Jose:Domino's in the US has its own signature sauces. That spicy foosball sauce, that sweet mango habanero sauce. This one is really good. Ranch. You don't have a ranch? I thought so. I don't think so. Blue Cheese Sauce, mm. And of course the marinara sauce.

Torment:Finally, if you have a sweet tooth, Domino's has some uniquely British desserts. First we have Domino's Cookies, which are really really good, especially when you heat them up and they stay warm when they're resting in the pizza boxes. And then you can also get a range of Ben and Jerry's flavors at Domino's in the UK. They're like a licensed provider, which is great.

Jose:And for dessert, in the US, there are these Marbled Cookie Brownies or these Crispy Chocolate Lava Cakes. That also depends on it, the sweet glaze. I'm sure it's amazing. This allows you to pour more sugar over the sugar. Let's put some ice in this type of lava. [Laughs] Oh! This is too much. Arrest prison! I need, I need, I'm going to eat this whole tray. I need to get this off my face. I'm ready to destroy these brownies.
