    The cut-throat pizza business in New Zealand is gearing up for a new round of hostility, as market heavyweight Domino's and Hell try to hold on to slipping profit margins in a world of soaring cheese prices.

    Domino's - which pitches itself as the "value" end of the market - is tomorrow launching a new, healthier pizza, hoping its fat-free crust will attract punters watching the kilos as well as sport on the TV.

    It is also staging a push into the "premium" side of the market, where it will find itself in a more direct fight for customers from local pizza heroes, Hell Pizza. A new push to online ordering is also under way, with Domino's this month rolling out its new internet ordering process.

    Statistics New Zealand last week reported a 14.7 per cent jump in butter and cheddar cheese prices - prices difficult to pass on to pizza buyers taking advantage of fierce competition between Hell, Domino's and once-dominant Pizza Hut.

    If Domino's NZ is anything like the US version, it ought to be easy to avoid. I always thought their crust was fat free anyway - rather like a saltless saltine cracker.

    Our local Domino's Pizza just received an "E" in the hygiene rating. Yuck! Hell Pizza is an excellent alternative.

    Aren't all pizza crusts fat free if you don't eat them?

    What about the cheese - I'd thing there's far more fat there than in the crust. If you want fat-free pizza, serve up some tomato sauce in a bowl.

    Selchie, the image of a dish of pasata made me giggle. I reckon we should open a new pizza joint. Our signature dish should be a cardboard pizza box with a spoonful of tomato sauce spread over the inside. For extra topping, we could offer two spoons of sauce!
