So you’re living in Paris, too exhausted to cook, the kids are hungry, what do you do? Order pizza. Yes, even in the world’s capital of fine dining, you can get pizza delivery and there’s not need to be embarrassed about it. The varieties may be different than what you’re used to back home and the pizzas are generally smaller. But tomato sauce and cheese (although usually a lot more emmental than mozzarella) are the order of the day. If your French skills are lacking, the key words are “Je voudrais commander…..” (I want to order…..). Some places even allow you to order on-line.
There are dozens of tiny pizza joints around Paris. Here are a few of the big names, many with multiple locations around town.
Domino’s has lots of locations in Ile de France, both in Paris and the suburban communities. Go to the Web site to find the location nearest you. You can order on-line or by phone although calling will cost you 15 centimes per minute.
