Dominos' pizza making pizza with a fried chicken crust

I dunno. I'd try it at least once.

  1. Yeah...carbs are bad for ya ;)

    I would SO try it. I have only had domino's twice in the last 30 years though.....I liked it fine, I just don't think about it...too many other things to eat and I actually do watch my carb intake.

    I will have to see if my local chain has this at some point because it would make a good high protein/medium fat lunch. Love chicken in almost any form.

    1. ...um–the item ("Specialty Chicken") isn't exactly a pizza, just kind of chicken fingers topped with various condiments. (Watch the video.)

        You say that like it's a bad thing.

        1. On a somewhat related story KFC making fried chicken corsages for prom season. We wonder why the rest of the world hates us. (Speaking as a US citizen)

            The rest of the world hates us because of joke items sold as viral promotions?

            Note that it isn't actually a fried chicken corsage. It's just a regular floral corsage that comes with a certificate for chicken.

          2. Okay, I took one for the team and just ordered a Crispy Bacon and Tomato chicken thing for my lunch. With Ranch dipping sauce. Call 911 if you don't hear from me in an hour or so. I'll report back on taste nonetheless.

                The portion was incredibly small at least for what I paid. In my neck of the woods, Dominos charges a delivery charge and then I had to tip the guy because he gave me sad puppy eyes. Oh, and they charged me for the cup of Ranch dressing. I ended up paying $11.24 for something that originally costs $5.99. I didn't do the coupon special of getting two items for $5.99 each because I really didn't want anything else.

                That said, if it were bigger, I wouldn't mind it. I definitely won't order it again though because it was a total lark. *Maybe* if someone else paid for it. Maybe. There was a good amount of bacon on it and tomatoes are definitely from a can or something.

                It's been an hour, you have not posted back, I placed the call. Apparently 911 does not respond to internet emergencies. I'm sorry, I tried, RIP Cornhash.

                  Hah! Jinx! I just posted my update above. I'm still here although my stomach is a bit rumbly...

                    Whew....that was a close one!! Always remember who had your back!!

              3. The other day, after a new Pizza Hut flavor, I told the wifeacita that somewhere the big three had somebody cooking up the next concoction. It never stops and never will. I demand an oyster stuffed crust pizza!

                  I'm with you on the oysters but, in the meantime, would gladly kill for a great New Haven style clam/garlic pie.
