Eater‘s Khushbu Shah reports that, as of today, Domino’s is serving a pizza that swaps a traditional dough crust for breaded and fried chicken.
The creation is called the “Speciality Chicken,” and it comes in four varieties: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo, and Sweet BBQ Bacon. Domino’s describes the meaty beast in its press release:
“The boneless chicken product features a delicious combination of toppings, sauces and cheeses layered over 12 bites of lightly breaded, 100 percent whole breast white meat chicken.”
Apparently, Domino’s Pizza would like to show that it is a “legitimate player in the chicken business.” Russell Weiner, Domino’s Pizza chief marketing officer, says,
“Our new Specialty Chicken is one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had. Our pizza chefs have taken chicken to a whole new level, using our unique ingredients to create these four bold flavors. There’s nothing quite like Domino’s Specialty Chicken on the market today.”
To us, this just seems like an obvious spinoff of the KFC Double Down. #AllMeatEverything
