Domino’s new pizza topping is ‘rude’ says shoppers – what is it?
Domino’s Pizza has tens of different flavoured pizzas on offer, and customers will be flocking to their nearest branch of the restaurant this weekend to choose their favourite one, opting for a casual Valentine’s Day meal in lockdown. Of the many toppings available, they will be able to choose a brand new option.
Domino’s announced the launch of their new pizza topping on February 8.
The pizza is now available for delivery or takeaway from all UK Domino’s stores.
Named the ‘Absolute Banger’, the pizza’s topping is filled with meat.
It features pepperoni, sausage, chorizo, and hot dog slices.
New Foods UK shared a photo of the pizza on their Facebook page yesterday, and fans of the pizza chain were divided.
Some liked the look of the meaty feast, with one Facebook user commenting: “Valentine Pizza. Think we could demolish this.”
Another tagged a friend, saying: “This looks like your dream pizza!”
“I know you both like a bit of sausage,” added another commenter.
However, some customers were not as impressed as others.
“Ever such thing as too much sausage?” asked one Facebook user.
Another said: “How to get dumped for Valentine’s.”
“Rude,” wrote another commenter.
Although the sausage flavour is new, it comes on Domino’s usual hand-stretched fresh dough base, like all its other pizzas.
The base is topped with a vine ripened tomato sauce and a generous sprinkling of 100% mozzarella cheese, before the different types of sausages are then added.
On its website, Domino’s says that this Valentine’s Day is set to be one of the restaurant chain’s busiest day of the year.
“We’re predicting over 430,000 pizzas will be ordered this Sunday, that’s around 1,385 pizzas a minute at peak!” it explains.
Josh Engleman, Senior Sausage Slicer at Domino’s, said: “The Absolute Banger combines four delicious sausages, each offering something different. With the perfect combination of spices and smokiness, we can’t wait for customers to try the Absolute Banger.
“We’re expecting a busy one this weekend as Cupid gets to work, but whether your plans are in your household bubble or simply virtual, you can always rely on Domino’s to deliver your favourite piping hot pizza – we got this!” he added.
A large ‘Absolute Banger’ pizza costs £19.99, though prices may vary from store to store.
It is available now to order online, through the Domino’s app, or at your nearest store.
