The new controversial pizza on the Domino's menu

Food 14/05/2019

People who love pineapple pizza, rejoice - a new controversial topping is in town, and it includes the very best of the Hawaiian classic.

Domino’s Pizza and Wattie’s announced their collaborative effort to get Spaghetti Pizza on the Domino’s menu for a limited time. 

Domino’s appeared to anticipate backlash by the self-proclaimed (and definitely not Italian) pizza connoisseurs of the internet, titling their social media announcement: “This is no joke!"

“We’ve officially added Hawaiian spaghetti pizza to our menu for a limited time only, with help from our friends at Wattie’s NZ,” the post continued.

The limited edition product is priced at $7.99.

Facebook users were inevitably divided on the newest menu addition, with some Bill English fans expressing their excitement for the pizza. 

“Should do one with beef mince and cheese. Spaghetti Bolognese pizza,” a spaghetti fan said.

Others expressed disdain for the combo.

“How about officially un-adding it from the menu,” one user suggested.

A lot of things politicians say rile up the public, but there’s nothing like a good pizza debate. Former Prime Minister Bill English claimed spaghetti was his topping of choice in 2017.

The concept of spaghetti on pizza sparked a dispute passionate enough to rival the persistent pleas of pineapple devotees.

Needless to say, pizza purists across the nation will have something to say about the spaghetti-pineapple combo.
