Food Fail: Domino's Cheeseburger and Chicken Taco Pizzas

“There are a ton of social media posts out there about soggy burgers and tacos,” Domino’s chief marketing officer told Nation’s Restaurant News in August.

That’s right. With Americans relying more on takeout, “soggy” complaints have apparently gone viral. Domino’s solution: swap buns and tortillas for pizza crusts! Enter its new Cheeseburger and Chicken Taco Pizzas.

Never thought of adding “ketchup-mustard sauce,” American cheese, and beef to a pizza? What about taco seasoning, American cheese, and grilled chicken? Domino’s took those giant leaps for mankind.

In fact, each 280-calorie slice of a medium Cheeseburger Pizza—with its third of a day’s saturated fat and sodium—is like eating a McDonald’s cheeseburger.

The catch: Domino’s says that an 8-slice medium pizza “feeds 2–4.” That’s 2 to 4 slices per person. So each serving has 560 to 1,120 calories, mostly from salty meat, cheese, and white flour.

But you won’t see those numbers. Why? Most chains have to list calories per serving. Domino’s led—and won—the fight to list pizza calories per slice.

What’s next? Buttered Popcorn Pizza?

Loaded Fries Pizza? Reese’s Pieces Pizza?
