I try not to cover national chains too much here too much, but once in a while a novel item appears in the wild and I am intrigued.
Recently, Domino’s Pizza launched its first new menu item since Handmade Pan Pizza in September 2012 – the specialty chicken, kind of a breadless pizza using chicken breast instead of bread topped with cheese and different toppings and sauces
The four unique flavors offered include Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo and Sweet BBQ Bacon.
I got a chance to try the Crispy Bacon and Tomato Specialty Chicken along with the Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple Specialty Chicken recently with a special delivery from the folks at Domino’s.
Overall, I was quite impressed – it offers a “low carb” option for those who are trying to avoid bread and looking for protein, and tastes just like what you’d imagine a pizza would taste if it was made with chicken breast instead of dough.
The Crispy bacon and tomato one had more of a tomato taste than the bacon, but was good. I would go for sausage or pepperoni next time if that was possible. The Spicy jalapeno pineapple was a bit too sweet for my tastes, but the spice from the jalapenos were nice.
My advice to Domino’s – maybe come up with a more catchy name as “specialty chicken” just seems a bit too vague or not memorable and…add more toppings!
