Domino’s Breaded Chicken Crust Pizza & 13 Other Crazy And Sort Of Disgusting Fast Food Innovations

I don’t eat a ton of fast food, but I do pay close attention to the fast food industry’s attempts to one-up each other with crazier, weirder and, if you ask me, more disgusting food innovations and hybrids.

I Would Go To Pizza Hut Just To Play With Their Touchscreen Menu

An Ode To The Woman Who Attempted To Shoplift 330 Pizza Rolls From Walmart
