I'm hungry. How can QI help me get a pizza for my dinner?

It was totally not a publicity stunt but in 2016, Domino's Japan attempted to train reindeers to deliver pizza. For some unknown reason that no one could have predicted, the training failed so they dressed up their scooters to 'look like' reindeers instead. http://metro.co.uk/2016/12/02/dominos-japan-has-had-to-scrap-its-reindeer-delivery-plans-6297254/

There's what looks like a dead dog lying behind the driver in the top picture. Do they serve roadkill?

Pizza delivery was introduced to Japan in 1985 when Domino's Japan opened for business. Food delivery was already popular by that time. In the 1950s, men delivered soba noodles on bicycles. They would stack trays of noodles on top of each other and carry the tower on their shoulders, while riding a bicycle. The tower might be taller than the rider and it doesn't seem to be fastened or secured at all.

Mayonnaise on pizza seems to be a popular in Japan.

Hiya,

Do you recon that they would put mayonnaise on the most expensive pizza? (commercially available) according to Guinness.

Quote:
The most expensive pizza commercially available costs £2,106.53 ($2,700), and is sold at Industry Kitchen (USA) in New York, New York, USA, as of 24 April 2017.

The truffle is made of black squid ink dough, and is topped with white Stilton cheese from the UK, foie gras and truffles from France, Ossetra caviar from the Caspian Sea, Almas caviar, and 24K gold leaves.


Bon appétit :)

Pizza is derived from the Roman flat bread called Plancenta. They don't put that on the boxes...

Coincidence! I was about to post that myself after I heard it on a recent episode of The Unbelievable Truth this morning.

That was tongue in cheek - the silvery metal bit to the right of the words Domino's Pizza looks like the head of a black/white dog.

What I want to know, is how did they stack the bowls on top of the carrier? Or if they stacked on the floor, how do you lift that heavy stack without spilling or toppling?
