Listen, we love pizza as much as the next person, but there are limits. Caviar on a pizza? Pass. Pizza Hut’s pizza with a burger crust? Harder pass. A hot-dog stuffed pizza? The hardest pass of them all, and we have Domino’s to thank for it.
Domino’s scored brownie points in February with its unique free pizza promotion, where customers scanned literally any pizza — frozen, pizza from Domino’s competitors, even pizza-shaped dog toys — and with enough scans and points, you earn a free ‘za. But Domino’s has effectively taken three steps back with this monstrosity they call the Hot Dog Pizza.
Earlier this month in France, Domino’s released two new limited-edition hot dog pizzas, including a hot dog-stuffed calzone with mozzarella, sliced hot dogs and yellow mustard and a hot dog-topped pizza with a hot dog-stuffed crust.
And France can keep ‘em. We don’t need these items in our lives.
@dominos Hey I just saw that you are going to make hot dog pizza and I just wanted you to know that you are grounded until further notice.

Not everyone is repulsed by these hot dog pizzas, though.
I am absolutely going to buy a @dominos hot dog pizza in Missoula next week. Remember me fondly.

Domino’s didn’t stop there, though.
They also released a burger pizza with all the fixings, including tomato sauce, mozzarella, beef meatballs, onions, pickles, tomatoes and a “drizzle of burger sauce.” If you want to get really crazy, you can even order the burger pizza — as well as any other pizza on the menu — with a hot dog-stuffed crust, according to Brand Eating. Apparently over in France, you can also choose some truly, er, unique pizza toppings, like dried figs, honey, potato and salmon.
Thanks, but we’ll stick the classics.
