Fast Food History: Domino’s Breakfast Pizza

Fast Food History: Domino’s Breakfast Pizza

You’ve probably had pizza for breakfast at some time in your life, but have you ever had a breakfast pizza? You may be wondering, “What’s the difference?” I’m happy you asked. A breakfast pizza typically eliminates the marinara in favor of scrambled eggs and other breakfast food toppings. Domino’s Pizza attempted to enter the fast food breakfast game in the 1980s, and the results were scrumptious.

Breakfast food delivery seems completely routine nowadays, especially after the pandemic, but it wasn’t particularly common in the 1980s. So, when Domino’s introduced its amazing breakfast pizza to compete with fast food behemoths like McDonald’s, delivery before lunch proved unexpectedly difficult. Too bad. I could really go for a tasty buttery crust topped with cheesy eggs, bacon, and sausage delivered in the morning! (Bring it back, Domino’s!)
