Pizza is one dish loved by countless people across the world. Although the humble dish had its origins in Italy, it has lent itself to several variations in terms of toppings. For instance, in India, we regularly find outlets serving pizzas with toppings such as Tandoori chicken or Paneer Tikka. Domino's Japan recently carried out a similar experiment by creating a unique pizza topped with the British favourite Fish and Chips. However, Twitter users did not find the pairing appealing. Take a look at the tweet:
"Japan Dominos have invented a dish that insults both England and Italy," wrote Twitter user @marcooth. Within a short span of time, the tweet garnered immense traction receiving over 26k likes and 5.5k retweets. According to the description on the Domino's website, the pizza featured crispy Fish and chips, lemon, potato slices, basil, tartar sauce and tomato sauce.
Domino's Japan was quick to respond to the concern of the user. The official handle took to Twitter to reply to the viral tweet. They apologised for 'causing trouble' and expressed that the Fish and Chips pizza was actually quite delicious. Domino's also offered to share the pizza with anyone who was in Japan and wanted to give it a shot. Take a look at their response:
We are sorry our fish and chip pizza has caused so much trouble. We think it's quite delicious. If you are in Japan and would like to challenge let us know???? We may be able to work out a plan internally that we can offer to you for free!????— ドミノ・ピザ (@dominos_JP) July 12, 2021
Twitter users, meanwhile, remained divided about the Fish and Chips pizza. Some felt that the unpeeled lemon slices on the pizza were rather bizarre. Others insisted that the Fish and chips pizza wasn't the worst pizza on the planet, and there were toppings far worse.
Take a look at the reactions:
Fish, okay, that's weird but hey people like fish. Potato and tartar sauce, well I've seen weirder on a pizza.
But those are UNPEELED LEMONS on that pizza. Why. It defeats the whole purpose of a pizza if you have to remove the peels before eating the slice of pizza.— Vanilla Wayfarer (@VanillaWayfarer) July 12, 2021
They also do a roast dinner pizza in the UK so I think we have more heinous crimes than debating the use of pineapple to deal with— Puzzled Richie (@PuzzledRichie) July 11, 2021
The lemon slices are just madness, otherwise it seems fine.— I know what you did ???????? (@Wildheart_Baby) July 11, 2021
You cannot insult England with food, doesn't exist— جويلو (@GUILOUTZ) July 11, 2021
