It’s official… Pizza lovers visit Domino’s to get the pep in their step!

It’s time for Kiwis to celebrate their favourite pizza with National Pepperoni Pizza Day this Sunday (20th September). Pepperoni is the most popular pizza in New Zealand, with Domino’s stores across the country delivering, on average, over 10,000 Pepperoni pizzas to hungry Kiwis every day.

Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight, a pepperoni pizza lover himself, said he isn’t surprised by the enduring popularity of the pepperoni pizza.

“Domino’s has introduced a variety of flavoursome pizzas to the menu over the years, but nothing has ever come close to outshining this universally adored classic.

“To give you an indication of how much Kiwis love pepperoni on their pizza, our stores use around 275 metric tonnes of pepperoni a year – that’s 5,288 kilograms a week!” he said.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has restricted many joys we once took for granted, but we count ourselves lucky that we can still enjoy our favourite slice.

“Even during various alert level restrictions we’ve seen the power a Pepperoni pizza has to bring people together – whether it’s shared between household members or enjoyed virtually over a video call with friends.”

Over the years, pepperoni on pizza has only continued to grow in popularity, its salty and slightly sweet flavour profile complimenting the traditional tomato sauce and cheese combination of a typical pizza.

Even some of the most devout vegetarians can’t deny the distinct, mouth-watering aroma of a pepperoni pizza slice.

To share the joy of pepperoni with vegetarian pizza lovers, Domino’s became the first pizza chain in New Zealand to introduce a limited time only plant-based pepperoni to the menu in 2019, giving more customers a chance to enjoy the dough-licious taste sensation.

In recognition of a pizza so iconic it has its own national day of celebration, Domino’s is encouraging Kiwi pizza lovers to put some ‘pepp’ in their step (or stomach to be exact!).

“What better way to celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day this Sunday than with a slice of New Zealand’s most popular pizza,” Mr Knight said.
