Around the World: Domino's Offers $50 Wagyu Beef Pizza in Australia

Domino's is looking to try their hand at (super) high-end pizza by offering the new, limited-time $50 Wagyu Duet in Australia. comes topped with premium wagyu beef. Purporting to offer "restaurant-quality" ingredients, the Wagyu Duet is actually two pizzas: the Wagyu 3 Ways and Wagyu & Truffle Hollandaise.

The selling point seems to be that the beef is restaurant-quality with a "wagyu grade of six plus marble score." Marbling is the amount of intramuscular fat you find in meat (usually red meat). You can see how much marbling that means here. The chain is claiming that the beef costs about $100 AUS per kilogram (about 2.2 pounds).

The Wagyu 3 Ways features strips of wagyu rib fillet, air-dried wagyu bresaola, and sliced wagyu sausage. It also comes topped with smoked rasher bacon (i.e. back bacon), ground beef, and a tomato capsicum (bell pepper) sauce.

The Wagyu & Truffle Hollandaise features a truffle-infused hollandaise drizzled over wagyu rib fillet, camembert cheese slices, cherry tomatoes, and sliced red onions.

As an added bonus, ordering the limited-time Wagyu Duet gets you line-cutting privileges (of sorts): your order gets bumped to the top of the queue.

Pizza prices in Australia are fairly comparable to US prices (pizza prices start at $4.95 at the low end), so it'd cost close to the same if they made one over here. If you were to travel to Australia, with the current exchange rate, it would be about $44.59 to get the Wagyu Duet.

  1. Wow the nutrition facts make it seem almost too healthy for a tortilla soup.. I can see how a sprinkle of cheese might balance that out, as you suggested :)
