Around the World: Domino's Taiwan Offers Okonomiyaki Pizza

Out in Taiwan, Domino's offers an okonomiyaki pizza. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake dish with various ingredients mixed with a batter and grilled.

Domino's take on fusing it with pizza includes stir-fried noodles on which the toppings are placed before being finished with Japanese mayonnaise (sweeter than typical mayo), powdered seaweed, and a healthy dose of bonito flakes (bonito are a type of fish).

The available topping comes in two configurations: Kimchi Bacon (kimchi is pickled spicy vegetables, usually cabbage but can vary quite a bit) or Seafood (which includes shrimp, squid, octopus, onion, and peppers).

There's a deal going on at Domino's Taiwan that has these going for $269 NT (~$9.24 U.S.) per large pizza.

Here's a video of the pizza featuring:

If you're wondering who the guy in the commercial is, that's Scott K.Oelkers, President and CEO of Domino's Japan. He's famous in Taiwan for starring in some Domino's commercials spoofing Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon some odd years ago.
