I get a little annoyed when people call out these fast food places for their "crazy" food. I mean, a 5 pound burrito might be a bit nuts, but putting an egg sandwich on a doughnut, for example, not really. You're fooling yourself if you think a croissant or bagel is somehow better than a doughnut. Looking at the picture, it looks pretty much like - as another poster said - Chicken Parmesan with some different flavors. Chicken parm as I've seen it traditionally prepared is a lot of calories and fat. There's a lot of faux-shock value in this sort of stuff.

My only issue, though, would be that this is not pizza, if that's what they're calling it (doesn't seem like they are).

I shall stay the way I am because I do not give a damn.

It is just processed chicken nuggest/tenders with some stuff dumped on top. It isn't pizza. They call it specialty chicken.
The idea doesn't totally disgust me but I don't think it would be very good from a fast food place. It just looks messy/soggy to me.

If I put sauce, cheese, and vegetables on a non- breaded chicken breast at home I'm sure it could be very tasty "pizza chicken".

BUNNYKICKS is absolutely right. The reality of it when it's actually served up is undoubtedly entirely different than what you'd think you were going to get looking at the photo. Then, for me at least, there would be the yucky feeling that would inevitably come after eating it...

In the past, I probably would have been tempted after seeing the photo. These days I'm not tempted at all. I know I wouldn't really love it and I would regret eating it afterwards, in more way than one. I look at the photo and see something that I know is just a greasy calorie bomb that's mostly devoid of any nutritional value and I know I wouldn't enjoy eating it. I think it's just that I've developed different tastes and enjoy different things now. I probably wouldn't be interested in eating it as a treat, either, because there are other things I'd rather indulge in (e.g. chocolate). I look at most fast food and I cannot imagine that I used to eat it and I am amazed that I used to enjoy it.

I look at the way that many, many (the majority?) of people eat these days--a bunch of fast food--and I feel bad that things have come to this. Whole generations of people getting a large majority of their calories from foods like this. It's why people can be overweight and have vitamin/mineral deficiencies at the same time. I think that fast food is way, way to prevalent in our society today. It used to be a treat. Now, it's just the way many people eat on a daily basis.

Also, just when you think fast food offerings cannot really get much worse than Big Macs, Baconators (sp?), stuffed crust pizzas and those deceptive salads with more calories than Big Macs, along comes a pizza with a fried chicken "crust." Wow...what will they think of next!

My family are pizza lovers! But some are just Yuck! I stay with the traditional styles, and my favorite is the "Veggie" lite on the cheese.

Where I live we have all kinds of pizza concoctions. I once had a McDonalds pizza. It was a pizza with french fries, cheeseburger, mustard, and ketchup on it.

I kid you not.

It was the most filling piece of pizza I ever had. And it really wasn't that bad. Would I order it again? No. But...I tried it. This one? ha ha maybe if I had a lot to drink one night.

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

Now, Former Fast-Food-Chicken-Loving Me would have been all over that. But I can just tell, it would have been regrettable. It would look all crunchy and chickeny, covered with goopy yummy flavours, YEAH! Would have seemed like a great idea.

And then the reality of it would be presented to me in its little cardboard box. The chicken would have been soggy and deflated, the toppings sloppy and messy, the actual presentation of fast food NEVER comes CLOSE to the advertising photos! But hey, I would have eaten it. And then would have come the heartburn.

But hey. I was "eating what I loved" right! Ha ha ha how things have changed. I wouldn't touch it now. Not because of "food snobbery" either, I just know I would a) be disappointed with the reality of it, b) not even like it so much, c) eat the whole thing anyways despite it being mediocre-to-poor and d) suffer painful regret. When you can see through to the foregone-conclusion, it makes it easier to just-say-no to the whole idea of it in the first place.

Pizza isn't a draw for me, so I wouldn't be tempted to try this, but it's one of the few things I don't care for, unfortunately.................wouldn't go to any pizza place.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

Sounds like Chicken Parm but with a twist. Too much of a calorie bomb but I would totally eat it.

Pizza and wings all in one. Not something for everyday, but I would eat it.

I think I see where they were *trying* to go. There's a trend right now for restaurants to put all sorts of toppings on top of a pile of tater tots. I bet someone at Domino's was like, "What if we replace the tater tots with chicken?" I could see it being popular with people who are out very late partying.

I can't even begin to imagine the calorie count on that. Definitely not worth it. I am weird, I think it looks good, but I definitely won't be eating it.

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Eat what you like and if someone comments, eat them too

Dominos has created a "pizza" with a fried chicken crust. Every time I think we can't get more disgusting, I'm proven wrong.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
