CiCi’s Pizza combines the variety of a family-friendly buffet with the thrill of bottomless pizza. Each pie is crafted with dough made from scratch daily and then slathered with homemade marinara and showered with toppings ranging from traditional pepperoni and Italian-style sausage to creative combinations including buffalo chicken and mac 'n' cheese, resulting in more than 28 signature pizzas. The buffet is stocked with a plethora of fresh pastas, such as cavatappi noodles with classic marinara or alfredo sauce, as well as fully customizable signature salads. After they've feasted on savory options, diners can revisit the buffet for dessert including freshly baked brownies, slices of apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing—or they can eat dessert first, thereby tearing an irreparable hole in the space-time continuum.
Tomato-orange walls line East of Chicago Pizza Co, an homage to the tangy sauce nestled beneath pizzas' gooey mozzarella layers. In the kitchen, cooks mix fresh dough each day, sculpting it into five types of crust that hold a choice of 14 toppings, such as pepperoni, black olives, and mild banana peppers. They stuff loaded crusts with pepperoni and cheese and mold Chicago-style crusts as deep as Descartes's diary entries.
Most pizzas come in six round sizes, and thin-crust varieties can be ordered as 16-piece squares. The crew also builds sub sandwiches from savory meats and coats buffalo wings with succulent barbecue and garlic sauce. Dutch-apple dessert pizzas end meals on a sweet note, with a hint of satisfying crunch far superior to the sound of Cap'n Crunch eating his own hat.

From over 9,000 locations from Delhi to Detroit, Domino's realizes a dream kindled over 50 years ago when the three dots on the famous logo represented one restaurant. After a memorable ad campaign in 2009, the franchise crafted a brand-new pizza recipe with the collaborative help of the cooks that make the pies, the customers that eat them, and the dragons that cook them. In addition to baking up hand-tossed, crunchy thin, deep-dish, or Brooklyn-style pizzas, kitchen staffers also prepare chicken wings, stuffed cheesy bread, and signature dessert pizzas. Domino's exemplifies their commitment to responsible community stewardship with a plethora of charitable pursuits, from their partnership with St. Jude's Hospital to their on-the-scene response during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
