Thus far, more than 50 pizza-punching potholes have been fixed.

New Orleans drivers are well aware of the pothole problem in the city, making it an obvious choice for a helping hand from Domino's. They say potholes, cracks and bumps can all damage your deliveries.

And no, they're not kidding, they really are filling in potholes, although not at random, as towns need to be nominated on the Paving For Pizza website.

Yes, the chain eatery is adding asphalt to its sauce-and-cheese operation, and hopes to fix roads across the entire country, one town at a time.

The company has begun a campaign to help pay for road repairs.

We'll skip the debate on the "great-tasting pizza" comment and note that the initiative is called Paving For Pizza, and Domino's says in a release that it fixed 200 potholes across four municipalities.
