ANN ARBOR, Mich. /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, is once again delivering in unexpected ways, giving Facebook users the power to choose the company's next "Extreme Delivery."

"This is really an extension of just that - and our most recent way of answering the question 'Did Domino's really do that?' with a resounding 'Oh Yes We Did!'"

- The first weightless pizza delivery in a zero gravity airplane
