Domino’s has launched a bubble tea-inspired pizza – complete with black sugar pearls, honey and cheese.
Available until the end of November, foodies can order the unusual sweet and savoury pizza topping at Domino’s stores across Taiwan.
The sweet tapioca balls, known as boba, are commonly found in milky tea drinks, which have been popular among tens of thousands of customers around the world, including Australia, UK and the US.
‘Don’t miss the highlight of Taiwan that is popular around the world: the black sugar pearl explosion,’ the pizza chain said.

Despite it’s bizarre combination of cheese and honey coated base, foodies who got their hands on a slice insisted the dessert pizza tastes better than it looks.
Lev Nachman, a University of California Irvine PhD candidate who’s conducting research in Taiwan, shared his glowing review on Twitter.
‘It’s happening. I’m having the mythical Taiwan exclusive boba pizza from Domino’s for dinner. Will report back on the situation later,’ he tweeted before eating.
The man said he was pleasantly surprised by the flavour combination.
‘Omg it’s incredible. They nailed it. Not joking, everyone here needs to try this. The pizza is savory, but it’s sweetened with honey on top, the boba aren’t mushy,’ he said.
He also mentioned his friend who ‘daringly tried’ the new creation agreed the pizza was ‘in fact delicious’.
Speaking to CNN Travel, Lev said he enjoyed the pizza’s texture ‘Q’.
‘In Taiwan everyone loves the texture “Q” which means chewy or bouncy in the way boba is, and this pizza was indeed very Q,’ he said.

His tweet was quickly retweeted by 350 people, and ‘loved’ 1,200 times – as his post was met with mixed reviews.
‘That’s just so amazing! I cannot imagine how it tastes like or what the texture is like to be honest. Have to give it a try next time in Taipei,’ Jun said.
Another said: ‘Wait does it really taste okay? Because it seriously looks weird to me.’
One said: ‘I am intrigued. Will try anything (at least) once, let’s go get some.’
And one said: ‘No matter how good you said it is, I will pass.’
Bubble tea has become a very popular drink of choice around the world after it was founded by a Taiwan tea house chain in 1988.
