Digital pizza conjuring? There’s an app for that

It seems the once self-flagellating Domino’s Pizza is trying its darndest to put an end to home dough slinging with Pizza Hero, a devilishly clever iPad app. It starts as an innocent game, closer to Cooking Mama than Guitar Hero: using the touch screen, players select the toppings, slide the pizza into the oven, slice it and stuff it in a box for delivery (the central dough factory is notably absent). But hey, now that you’ve made the pizza, why not press a few buttons and have the real thing delivered to your home? Thankfully the app isn’t available in Canada yet, so Toronto’s children are safe…for now. [h/t Eater]
