Last week we reported on Domino’s Japan’s new Fish & Chips Pizza, showcasing their ability to deliver toppings that go beyond the norm for your typical pie. It seems they’re consistent in that innovative energy by introducing a new Quattro Nippon Pizza that features four different flavors all at once: Mentai Mayo Mocha, Hokkaido Three-Cheese, Charcoal-Grilled Teri-Chiki, Charcoal-Grilled Beef.

The out-the-box mentality that Domino’s Japan has when it comes to pizza toppings is something I definitely can get behind, ,and if I were in Japan right now, I’d drop the ¥1,300 JPY (approximately $12 USD) it takes to score me this new Quattro Nippon Pizza.
