While the question remains whether or not you should be eating Domino’s pizza at all, a clever service now allows you to pay for your pie with Bitcoins. The service is far from an official Domino’s app and is instead a gateway or broker between the world of pizza and the world of popular virtual currencies.

The site, PizzaForCoins, asks for your address and then brings up pizza places near you. You place your order and send over your coins – the exchange rate is “APPROXIMATELY $0.50 Cents less then the current Mt.Gox Rate,” their emphasis – and wait for your pizza. Then you eat it.

I've been waiting for this stuff for quite some time.  I'm happy someone finally had the means and will to do it.

Hopefully they won't just do pizza.  There is a whole market for online shopping for plenty of stuff, including groceries.  All this could be paid with bitcoins thanks to such a broker service.
