Today FM presenter Dave Moore turned pizza delivery boy in his native Portmarnock last week to celebrate the opening of the chain’s new store.
DJ Dave swapped decks for dough to surprise super fans with a very special delivery by a golf buggy dubbed the “Domi Cart“.
The celebrity local created his very own Pizza Legend – the Martello Tasty – named after the seaside village’s famous defence landmark, the Martello Tower.
The freshly hand-made to order pizza is topped with pepperoni and jalapeno peppers for an extra kick on a Domino’s classic crust.
The golf buggy was chosen since the shoreline along the rugged peninsula is famed for its stunning golf courses, most notably The Links at Pormarnock Hotel.
The course, which opened for play in 1995, was designed by Bernhard Langer and was the first that International Management Group developed in Ireland.
The Domi-Cart is now regularly seen around Portmarnock and the latest edition to the Domino’s fleet can reach a breackneck speed of 17mph, and carry up to four pizzas each trip.
Dave – who is half of the award-winning comedy radio duo Dermot & Dave – said he was thrilled to welcome the new pizza chain to his home town.
He said: “The Domi-Cart is a great way of paying homage to Portmarnock’s love of golf. It was an honour to work with such a talented crew to create my own Martello Tasty – hopefully, we’ve delivered a hole in one with this new pizza recipe.”
Fellow Portmarnock resident and super fan Tim O’Callaghan got the “biggest surprise” when he ordered a pizza and saw the radio host standing at his door.
He said: “I’ve been a big follower of Dave’s for years and I love Domino’s, so combining the two really made my week. The Domi-Cart is brilliant and locals are going to love it.”
Domino’s spokesman Joshua Speers said: “1We’re super proud to launch the DomiCart in Portmarnock and look forward to welcoming customers into the new store. I’m sure Dave’s Pizza Legend will be an equally big hit in the community.”
The Martello Tasty can be ordered on www.pizzalegends.ie using the ID “MARTELLOPORTMARNOCK”, or customers can create their very own pizza legends.
