If your town is picked, it will receive funds to help fix roads, so pizzas can make it home safely - and let's be real here, in your stomach, which is the ultimate goal.

Starting today, Domino's is asking customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs at the Paving for Pizza website.

The pizza maker says that cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store, so Domino's is hoping to help smooth the ride home for its pizzas.

Bartonville town administrator Michael Montgomery praised the company's input.

The company has repaired potholes in cities across the country, including 40 potholes in Milford, Delaware. For its latest move to get your pizza dollar, however, Dominos has something slightly more ambitious in mind, namely public infrastructure projects.

The inspection report stated that officials inspected a dough delivery truck and found no traces of contamination before it dropped off the product at the restaurant. She said Domino's wasn't disclosing how much it was spending on the grants.
