Own a Ford with Sync technology? Now you can order a pizza hands free!

Ford’s relentless push to add as many apps to its Sync portfolio has finally peaked. With pizza. Because everyone should be able to order a pie without taking their hands off the wheel.

Anyone with Ford’s ubiquitous Sync AppLink system in their dashboard and a Domino’s app on their phone can, through their Domino’s “Pizza Profile,” place an order with a few voice commands and pick up a steaming, cardboard-crust pie on the way home. The “Pizza Profile” stores your payment info and details on your favorite pie, so you aren’t repeating “large Brookyln-style with pepperoni, bacon and pineapple” over and over, trying to get Sync to recognize the command.

“This is, no question, one of the coolest in a long list of recent technology innovations for Domino’s,” Patrick Doyle, the pizza chain’s president and CEO, said with complete earnestness.

AppLink allows drivers to connect to supported apps using voice commands, and with dozens of apps optimized for Ford’s Sync system, it’s one of the most dominant players in the market.
