ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Potholes and bumps in the road aren't just annoying to you -- they're problematic for your pizza delivery person, too, says Domino's pizza.

The popular pizza chain is on a mission to make busted roads smooth again with its new initiative, "Paving for Pizza."

Domino's says potholes, cracks and bumps can put pizzas at risk after they leave the store - whether they're being delivered or picked up by a customer. Starting Monday, the chain is asking customers to nominate their town for pothole repairs.

"We’re helping to pave in towns across the country to save your good pizza from these bad roads," the website says.

Domino's has already worked with four towns in Texas, Delaware, Georgia and California to help repair roads that directly affect customers, according to a news release.

"We don't want to lose any great-tasting pizza to a pothole, ruining a wonderful meal," said Russell Weiner, president of Domino's USA.  "Domino's cares too much about its customers and pizza to let that happen."

Customers interested in nominating their town for a paving grant from Domino's can enter the zip code at pavingforpizza.com. If selected, the city will receive funds to help repair roads.
