ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Ushering in 2005 with a great pizza offering called the 555 Deal, Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized leader in pizza delivery, will help supply hundreds of New York City police officers working on New Year's Eve in Times Square with hot slices of pizza.
