"History in the making – our first DRU Drone test flight today was a great success," the company wrote.

The drone flew through the sky before lowering the pizza box down to the three men who can be seen inspecting the pizza, which remained intact through its flight, before enjoying a historic bite.

Domino's New Zealand has been researching new ways to deliver pizza including the Domino's Robotic Unit, an autonomous pizza delivery robot, which they debuted in March.
