The app allows users to order straight from the app, and can locate the nearest store to their location. The augmented reality function allows users to hold the phone up using the camera, which shows tabs giving directions to the store.
The company said it is looking to expand the app with future updates which would allow consumers to customise pizzas and offer exclusive deals for iPhone users.
