Have you ever wished you could say the magic word and a pizza would appear at your doorstep? Well, it’s now a reality. Amazon and Domino’s Pizza have joined forces to make it easier—and faster—for pizza lovers everywhere to get what they want, and with very little effort.

Here’s the catch: It does require you to own the new Amazon Echo voice command device. Once you link it to Domino’s through their smartphone app, all you have to do is say “I want a pizza,” “Place my easy order,” or “Order me a pizza!” (politely, of course) and a hot, fresh pie will be delivered to your door. Just set up your “Easy Order” preferences on your Domino’s profile page and they’ll automatically charge your credit card and deliver anything from their menu that’s on your Easy Order list.

It’s not the first time Domino’s has taken advantage of technology to simplify its ordering process. Last year, the chain introduced “tweet-to-order,” which allowed hungry fans to order a pizza simply by tweeting @Dominos. And you thought Twitter was just for expressing your thoughts on this year’s Oscar snubs.
