NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Domino's Pizza  (DPZ) - Get Domino's Pizza, Inc. Report hit a 52-week high of $113.03 on Friday after CEO Patrick Doyle appeared on Jim Cramer's Mad Money on CNBC.

Before the market open Thursday, Domino's reported first-quarter earnings that beat expectations on both earnings per share and revenue. The results showed a 14.5% increase in domestic comparable-store sales. Other takeaways from the quarter included strong sales in India and Turkey and a 30 million-share repurchase program.

Doyle attributed Domino's strong quarter to solid fundamentals including quality food, superior technology, and a strong consumer helped by increased employment. He added Domino's continues to take share from smaller competitors as it grows.

Cramer pointed out on the show that Domino's has "the best mobile and online technology in the business" and called it "the gift that keeps on giving."

Doyle also said "Dom," the company's virtual ordering assistant, positions Domino's as a technology leader and has strengthened brand recognition. The CEO said he believes the stock has room to go even higher.

After speaking with Doyle, Cramer reiterated his feelings on the stock.

"[Doyle] said there's a lot more room. Who am I to disagree? He's been dead right for 1000%," Cramer said. "I like Domino's Pizza. I like Pat Doyle."
