Remnants of Little Caesars at the local BBQ restaurant

I've only lived in my town for about 12 years, but apparently.. a popular pizza chain was once located in the building that my favorite local BBQ restaurant now occupies.  I noticed the following while leaving the store after a wonderful meal recently.  Check it out..

It's Little Caesar himself!  Folks in the restaurant (and my kids) were actually giving me some strange looks as I stopped to shoot some pictures of this door.  Not sure if many folks will understand how exciting it was for me to find this relic from years gone by.  I've been a lifelong Little Caesars, and the likeness of "Little Caesar" always brings back fond memories from years gone by.

Little Caesars Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza

SO happy Little Caesars brought back their Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP! DEEP! Dish pizza.  Here's a review I did on my other blog back when it first hit the market..

My son and I have performed reviews on several Little Caesars menu items in the past that the company enjoyed, so they reached out and offered us an opportunity to sample their newest creation.  These wonderful pies are HOT-N-READY everyday between 4 & 8:00PM.  They are available for a limited time at participating locations for $12 plus tax, although I hope Little Caesars considers bringing them back at some point in time.

Cooking and baking with bacon is nothing new, and I've seen many pizza creations that feature all types of bacon goodness.  However, baking it into the edge crust of a pan style pizza is sheer genius, and a refreshing new take on this type of pie! I am a huge fan of bacon and an even bigger fan of pizza, so it probably comes as no surprise that my son feels the exact same way.   Heck, the first solid food to ever pass his lips happened to be pizza.  However, even with his great love of pizza, in most cases.. he won't eat the last remnants of his pizza crust (sacrilege I say!)  I decided to pick up a Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza, and test a hypothesis I had about finally being able to get him to eat his crust!

Here's how it went down at dinner..
"Here ya go son, you're eating this pizza.. crust first"

It hits him that this is no ordinary crust!

Still seems a bit apprehensive..

 Success!  Junior says "All pizza should have bacon crust!"

So my hypothesis was correct, Junior left no crust uneaten!  Nor did anyone else in my household for that matter. Just look at the wonder that IS Little Caesars Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza.  It truly is an edible piece of art!  As for the mechanics of this pie, I've got to say that it was firing on all cylinders!

I was worried that the actual pizza I brought home would look very little like the masterpieces shown on their television commercials.  I mean c'mon, we've all experienced this phenomenon with big chain burger joints.  However, as you can plainly see, it was every bit as beautiful as the pizza featured on TV!

Through force of habit, I didn't attack my slice of pie crust first like Junior did.  However, the first bite was full of bacon flavor.  This was partly because of the bacon pieces sprinkled on top, but also as a result of the bacon wrapped crust.  Quite a bit of bacon flavor actually transfers past the edge crust and further on into the pie.  Finally, the great thing about these slices is that you get 16 crunchy corner slices total, with two crunchy and bacony sides per slice!

All in all, everyone in my family loved the Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza.  Make sure to run out and bring one home before the end of its limited run.  I know I will definitely be bringing more of these home soon.  Heck.. who am I kidding?  I'll most likely bring another one home tomorrow night! 

A big thanks to Little Caesars for reaching out, and facilitating our review of this great pizza via a gift card.  Thanks Caesar!  For more info on their company and news, check out Little Caesars on the Interwebs!
