Because some companies are cool arriving unfashionably late to the bacon game, Little Caesars has just announced a dip-dish pepperoni pizza with a crust wrapped in 3.5-feet of bacon slices. I imagine it will be every bit as disappointing as the last time you thought Little Caesars was a good idea.
Promoted with the tagline "in bacon we crust," the pie is "an 8-corner deep dish pizza wrapped in decadent whole strips of thick-cut, crispy bacon, and then topped with pepperoni and even more chewy pieces of savory bacon goodness," according to a news release.
I might try it. The press release says each slice is about 450-calories, so it at least meets my minimum calorie requirements. The only problem with Little Caesars (minus the taste and quality) is that they don't deliver, and when I want pizza I'm usually wasted. The last time I decided I could walk the mile to the closest Little Caesars I woke up on a bench outside a muffler repair shop. To this day I still don't know if I ate pizza that night.
Thanks to UniDude, who agrees they should have figured out a way to wrap each individual slice with bacon. What is this, amateur hour?
