Little Caesars Combines Pizza and Bacon for One Great Pie
It's as if the heavens opened up and angels started singing specifically to me! Two of my favorite foods will soon be combined to tempt my taste buds and my waistline. Get ready for the combination of pizza wrapped in a bacon crust!
Consumers are obsessed with bacon and Little Caesars has found a way to take three and half feet of bacon and wrap it around a deep dish crust pizza pie.
Plans were unveiled by Little Caesars to reveal the Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza nationally on Monday, February 23, 2015. This limited time only bacon wrapped pizza will be one of the most expensive pizzas on Little Caesars menu costing $12.
This bacon wrapped pepperoni pizza not only has bacon wrapped around the crust, allowing fans to get the taste of bacon every time they take a bite of the crust, but also has bacon bits sprinkled on the top.
But a bacon wrapped pizza might have a few downfalls, however. The most obvious would be the calories. Face it, a pizza wrapped in a bacon crust probably isn't going to be the most health-conscious. A single slice weighs in at 450 calories; 23 grams of fat; 830 milligrams of sodium and 40 milligrams of cholesterol.
Another problem consumers will have to face is time. The extra time it takes to wrap bacon around a pizza crust might cause some problems in Little Caesar's kitchen.
And don't forget about the pizza delivery! A bacon wrapped pizza probably isn't going to travel well.
The Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza might have some flaws, but it could also be perfect timing for Little Caesars. With the popularity of bacon right now, this pizza pie could be a slam-dunk.
