As a fan of bacon and pizza, I figured why not give the Little Caesars “Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza” a try, and now I question if I should be left to my own devices.
On January 31, 2016, Little Caesars announced they were bringing back their Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza through a funny marketing campaign. where corporate scapegoat Chet Wallaby was put on blast for removing the fan favorite from the menu in May 2015. Chet looking like a deer caught in headlights “admits” to taking away the eight-sliced pizza topped with mozzarella, pepperoni and bacon, where the DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza crust is wrapped in three and a half feet of bacon.
The commercial peaked my interest since I LOVE bacon, cheese, and pizza! However, I have two MAJOR problems! I’m gluten and lactose intolerant. Would it be worthwhile to spend the day in pain to try the Little Caesars Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza? So I turned to YouTube and watched a few reviews of folks all enjoying the bacon, cheesy goodness of the dish. I mean if you are going to eat in your filthy car and praise Gawd for allowing this creation to be made, I figured I could suffer through the digestive drama for some greasy-good eats!
I headed to my local Little Caesars and placed an order for the advertised price of $12 and after waiting 20 minutes I got the goodness for a little under $13 (sales tax in NYC is 9%). Made my way home and in less than 10 minutes and got my body ready to settle in!
Once the box was opened, the heat of the pizza produced an overwhelming smell of bacon to fill my nostrils. Just call me Homer Simpson because I was hardcore drooling!!! I pulled out the an extremely large slice and it was definitely cheesy, so rest assured my taste buds were ready for that first bite. However, the delivery wasn’t as good as the presentation. With all sheer amount of bacon I was unable to taste anything other than bacon. As a bacon lover this should be fine, but it’s a bacon and pepperoni pizza, so I want to taste all the elements. I powered through the first slice and knew that was more than enough for me. Plus, the pizza is UBER greasy! DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza or not, I don’t eat my slices in NYC with a knife and a fork. Therefore, I had to bust out the Dawn Ultra dishwashing liquid soap to get my hands properly clean and devoid of the bacon smell.
I tried the Little Caesars Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish Pizza and I didn’t conquer it, and I don’t think that I ever will or want to. It wasn’t worth the stomach aches, my money, or my time. If you want to take on the challenge, this is a pizza that needs to be made fresh! I understand the joy of walking into Little Caesars and being able to pick up a pizza immediately, but I wouldn’t risk it for the Bacon Wrapped Crust menu item.
