DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Bacon lovers rejoice! Bacon-bacon! Little Caesars is introducing a new crust that will blend chewy, cheese pizza and crispy bacon.
The Detroit-based company announced Wednesday it is introducing Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza on Feb. 23.
“The Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish is another example of how we’re continuing to innovate and offer variety on our menu while fully leveraging our core strengths built around value, convenience, and quality,” Little Caesars Pizza President and CEO, David Scrivano stated in a release.
The new pizza, which will be available nationwide for a limited time, takes Little Caesars’ 8-corner, Detroit-style deep dish pizza and wraps the crust with two types of bacon and tops it with pepperoni. It will be sold at participating locations for $12 plus tax where applicable.
“Little Caesars focuses on giving customers new flavors and choices at a great value and with the sense of fun we’re known for,” said Edward Gleich, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, said in a release. “With the new Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish we’re pushing pizza to its bacon limits with more than 3 ½ feet of bacon wrapped around the crust alone.”
The bacon wrapped pizza will be sold until late April, and will be available from 4-8 p.m., and by request.
