The Detroit-based company took its pepperoni DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza, topped it with bacon crumbles and then wrapped the crusts in 3 1/2 feet of bacon.
Samples of the new pizza were delivered to the CBS Detroit offices for employees to try on the day it was released nationwide in participating restaurants.
I was able to try a slice before a swarm of my colleagues descended on the public area of our office for the salty, cheesy and chewy eight-slice pizza.

There are bacon crumbles sprinkled over the top of the pizza, which provide a salty taste among the cheese, crust and sauce. If you don’t have a bite of bacon, then the diner is likely to get a taste of slightly spicy pepperoni.
Along the crust, the crispy bacon provides a unique taste on the crunchy exterior of the pizza.
