Little Caesar’s is going to start selling a bacon crust pizza.
The “Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep! Deep! Dish” pizza will be available starting Feb. 23, the company said in a news release.
The company uses 3.5 feet of bacon to construct the crust.
The deep dish pizza is wrapped in bacon, then topped with pepperoni, cheese, and more bacon.
It costs just $US12.
“We are the only national pizza chain to make our dough fresh each day in-store. That gives us a unique opportunity to try new ideas,” Little Caesars Pizza CEO David Scrivano said in the news release.
We’ve reached out to the company to find out the calorie count of the new pizza. One slice of the pepperoni deep dish pizza without bacon has 390 calories.
The pizza is already a hit on social media.
