Food Review: Little Caesar’s Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep Dish Pizza

Welcome to your career in running conventions. I have to give Steven Archer from the band Ego Likeness credit for coining “Welcome to your career in the arts”. It’s applicable to a multitude of situations where people mistakenly think our lives are fancy.

I’m currently in crunch time working on our Doctor Who convention, (Re)Generation Who and have recently had surgery, so while I normally eat toward a paleo/primal scenario, we have days like this as well. Especially right before a big convention when neither of us has time to cook or go to a grocery store because we’ve been working for 20 hours every day.

Anyone who tries to tell you their life is perfect is probably full of ass.

The Little Caesar’s Bacon Wrapped Crust Deep Dish Pizza is surprisingly good and not very oily. The bacon wrapped around the crust is crisp, as is the bacon on top. The pepperoni is also quite good. There is a fair amount of cheese but nothing is done so much that it overpowers anything else or reaches the idiotic level. I mean, assuming you can give the concept a pass from the get go.

I don’t normally eat this kind of food and I was pleasantly surprised with how good it actually was. I wouldn’t eat this every day or every week, but for a Friday night of long hours and/or a gaming session this is a perfect choice to bring back college memories and make me feel not totally miserable that I haven’t had the chance to get to the supermarket in over a week and have a deadline.

I’m a big believer of everything in moderation, including moderation.

There are 2 annoying things about this pizza and neither of those issues are actually caused by the pizza itself.

The first annoying thing is that it’s a limited time item. I don’t find the Little Caesar’s menu particularly compelling or varied enough to be a regular customer without this being on the menu. The last time I went into a Little Caesars before ordering this pizza in 2016 was literally 1997. No exaggeration.

The second issue is that the Little Caesar’s website is really behind the times when compared to, for example, Domino’s, which is slightly more varied and you can order your pizza online. Both of these factors push us to Domino’s more often, but the Bacon-Wrapped Crust Pizza at Little Caesars is really something that, if you are down with the concept, is very good.

Because it needs to be said due to the amount of lying shitheads online – I’m not being paid to write this. I paid for this with my own money, and have no relationship with any of these companies. I blog about my life and this just happens to be part of it while I get up and running after surgery and still exceed my deadlines.
