Now You Can Pig Out on Bacon-Wrapped Pizza Crust

Little Caesars

We've reached peak bacon and that's just fine

Little Caesars is rolling out a deep-dish pizza with a crust wrapped in 3.5 feet of bacon.

Promoted with the tagline “in bacon we crust,” the pie is “an 8-corner deep dish pizza wrapped in decadent whole strips of thick-cut, crispy bacon, and then topped with pepperoni and even more chewy pieces of savory bacon goodness,” according to a news release.

And while some pizzas can be part of a healthy diet, this pizza is not one of them; each slice reportedly has 450 calories.

Little Caesars will be offering the pie from Feb. 23 through late April.

It is the latest eyebrow-raising bacon stunt at a time when there seems to be a bacon version of everything, from toothpaste to vodka to shaving cream.
