Detroit - Little Caesars, home of the $ 5 HOT-N-READY® and Detroit-style DEEP!DEEP!™ Dish, was the first quick-service restaurant to offer a deep dish pizza with a cheese stuffed crust. Now, Little Caesars is taking its crispy-on-the-bottom DEEP!DEEP!™ Dish crust to the next level by stuffing it with both pepperoni and cheese. Little Caesars first introduced a cheese stuffed crust deep dish pizza as a limited-time offer in March of 2016. After the promotion ended, Little Caesars received droves of requests from pizza-loving customers to bring it back, but this time, with a savory addition: pepperoni. Starting November 7, 2016, the Pepperoni Stuffed Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza will be available at all participating U.S. Little Caesars restaurants for a limited time.
“If you took all the pepperoni in the crust and topping the pizza and laid it end-to-end, it would be more than six feet of pepperoni,” said Edward Gleich, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing. “Combine that with the more than 3 ½ feet stuffed into the crust alone and you have a pizza powerhouse. This indulgent creation is perfect for pizza aficionados who can’t get enough of the quintessential pizza flavor combination.”
The Pepperoni Stuffed Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is an 8-corner, large deep dish pizza
This pizza offering is an extension of Little Caesars popular Detroit-style DEEP!DEEP! Dish product – an 8-corner, large pizza featuring a crunchy crust with caramelized cheese edges and topped with pepperoni and cheese. A nod to Little Caesars hometown, the DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is a Detroit-style pizza — a rectangular pizza that gets its crispy-crunchy edge and chewy inside texture from baking in a custom metal pan coated with olive oil.
