Petitions and Fan Clubs Prompt Return of Fan Favorite

DETROIT — Little Caesars, home of the $5 HOT-N-READY® pizza, is bringing back its much-loved Pretzel Crust Pizza to its U.S. restaurants once again following a four-year hiatus and unwavering requests by enthusiastic customers. First introduced as a limited-time promotion in 2014, the Pretzel Crust Pizza is a large buttery-flavored soft pretzel crust pizza with creamy cheddar cheese sauce, mozzarella and Muenster cheeses and pepperoni. Customers can get their soft pretzel fix from the pizza starting January 28 available nationwide for a limited time for only $6 plus applicable tax at participating locations.*

“When the pretzel pizza promotion ended in 2015, we were inundated on social media and with phone calls, emails, and even online petitions by pretzel-loving customers,” said Ed Gleich, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Little Caesars. “Four years later we’re still getting those requests and have a very passionate fan base. In fact, it’s still our most common product request.”

Starting January 28, HOT-N-READY Pretzel Crust Pizza is available from 4:00-8:00 p.m. Customers can also order ahead and pre-pay via the Little Caesars app, then conveniently collect the order using Pizza Portal pickup (the Little Caesars heated, self-service mobile order pickup station). 

Customers just place an order and pre-pay via the Little Caesars app. The app will notify customers when the order is ready. When customers arrive at the store, their order is ready for them to pick up so that they can go directly to Pizza Portal pickup and input a 3-digit pin or scan a QR code. Then, the door on the secured compartment opens, and they take their hot, fresh order. It’s that simple.
