I finally caved. I’d seen the commercials. I’d seen some random guy on YouTube buy it and eat it on camera (Sorry I can’t find the link, but he was so entertaining. I couldn’t trust his evaluation though since I’m pretty sure he loves all food.) I couldn’t help but try out the allure of bacon wrapped pizza. What genius marketing from Little Caesar’s.
To be honest, I’m not even sure what I paid for the pizza. When I heard bacon wrapped I did something that rarely happens to me: I just said give me one of those without even considering the price. I remember blankly staring at the price, but I didn’t even process the number in my head. I just ordered it. I also told myself that I’ll probably never buy it again, but I had to at least try it once.
My assessment of the Little Caesar’s Bacon Wrapped Pizza was it was good, but not great. How could I dislike a pepperoni deep dish pizza with bacon on it and wrapped around it? I couldn’t dislike it, but did I like it any better than the usual cheese or pepperoni that I usually ate? Not really.
I will say that the crust on the bacon wrapped pizza was better. I wasn’t sure if the bacon would be cooked right, but it tasted really good. Definitely better than a plain crust.
All in all, I think I was right. I don’t see myself ever buying the bacon wrapped pizza again. If I saw it at a party next to a slice of cheese pizza, I’d probably take the bacon wrapped pizza. However, I don’t see myself paying extra for it. I’m a simple man with simple needs. Cheese or pepperoni are just fine with me. It was nice to splurge once though.
