February 28, 2017 // Franchising.com // The pizza chain known for product innovations like the legendary Bacon Wrapped DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is now introducing a new mouthwatering meat creation. Little Caesars new Smokehouse pizza starts with a large round pizza smothered with mozzarella and Muenster cheeses, then topped with beef brisket, pulled pork, Applewood-smoked bacon and BBQ sauce, and finished with a smokehouse-seasoned crust. Starting February 27, the Smokehouse pizza will be available for a limited time at Little Caesars restaurants nationwide for only $9 plus tax where applicable, at participating locations.
“People love the no waiting, no pre-ordering convenience and amazing value they get with Little Caesars,” said Little Caesars Pizza President and CEO, David Scrivano. “So we decided to combine painstakingly slow-smoked meats with HOT-N-READY availability at a price that doesn’t break the bank. We’re a fun brand getting serious about meats.”
The Smokehouse pizza has three types of meats. The brisket starts with Midwest beef, which is brined with a proprietary blend of spices, then pit smoked with Hickory wood for 8-10 hours. The pulled pork is made in rotisserie style pit smokers for 10-12 hours. The Smokehouse pizza is also topped with crispy, savory, crumbles of Applewood smoked bacon. It’s up to you to decide which is the star of the show.
Starting February 27, the Smokehouse pizza will be available for a limited time at Little Caesars restaurants nationwide for only $9 plus tax where applicable, at participating locations. The Smokehouse pizza is available HOT-N-READY® from 4-8 P.M., or all day, every day by request.
