Little Caesar's Pretzel Crust Pizza Review

When I was a kid, we had a Little Caesars pizza joint in my hometown. They closed up shop sometime during the nineties and I didn't think about them again until a couple of years ago when another one sprung up on the other side of town. That in no way gave me incentive to eat there, as my town also has access to Dominos, Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, and DiGiornos, all of which are preferable to whatever microwaved food-like substance Little Caesars is churning out these days.

That was until I heard about the pretzel crust pizza.

This sucker has a salted pretzel crust, cheese sauce, cheese, and then more cheese.

I like cheese.

Now, the first thing I want to whine about in reference to this pizza is the fact that it comes with pepperoni. I am a vegetarian, which means that I had to special order one without pepperoni, which confused the cashier very much, and it meant that I had to wait at Little Caesars, which I'm pretty sure no one has ever had to do, ever.

When I got it home and opened it up, I was pleasantly surprised by all the cheesiness. And, believe it or not, the thing looked edible. Even more shocking, it actually looked like food. So I ate a piece.

Then I ate a few more pieces, because it's cheese on top of cheese on top of cheese on top of a pretzel, and that is, like, magnificence in a pie.

The pretzel part was...interesting. All by itself, it was pretty good. With the cheese sauce it was also pretty good. In the context of a pizza, it was weird. Never ever in my life have I eaten a slice of za and thought to myself, you know what would make this better? Pretzels.

I ended up downing half this thing and giving myself a bellyache. I'm not sure I would really recommend it, per say, but if you ever have a few friends over and you're curious about what cheesy cheesy pretzel pizza would taste like, then go for it. But get yourself a DiGiornos for backup first.
