Review: Smokehouse Pizza from Little Caesars

I love BBQ-based pizzas.  If I find a really good one, I’m very likely to become a repeat buyer.  My favorite can be found in my hometown, but on a national level, I’m always curious to see how well a chain pizza place can pull it off.  In 2014 I tried one from Pizza Hut and one from Papa John’s.  This time around, Little Caesars is the one grabbing my attention with their new Smokehouse Pizza.Little Caesars Smokehouse PizzaHere’s how Little Caesars describes the new Smokehouse Pizza:

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.

The description of the Smokehouse Pizza reads almost like an ad for Arby’s doesn’t it?  Little Caesars went out of their way to let us know that they’re pretty serious about their barbecue and that’s impressive coming from a pizza place. … continue reading “Review: Smokehouse Pizza from Little Caesars”
