Little Caesars Beefs up its DEEP! DEEP! DISH PIZZA with More Than Six Feet of Mouthwatering Pepperoni

Innovative Pizza chain introduces first ever 8-corner deep dish with pepperoni and cheese-stuffed crust

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - Little Caesars, home of the $ 5 HOT-N-READY® and Detroit-style DEEP!DEEP!™ Dish, was the first quick-service restaurant to offer a deep dish pizza with a cheese stuffed crust. Now, Little Caesars is taking its crispy-on-the-bottom DEEP!DEEP!™ Dish crust to the next level by stuffing it with both pepperoni and cheese. Little Caesars first introduced a cheese stuffed crust deep dish pizza as a limited-time offer in March of 2016. After the promotion ended, Little Caesars received droves of requests from pizza-loving customers to bring it back, but this time, with a savory addition: pepperoni. Starting November 7, 2016, the Pepperoni Stuffed Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza will be available at all participating U.S. Little Caesars restaurants for a limited time.

"If you took all the pepperoni in the crust and topping the pizza and laid it end-to-end, it would be more than six feet of pepperoni," said Edward Gleich, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing. "Combine that with the more than 3 ½ feet stuffed into the crust alone and you have a pizza powerhouse. This indulgent creation is perfect for pizza aficionados who can't get enough of the quintessential pizza flavor combination."

The Pepperoni Stuffed Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is an 8-corner, large deep dish pizza topped with cheese and pepperoni and surrounded by crispy, crunchy crust that is bursting with even more pepperoni and melted cheese. The Pepperoni Stuffed Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is only $10 plus tax where applicable, and is available HOT-N-READY® from 4-8 p.m. and all day, every day by request at all participating U.S. Little Caesars restaurants.

This pizza offering is an extension of Little Caesars popular Detroit-style DEEP!DEEP! Dish product -- an 8-corner, large pizza featuring a crunchy crust with caramelized cheese edges and topped with pepperoni and cheese. A nod to Little Caesars hometown, the DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza is a Detroit-style pizza -- a rectangular pizza that gets its crispy-crunchy edge and chewy inside texture from baking in a custom metal pan coated with olive oil.
