Review: Little Caesars - Pepperoni Deep Dish Pizza

While the mainstay of Little Caesars' empire is the Hot-N-Ready pizza, they do offer other options including a Deep Dish Pizza that I tried recently at $7 for a large with one topping.

The Deep Dish Pizza features a thick square pizza baked in a deep-dish pan and cut into eight triangle-cut pieces. I picked pepperoni for my topping.

The deep-dish pan gives it a fried, oily crispy crust similar to Pizza Hut's Pan Pizza but better. The crust is slightly thicker and has a crunchy but a bit of a chew as well. It gives way to a thick layer of moist, spongy crumb (Pizza Hut was a fair bit drier).
The crumb actually reminds me a little bit of soft white bread. The combination and contrast of textures is quite nice.
As for the rest of the pizza, it's all pretty basic; nothing fancy but that's not a bad thing. An adequate amount of pizza sauce, good mozzarella cheese coverage and slightly crisp at the edge thin pepperoni slices. It's basic, balanced and pretty satisfying. Good stuff!
