Review: Little Caesars - Stuffed Crazy Bread

Little Caesars Stuffed Crazy Bread features Crazy Bread dough wrapped around a core of mozzarella, then baked, brushed with a garlicky butter-flavored sauce, and sprinkled with parmesan.

A 3-piece order cost me $3.49 and came with Crazy Sauce (marinara sauce) for dipping.

Stuffed Crazy Bread isn't actually all that much thicker than regular Crazy Bread but there was a good bread-to-cheese ratio that pretty much went from end to end.

The mozzarella was nicely melted and was hot enough for a pretty good cheese pull. It seemed to be the standard stuff you find in the chain's stuffed crust pizza, which is to say it was creamy and lightly salted but otherwise mild in flavor. The creamy richness provided a nice buffer for the sauce and parmesan on the surface.

The bread portion was soft throughout with a fair amount of chewiness to it. I often wonder if Crazy Bread would be a little crispy out of the oven before they cover it with the buttery sauce and put it in the bag to steam. With an even coat of the greasy sauce, the bread doesn't dry out as fast and my leftovers toasted up to a nice, crisp crust.

Beyond coating both sides of the wax paper that the Stuffed Crazy Bread was wrapped up in, the buttery sauce and parmesan were good for light buttery garlic flavor and a salty and strong punch of parmesan.

The included Crazy Sauce for dipping came in a fairly large container that was more than enough for the three pieces of Stuffed Crazy Bread (I'm pretty sure I could have made a plate of spaghetti with it). The sauce offered a robust tomato flavor and strong herb notes with a moderate sweetness and tang. While it cuts well against the cheese richness of the Stuffed Crazy Bread, I found it a little distracting and preferred to eat the bread alone.

Overall, Little Caesars Stuffed Crazy Bread made for a nice tweak to a signature menu item while costing the same (although it's a choice between 8 pieces of Crazy Bread versus three Stuffed Crazy Bread pieces with Crazy Sauce). The gooey cheese adds a balance to the breadsticks that has me preferring the stuffed version over the original.
