REVIEW: We ate Little Caesars Pizza so you don’t have to

“Cheesy, a little greasy and, I would imagine, the perfect accompaniment to a jug of beer or two”

Today we took the plunge – We ate one of the “HOT-N-READY” pizzas from the newest American pizza joint to hit town,  Little Caesars.

WHAT IS LITTLE CAESARS?

The first Little Caesars opened in the state of Michigan in America around 50 years ago. Since then the chain has built stores all over the world and pioneered retail pizza in places like sports arenas, college dormitories, and military bases – places pizza has never been served before.

WHAT IS A “HOT-N-READY” PIZZA?

A large pepperoni or cheese pizza from Little Caesars that you can just walk in and pick up. No need to wait.

WHAT THEY SAY

Our appetising lineup of Little Caesars HOT-N-READY® products is made from the finest ingredients. Our dough is made in each store every day and our cheese is 100% Mozzarella and Muenster. Our world famous pizza sauce contains a secret blend of spices that our customers love!

WHAT WE SAID

“Cheesy, a little greasy and, I would imagine, the perfect accompaniment to a jug of beer or two”

“Look, it would be good food if you’re on a budget. The base was actually way better than I expected! And it had yummy tomato sauce”

“It is what it is. Nothing more, nothing less”

THE VERDICT

If you’ve only got $5 in your pocket, you could do a lot worse. But if your budget extends beyond a fiver you might want to spend it with one of the many local pizzerias around the city and into the suburbs. We’ve listed some of our favourites below.

  1. “Flushed with pizzerias” I know some of the eatery reviews in Newcastle can be a little embellished but now I feel uneducated and obligated to ask – care to start a list? And for good measure, pizzeria is not an establishment that cooks a pizza, it has to have a dedicated pizza menu and be the majority menu item. So I cannot think of many in Newcastle at the moment, and the bars and cafes that might do one or two pizzas are so-lightly-garnished and overpriced in accordance with what a hipster might mistakenly refer to a cafe as a “pizzeria”, as Dominos market share firmly attests to!

    Little Caesars was great when we popped in during that first week. Pizza to us is cheat day, so always looking for a good equilibrium of price vs taste. $5 is negligible for a great . Most of the time I’ll Dominos app it, so is ready for pickup. LC understand this but need to be wary of becoming what it replaced.

  2. Thankyou! Jimmy’ll have to check some of these out!

    Napoli were an initial favourite but slightly small sizes and higher-than-most prices but freshness you can see make it such a treat we have only had it twice, they have different types of live music too for those that sit in – it makes pizza a lot more salivating, it would be nice to see a loyalty system or (more premier:) a promotion to entice more business not that they need it, it is quite popular but Jimmy feels like their next letterbox drop could have a good deal included!
