Slice reviews the LC Deep Deep Dish;
This has to be among the worst pizza reviews ever.
When a fast-food corporation comes out with a new item, I always wonder how the idea becomes a reality. I imagine someone in a brand-name suit with slicked back hair and self-esteem issues, using a PowerPoint presentation to pitch the edgy and innovative idea to a boardroom of expressionless executives. No one says a word, and then the CEO gives a slight nod. The presenter exits the boardroom and fist-pumps in the hallway. That's how it happens, right? Right.
No, really I suspect that it's more like "Hey guys, Jet's is eating our lunch from Michigan down to Florida with the very pan pizza we created and moved away from. And now Detroit style pizza is getting some media play. They may have something with this eight corner pizza though. A sort of compromise between our old square pan pizza and the eight corner Baby Pan! Pan!"
So this guy goes to a KMart for one. Then he explains how he screwed it before opening the box by piling "a bunch of stuff on your pizza box in order to cover your shame of buying Little Caesar's and bringing it home, alone." Nice.
Then a bit about canned mushrooms. Ok. I just disagree.
Then good things until we get to the crust. Then we find that he can't tell the difference between cheese and raw dough - or one of any number of other euphemisms (e.g. his a$$ from a hole in the ground). He has to dismantle the pizza to figure it out.
Now, to be fair. this gum line issue might be a problem for many. Ok, perhaps this pizza is not for everyone.
Save the $3 and go for the regular $5 Hot-N-Ready pizza if you absolutely have to have Little Caesar's, and instead of ordering the emulsified meat-product sausage (which does have actual whole fennel seeds, surprisingly), throw on some pepperoni. Skip those mushrooms. Oh, and go to Detroit for a Detroit-style pie.
Are you kidding me? You actually like the $5 LC Pizza?
Ok, do you even know what 'emulsified' means? Like vinaigrette? Or Hollandaise? No, you probably read the word 'emulsified' on a package of something and figured it was a chemical thing.
