Little Caesar’s Crazy Calzony

Little Caesar's Crazy Calzony

This may just be the most innovative pizza creation we have seen from a pizza chain in quite a while!

The Crazy Calzony from Little Caesar’s is essentially half pepperoni pizza and half calzone. The middle is a pepperoni pizza while the edges feature a folded crust that resembles a calzone and stuffed with white garlic sauce, mozzarella cheese, and bits of pepperoni. All of that goodness is them topped with Parmesan cheese.

If that sounds as amazing to you as it does to me, you can order one from Little Caesar’s today. They will also be available as a HOT-N-READY item starting on August 23, 2021.
