Underneath the cheese and pepperoni, there's nothing to distinguish this crust from LC's standard, slightly dense base. But the outside actually does taste like a pretzel. Not a great pretzel, mind you. More like the Super Pretzels you'd buy at the grocery store, which is fine. After spying an employee lovingly drizzle some sort of garlic butter on it, then hit it with enough salt to give Blitzen a heart attack, I was stoked.
"It's just our regular crust, but with, like, baking soda and stuff on it to make it look like a pretzel," said the employee, who was seriously starting to bum me out (and probably just didn't want to make these all day). Whatever dude. Do you know what they used to do to magicians who gave away secrets? They didn't give them pizza. Illusion aside, this is tasty... maybe it's just salty, garlicky, buttery crust, but that combination of flavors has yet to ever disappoint.
