Little Caesars has been stepping up their crust game in the past year, but if you thought the pretzel pizza was the craziest they were going to get, buckle up. Beginning next week, the chain will offer a new deep-dish pie with a crust completely covered in bacon.

The Bacon Wrapped Crust DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza comes wrapped in thick-cut bacon, with even more bacon and pepperoni sprinkled on top of the cheese. It'll hit locations nationwide on February 23rd for a (regrettably) limited time only. Running at $12, this bacon-wrapped beauty is supposedly a quick-service industry first -- though if Domino's and the Hut are smart, it won't be the last. Have your cholesterol meds prepped for this trailblazer next Monday.
