Little Caesars barbecue-themed Smokehouse Pizza features a large, round pizza layered with the chain’s own blend of mozzarella and Muenster cheeses, topped with beef brisket, pulled pork, crumbles of applewood-smoked bacon and barbecue sauce. The crust gets a little extra attention with a dusting of smokehouse seasoning.

The limited time pizza can be found at participating locations any time of the day for $9. It’s also available Hot-N-Ready from 4 p.m to 8 p.m.

Eric, aka The Endorsement was able to pick one up at his local Little Caesars before the national launch on Monday, February 27, 2017.

Opening The Box

While there was no denying the smokehouse aroma, the pizza itself was noticeably lacking in several critical departments, including cheese, meats and sauce. The classic Little Caesars cheese pull was nonexistent and the smokehouse seasoned crust turned out to be a major disappointment with none of the much anticipated smoky flavor to be found anywhere. The pizza was plagued by numerous quality issues, which Eric details in his full YouTube review below.

Eric's Smokehouse Pizza turned out to be a disappointment, however, there's good reason to believe the quality control issue may be isolated. For example, Ian over at Peep THIS Out! was also able to put one to a taste test. While Ian's experience turned out to very different, it wasn't without its faults.
