Copycat Little Caesars Crazy Bread Recipe

It’s a little embarrassing, but we get Little Caesars Pizza way more than I’d like to admit.  I am not a huge fan of their pizza, but I can eat their Crazy Bread like there is no tomorrow!

When I came across this recipe on Mandy’s Recipe Box, I couldn’t wait to try it!  She has some of the best recipes, so I knew it would be great.  It didn’t disappoint {and now I can make a few less runs to Little Caesars}!

  1. Hi Elyse ! I would like to ask, as you would like everybody to eat at 6 pm, how the meals work in the US ?
    Because 6 pm is very early in France ! Since we took the breakfast around 6-8, the lunch at 12 and the snack at 4:30 pm... The dinner is never before 7 pm. Children couldn't take snack before because school ends at 4:30 :/
  2. Ahhh I'm so excited! They just shut down the ONLY Little Caesar's close enough for me to get to, and the only thing I like is the Crazy Bread! I had 2 coupons for it too...which I was certainly planning on using but before I knew it they were closed! Now I can have my Crazy Bread whenever I want, so exciting :)

    I've worded at LC and can tell you that crazy bread is crazy simple. You take a medium pizza crust, cut it into 8 pieces, brush it with garlic sauce and bake it like you would a pizza. When it comes out, you just sprinkle the cheese on it and bag it. So simple. The secret here is to get the recipe for their dough. Not the deep dish dough, the regular dough.
  4. I worked for Little Caesars for years. They make their own dough for pizza, cheese bread, and bread sticks. (same recipe - it is a yeast recipe but I would never be able to remember it and it yields enough to make hundreds of pizzas per batch lol). The reason it seems different is because: for cheese sticks, they take a dough ball big enough to be stretched to medium pizza size and spread it to the corners in a square pan. That way it stays thicker. All they do is use a rolling tool that puts indentions in the dough to prevent bubbling on the dough and then they put their cheese (which is a mix of mozzarella and Munster cheeses) on top of the dough. They bake it half the time the pizza takes to bake and when it's done you brush on garlic butter and sprinkle parm cheese on top. For bread sticks: they put the dough ball through a rolling, flattening machine once which elongates the dough and then onto a sheet pan where they slice it and cook half the time you would for a pizza. Once done, garlic butter and parm cheese are put on top. Their dipping sauce is the same sauce as is on the pizza.
