3. Little Caesars Batman Pizza Calzony
For something that takes itself much less seriously, ditch Little Caesars Pizza and their take on Batman – The Batman Calzony. This one is an interesting invention that is part of pepperoni pizza and calzone, and 100% Bat-signal inspired, which you can recognize by its bat wing shape.
The Batman Calzony is basically a large pepperoni pizza topped with parmesan, pepperoni slices, plus muenster and mozzarella, made daily with freshly made dough. What’s new is its calzone-like crust around the edges, folded up and down to form the head and tail of the bat logo, which is filled with extra doses of gooey cheese and the brand signature garlic spread. It even comes with a serving of Crazy Sauce® for dipping.
