REVIEW: Little Caesars Crazy Puffs

There’s a product on shelves now called The Pizza Cupcake that was seen on Shark Tank. I’m not saying Little Caesars’ cupcake-looking Crazy Puffs are heavily influenced by those, but they sure seem like they were heavily influenced by those.

Little Caesars’ Crazy Puffs are available in two varieties: Pepperoni and 3 Cheese & Herb. The 3 Cheese & Herb one features four hand-held pizza puffs with mozzarella and pizza sauce topped with a buttery-garlic flavored drizzle, Italian herb, and parmesan seasoning. The Pepperoni option includes everything in the other one, plus pepperoni. I ended up picking up both because I’m crazy.

The employee handing me my order told me that these were good. I asked her which one she liked more, and without skipping a beat, she said the pepperoni one but with a little hidden-mouth action, like she didn’t want the 3 Cheese & Herb ones to hear her.

They came in a box about the size of a Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza box but much more rugged and corrugated. I guess you could think of this as individual-sized Little Caesars pizza. After eating two of both varieties, I wasn’t stuffed, but I wasn’t hungry. So, the four per order seems like the right amount for a meal for one — well, at least for me.

Looking at the Pepperoni ones from above, it seems like I might’ve been cheated out of some pepperoni, but most of the slices are under that cheese layer. As for the 3 Cheese & Herb Crazy Puffs, the Little Caesars employee was right, I enjoyed it slightly less than the Pepperoni one, but that might be the carnivore in me talking. There’s enough topping on (in?) both to ensure you don’t end up with a crust-only bite. I wish both varieties were a bit more garlicky and herby, but they are something I’d pick up again if I want the Little Caesars pizza flavor without having to buy an entire pizza.

The drizzle and seasonings add enough flavor that it’s not necessary to dip them in the included marinara tub. However, there’s a piddly amount of pizza sauce in the Crazy Puffs, so the container will come in handy if you want more of that slightly sweet, slightly acidic red sauce. The well-baked areas on the crust had some crispiness, but for the most part, the bread-y sections were soft and easy to bite through.

Overall, Little Caesars Crazy Puffs aren’t crazy good. They’re just good.

*Because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, things are a bit pricier here. You’ll probably pay less than I did.

  1. Was the Crazy Sauce included in yours? Wonder if that was a lucky mistake by your local spot. All the reviews I’v seen it wasn’t included, but should be.

      1. tyjeh asked if u wanted 2 be his gf btw can i get a double chese burger extra pickles and ca i get a side of fries and make it wii a sweet tea on the side

  2. The pepperoni one was good, but it tasted like the standard Pep pizza. I thought the 3-cheese were better, the were more garlicky and buttery.
    Only 3.99 for a four-pack on the mainland, easily worth it at a dollar a pop.
    Also, the employee who handed them to me warned me that the terribly designed box was going to try and fall apart on me (he was right!)

  3. You were full off 4? I could easily eaten 10x that and get dessert. I wish I got full off 4 though. In the meantime time I’ll stick to their large pizzas

  4. I got the pepperoni ones today and I dipped them in ranch. They were f-ing amazing. Already looking forward to getting them again.

  5. I had a order of each tonight, and they were really really good, but man are they a salt bomb.
    I noticed she didn’t put any crazy sauce in the bag and asked for it, but the only way they’d give me any is if I paid extra for it. I called a different location and inquired if sauce comes with it and they also said no.

    1. u spend $8 on crazy puffs in one meal… you should have just gotten a pizza or the slices n sticks that comes with more food and dipping sauce free.

    2. I ordered this last night I they didn’t put cheese on them don’t know why 2 pepperoni on top with a little bit of sauce no extra dipping sauce I rate a 1of 10, I should’ve ordered bread sticks instead

  6. Omg I love the crazy puff I Love the flavor I need more I hope they keep making more and more crazy puffs!!!!!!!!
