Thinking back to my younger days, when I was working at a summer camp in the Laurentians (mid-to-late '70s) we got this pizza from a little tiny place in St. Jerome. I must have been very hungry or it was the best pizza I ever had, because I remember eating 6 pieces of a Jumbo -- it was half the pizza. I don't think I could eat more than 3 pieces today.

It can, and it is. Much worse. Think of the difference between Pizza Pizza (which is pretty bad pizza) and deli counter pizza from a bargain grocery store like Food Basics (which qualifies as pizza only in the most broad definitions). Little Caesers is somewhere between the two on the pizza continuum.

EDIT: This is ridiculous. I just went to LC's website to see if anything's changed since I last ate there. They have a list of signature pizzas paired with descriptions. Under "Cheese Pizza" (which is just a regular cheese pizza) they have the following explanation:

* This specialty item is offered in select markets. Contact your local Little Caesars Pizza restaurant for availability.

It's a cheese pizza! This is a pizza franchise! I'm at a loss. Facepalm

Must be a Canada-ification then. Here in PA, LC is pretty decent. It's not hand tossed of course, but for cheap and fast it can't be beat....

The problem with Little Caesar's now is that since their $5 pizza became so popular that is the focus of their business now. There are drive-thru Little Caesars here in Calgary (1 that I know of). So it's become more fast food than actual quality food. Their pizza are allegedly not even fresh. Apparently, they are frozen and delivered to the store, then cooked and put under a heat lamp.

Still hand made here in PA. Cooked in the same conveyor belt oven as Costco.

FYP.

Costco is pretty tight though.

I have to disagree with you on Little Caesars. Certainly miles above Pizza Pizza. A one topping large here costs $5.

Natch.

I actually did today. Wasn't in the mood for steak.

But, come on, 5 bucks for a pizza? Isn't this whole thread about a 46 dollar pizza?

Actually it's about $46 for TWO pizzas.

Just think...in the States, that $46 could have got 9 large Little Caesar pizzas. But then the heart surgery would cost about $35K. Here, that same surgery is free. Such are the tradeoffs, I suppose.

I've had pizza from a couple of Lorenzo's. There was one near my old place (York and King Edward) that was amazing. I always got steak, artichokes, and tomato. The large medium pie in its box felt like about 10 pounds.

The other Lorenzo's that I ordered from was nothing like it. Not bad, just not memorable. Are they a chain? The sign at the other place even looked completely different, and the pizza was definitely nothing like it.

I used to love the Lorenzo's in Brittania. Not sure if it's even there anymore. It always came with a ball of bread in the middle. Good times.

The one on Queen Mary call themselves the "Original" Lorenzo's. Completely different. I liked it when I lived around there.
