Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the cheeses used in Little Caesar's Italian cheese bread?
From some of the comments of former employees that wrote in to our first recipe, the cheeses you will need to use are muenster, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
What ingredients are missing in your copycat recipes that the store brand has?
Typically you'll notice a little difference in taste just because some of the chemicals that are added to some of the storebought brand. A lot of times ingredients like MSG or other preservatives are added to commercially prepared foods. Real food doesn't contain those so you might notice a slight difference in taste because these are omitted.
What type of premade bread dough do you recommend using?
This is really personal to you. You can use canned pizza dough, a loaf of frozen premade bread and any brand of butter or cheese you want. It really is personal to you and your taste preferences. I would use natural and organic ingredients as much as possible. But this is definetely a "splurge day" recipe. 🙂
