From 1990 to 1993, Little Caesars sales growth ranked in the top five in the restaurant industry, according to Nation's Restaurant News Magazine. As of 1993, the company had more than 4,800 outlets raking in $2.3 billion. Business was so good that founder Michael Ilitch was able to purchase the Detroit Red Wings hockey team in 1982, and then the Detroit Tigers in 1992. Ilitch also owns several arenas and theaters, including the Second City comedy theater in Detroit.

The Crazy Sauce, basically souped up pizza sauce, is usually served with Crazy Bread, for dipping. You can get my Crazy Bread clone here.

This dang recipe is so close that I want to drink it. I agree it probably needs fennel and I'm going to try it, but even without it, this is seriously so close. I tried that other one I found on the internet and it wasn't. even. close. I think the marjoram and thyme make it so close.
