In the ever-changing world of Little Caesars and Dominos, it’s hard to enjoy an individual slice or two of pizza. Whatever happened to the good old days when we can head down to a local pizza parlor and purchase one individual greasy slice of meat lovers pizza with your left over allowance. Sometimes, we are not in the mood for a discounted large pie combo with a side of wings only with the purchase of one small pizza. It’s only human to want to break free from the world of bundles and combos every once in a while.
