Storing Tips


If you do not eat all your crazy bread, you can refrigerate any of the bread you do not eat. Just store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


You can freeze any of the bread that you do not eat. Just place in a sealed freezer bag or freezer container. Freeze for 2-3 months. Then thaw in the fridge overnight and reheat as you wish.


To reheat the homemade breadsticks, you will want to warm up in the microwave or the oven. Heat for a minute or two until it is warmed. Or you can place in the oven at 350 degrees and heat until it is warmed.

What To Serve With Little Caesars Crazy Bread
