Have you heard about the guy who a married pizza? Yup, true story. Google it if you don't believe me. Now I wouldn't marry pizza but I do love it quite a bit and today I'm reviewing a pizza chain that needs no introduction - Papa Johns Pizza! I always felt that brand pizza chains are over hyped and their pizzas are overpriced and mediocre but Papa Johns sure proved me wrong because I had an excellent meal and a very satisfying pizza experience!
I started my meal with the Cheesesticks which are basically pizza dough topped with generous amounts of Mozzarella cheese served with dipping sauce. It's served to look like a cheese only pizza but tastes like garlic bread with lots of cheese. This one is really really good and I totally recommend it if you're dining or ordering from Papa Johns. I'm craving it again while I write this post!
This is how the Cheese sticks are served.
I also had the chicken wings because I am obsessed with wings. Its one of my all time favorite finger foods and I whip up a mean batch at home too. So what delighted me the most about the wings here was that they're not the usual sweet and sticky barbeque style but instead are baked wings that are marinated with spices and served with barbeque sauce on the side. These were nice and spicy and even my mom really liked them though she usually detests wings.
Moving on the pizza, I had the Chicken Super Papas in a thin crust which came with everything you want on a pizza - chicken tikka, chicken salami, spicy Italian chicken sausage, onions, capsicum, mushrooms and black olives(which weren't available when I went) layered on top of pizza sauce with lots of mozzarella. What I loved about the pizza was that they were generous with the toppings so each bite was very fulfilling. Also, their pizza sauce is not overpowering with tomato flavor so you really get to savor the taste of the toppings!
Lots of chicken, veggies and cheese in every bite!
I went to the outlet in SB road in Pune and had a great time and really liked their food. The service was pretty good too so I totally recommend Papa John's Pizza the next time you're pizza craving comes up!
