Two nights ago, my son was craving Papa John's Pizza. I had never eaten it. I usually make my own, from scratch pizza, and it is awesome, but I said okay. He ordered, it was delivered and it tasted like cardboard, actually cardboard might taste better! Anyone agree or are my taste buds way out of line?
Are you sure you didn't bite the box?
I like Papa Johns its better than some and not as good as others.
Philly Cheese Steak Pizza by Dominos. Love it.
then Pizza Mia by Pizza Hut
Lastly Papa Johns - The Works (Perfect Pan Crust) -- try that, it is good.
I prefer Dominos.
Philly Cheesesteak Pizza actually sounds pretty good! What is on it? What kind of cheese?
Just looked online-found alot of recipes for philly cheesesteak pizza- going to make one tonight-
left over roast beef, chopped up into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
8 ounces of mushrooms
3 Tablespoons of worcesteshire sauce
Carmelize onions-add and saute bell peppers and mushrooms together, til tender. Add roast beef and worcesteshire sauce, heat through and drain excess liquid from pan
8 ounces of mozarella and 8 ounces of provolone, mixed
Use your favorite pizza dough brush with olive oil and spread some crushed garlic across the top-bake about 5-10 minutes-usually at 375 degrees- spread the roast beef and onion mixture across dough, then add the cheese- finish baking in the oven about 10 more minutes. Sounds awesome!
thin sliced steak, - beef, cheese, mushrooms and peppers
I see you've got the recipe
Haha - nice job locating the recipe - Enjoy
Yeah, it's not very good.
My problem with pizza is that most places make the thick crust, which turns out like eating half-raw dough, what kind of pizza is that?! I always order the thin crust for myself, everyone else can have their ball of dough crust.
I like Domino's.
And there's a little local place here called Mr. Gatti's.
Best pizza around, and they have an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes pizza, salad, and even some "dessert" pizzas that are almost as good as apple or cherry pie.
Gatti's is a chain with 140+ locations.
Wait, isn't gatti italian for cats? Do you really want to order from a place called Cats' ?
Wow. I didn't know that. Thanks for the info!
Rock on, Mr. Gatti's!
I am not sure I agree that cardboard would taste better, having had both! I can agree that a home made pizza made from scratch is way better then just about anything you can get delivered to the door
For some reason, men in their 20's and 30's seem to love Papa John's (at least my son and his friends do). Sorry, but it was gross! I don't even think the cheese was real cheese or is that just the way all fast food pizza tastes? Actually, have never had cardboard, but thought it might taste similar!
There aren't any chain pizzarias that I like. Usually the best ones are local shops that have been in the business for a long time.
Totally agree. "Chain" pizzas are nothing but massed produced, flavored cardboard. No offense intended to Papa and the others. I guess there's a market for everything after all, some people will buy the Chevy Volt.
I don't think it's the worst but it is at the bottom. I had a special pizza from a joint a few blocks away that also serves chicken (my 1st warning). It came from a hotel flyer and I could not even finish one piece. Those mom & pops that fix other unrelated foods and pizza are the ones to avoid. Papas is no good either. At least Pizza Hut charges you more and you get a somewhat decent pizza, not great but decent.
I'll have to remember this.
I keep seeing the Papa John commercials on TV and wanted to try one, but we don't have one locally. I thought if I was ever near one, I'd try it, but maybe now I'll pass.
None of the chains are good. Papa Johns though is particularly awful. I get free coupons frequently; I donate them to homeless shelters.
I'm expecting an angry mob of homeless to attack my home some night.
I call it mafia meal. It adds stomach problems if you have any. It adds weight problems, because too much melted cheese and half cooked dough with it could sit in your stomach forever. It gives your stomach asidity like hell. It's not cheap if you order it. And other than some chicken or beef protein and some mushrooms and peppers if they put any on top, what kind of nutrition value in it? Well, if it's fresh and you are hungry and it smells good, who cares that you are going to have bloated stomach later? We have lots of pepto-bismol or whatever-gizmo pills on the market to give you a relief. Hurray, civilization, go ahead, eat your pizza.
My son had to take Tums in the middle of the night with Papa John's- guess that proves your point!
BTW-the philly cheesesteak pizza was awesome! Made my own crust and the veggies were actually my favorite part- also added some cherry tomatoes, uncooked and chopped in half. Recommend sharp provolone! Makes all the difference! Had it with a spinach salad with red wine vinegar and olive oil dressing- kind of used the 'pizza' as a dipping tool for the salad dressing. That is just what Italians do, I guess!
Wow, I have to tell you I have heard some really bad things about Papa John's Pizza. Every person I know who has tried it has just shaken their head and made a face. So I have stayed away from both that and Domino's. I try to just go to pizza hut if I want outside pizza, otherwise I usually make my own. It's worth all the work to have a really good pizza.
Wow! You must've just had someone new on the job make that pizza because Papa Johns is delicious! But if you're generally a healthy person you probably wouldn't be a fan anyway. They have giant grease piles on their pizza and it's delicious. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Lol!
I gotta say, Domino's has really improved. It used to be that the only reason that you would buy Domino's is because it was the cheapest pizza and they delivered quick when you're hungry.
It's true, Papa John's is pretty awful. I'm lucky enough to live in a small town with a large population of first or second generation Italian-Americans, many of whom have opened up small pizzerias, so I don't have to eat that crap pizza from Papa John's, Dominoes, or Pizza Hut.
