I was contacted by Papa John HQ and was asked to give my honest thoughts on the latest edition to their menu The Deep Crust !
Fresh out of the Pizza testing laboratory, this masterpiece is a force to be reckoned with if you like your base and cheese ! Twice the thickness of a regular deep pan base with an extra portion of cheese, this is a mighty fine promise. But as they said, the proof is in the pizza !
Now I know I bang on about healthy and nutritious family food but I am also a big believer in eating a little bit of what you fancy and unfortunately a takeaway is often just that ! (honesty is always the best policy right ?)
My kids are as serious about pizza as I am about my sleep, so who better to give me an honest opinion than my gang ! So HQ sent me a collection of the new Deep Crust Pizza’s to hold a pizza party and review it for you guy’s.
We usually order a Pepperoni, Hawaiian and BBQ chicken, so fortunately all of these were on the agenda as well as a plain cheese and a really meaty one. The Pizza was due to arrive at 6pm, but the doorbell went just before that, so with the children waiting like a puppy for it’s master, the door was opened before the delivery driver had time to blink, and the pizza was rushed to the table.
When the pizza is on the table and mouths are busy munching, this is probably the quietest my kitchen will ever be, so I am now at pro level at reading silence and eyebrow movements and it was all positive. Thankfully, the pizza was cut up equally and there was no moans and gripes about who had the biggest slice (Honestly, GIVE ME STRENGHT !) the toppings were plentiful and the cheese was super cheesy if that makes sense. The pickled pepperoncini is a nice touch and you get a nice dip to use with your crusts.
So with a full belly, ipad contented children and a spotless sink, as no washing up was involved ( yipeeeeeee)
I am sat at my desk ready to give you our verdict.
We all flipping loved it and we even have brekki sorted before we head off for rugby at stupid oclock, as all nine of us had to roll from the table as we didn’t manage to finish it all, which is a shocker as we normally scoff the lot.
Papa Johns also offer some fab bargains with vouchers and online offers, so have a good look for discounts before you order. The deep pan pizza will now be a fixture on our Pizza take away night, but for the moment I have the pizza sweats, so it could be a while off yet !
