Review of Papa Johns Papadias In 2022
My favorite pizza restaurant, Papa Johns, is succeeding most with their new Papadias, whereas your favorite pizza shop is still stuck in the year 2000 and adding additional toppings to the dough. These were tried back in July & definitely performed well enough to be made available all around the country. They were inspired by piadina, a flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy. You’re welcome, test markets!
I was surprised to see that ALL four flavors—Italian, Philly Cheesesteak, Grilled BBQ Chicken and Bacon, and Meatball Pepperoni—made it through, but I’m assuming with some degree of certainty that the Philly Cheesesteak, which featured prominently on all posters and other materials, was the crowd favorite.
I’ll get right to the point: These hybrid sandwiches and pizzas are real phenomena. I’ve had numerous Subway flatbread sandwiches, but they simply fall short of the fantastically springy flatbread made with Papa John’s fresh, never-frozen dough.
It seems sensible that this portable shape would be suitable for a meal. The consistent fold-over made it quite simple to grip and ensure that it wouldn’t unravel. There was no prospect of my eating the top instead of the bottom by accident and causing a mess. My fingers just had the bearable, controllable dustiness which comes with eating Papa Johns pizza; there wasn’t much oil left behind.
Also extremely impressive to me was the quantity of food at $6 per person. One of the very few instances, the size of a meal in the press images truly matched the size in real life!
Double Cheeseburger In Papa Johns
14 pounds of seasoned meat, a zesty burger sauce, dill pickles, and special cheese. accompanied by a tangy burger dipping sauce.
Recently, cheeseburger pizzas have captured my attention. You ask why? My answer is, “WHY NOT?”
New Double Cheeseburger from Papa Johns promo code Additionally hurting my cause is Papadia. The seasonal Double Cheeseburger pizza option was once again offered when it first went on sale. Both are only available until December 27!
The pickles in the Papa Johns version particularly piqued my interest because not many cheeseburger pizzas come with this divisive brined fruit. Since it tastes somewhat pickle-forward, if you enjoy pickles you’ll probably like this.
If your Papa Johns doesn’t scrimp on the carne, it could be less pickle-y to you. Although it promises to be the meatiest Papadia ever, the pickle slices and creamy burger sauce, which is really just a thousand island dressing, smothered the quarter pound of ground beef. The Italian one tasted much more like actual meat.
The absence of tomatoes, which the pizza version of this dish contains, was a nice touch. The hot take is that tomato pieces or slices don’t belong on cheeseburger pizzas or, for that matter, on any authentic cheeseburger.
I also didn’t even touch the extra cup because there was already so much sauce. Please give me the garlic butter instead.
So, I gave it another go, following the directions above and switching to double meat (with no additional payment on the app!) with garlic butter on the side. With the changes, it came very close to unseating my favorite taste, meatball pepperoni, but not quite. I’m sticking with what I know works because it’s also only accessible for a short period of time.
Papa Johns Grilled Buffalo Chicken
Buttermilk ranch buffalo sauce, grilled chicken, onions, trademark cheese, and three kinds of cheese. accompanied by a cup for ranch dipping.
A new Papa Johns Papadia with a Buffalo chicken taste has just arrived on the menu. Although Buffalo wings were the inspiration, it required much more tangy heat to live up to that! I had visions of pools of pepperoni grease in the meager dabs of Buffalo sauce. Of course, pepperoni is absent.
The taste that stood out most was cheese. The cheese mixture and ranch tasted like alfredo sauce, which is delicious but very different from spicy wings. I didn’t bother with an extra cup on the side as I completed all of this without dipping it into the ranch sauce.
Onion pieces were also rather obvious. However, because of all the cheese, it lost out in terms of flavor to the grilled chicken.
If you’re unsure what to get but still want something that will be consistently good, go with the Grilled Buffalo Chicken Papadia. But don’t expect a strong Buffalo flavor when you enter.
I would advise you to try it right away, but I’m not sure if this flavor only available for a short period of time or if simply the $6 price is restricted till 10/25.
Papa Johns Pepperoni Meatball
Pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, spicy meatballs, and traditional Italian spice. served with a cup for dipping pizza sauce.
This one resisted being put down. I didn’t know what to expect because I never get meatballs like a topping at Papa John’s. The beef and pig meatballs, which were simple to bite into and didn’t have any bizarre rough parts or gamey qualities, had a decent taste and a pleasing overall texture. And the pepperoni made these better!
The meatballs also divided in half, which aided in distribution and made sure that everything remained within the flatbread (I always got bits with meatballs and/or pepperoni). However, I was a little let down that the meatballs weren’t genuinely hot. Fortunately, there isn’t a need for Alka-Seltzer! Did someone make a spicy meatball reference? Overall, this Papadia was just as tasty as a meatball sub but without the mess.
Papa Johns Bacon & Grilled BBQ Chicken
Bacon, mozzarella, freshly chopped onions, and grilled chicken. It has a sweet & smoky BBQ sauce poured over it. accompanied by a cup for dipping BBQ sauce.
I picked up on the fragrance of this one right away. Although extremely strong, the BBQ sauce appreciated! The plentiful amounts of mild mozzarella, salty bacon, & sharp onion strips counteracted the sweetness and smokiness of the BBQ sauce. The first comparison I made was that it was much simpler to consume than a Carl’s Jr. Western Bacon Cheeseburger. Once more, is there a version of a different favorite that has LESS MESS? YAS.
Hot Italian sausage, salami, mozzarella, & banana peppers in Alfredo sauce. served with a cup for dipping pizza sauce.
I adore Italian sandwiches because of the complex aromas of the cold sliced meat offset by the crisp freshness of the banana peppers. Because the flavors and textures were all warm or cooked, I found the Papadia interpretation to be a little lost.
It blended so well that I completely missed the Alfredo sauce! Furthermore, the spicy Italian sausage and salami blended together so well that it was impossible to taste the salami flavor. Again, there is no heat. I was fortunate to be able to receive some fervor from the traditional pepperoncini fixing on the side. I could certainly taste the tart banana pepper from a textural standpoint, but I was craving more crunch!
fresh-cut green peppers, mozzarella, fresh-cut onions, and the chain’s Philly sauce. served with a cup for dipping in garlic sauce.
The flavor was distinctly a Philly cheesesteak, with a strong emphasis on green bell pepper & onion. However, the texture of a “sliced” Philly steak was my main complaint. Sliced is a misnomer since it reminded me of ground beef, and I had trouble getting over that. Even though I’m not from Philadelphia, I know that’s heresy. The taste was unable to compensate for the texture error. Even if the texture were perfect, the flavor would not outperform the other flavors in terms of flavor intensity.
The sauce on the side was the one thing I thought was superfluous across the board, aside from personal choice for flavors and textures. All the Papadias were quite saucy and didn’t require any further affection.
I wouldn’t shocked if Hutadias and Domdias appeared shortly, given how tasty and practical this invention is.
