Papa John’s UK Plumbs New Depths With Its New Deep-Crust Pie
The cheese-smothered Deep Crust pizza is twice as deep as a regular Papa John’s pie.
In the U.K., Papa John’s has rolled out an unusually deep deep-crust pie that has to be made in a specially designed pan.
Papa John’s in the UK has rolled out a deep-crust pie that’s twice as deep as a regular pie—and smothered it in cheese, just for good measure.
“The specially formulated recipe features a buttery, seared crust for a fuller flavor and a light and fluffy, deeper dough, almost double the depth of regular Papa John’s pizza,” the company said in a statement.
The Papa John’s Deep Crust pizza is made in a specially designed pan and features a new sauce recipe, plus a full extra cup of cheese, spread all the way to the edge of the dough for a nicely caramelized, crispy cheese crust.
The brand offered free slices at the Camden Papa John’s earlier this week. A whole pizza sells for £10.99 through November 26.
In the U.S., Papa John’s debuted its first pan pizza last year. Chief Ingredient Officer Sean Muldoon said it took more than a year and a half to develop the recipe, which required some locations to install new technology to allow for its preparation methods.
