“There’s a lot of fan love for Papa John’s signature Garlic Sauce, so we knew our first-ever innovation of our original crust had to feature it,” Paul Fabre, senior vice president of menu strategy and innovation at Papa John’s, said. “The new Garlic Parmesan Crust comes with our famous Garlic Sauce and artisan Parmesan-Romano cheese baked into the crust. As always, Garlic Parmesan Crust pizzas come with our classic Garlic Sauce and pepperoncini in the box.”

This crust innovation is a reflection of the company’s focus on bringing craveable products to customers made with quality ingredients.

“Papa John’s is all about quality, and we don’t put anything on the menu that doesn’t meet our standards. It’s the first time we’re adding flavor to our fresh, never-frozen original dough and we are doing it with high quality ingredients that our guests love,” Fabre said. “As we continue to evolve and grow our business, we’re working to innovate more than ever while maintaining our commitment to quality.”

The Garlic Parmesan 1-topping pizza is now available nationwide for $10 with promo code CHEESYCRUST by phone, PapaJohns.com, the Papa John’s app, Facebook, Apple TV or by asking Alexa.
