Papa John’s XL Twin-Layer Pepperoni Pizza

Who you gonna name? Nobody. It’s 2016: nobody calls anybody,
anymore. However I DID order the brand new “Ghostbusters” themed pizza from Papa John’s
on-line. No human interplay, and inside 30-40 minutes it was at my door.

I’ve been bustin’ ghosts for the reason that 80s, the proof is there.
The unique Ghostbuster’s films and cartoon have been an essential a part of my
childhood. And I’m excited to see this new one with the LADIES. I suppose I’m a
little extra open-minded than some. However, this pizza made me really feel like a SUCKER.
There’s nothing Ghostbustery about it. And I pleasure myself on being a kind of
free-thinking, not-a-slave-to-marketing sorts. The field was only a pizza field,
not inexperienced like ectoplasm, no candy footage of them busting a ghost and cramming
it into “the lure.”  Nothing. I used to be
instantly disenchanted on supply, just because this gimmick was only a
solution to push crappy pizza on individuals. And Papa Johns isn’t the one side-piece
this new Ghostbusters film has, automobile insurance coverage commercials, drink commercials,
it doesn’t finish. Moreover, Ghostbuster’s is about in New York Metropolis, hiya?! A metropolis
that by no means stops speaking about how allegedly good it’s pizza is (that’s a rant
for an additional time), no one is ordering Papa Johns with a pizza store on each
nook. It’s like listening to a Queen tune in a automobile industrial… I died somewhat bit
inside once I acquired this pizza. 

Now, for the sake of equity, I’ve to confess one thing
earlier than writing the remainder of this. I don’t even like Papa Johns. I dwell in
Boston, the place there are additionally pizza outlets on each nook, and I at all times go for
mother’n’pop. One of many essential causes for that is that you simply at all times spend extra on
these “quick meals pizzas” than you do at a domestically owned pizzeria. It’s
baffling. This “Ghostbusters” Twin Layer XL Pepperoni pizza is marketed at
$12 bucks. But by some means, pairing that with a 20oz soda, it involves $25. If I
wished to spend that a lot on pizza, I may get high 3 of all-time stage pizza.
And I’m not choosing on Papa Johns right here, all these locations are precisely the identical,
Dominos particularly. Have you ever ever ordered from Dominos and never had it’s $30?
Personally, IF I’m in a spot and must go along with a sequence pizza, I’ll go along with
Pizza Hut or Papa Gino’s… for some cause, they’re simply higher in their very own
methods. Now since I’m already a bit biased entering into to this, I’ll record the professionals
and cons as they pertain to me, and I’ll let individuals suppose for themselves  (ooh scary).
Execs: Although I wouldn’t order it once more, I’ve had worse
pizza. Aesthetically it seemed first rate. And I did benefit from the high layer of
pepperonis, that are the bigger superball sized ones. I’m a little bit of a purist
relating to pizza, although I benefit from the odd eclectic or adventurous topping,
my go-to will at all times be pepperoni, and I like when locations use the large ones. It
was cooked effectively, and delivered in a well timed method.
Cons: One in every of my greatest criticisms for pizza chains
(Dominos, Papa Johns, Little Ceasars) is their components. It simply tastes so
unhealthy for you, like chemically. The crust tastes like (and has a touch of a style
of) paper. Even when it’s doughy inside, the surface is a complete bummer. The sauce
is by some means a mix of bland, candy, and acidic. It additionally by no means tastes
recent, it tastes frozen. Each chew was a disappointing, heartburn inducing,
journey of remorse. Additionally the scale of it! HOW DARE they name this an “XL” pizza.
I severely want I’d measured it. I’m 99% certain it’s smaller than a LARGE at
Pizza Hut, and if not, it’s definitely no larger. And at any self-respecting
pizza place, it might be a medium. They need to name this the “Ghostbuster’s
False Promoting Pizza”, every pie comes with a free kick to your inner-child’s

The most important disappointment right here: the missed
alternative. This can be a HUGE nostalgia piece. The place are the collectable glass
cups with ghosts and ‘busters on them? The place is the flowery packing containers that appear to be
they’ve been slimed? Or all colourful and lazery? WHERE IS THE DAMN PESTO
PEPPERONI PIZZA? SOMETHING?! All this pizza did was remind me that issues have been
higher once I was 8 years outdated, and it’s all been downhill from there. Thanks
Papa Johns… you simply crossed the streams.
