I had a pulled pork pizza about a month ago. Been having them off and on for years.

Then I remembered that town is having its annual "Pork Fest" soon, so I googled it and found out it's in a few weeks. I was not prepared to discover a thing called pork candy

/mmm, pork candy
//oh, and Papa John's sucks

As long as it's not that thin "sauce and cheese on a cracker" kind of pizza they sell in New York.

I tried one of the Pizza Hut 'Blake's BBQ' pizzas, it was surprisingly good, but not something I'd make a habit of ordering just due to how sweet it was.

That's the big problem with pretty much any chain 'BBQ' item - they always want to slather it with the thickest sweetest barbecue sauce they can find.

Will they offer it with coleslaw?

Ever had pizza in Napoli?    Worst.Pizza.Ever.    Those folks don't know what the fark they're doing.   I asked for the Meat Lovers, and they looked at me strange.  All I got was some sauce with a little cheese on top.   Oh, and basil, but not the edible kind that comes dried and sprinkled out of a jar, but big leafs ... like a weed that had been pulled from the side of the road.   They still haven't figured out that you can put cheese inside the crust.

Papa John's you say?

You can get better pizza from the dumpster behind Pizza Hut than Papa John's.

meh. if you made a vinegar based pulled pork pizza and balanced the sweet and sour it would be good. this is just another make the meat and everything sweet recipe.

Chicago style deep dish pizza > New York style thin pizza.

Neapolitan pizza > most everything else > Papa John's > This incredibly shiatty cardboard pizza I got off of a street vendor in Rome.

I found when I put pulled pork on my pizza, i had to come up with a slightly different take on the sauce.  Since I cook my pulled pork in a combination of sauces that are sweet, the base for my pizza sauce had to be a bit more spicy.    Otherwise the combination of tomato sauce, and bbq sauce, i find didn't mix well.

Discovered I make a mean sweet and sour pizza.

So, pulled pork is the latest food that is going to be ru-eened by market saturation and putting it everywhere and on everything?

Can't wait.

Actually sounds kind of good. And I like papa john's.

Of all the chain delivery pizza places, Papa Johns is the worst. I have never bought one, but I have help enough people move to have my fair share of them. I have never had a good Papa John's experience.
 
2014-08-01 09:46:41 AM  
If Papa John's had never thrown in the garlic grease so people could choke down that god forsaked crust and think they had a good experience, the chain would never have existed.

You could just use bbq sauce in place of the tomato sauce. That's what one of the local pizza places here does.

 Personally, I prefer Papa Johns over Pizza Hut (bland and greasy) or Domino's (way better than it used to be but still meh), but of course the smaller local places are usually the best.

Every Papa John's pizza tastes like one of the toppings is corn syrup. It's sickeningly sweet.

Of the chains, I like "Godfather's Pizza" the best. It's expensive as hell, though.

And, of course, I always get pizza from a local/regional place if I can help it.

Yes. Back in the early 90's when I worked at a PJ's, the pizza sauce had to be mixed in house from canned tomato sauce and a "spice bag." Reading the ingredients of said spice bag, the main ingredient was sugar.

Today, the sauce already comes prepared in cans, but the taste never changed, so I can just about gaurantee which is your sugar topping...

Whatever America may be lacking is most definitely not something that could be produced by Papa John's.

Crappy pulled pork has been shaming itself on menus for years.  It's cheap and easy to make bad pulled pork, you don't even need a smoker - just throw a pork but in a bag with some sauce and cook it until it breaks down.

Great pulled pork, butt or whole hog smoked over hardwood then roughly torn or chopped and lightly drizzled with a vinegar and hot pepper sauce, well, that's still awesome, but unfortunately 99% of the pulled pork on menus isn't like that.

Back in '97 and through 2000, Papa John's was actually pretty good. Then things changed - supply lines, I think. But for a short time, I was a big fan.

If I could get that pizza again, I'd buy it. It doesn't need pulled pork, BBQ sauce, or even that awesome garlic butter. Just the old recipe would bring me back.

They've changed the recipe on the garlic butter.  It used to be awesome, and from what I could tell consist of real garlic and real butter - now it's some partially hydrogenated chemical soup.

I am really open about pizza. I like Chicago and New York, sometimes even a frozen pizza or English muffin pizza. Tonight I have the grandkids down so I am making chilli pizza (dough, chilli, and Colby-cheddar mix on top). The only pizza that I will take a pass on though is Pappa John's, ironically because they use really cheap ingredients and it shows.

/I know, thanks for sharing.

Nothing beats gyro meat as a pizza topping.

I saw a pizza on Travel Channel that looked really good. I can't remember where the place was, but the guy was turning common sandwiches into pizzas. The Reuben pizza he made looked amazing. Corned beef, Swiss cheese, 1000 Island dressing, sauerkraut, and coriander (to give it the rye bread taste), and a pickle slice placed on each piece after it came out of the oven. I'd love to try one of those.

I wonder if it would be any good if they tried it with North Carolina style vinegar and spice based pulled pork instead of the think sugary bbq sauce they usually use on these gimmicky pizzas.  Personally I tend to stay with the simple pizzas rather than the unconventional meat additions.

What America needs is a take-out pizza chain that serves pizza that isn't half-baked - in more
than one sense of the phrase.  (At least use sausage that doesn't look like Tender Vittles.)
