"We are taking our burger-pizza lineup to the next level with the Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza and adding the fan-favorite Bacon Cheddarsticks as an extra bonus."
To help introduce the new burger-pizza, Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George is distracted by the delicious smell of Papa John's Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza as he attempts to dunk in a game. He proceeds to float through the air and outside the stadium, following his nose all the way to the nearest Papa John's location in a new national television campaign that will also be shared across Papa John's social media channels.
The Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza is layered with beef, hickory-smoked bacon, dill pickle slices, fresh cut Roma tomatoes, Wisconsin Cheddar and real cheese made from mozzarella all layered on our zesty burger sauce. The new, mouthwatering Papa John's Bacon Cheddarsticks are made with fresh dough covered with Special Garlic sauce, topped with hickory-smoked bacon, Wisconsin Cheddar and real cheese made from mozzarella, and then baked until it's bubbling with irresistible flavor and served with pizza sauce for dipping.
