Papa Johns Pizza – Bend Oregon


Papa Johns

Do you ever get tired of Pizza? I don’t. Just like Mexican food, I’d eat pizza daily if the wife would allow it. For delivery I like the Run Little Piggy from Pizza Mondo. For a quick slice I’ll go to Cibelli’s on the West side then head to my friend’s nearby basement for some pong. But I can’t just keep writing reviews of Cibelli’s and Pizza Mondo. I have to branch out. I do this for you, my loyal readers. All six of you.

So while I was doing chores around the house this weekend, which means I was flipping between the Florida / Alabama game and the Duke / Michigan game as the wife was out running errands. She wont know, she never reads this blog. Anyway, I realized that it was getting late and I hadn’t eaten yet. I wanted some pizza but not from the usual spots as I needed something to write about today. So I searched at Google for pizza, bend oregon.

I browse through the listings and decided on Papa Johns. Their website showed that had some specials which seemed quite good. I selected the family special (large speciality pizza and a large 2-topping pizza for only $17.99) thinking that I’d have left overs for a few days. It took about 45 minutes for the pizzas to arrive and I dove right in.

I grab a slice of each and take a bite of the large two topping – pepperoni and pineapple on thin crust. It was dry and only had a few pieces of pineapple. The crust tasted and felt like card board. I wouldn’t go thin crust at Papa Johns again.

My second slice was from the large specialty pizza – The Meats – pepperoni, sausage, bacon and ham on regular crust, extra sauce, and cooked well done. I do like that you have options on how you want it cooked. I avoid most national chain pizza places mostly because the pizza is never fully cooked. I hate doughy pie.

The Meats was decent. The extra sauce was a big help and it was cooked well done like I asked. I like pork products and there were plenty on here. The bacon was hiding under the cheese and was pretty good. I’d probably order this one again if I was forced to order Papa Johns again. I’m pretty sure ordering Papa Johns was a one time thing that I wanted to try…just for you guys. I give and give.

I have to give honorable mention to the garlic butter sauce that came with each pizza. That shit is like crack! I dipped my crust in it like cookies in milk. I tried to soak up as much garlic buttery goodness as I could. I went back for another slice and instead of picking the slice with more toppings and less crust, I went for the most crust possible just so I could clog my arteries with more crack butter. I’m hooked. That’s how they get you.

Don’t forget about me! You have 7 loyal readers. BTW, I think you learned a lesson. Mondo Pizza is the only way to go.

Those pizzas are ugly. I run a Papa John's and wouldn't even allow those to be sent out based on appearance alone! Uneven topping distribution and terribly uneven crusts. Sorry your PJ experience was so bad! 🙁 I was just doing a google search for a Papa John's approved red phone, though. lol 😀
