History in the baking: Papa John’s swaps crusts for cake to celebrate 500th store opening

Popular pizza delivery chain, Papa John’s has announced the opening of its 500th store in Ormskirk on Monday 13th September. And to commemorate the occasion, the pizza chain is keeping it sweet and swapping its crusts for cake.

No celebration is complete without a cake, so Papa John’s has created three tasty hyper realistic pizza cakes and is offering a limited supply to customers free of charge.

The mouth-watering treats are based on three of Papa John’s most popular flavours, BBQ Chicken Classic, Double Pepperoni and Chilli Freak. The fresh dough, savoury toppings and rich tomato sauce has been swapped with a tasty rice krispy base covered in sweet strawberry jam and finished with icing, mimicking the delicious toppings of a Papa John’s pizza.

Giles Codd, Senior Director of Marketing for Papa John’s UK said: “We’re delighted to announce the opening of our 500th store in Ormskirk and there’s no better way to mark the occasion than handing out complimentary cakes to our loyal customers across the UK.

“What’s more, the opportunity for one of our customers to win a lifetime supply of pizza will truly be the ‘icing on the cake’!”

Papa John’s fans will need to be quick, as there is a limited run of exclusive pizza cakes on offer. Customers can be in with a chance of getting their hands on one by visiting Papa John’s

If that wasn’t enough of a reason to party, to further celebrate the occasion, one lucky customer will also be in with a chance of winning alifetime supply of Papa John’s pizza – the icing on the cake for any dough devotee.
