Review: Papa John's - Cinnapie

Papa John's Cinnapie is a dessert option at the pizza chain and is basically a baked pizza crust topped with cinnamon and brown sugar streusel and drizzled with sugary icing.

One Cinnapie set me back $4.00.

Opening the box, my Cinnapie was really not what I expected when I first read the description. For one, I thought it would be more bready and thicker. Instead, it was thin, overcooked, and chewy. Like, really chewy, and dry to boot.

Secondly, I imagined "streusel" as the stuff you find on a coffee cake which is little clumps of brown sugar, flour, and butter. Here, I got a little brown sugar and cinnamon mashed and melted into the pizza dough... and oats?! Why are there bits of rolled oats?! They don't really add anything to the Cinnapie and are just kinda there.

Basically, when it comes down to it, I would rather have toast a piece of bread with butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top over Papa John's Cinnapie. I would also rather have an untoasted piece of bread with butter and cinnamon sugar over Papa John's Cinnapie. Sufficed to say, I did not enjoy the Cinnapie.
