Papa John's Steak and Cheese Pizza is their latest limited-time creation. It's topped with a mix of both pizza sauce and creamy garlic parmesan sauce, marinated steak slices, mozzarella cheese, and Italian herb seasoning.
A large-sized pizza is available for $11 (or $10 if you take advantage of their early week special, which runs Monday through Wednesday)
I have to point out that this is not a "Cheesesteak Pizza" and it really should be called a "Steak Pizza" rather than a Steak and Cheese Pizza. It's not like we call a pepperoni pizza, a "pepperoni and cheese pizza." As far as limited-time pizzas go, just steak alone is rather uninspired.
I asked that my order be baked "well done." Now I've gotten my pizza from Papa John's well done before and the results were good, but this time, it was bad. The dough was overcooked so that even the crumb was dry and chewy. You can see from the pictures that the crust is so dry that it cracked where they cut it. Basically, it was like a cracker-dry thin crust, except it was thick.
Steak coverage was pretty uneven however. Some slices had a fair distribution of steak where most bites would have some steak in it, but some slices had maybe two or three pieces and ended up tasting like cheese pizza. Considering that steak was the only topping, there needed to be plenty of steak and there wasn't.
The Italian herb seasoning seemed to be MIA, but fortunately I always ask for a packet or two whenever I get Papa John's.
