Papa John's new, limited-time Double Cheeseburger Pizza features a pizza with "zesty burger sauce," ground beef, diced Roma tomatoes, and dill pickles.
It cost me $12 for a large.
The "zesty burger sauce" looked a bit like a bright Thousand Island or "secret sauce" but the taste more mild, creamy, and savory with very light hints of ketchup and mustard. It provided the base that underpinned the burger-ness of the pizza.
It's as if Papa John thought: "You know what makes a really great burger? No, not the beef... it's the pickles!" While they gave the pizza some crunch, they also delivered a potent sour punch plus the pickle juice added a definite tang throughout the pizza.
The tomatoes were relatively sparse, but added to the burger feel.
