An order cost me $6 and came with two cups of pizza sauce for dipping.
As you can tell from the picture, rather than sticks, my cheesesticks came cut like a pizza. It's like the employee who was cutting it had a brain fart because it looked like a pizza (I can't blame him/her; it even had an end crust) and so cut it as such.
Rather than cheesesticks, it basically felt like a sauceless, cheese pizza (which I guess some would argue is more true to an Italian pizza). The pesto added a slight hit of olive oil and a nice note of basil but the baked tang of the tomatoes brought to mind pizza sauce. Their mozzarella is rather tasteless.
Like Papa John's hand-tossed pizza, the crust was soft rather than crisp and there was too much of it for the cheese given. For cheeseticks, the crust only needs to be a vehicle for the gobs of melted cheese and that wasn't the case here.
