Review: Grilled Chicken Margherita Pizza from Papa John’s

The first and only time I can remember trying a Papa John’s pizza on thin crust was that abomination known as the Heart Shaped Pizza on Valentine’s Day 2013.  That thin crust was bad enough to make me avoid it since then.  Papa John’s recently released their new Grilled Chicken Margherita Pizza on thin crust and it seemed interesting enough to review with hopes to erase the bad memory.

IMG_3847Papa John’s describes their new Grilled Chicken Margherita Pizza like this:

With grilled all white meat chicken, fresh cut Roma tomatoes, basil pesto sauce, mozzarella and pizza sauce, all on our crispy thin crust.  It tastes light, it tastes fresh, and it’s perfect for summer.

So Papa John’s is aiming for “light” and “fresh” and from the ingredients list, that looks to be on the right track for the most part.  I am a little concerned with the combo of basil pesto sauce and pizza sauce, and of course the thin crust… let’s review.

Review: Loaded Italian from Arby’s

Nearly six years ago we published a review of the Classic Italian Toasted Sub from Arby’s.  A lot has changed at Arby’s since then including some noticeable quality upgrades.  Since I didn’t write that review from 2009 and the Classic Italian Toasted Sub has been updated to become the new Loaded Italian, it’s worthy enough for me to take a closer look and give it a proper GrubGrade review.
Loaded Italian
 Arby’s describes their new Loaded Italian sandwich like this:
You might want to sit down. This could take a while. We took the best of the Italian meats – ham, salami, and pepperoni, sliced them up thin, then stacked them higher than feasibly possible with melted Swiss cheese. But we didn’t stop there. We piled banana peppers, lettuce, tomato, and red onion on there too, and drizzled it all with a red wine vinaigrette, topped with garlic aioli, all on a toasted Italian roll. OK, you can get up now.​
Yes, Arby’s has the meats and the Loaded Italian features three of them.  Recently we’ve covered roast turkey, smoked brisket, and of course roast beef.  The Loaded Italian has ham which is familiar to recent Arby’s sandwiches like the Brown Sugar Bacon & Pit Smoked Ham Sandwich, but it also features salami and pepperoni which we rarely see featured.
