Papa John’s Heart-Shaped Pizza

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with  Heart-Shaped Pizza from Papa John’s.  Take a look:

From QSRMag:

Papa John’s announced that from February 11 through February 14, it is offering a one-topping, heart-shaped pizza on thin crust and a Cinnapie for $14.99, or two heart-shaped, thin-crust pizzas with one topping for $19.99.

“Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to spend time with the ones you love, while enjoying one of America’s favorite foods: pizza,” says Andrew Varga, Papa John’s chief marketing officer. “Our heart-shaped pizza started as a local promotion and so many customers asked for it, it has now grown into a national offering.”

    I can’t remember the blog I read the last time they did this, but I do recall that their heart was an epic fail. It didn’t quite show up as a heart shaped pizza, and it looked like it was made by a third grader. I mark this down as a neat idea, but I would pass and take a round pizza instead.

    I worked for Papa the last time we (they did this) lol. The thin-crust comes in pre-made, unlike the hand-tossed crusts which we made in-house. The thing about the heart is that it throws off the usual distribution of pep, meaning your more or less at the mercy of how much (or little) the person working the make line cares about making it “right.”

    We always cook an all “red” dinner and celebrate with the kids at home. But you did give me an awesome idea for lunch on Sunday – I will surprise them with a homemade one. Thanks.

    And I do think this is a nice touch on Papa John’s part to offer this – I am almost tempted to order it.

    So, I assume the two-pizza deal is for the single guys who will being sitting at home, eating their pizzas alone, trying to not to spill too many tears onto each slice before eating them due to the high sodium content already inherent to their pizzas?

      Even though I am married, and didn’t spend too many Hallmark Days alone, I must make a post in defense of the single guys.

      I hate to tell you, but most single guys sit at home on Hallmark Day and laugh at the rest of us. I imagine there are hardly any tears. This is a pathetic corporate holiday, and in reality, the single people win out. Me personally? I don’t need a holiday to remind me that I should express my love towards my significant other.

        Hahaha…well said Raiders.

        I agree with your unexpected and odd reply about the corporatism behind Valentine’s Day, though. Do you ever smile? I mean, even before you were married. Marriage tends not to be a smiling or laughing matter.

        THIS Raider is why my husband and I never celebrate it. We do have some fun stuff for the kids – but there are 364 other days I just assume hear that I am loved.

    Lucky for those guys, this is the NBA All Star Weekend. At least they have something to keep their minds occupied.

    Sorry for the 3rd post Grub – but wanted to let you know I made the pizzas and they came out so cute [I left a shout out on my blog for you]

    @Raiders757: How original to blab about how Valentine’s Day is a ‘corporate’ manufactured holiday’. You rebel.

  8. […] #1 — Make a homemade heart pizza. Kids love this messy stuff. I might need some deep breaths and two espressos before this happens with us. It’s cool. I’m fun. (This idea inspired by Papa John’s.) […]
