Papa John’s International is kicking off summer and grilling season by introducing a new addition to the burger-pizza lineup—the Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza—with Wisconsin Cheddar, zesty burger sauce, and pickles. The large or pan limited-time-only pizza is $10, and those who want even more can enjoy Bacon Cheddarsticks for $6 more.

“Our goal every day is to provide our customers with exciting choices and varieties that reflect our promise to always make a better pizza,” says Robert Thompson, SVP of marketing at Papa John's. “We are taking our burger-pizza lineup to the next level with the Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza and adding the fan-favorite Bacon Cheddarsticks as an extra bonus.”

To help introduce the new burger-pizza, Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George is distracted by the delicious smell of Papa John’s Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza as he attempts to dunk in a game. He proceeds to float through the air and outside the stadium, following his nose all the way to the nearest Papa John’s location in a new national television campaign that will also be shared across Papa John’s social media channels.

The Bacon Cheddarburger Pizza is layered with beef, hickory-smoked bacon, dill pickle slices, fresh cut Roma tomatoes, Wisconsin Cheddar, and real cheese made from mozzarella, all layered on our zesty burger sauce.  The new Papa John’s Bacon Cheddarsticks are made with fresh dough covered with Special Garlic sauce, topped with hickory-smoked bacon, Wisconsin Cheddar, and real cheese made from mozzarella, and then baked until it’s bubbling and served with pizza sauce for dipping.

Both items will remain on the menu through June 25. Additionally, Papa John’s will continue two medium two-topping pizzas for $6.99 each and large or pan two-topping pizza for $9.99 when ordered online.
