Papa John’s on Thursday announced the long-awaited debut of its new Epic Stuffed Crust, enhancing its original fresh, never frozen, six-ingredient crust with extra cheese that is hand-stuffed to create an epic experience for fans. To celebrate the launch, Papa John’s is treating its Papa Rewards members to an exclusive first taste of the mouthwatering new crust from December 21 through December 27.

“As we continue to develop new craveable menu offerings, we’re always inspired by our fans,” says Tom Smith, Papa John’s director of culinary innovation. “Stuffed crust lovers are passionate pizza fans, and it is something our fans continue to ask for. Since quality crust is at our core, we’re excited to deliver stuffed crust lovers an experience they’re sure to enjoy.”

The Epic Stuffed Crust delivers on taste and quality, starting with Papa John’s original dough, made from flour, water, sugar, soybean oil, salt and yeast. The dough is then hand-stuffed with extra cheese, topped with our signature pizza sauce, more cheese and the topping of your choice, and baked to a gooey, crispy, golden goodness.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 21, Papa Rewards members have a chance to try the new Epic Stuffed Crust Pizza at select locations through Dec. 27. The brand will unleash the crust nationwide for all pizza lovers to try on Dec. 28. The Epic Stuffed Crust is $12 for a large one-topping pizza with the promo code STUFFED.

This latest menu addition is only the second variation on Papa John’s original crust in 35 years, following the release of Garlic Parmesan Crust in 2019. The brand continues its commitment to menu innovation with the release of over six new products this year alone, including the Italian flatbread-style sandwich, the Papadia, Jalapeño Popper Rolls and the limited-time Shaq-a-Roni Pizza, developed in partnership with board member and franchisee Shaquille O’Neal.
