LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Papa John’s is targeting the lunch daypart with its Papadia flatbread-style sandwich. The oven baked Papadias come in four varieties served with a pepperoncini and a sauce of choice on the side.
- The Italian features Alfredo sauce, spicy Italian sausage, salami, mozzarella and banana peppers served with a pizza sauce dipping cup.
- The Philly Cheesesteak comes with fresh-cut onions and green peppers, mozzarella and Papa John’s Philly sauce. The sandwich is served with a Garlic sauce dipping cup.
- Grilled BBQ Chicken & Bacon includes grilled chicken, bacon, fresh-cut onions and mozzarella. The sandwich is drizzled with sweet and smoky barbecue sauce and served with a barbecue sauce dipping cup.
- Meatball Pepperoni is filled with spicy meatballs, pepperoni, pizza sauce, mozzarella and classic Italian seasoning with a Pizza sauce dipping cup on the side.
“The Papadia is inspired by the ‘piadina,’ an Italian folded flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy. It combines the original Papa John’s crust people crave along with fresh toppings, making it the best of both worlds — it’s both a pizza and a sandwich,” Paul Fabre, senior vice president of Product Innovation at Papa John’s. “The Papadia is great for people on the go who are looking to mix up their traditional lunch routine.”
