FAST FOOD NEWS: Papa John’s XL Dual Layer Pepperoni Pizza

Papa John s XL Dual Layer Pepperoni Pizza

Papa John’s newest pizza is doing a little cross promotion with the new Ghostbusters movie, although there’s nothing Ghostbuster-y about it. The XL Dual Layer Pepperoni Pizza features 10 slices of the chain’s hand-tossed dough covered in pizza sauce, cheese, Italian herb seasonings, a layer of premium pepperoni, and a layer of deli-style pepperoni.

Sorry, no Slimer green cheese or pepperoni shaped like the Ghostbusters’ logo. But it’ll be delivered in a Ghostbusters-themed pizza box.

The pizza is available for $12 at participating locations until July 24 or while supplies last.

A slice from the extra large pizza has 380 calories, 17 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 40 milligrams of cholesterol, 980 milligrams of sodium, 40 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 5 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried it, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
