FAST FOOD NEWS: Papa John’s Philly Cheesesteak Pizza and Red Kettle Cookie


When I think of the holidays, I think of Philly Cheesesteaks. And so does Papa John’s. Oh wait. Did I say, “Philly Cheesesteaks”? I meant to say, “Many things, but not Philly Cheesesteaks.”

Papa John’s Philly Cheesesteak Pizza, not to be confused with last year’s Steak & Cheese Pizza, features a creamy garlic sauce, thin-sliced steak from the Original Philly Cheesesteak Company (a company I’ve never heard of), sliced onions, green peppers, and mozzarella and provolone cheeses on a hand-tossed crust. The pizza is available at $12 for a large.

Papa John’s is also offering for six dollars the Salvation Army Red Kettle Cookie this holiday season, a twist on their Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie. The dessert features red chocolate chips and 50 cents from each cookie sold through December 28th will go to The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign.

  1. Whatever, Domino’s has had a Philly Cheesesteak pizza for years now. How about putting a little more effort in to your ‘new’ products Papa John? It’s a shame because I really like their regular pizza, but stealing existing menu items and turning them into pizza form just seems desperate.

    1. Yes!!! Came in here just to say that! I worked at Domino’s most of college delivering and I was there when they debuted the Philly Cheesesteak pizza… I graduated 9 years ago and the philly was on the menu at least a year if not more before that. Just to put it in perspective. Like you, I’m a fan of their pizza but this does seem very lazy. Surprised they aren’t being a little more aggressive with Pizza Hut just releasing such a massive menu overhaul this week!

  2. Another reason to avoid the anti-healthcare millionaires’ pizza place, his support of the gay-hating Salvation Army.

  3. i have one question in two parts.
    Has anyone tried Papa John’s Philly Cheesesteak pizza and, if so, how was it?
    I’m a huge fan of Dominoes one but it may be fun to try PJ’s.
    I do have to say that while the football-guy ads are a bit Freshmonic, the Red Kettle cookie seems a bit of a push. Why can’t they just advertise the cookie and make anonymous donations? How big is the man’s ego anyhow?

    1. We tried the Philly cheesesteak pizza a few nights ago and we loved it. The cheesy sauce was delicious and there was a good amount of mozzarella and cheddar on top of it. Decent amount of steak and onions. Would definitely purchase again.
