PIZZA - it’s one of the simplest meals you’re ever going to eat, and but so easy to get wrong if it’s not on point.
Yet the good people at Papa John’s new restaurant in High Street, Newport Pagnell, provided exactly what we needed on a cold Tuesday night.
There are hundreds of takeaways in Milton Keynes, so why would you choose this one? Because if you’re hungry or want to feed an army, Papa John’s provide the largest pizza in town – literally.
The Extra Extra Large pizza is 15 inches in diameter compared to the largest offerings across town of around 12 ins, but the extra really does make the difference.
I had never eaten a Papa John’s pizza before, but I certainly will again. And their Two-for-Tuesday offer is on hand for the really hungry, or those wanting breakfast the next day.
We were delivered, on time and still hot, five of the XXL pizzas, priced at a reasonable £15.99 each, showing us the wide array of toppings on offer. We enjoyed All The Meats (ham, pepperoni, sausage, bacon, spicy beef), Chicken BBQ, the Hawaiian Special, The Works (pepperoni, Italian style sausage, ham, mushrooms, green peppers, onions, black olives) and the vegetarian option, The Garden (red onions, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn, mushrooms) – not to mention potato wedges, chicken dippers and wings on the side.
The Original base was deep and doughy, with a thinner option available, the toppings were full of flavour and there was something for everyone to enjoy.
Papa John’s give us a feast fit, and large enough, for a king – a king who didn’t fancy cooking for himself after work.
