Come on people….what you thought pizza was good for you?  From The New York Daily News

What Papa John’s doesn’t want you to know about its pizza

The chain keeps those ‘better ingredients’ it advertises a secret and, when asked by a journalist and customer repeatedly for answers, Papa John’s did not deliver.

Information about the ingredients in Papa John’s pizza cannot be found online or in stores.

Food companies understand that Americans are increasingly interested in buying food that actually seems worth eating. We want food that’s some degree of fresh, healthy, natural or otherwise of higher quality. It’s for this reason that you see images of plump fruit decorating packages of cereal bars and the greenest broccoli you’ve ever laid eyes upon appearing on boxes of frozen dinners. At Burger King, you don’t order a mere salad – it’s a Chicken Caesar Garden Fresh Salad. Those chips aren’t just cheese-flavored — they’re Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips, with “harvest cheddar” an entirely meaningless term.

Few companies have applied this appeal more literally than Papa John’s, which for years has boasted “Better pizza. Better ingredients.” Printed on every Papa John’s pizza box is a little story: “When I founded Papa John’s in 1984, my mission was to build a better pizza,” says “Papa” John Schnatter. “I went the extra mile to ensure we used the highest quality ingredients available – like fresh, never frozen original dough, all-natural sauce, veggies sliced fresh daily and 100 percent real beef and pork. We think you’ll taste the difference.”

After all, who wouldn’t want fresher, better ingredients in their pizza? A great deal of the food we currently eat, both from the supermarket and at chain restaurants, is comprised of ingredients created as cheaply as possible (tomatoes chosen for their shipability, not flavor; chicken as bland as a pizza box because the bird only lived for 10 weeks and ate a monotonous diet) and highly processed additives, many of them not even technically edible.

So you’d think if Papa John’s was really following a different model, they’d want to tell us all about it. Too bad Read more Thursday 130815
