New $6 menu item launching Feb. 3


Not sure if you want pizza or a sandwich for lunch? Well, now you can have both.

Papa John’s is launching its latest menu item, the Papadia, nationwide Monday in four varieties, company officials shared exclusively with USA TODAY.

The $6 pizza-sandwich combo is inspired by the “piadina,” an Italian folded flatbread sandwich from Northern Italy, Paul Fabre, the chain’s senior vice president of product innovation, said in a statement. 

“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,” Fabre said. “The Papadia is great for people on the go who are looking to mix up their traditional lunch routine.”

But while the Papadia is being marketed as a lunch item, it will be available during restaurant’s normal hours. The four varieties are Italian, Philly Cheesesteak, Grilled BBQ Chicken & Bacon and Meatball Pepperoni and they come with a dipping sauce  and pepperoncini pepper.

Papa John's introduces Papadias, a new flatbread-style sandwich  for its lunch menu.

The launch follows the introduction of Papa John’s Garlic Parmesan crust last November, the first flavor added to its six-ingredient original crust in the company’s 35-year history.

The nation’s third-largest pizza delivery company says more innovations are in store for 2020. 

In March 2019, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal joined Papa John’s board of directors, making history as its first African-American board member. O’Neal also is the company’s brand ambassador, a spokesperson and owner of nine franchises in the Atlanta area.
