Better Ingredients

At Papa John's we use simple ingredients without a lot of additives. From our six-ingredient fresh dough, to our simple yet flavourful pizza sauce, and topped with 100% Canadian Mozzarella cheese.

Better PIZZA

Hand-Tossed Original Crust - A better pizza begins from the bottom up. It’s delivered to our restaurants fresh, never frozen, and it stays fresh until it’s baked to perfection. And while it’s staying fresh, it’s also proofing slowly and naturally, maximizing the dough’s flavour.​


We're leading the way with product innovation with products such as Epic Stuffed Crust, Shaq-a-Roni Pizza, and our industry first Papadias.
