Papa John’s Adds New Chipotle Chicken and Bacon Pizza — Now It’s Your Turn to Cash In on the Trend, Too

By Jeremy White

With the trend towards bold flavors continuing, Louisville, Kentucky-based Papa John’s International has rolled out a Chipotle Chicken and Bacon Pizza for the 2013 holiday season. The pizza features a creamy chipotle sauce and is topped with sliced chicken poppers, bacon, sliced Roma tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese and mozzarella. Through December 29, the company is offering the pizza for $11.

Recent research by Pizza Today has suggested that usage of chicken and bacon toppings are expected to increase in 2014.
