Papa John's Pizza

Since all Papa John’s pizzas come with cheese, special ordering is a must if you want a dairy-free pizza.

  • Crusts – Original Hand Tossed Dough
  • Sauces – Pizza Sauce and Barbeque Sauce
  • Toppings – All Vegetables, Pineapple, Olives, Pepperoni, Sausage, Italian Sausage, Ham, Bacon, Anchovies, and Grilled Chicken
  • Sides – Breadsticks

    I called Papa Johns tonight to order a pizza. When I asked them to make it without cheese, he quickly asked me if it was for an allergy. When I said yes, he said they could not make the pizza without cheese because they didn’t want to be liable. He told me they weren’t allowed to made a cheese-less pizza and they “just didn’t do that”. They were pretty rude about it. I told him, Okay… I just don’t like cheese. He begrudgingly took my order. Very frustrating!

      Seriously frustrating! Thanks for sharing your experience Christy. A very good heads up for those who are concerned about trace allergens, too.
