LOUISVILLE, KY. — For a limited time, Papa John’s is offering the Double Bacon Six Cheese pizza, a specialty pizza made with a six-cheese blend of Mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, Asiago, Provolone and Fontina, and topped with both hickory-smoked bacon and Canadian bacon. The pizza will be available through Dec. 26.

“We think this is the perfect time to introduce a new bacon pizza,” said Andrew Varga, chief marketing officer for Papa John’s. “Year after year, we see a huge spike in pizza sales the day before Thanksgiving. Add to that the hundreds of bacon fan pages, dedicated blogs, its pervasiveness in pop culture and the fact that it is one of our top selling ingredients, it is clear that consumers have an enormous appetite and affinity for bacon.”

The Double Bacon Six Cheese pizza is available for $11 at all Papa John’s restaurants, and may be ordered on-line at www.papajohns.com.
