Ordering Papa John's pizza...delivery!

Papa John's pizza is extremely popular in Korea. It's pricey however, compared to other Korean pizza shops. Anyways, the Papa John's website is in English and I found out from a coworker that they speak English. So Friday night after work we decided to bite the bullet and order pizza (well, I decided while Devante was in the shower, hehe).

On the phone it was easy to order and our pizza came within 30 minutes! We got a set combo, a regular sized pizza with a bottle of Coke and some bread sticks.

Here's the combo on the website:

The delivery guy came quick...probably risking his life in traffic as usual on his scooter.

The pizza was awesome...it was piping hot! Papa John's tasted like pizza from back home. Devante thought it was just OK...she likes Korean style pizza better. We both agreed that the garlic dipping sauce was revolting. The bread sticks...were...good. How many bread sticks can you eat?

So what do you do with leftover bread sticks (Papa John's comes with Tabasco!)?

Well, I was lying in bed and then I had an epiphany--why not make some croutons with the leftovers? Well, the next day...I did. I sliced up the bread sticks, and roasted them in a pan with some olive oil, garlic, basil, and salt and pepper for seasoning. Michael Weaver must be pretty proud right now...and most likely shedding some tears of joy. These will make a great addition to our gourmet salads.

Have you tried kimchi pizza yet?

Not yet...that's next on my list and you'll be the first to know when I do! :)

See, this is why you are a better food blogger. I would have never thought to make croutons out of the breadsticks!

Plus, I wish we'd known about the website. We ended up with the "large" combo pizza (not the pizza combo) because we were ordering without a menu and just went for it. (Hey, everywhere must have a combination pizza, right?) We were just glad we didn't end up with one with kimchi on it, this time. (We might be brave enough to try that one out in the future.)

Hehe, I made crutons too - from onion bread! Mmm. Good idea.

The web site only uses Hangeul.Sir/Madam, please post, in English, the addresses of the Papa John's restaurants in Taejeon, Nonsan, and elsewhere.

Thank you kindly, and have a wicked awesome day.
