Papa Johns has been actively pushing for healthier ingredients in its pizzas. The popular pizza chain continues to emphasize its commitment to superior food quality, which it seeks to effectively communicate with its customers via its advertisements and press releases. Indeed, it has recently revamped its advertising campaigns, both the traditional and digital, for this purpose.
Papa John’s is one of an increasing number of global fast-food chains in the United Kingdom to push for healthier ingredients and, in the process, remove artificial ingredients including additives. These positive developments in the industry certainly bodes well for customers who are more conscious about their health particularly on their consumption of artificial ingredients, sodium and its equivalents, and fats including cholesterol.
The pizza chain’s push for healthier pizzas started in June when it released its Greek Pizza, a pizza filled with more vegetables as well as with lower fat and sodium content. Customers have expressed their satisfaction with it that, in turn, further encouraged the pizza chain to introduce more healthy fare.
Thus, Papa’s Lighter Choices, a selection of five nutritional plates including Chicken & Veggie, Mediterranean Veggie, and Grilled Chicken & Canadian Bacon, was born. According to Bob Kraut, the pizza chain’s chief marketing officer, these choices don’t contain processed, low-calorie ingredients.
Emphasis must be made that the replacement of artificial ingredients with organic and natural ingredients is a costly endeavor. This is because the healthier ingredients cost more than their artificial counterparts but Papa John’s commitment to superior quality has made it possible.
Healthier Habits, Too
But as a customer, you still have the responsibility to watch out for your caloric intake including your consumption of fats, sodium and artificial ingredients. Papa John’s may have its healthier Lighter Choices but you will still find more than a few indulgent choices. You have to make deliberate choices when ordering and eating your Papa John’s pizzas especially when you are a regular patron.
- Order the smaller pies since these have smaller-sized slices and, thus, fewer calories.
- Share your pizza with your date so that you can still enjoy pizza without overindulging, which means fewer calories, too.
- Choose the pizzas with more vegetables than meats.
- Go for the red sauce since it will likely contain tomatoes, which are rich in antioxidants, than for the creamy toppings.
In the end, you have the final responsibility to yourself including your body’s health. You can enjoy Papa John’s fare but you have to be conscious about what you eat with each visit.
