Pizza-lovers treated to a taste of Papa John’s new ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ in an unusual dining experience at London Underground’s deepest station

Lucky Londoners at the Underground’s deepest Tube station, Hampstead, were treated to Papa John’s new ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ pizza, in a unique platform-dining experience.

Hampstead Tube station on the network’s Northern Line played host to a one-of-a-kind pizza party as slices of Papa John’s new ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ pizza were delivered to the platform of the network’s deepest station to celebrate the launch of the pizza chain’s first ever deep crust pizza in the UK.

Diners swapped the usual busy Tube carriages and awkward eye contact for a moment of mouth-watering relaxation as they tucked into delicious light and fluffy ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ pizzas during the unusual dining experience in the depths of the north London station. 58.5 metres below ground, uncomfortable benches were replaced by cosy sofas placed in front of screens showing box-set favourites to give a taste of a perfect Papa John’s night in.

To celebrate the launch of ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’, Papa John’s will be offering free slices of the new pizza (while stocks last) to lucky Londoners outside Camden Papa John’s between 12.00pm and 3.00pm on Monday 11th September.

Papa John’s prides itself on using fresh ingredients, ensuring the use of fresh never frozen dough. The specially formulated recipe features a buttery, seared crust for a fuller flavour and a light and fluffy deeper dough, almost double the depth of regular Papa John’s pizzas cooked in a specially designed pan, to offer an even more indulgent taste than before.

A new recipe tomato sauce has also been created, using Californian vine-ripened tomatoes which go from field to can in six hours. Added to this is a blend of signature spices and extra virgin olive oil which are then reduced to create a richer tasting sauce, complementing the new thicker base perfectly. Every ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ pizza uses an extra cup of cheese, which is spread all the way to the edge of the dough to create a caramelised, crispy cheese crust. Each pizza is then completed with all the favourite pizza toppings, including fresh “store cut” vegetables.

‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ can be ordered with all the toppings available in the original Papa John’s range, including ‘half and half’ and ‘create your own’.

An even tastier treat, the new ‘Papa’s Deep Crust’ is on offer until 26th November 2017 priced from £10.99 (including ‘create your own’ with up to four toppings) from Papa John’s outlets nationwide - making it a deep-lightful addition to a night in relaxing in front of the TV.
