Papa John's, the world's third-largest pizza company, is introducing 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.
And, in an odd twist, they're positioning the launch to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday.
"We think this is the perfect time to introduce a new bacon pizza," Papa John's Chief Marketing Officer, Andrew Varga said in a statement. "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."
