Papa John’s Pizza

As a high school student working at a local pizza pub in Jeffersonville, Indiana, Papa John’s founder, John Schnatter, realized that there was something missing from national pizza chains: a superior-quality traditional pizza delivered to the customer’s door.

John’s dream was to one day open a pizza restaurant that would fill that void.

In 1984, “Papa” John Schnatter knocked out a broom closet located in the back of his father’s tavern (Mick’s Lounge), sold his prized 1972 Z28 Camaro, purchased $1,600 worth of used restaurant equipment, and began selling his pizzas to the tavern’s customers (My brother, Todd, ate in the “Broom Closet’ Restaurant many times. I never knew about it back then, unfortunately — Mark.) The customers loved the pizza so much that John was able to expand by moving into adjoining space, eventually leading to the opening of the first Papa John’s restaurant in 1985.

Today, there are more than 3,000 Papa John’s restaurants worldwide.

Papa John and Colonel Sanders are the only two Kentuckians to by inducted into Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame.

No matter what the first day of a new week throws at you, no matter how looming the rest of the days before the weekend seem, a truly, madly delicious pizza makes it all better. The entire maddening day can be washed away by a combination of bubbling mozzarella, sweet sauce and chewy crust.

To make pizza a nightly affair, Suzanne Lenzer suggests preparing her easy “Mother Crust” dough on Sunday?in less than 30 minutes, freezing it and simply transferring it to the fridge to thaw on the morning you plan to cook. She gives the timestrapped home cook countless combinations for a healthy, delicious (and quick!) weeknight meal.

Balancing lighter healthy alternatives like Summer Squash with Lemon Zest and Ricotta with indulgent options such as Spicy Shredded Pork with Sweet Onion Jam and Burrata, in addition to bonus recipes including “Salad thoughts,” “Small bites,” and even a few ideas about wine, this book covers all the bases. Lenzer’s comforting voice adds a homey touch to her artisanal recipes and immaculately styled photos.
