Papa John's Catches Royal Wedding Fever, Makes Creepy Portrait Pizza

Here at Consumerist Global Headquarters, we were so preoccupied with the final rounds of the Worst Company in America tournament last week that we missed what is arguably the biggest chain-pizzeria news of the entire month. Papa John’s commissioned a food artist to design a celebratory wedding portrait. It’s in honor of the upcoming marriage of two charming young rich people named William Windsor and Catherine Middleton. You may have heard of them.

One lucky pizza lover in the U.K. will be able to win this beautiful pie-then presumably varnish it and put it on the wall. Or eat it.

“Like our original crust pizza, our royal portrait is made from 100 percent fresh dough and quality ingredients, so it tastes as good as it looks,” the company’s chief marketing officer said in a statement.

That’s probably true. After it’s baked, it’s going to look terrible.
