Papa John’s Has A Frito Pie Pizza Because Why Not

fritos_chili_pizzaA bag of Fritos, a pot of chili, and a pizza sounds like the menu for my last Super Bowl party. The pizza scientists over at Papa John’s thought that this would be a great idea for a pizza theme, because…well, we’re not quite sure why anyone would think that, but for the next month or so, you can order this strange pizza-casserole hybrid.

One would think that if a Frito-pizza thing came from any chain pizzeria, it would be Pizza Hut. After all, Pizza Hut and Frito-Lay were once part of the same parent company, Yum! Brands. If Pizza Hut decided to do this, they would have stuffed the Fritos in the crust. Presumably. Maybe the chili and the beef as well.

Anyway, if you’re interested in this pie, you’ll be able to get it for $12 through November 23rd. Its toppings include Fritos chips (of course) as well as beef, chili, tomatoes, onions, and cheddar cheese. Of course, there’s also mozzarella.

If you like Frito pie and also Papa John’s pizza, this might be edible. If you happen to try it, let us know how it tastes in the real world.
