Papa Johns 'Pizza with Purpose', the Shaq-A-Roni, has come to the UK.

The pizza 15.5-inch pizza is made with Papa Johns’ signature never-frozen, six-ingredient dough, which is then covered with tomato sauce, extra pepperoni and extra cheese, before being baked to perfection and cut into eight foldable slices.  

The pizza was developed in partnership with basketball Hall of Famer and Papa Johns board member and franchisee Shaquille O’Neal.

In the UK, Papa Johns is teaming up with Young Enterprise, a non-profit youth organisation part of Junior Achievement Worldwide to help deliver this vision, as the official charity partner of choice to oversee the distribution of funds raised directly in market.  Papa Johns will donate a $1 equivalent donation from every Shaq-a-Roni pizza sold to Junior Achievement continuing to support its mission to catalyse youth empowerment worldwide.  

“We’re excited to launch the Shaq-a-Roni pizza on our menu made in partnership with our board member and long-standing franchisee, Shaquille O’Neal. The Shaq-a-Roni is one of the biggest pizzas on our menu, so we hope our customers will enjoy sharing the XXL slices with friends and family,” Rebecca Rose, Senior Director of Marketing at Papa Johns said.

For the last three years, Papa Johns has raised over $9m for community organizations through sales of the Shaq-a-Roni pizza.
