Papa John's has rolled out its new Chicken Parmesan pizza nationwide this week.
The pizza is covered in traditional pizza and creamy garlic parmesan sauces, then topped with sliced breaded chicken strips and mozzarella, parmesan and Romano cheeses sprinkled with Italian herb seasoning. A large Chicken Parmesan pizza is available for $10.

We've taken it to another level and are offering the popular flavor combination on a pizza. Americans want choice and Papa John's is here to deliver."
Chicken Parmesan pizza is a limited-time offering pizza and will be available at Papa John's restaurants throughout the U.S. now through mid-August.
