The Ancient Grains are naturally gluten-free and higher in protein and fiber than other grains, while adding a more robust texture and flavor to the crust.
The national offering is a direct result of recent pilot testing earlier

"Eating a gluten-free crust doesn't have to mean eating a bland,
tasteless product," said
Operationally, Papa John's employs procedures to prevent contact with gluten, and while the crust is prepared in a separate, gluten-free facility before being shipped to stores, it is possible that a pizza with gluten-free crust could be exposed to gluten during the in-store, pizza-making process. Therefore, the brand does not recommend its Gluten-Free Crust made with Ancient Grains for customers with Celiac Disease or serious gluten intolerances.
Papa John's is the first national pizza delivery chain to announce the removal of the following ingredients across its entire food menu:
- Artificial flavors and synthetic colors
- High fructose corn syrup
- Preservatives BHA and BHT
- Flavor enhancer MSG
- Cellulose and partially hydrogenated oils
In 2016, the brand announced the elimination of artificial flavors and synthetic colors across its entire food menu. Last summer, the pizza brand also fully transitioned the chicken used in grilled chicken pizza toppings and poppers to be fed on a vegetarian diet and raised without human or animal antibiotics, and went completely cage-free with its eggs.
