Papa John’s is celebrating James Harden’s Most Valuable Player Award by offering Harden-inspired “MVPizzas” to lucky Houston-area customers today. Harden has been a brand spokesperson since 2016. Each extra-large will be topped with ingredients that pay homage to Harden’s one-of-a-kind game:
Black olives because of his trademark beard
Three-cheese blend because of his league-leading 265 three-pointers
Jalapeños because of his hot shooting
Italian sausage because of his Euro step
Extra sauce because … have you ever watched him play?
As a nod to Harden receiving the 63rd MVP Award, “MVPizzas” will be offered to the first 63 carryout orders (one per customer) exclusively at the Papa John’s restaurant at 8588 Westheimer Road in Houston, beginning at 10 a.m. this morning. Orders will be available for carryout only, because like Harden, these pizzas do not travel. I’m hungry just reading this.-TO
