Just for the record though, there is no way to get the code through the NUS Extra scheme though. And make sure you check out our helpful savings section, which lists the latest pizza offers which could actually work out cheaper for your order than a standard Papa John code.

Papa Rewards (sounds a bit weird we think – lol) is a scheme to reward their loyal customers. It’s a fab idea which allows you to save more money and even get free food, often you can combine with your student voucher as well.

Yes, from sides to desserts, the delicious pizza deliverers have added extra choices to this popular saving and with redemptions as low as 8 points for selected starters for FREE – it really does pay to be loyal to Papa John.

This is one of the best student reward schemes the Squirrel has come across. This scheme is now More Rewarding as for every £4 you spend you’ll earn 1 point, and the more points you collect, the more free food you can claim. 25 points give you a Free Large-sized Pizza, or you can spend your points on selected sides, drinks and desserts. Your pizza points are valid for 3 months from the date of your last order, so as long as you keep ordering you can use them whenever you like!

Points are earned at Papa John’s on non-cash orders only which is perfect as if you order online, you can pay by card and are assured that it is a safe, secure website (look for the padlock!) You are also given points when you spend other Papa Johns deals.

The premium pizza delivery market has long been dominated by one American brand, but high streets across the country are beginning to introduce a new franchise: Papa Johns. First introduced to the UK in 2001, the expansion of stores across the country has escalated as the popularity of the chain has been realised and boosted, with many of us now opting to order pizza over its competitors.

Papa John’s Franchises

Its franchises in the UK are takeaway only, offering home delivery of their food with one of their drivers to an address locally, or it can be collected by customers direct. Opening hours vary between franchise operators but some in bigger cities and popular locations are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can get your pizza fix no matter what time of the day or night it is!

In the US you’ll find Papa Johns restaurants with seats for customers to eat in-store, but sadly that trend hasn’t made it across the pond here yet. We wait with our fingers crossed!

The takeaways will strive to work with your dietary requirements where they can and can give you a comprehensive list of allergens and potential allergens in each of their pizzas.

How Papa John’s Pizzas Are Made?

Each Papa John’s pizza is made fresh to order and the dough is made in each country’s HQ before being shipped out to individual franchise outlets, so it’s exactly the same every time for every pizza. The chain really credits their award-winning pizzas to the simple dough bases: made only with the highest quality protein, unbleached wheat flour, purified water, yeast and salt, in the same ratios and combination every time. Despite popular misconception, the dough is never frozen and always fresh!

Rich, smoked chargrilled chicken, fresh salad straight out of the fridge, a carefully chosen blend of fresh cheeses, Spanish Herrera Grove olives and crisp Italian pepperoni all are used to make up the topping recipes we all know and love… and we won’t comment on the use of pineapples!

Papa Johns pizzas are by no means budget, and you won’t often find Student Discount Squirrel endorsing such high-end brands when there’s cheaper available. But everyone deserves a treat once in a while, and there are ways to make premium pizza work for you. The American-style portion sizes of Papa John are big enough that they’ll last you through a few meals, and there are other ways to save cash too.

Papa Johns discounts will save you some pennies but ordering online rather than over the phone also throws up some package deals and codes.
