Papa John's Dipping Sauces
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Rating: 3.7 (3 reviews)

John Shnatter was only 23 years old when he used 1600 dollars of start-up money to buy a pizza oven and have it installed in the broom closet of an Indiana tavern. John started delivering his hot, fresh pizzas, and in 1984, the first year of his business, he sold 300 to 400 pizzas a week. One year later, he opened the first Papa John's restaurant, and his chain has become another American success story. Today the company has expanded to over 2500 locations in 49 states with revenues of 1.7 billion dollars a year. That makes John's place the country's fastest-growing pizza chain.

John has kept the Papa John's menu simple. You won't find salad or subs or chicken wings on his menu. The company just sells pizza, with side orders of breadsticks and cheeseticks made from the same pizza dough recipe. With each order of breadsticks or cheesesticks comes your choice of dipping sauces. I've got clones for all three of those tasty sauces - Special Garlic, Cheese, and Pizza. You can use these easy clones as dips for a variety of products, or you can simply make your own breaksticks by making your favorite pizza dough, then slicing it into sticks. If you want cheesesticks, just brush some of the Garlic Sauce on the dough, then sprinkle it with mozzarella cheese and bake. Slice the baked dough into sticks and use the dipping sauce of your choice. It's a cinch.

Seriously? I just paid 79 cents for a recipe telling me to mix garlic powder and butter? There is more to the sauce than that, it's thicker. This is ridiculous. Waste of freaking money.
