I went to Papa John's Pizza in Salmiyah, Kuwait. I read some good reccomendations on the different blogs about it, and I was driving around and saw a sign that said Baba Jones in Arabic, I thought it might have been a brand knockoff, but there it was in smaller letters, Papa John's Pizza. So I parked my car and walked in.
The place was relatively clean, there was one customer in front of me asking a lot about Papa John's like their working time, where they deliver, what ingredients they use, having each picture on the menu explained to him, how their call center operated, everything and anythnig except placing an order.
I waited politely behind him. Another Papa John's Pizzarista (is that the right word?) apeared and I gave him my order. The other guy was still interogating the first Pizzarista. They told me to wait 10 minutes for my Pizza to be ready.
I managed to get a few pictures from my Camera phone when everyones' back was turned.
Above is the preparation area where they make the dough. The pizza dough is actually tossed in the air. I wanted to take a picture of the dough being tossed but I was afraid the tosser might not catch it and then I would be eating pizza with a special blend of herbs and spices courtesy of the floor.
To my right is the cashier area where they take your dough (or Dinars).
The Pizza dough is taken next to the ingredients area where the different goodies are put on it.
Notice the Pizza ingredients highlighted in Capital letters, this helps the Pizzarista quickly follow what he needs to put on the Pizza according to the order received.
The Pizza took 20 minutes to prepare and then I got the pizza and rushed back home to eat it.
Here is the closed box.
Here is the Pizza, notice the yellow round plastic thingie on the side?
Well, that is Papa John's garlic sauce, very potent, do not use it if you plan on meeting other people later.
Now after wolfing down that Pizza, I need some coffee, so I am going out and getting some of this:
