In reading their nutrition page it seems so. Anyone know for a fact that a non-thin crust pizza with veggies and their cheese is not vegetarian?

'Lists the ingredients of some of their dishes on their web site. The original pizza dough, the breadsticks and the pizza sauce (tomatoes, olive and canola oils) are vegan.

The mozzarella cheese used on the pizzas contains microbial (vegetarian) rennet. The Parmesan cheese contains animal rennet.

The Special Garlic Sauce contains mono- and diglycerides and lecithin from and unknown source."

There you go!

I love Papa John's! I order a veganized pie: original crust, no cheese, extra sauce and veggies. Mmmm!

From the website:

Does your dough contain animal fats?

NO. Only soybean oil.

Does your sauce contain animal fats?

NO. Only a blend of sunflower and extra virgin olive oils.

Does your cheese contain animal derived enzymes?

NO. It is a biosynthesized enzyme. (chymax)

Do any of your products contain animal derived enzymes?

No. These enzymes are biosynthesized and/or vegetable derived enzymes - not animal.

Does your pizza contain eggs?

There are eggs in our meatballs, chickenstrip breading, chicken wings, honey mustard dipping sauce, cheese dipping sauce, ranch dipping sauce, blue cheese dipping sauce, and our new garlic ranch sauce.

Does your pizza contain milk?

Neither our original pizza dough nor our original pizza sauce contains milk. However, our Alfredo sauce, Spinach Alfredo sauce, blue cheese dipping sauce, cheese, cheese dipping sauce, ranch dipping sauce, garlic ranch sauce, seasoned garlic Parmesan sauce, crisp topping used for Sweetreats, Parmesan cheese packet, our meatballs, linguica and thin crust all contain milk.

Can someone explain the biosynthesized enzyme (chymax)? they still use dairy I guess?

and EMC I like your avatar, Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind has to be my all time favorite anime.
