Nothing pleases us more than to know the first (and last) taste thousands of people will soon have of Colorado will be a huge ad for a crappy pizza chain. Praise advertising and its insidious ways.
Pizza maker Papa John’s is promoting its whole-wheat crust made from Colorado-milled grain by carving a pizza into the wheat fields near Denver International Airport runways.
Papa John’s enlisted artist Stan Herd, who has more than 20 years of experience in “crop art,” for a pizza-based design on 6 acres near DIA’s east and west runways.
Papa John’s is looking to have the work done by early August in time for flights for the Democratic National Convention later that month. It will stay up until the first snowfall.
Herd will have a team of six working on and off, totaling an estimated 600 hours to get the crop circle ready. The pizza will be in full color, with mulch, cut corn and alfalfa bales for toppings.
