Aliens or ancient civilizations did not produce this crop circle. First of all, it’s technically a crop SQUARE, and second of all, we know it was created by Papa John’s pizza and artist Stan Herd, working with the Colorado Wheat Commission, the National Association of Wheat Growers, the Wheat Foods Council, and ConAgra Mills.

It’s a great way to celebrate the 100% whole wheat pizza crust now available nationwide on any Papa John’s pizza. If you’re flying into the Denver airport or otherwise passing over Colorado, look out the window and see if you can spot this giant pepperoni pizza.

How did they do it? The six-acre artwork started with a field of wheat, with red mulch for pepperoni, black mulch for olives, corn stalks for green peppers and harvested wheat for cheese. We are a little disappointed that the Whole Grain Stamp, which appears on all Papa John’s actual boxes, is not included. Marigolds would have made a nice gold color for the Stamp, but the text on the Stamp might have been a challenge.

My only question is, if a slice of the real pizza offers a full 40g of whole wheat, how much would be in one slice of the giant pepperoni pizza here? (Cindy – August 8, 2008)
