I LOVE Papa John's garlic sauce!! I think I could practically drink the stuff!! I found this recipe on the net, and I am posting per request. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds good!!
- Melt butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
- Add salt and garlic powder (to taste).
- Microwave for 5 seconds longer.
I have not yet tried to make this recipe, but there's something about the real Papa John's garlic sauce I thought should be addressed. Before you use the sauce, you have to shake it. This is because, if you open a cup without mixing it, you'll notice that the sauce actually *separates*. This is an indication that Papa John's uses, in addition to butter or margarine, some type of liquid oil, such as vegetable or canola oil, although I have no way of discerning exactly what kind. I just thought this issue should be brought up, as it would *seem* to imply that there is an ingredient missing from this particular recipe.
On a related but somewhat different topic, a tip that many people may find quite useful: While I enjoy Papa John's garlic sauce for dipping their crust in, I rarely get pizza from there. I use their garlic sauce for a completely different purpose: hamburger condiment. Papa John's garlic sauce is absolutely *perfect* for hamburgers, and I use it in my own special homemade sauce, which consists of ketchup, mustard, Papa John's garlic sauce, Taco Bell taco sauce, and cayenne pepper (4 cups ketchup, 1 cup each for other three, 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper). I highly recommend the garlic sauce for any hamburger gourmets.
Not quite like Papa John's and a little too salty for our taste when made using the full amounts. But after diluting it with a little additional margarine was a great addition to the pizza crust.
I doubled the margarine, not the garlic powder or salt and it was actually better than Papa John's. Thanks for sharing I'll make this instead from now on!
