Papa Murphy’s *New* Fresh Pan Pizza #Review #PapaMurphysMNO

Even though I am a stay-at-home mom and am home a lot more than working moms, I am still always crazy busy.  If I’m good about meal planning there are very few days I have to scramble to have dinner ready, but sometimes life just gets going a million miles an hour and I totally space it.  Next thing you know, it’s 4:30 and I remember it’s time to start dinner. Whoops!  What to do? Pizza is quick and easy, and delicious too!

Other days- even when I have dinner planned and meat thawed and everything ready to go- we are all just in the mood for pizza.  My husband grew up in a family where every Friday night was pizza night, and while we don’t do pizza weekly, we do enjoy it on a regular basis.

Papa Murphys Pan pizzaSo, be it the “whoops, I forgot to plan dinner and it’s almost time to eat” nights or the “we really want pizza for dinner instead of what you have planned” nights, Papa Murphy’s is a fantastic option for us!  Papa Murphy’s pizza is made to order and completely customizable with your favorite fresh ingredients.  It’s great for us because I can call at 4:30 when I’ve realized I’ve completely forgotten dinner, pick it up at 5pm and have it ready by the time my husband gets home from work. On the days when we’re craving pizza, I can call anytime during the day, pick it up and have it waiting in the fridge and ready to pop in the oven whenever I want, and serve it fresh to my family.

We love their Take ‘n’ Bake Pizzas and have gotten them for years (the Chicago Style Stuffed and the Veggie delite are our favorites), but now Papa Murphy’s has a new addition to the menu: Papa Murphy’s Fresh Pan pizza! 

pan pizzaEvery Fresh Pan Pizza starts with flour, water and yeast. These simple ingredients, combined by hand daily in each of our stores, are mixed and then left to proof for 12 hours in happy little dough balls. These dough balls are pressed into our pans and then topped with your favorite sauce, 100% whole-milk mozzarella, hand-sliced fresh veggies, and butcher-quality meats. There’s so much freshness on this pizza, we decided to put it in the name.  Papa Murphy’s Fresh Pan pizza is a must-try for serious pizza lovers! The irresistible buttery crust bakes up golden brown and perfectly crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. The rich crust is the perfect canvas for Papa Murphy’s fresh, high-quality toppings and will come piping hot out of your oven at the exact point of pizza perfection!

We had the opportunity to try this new Fresh Pan pizza last night, and it was awesome! Once again, I loved the convenience of being able to call earlier in the day to place my order, pick it up when I was ready, and then pop it in the oven and serve it fresh when I was ready.   We had another busy day so not having to worry about dinner was such a relief for me. 

oven readyAfter the oven pre-heated it took only 15 minutes of baking before it was done, which was nice because everyone was “starving”! Of course, it didn’t hurt that the pizza was delicious as well!

Hot pizzaI love love love crust, so the pan pizza made me happy just for the thicker buttery crust alone.  Usually my kids don’t like the crust (or “pizza bones” as my 3-year-old calls them) and that means mommy gets to eat their crust too. Unfortunate for me, they all tried the crust and loved it… and ate it. Mama didn’t get any extra crust. :(  The pepperoni and sausage topping were really good, of course, but what we notice most with Papa Murphy’s pizza is that the cheese tastes so much better than other pick-up/delivery pizza places we order from occasionally.  We can clearly taste the quality, fresh ingredients used in Papa Murphy’s pizza.

Garden SaladAlong with the pizza we also ordered 2 Garden Salads, one with Ranch dressing and one with Italian dressing.  It’s important to me that my family has vegetables and/or fruit with every meal.  The salad was a nice compliment to the pizza, and since the additions of olives and green peppers made the salad different than the ones I make, the kids seemed to love it even more. They had seconds of salad!

    Okay I wanted to eat the screen just now! Yumm-o I think I am gonna try and make this at home for my family!

  4. I went through a long phase of making frozen pizza for a few years. I have tried most of them on the market and always hated DiGiorno because it was cheaper and easier to just call Dominos (which are both crap!) I wish I had a Papa Murphy’s in my area! I just googled them and would be here weekly, as I too came from Friday-night is “pizza night” family. It all looks so fresh, especially the salad!

  27. Oh, yummmm! I love Papa Murphy’s! We were first introduced to them when our family went to Alaska to visit friends and sightsee. I thought it was the most incredible idea and delicious, too! Now there is one just minutes from our house. When life is crazy with school, extra curricular activities, private lessons, and volunteering (when isn’t it?!) we order a couple of Papa Murphy’s pizzas (my fave is the Garlic Chicken, hubby’s is the Cowby, and the kids like the Veggie pizza and the Extreme (?) Pepperoni!) and we can’t forget the awesome pull-apart garlic bread, too! They also have refrigerated cookie dough that we have bought on occasion…many times it is consumed before baking! HAHA!
