My kids are young and pretty picky eaters, but there is one meal we can all enjoy together…..pizza! We love fresh pizza. In fact, my kids will only eat it fresh. We quit buying frozen pizzas about 5 years ago, and now there is no going back. Most of us turn to frozen pizza out of convenience, yet we have found that take ‘n’ bake pizzas are just as convenient if not more so because we can customize it to exactly how our family enjoys their pizza. Not to mention, no frozen pizza can compare to the amazing flavors and textures of a fresh pizza. Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza is one of our favorite places to get fresh pizza. Their pizzas are so convenient and yummy. We eat pizza most weekends but on a busy weekday, pizza is a quick and easy meal my family loves. Last night was one of those nights. However, it was extra special because we ordered our pizza with the Papa Murphy’s NEW pan fresh crust! Thats right, now you can get your favorite Papa Murphy’s Signature Style pizza with pan crust. Since my boys love sausage pizza, we went the simple route and tried a large sausage pan pizza. It was a huge hit with my entire family.
The boys were beyond excited to try the new pan pizza. My hubby called me to let me know when he was leaving Papa Murphy’s with our food. This gave me the perfect amount of time to preheat the oven so we would be ready to toss our pizza inside when he got home. As a special treat my hubby brought home dessert from Papa Murphy’s as well. My boys were mesmerized by the sight of the dessert pizza. My oldest son loves s’mores, so he was all smiles when he found out we were having Papa Murphy’s S’mores Dessert Pizza.
If you have ever bought pizza from Papa Murphy’s you are well aware that each pizza comes with its own baking instructions. The pan pizza had baking instructions but the wonderful gentleman at the Papa Murphy’s location where my hubby purchased our food was extra helpful and told my hubby what to expect when baking the pan pizza. Since this was our first time baking a Papa Murphy’s pan pizza, he told my hubby to expect a few bubbles to rise on the pizza during baking and to simply pop them. We only had one bubble form during the baking process. He also recommended that the pizza be removed from the baking tray immediately after being taken out of the oven. If left in the baking pan, the crust would continue to cook. Our pizza turned out beautifully. It was easy to cook and the baking tray that was provided by Papa Murphy’s worked very well. When we removed the pizza from the oven, there was quite a bit of butter in the baking pan. My hubby just placed our pizza on a pizza stone after removing it from the oven. The large pan pizza is thick and cheesy and the crust buttery and golden brown….pizza perfection!
Papa Murphy’s fresh pan pizza was a huge hit. My oldest son said it was the best pizza he ever had. He told me, “I think this is my new favorite pizza.” He loves pizza that has lots of cheese and is not overly saucy. This pizza was a slice of heaven for him.
My 3 year old son is going through a phase of being an extremely picky eater and getting him to eat a meal is no small challenge. My husband and I were completely shocked when he asked for a second serving of pizza. My husband is not a huge fan of pan style crust and he even told me he liked Papa Murhpy’s pan pizza much more than the other pan pizzas we have tried in the past. The fresh crust is less greasy giving it better texture and it simply tastes great. I personally love pan style crust and I found the new Papa Murphy’s fresh pan crust to be excellent. Papa Murphy’s has completely won over my family with their new fresh pan crust.
The new Papa Murphy’s fresh pan crust is so thick….you may need a fork! At least, my kids did anyway. My oldest son usually eats pizza with his hands but he recently lost another tooth and he didn’t have enough tooth power to chomp in to this thick buttery crust!
Even my baby girl wanted to get her hands on this pizza. She definitely needs a few more teeth before she gets to enjoy pizza night!
Visit a Papa Murphy’s location near you and try your favorite pizza with the new fresh pan style crust! My hubby and I plan on trying the chicken garlic pizza soon. It sounds amazing! What are your favorite pizza toppings?
