Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to tour a local Portland Papa Murphy’s. We got to sample new menu items, go behind the counter, and see how daily operations work. After a close-up look at this company, I can say how proud I am to be a Papa Murphy’s Mom.

I grew up eating Papa Murphy’s (even before it was Papa Murphy’s) and am proud of this locally started company. (The corporate headquarters are even in my home-town!) Papa Murphy’s is our “go-to” solution for those evenings where time has gotten away from us (or if we’re being honest- for those nights when I just don’t feel like cooking!!)

I wanted to share ten fun things you might not know about my favorite take and bake pizza chain.

1. You can completely customize your pizza.pm7

Want to divide your pizza into quarters? No problem. Want half with no sauce or no cheese? Sure. Want to keep some of the toppings on the side? Just ask. Papa Murphy’s is willing to work with any and all requests, and give you exactly the pizza you want.


2. Papa Murphy’s now offers gluten-free crust!

Papa Murphy’s has teamed up with Udi’s to offer their customers a gluten-free option. The crust is available in a medium size, and will cost the customer an additional $2.


3. Papa Murphy’s is FRESH!pm3

Recently, I had the opportunity to go behind the counter at a local Papa Murphy’s location. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that all of their dough is fresh made in-house daily. The cheese is freshly grated every morning. Fresh vegetables are chopped on site each day.  This is FRESH (and tasty!) pizza!

4. Pink Sauce

Pink Sauce is what you might call a “secret menu” item. Pink sauce is a combination of Papa Murphy’s red and white sauces. It is delicious. I love the flavor. The next time you order pizza, ask for pink!

pm15. New Cheesy Bread

In addition to the cheesy bread we’ve come to know and love, Papa Murphy’s is now offering a NEW cheesy bread. This cheesy bread comes in a rectangular pan, is baked on the new Fresh Pan crust, and comes loaded with cheese. I got to sample this new cheesy bread and LOVED it!


6. 3 Delicious Dessert Options

Did you know Papa Murphy’s has dessert? You can choose from three different options. Choose from chocolate chip cookie dough, the cinnamon wheel, or my personal favorite, the s’mores pizza.

7. Mini Murphspm4

In the mood for a more “grown-up” pizza? Have a particularly picky child who will only eat cheese pizza? Want to treat your kiddo to something special? Check out the Mini Murphs! A Mini Murph is a personal pizza kit made just for kids. Your child gets to add their own sauce, cheese, and pepperoni. These are fun treats for kids and something different than the traditional kid’s meal.

8. Gourmet Toppingspm2

Papa Murphy’s is now offering a “Gourmet Delite” line. Experience “grown-up” toppings like angus steak and spicy fennel sausage. Papa Murphy’s is so much more than pepperoni and Canadian bacon.

I was able to try the new Angus Steak & Roasted Garlic pizza and loved it!


9. 3 Crust Options

In addition to the new gluten-free crust, Papa Murphy’s now offers three different crust options. Select their thin crust if you are ordering a large or family size pizza. It’s cracker thin and serves up all the flavor you’re craving with less calories!  You can select the classic original crust in all sizes Papa Murphy’s offers. If you’re up for something new, select the new “Fresh Pan” crust. You can order large pizzas on this buttery and thick crust. (If you haven’t tried it yet – it’s amazing!)

Don’t forget – you can also get your pizza stuffed!


Not only do I love a great pizza, but I also love a bargain! Papa Murphy’s frequently makes coupons available to their customers. Coupons are wonderful and an easy way to save on already affordable meal. But did you know that Papa Murphy’s coupons NEVER expire? Not ever. (A Papa Murphy’s manager recently joked with me, telling me to hold onto my coupons for ten years, so I can really get a value should prices increase!) Still hanging onto some pizza coupons from the 90’s? Bring them in!
