I am a Papa Murphy’s Mom through MomSelect and earlier this week I had the opportunity to visit my local Papa Murphy’s in West Jordan, UT and get a “Behind the Counter” Tour. I love Papa Murphy’s and we get pizza from there often. If you have never tried Papa Murphy’s before, you definitely need to! Want to know what sets Papa Murphy’s apart from all the rest? They only use fresh ingredients and make their dough, so everything is always fresh. They don’t even own any freezers, so you know your ingredients are always fresh and never frozen. Your pizza is made to order right in front of you and then you take it home and bake it in your own oven. That way, your pizza comes out at the perfect temperature and it’s the closest thing to homemade. They have so many pizzas to choose from, plus you could even customize your own pizza. We love their Creamy Garlic Sauce which comes on their Gourmet Chicken Garlic Pizza and it’s one of our favorite pizzas. I was really excited that I had the opportunity to go have a “Behind the Counter” tour.
Papa Murphy’s has delicious sides to go with your pizzas including their new Thick ‘n’ Cheesy Homebaked Bread which we had the opportunity to sample while we were there. We also had the opportunity to sample their new Gluten Free Crust.
I know a lot of people who need to eat gluten free food, so I was excited to learn that Papa Murphy’s would now have that option. I was surprised that the crust actually tasted pretty good. I could tell a little bit of a difference from the original crust, but for it being gluten free I thought it wasn’t bad at all and was actually quite tasty. Papa Murphy’s has partnered with Udi’s (which is a well-known Gluten Free brand) to provide their guests with a crust option that fits into their dietary restrictions. Their new Gluten Free pizza can be topped with any of their popular Papa Murphy’s pizza recipes or you can create your own!
Papa Murphy’s also has some new pizzas available, it’s their new International Gourmet Delite pizzas. You can try their new Angus Steak and Roasted Garlic Gourmet Delite pizza with creamy garlic sauce and topped with steak, roasted garlic, fresh mushrooms, green onions, and topped with parmesan cheese. I tried this and it was so yummy! Their other International Gourmet Delite is the Spicy Fennel Sausage Gourmet Delite pizza with creamy garlic sauce, spicy fennel sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, fresh spinach, and topped with parmesan cheese. A great bonus are that these pizzas are thinner and lighter without losing any of the flavor. Big taste on an artisan thin crust brings delicious sophistication that’s less than 250 calories per slice and 25% less fat.
I had the opportunity to make my own pizza and it was a lot of fun! It was interesting to be able to see how the pizzas were made and how they are able to get the perfect amount of ingredients on their pizzas. I was amazed to realize that for a family size pizza, they use over a pound of cheese! Yum!
I was pretty proud of my pizza and when I took it home to bake and eat with my family, they couldn’t believe I was the one to make the pizza!
Papa Murphy’s has so many choices and you can even customize your own pizza. Did you know they have Mini Murph’s? These are little pizza kits that you can order for your kids where they can make their own pizzas at home. My kids love them! You definitely need to check out Papa Murphy’s, it’s our favorite pizza and I always feel better feeding my family pizza when I know that it’s using fresh ingredients and I can bake it in my own oven. So give it a try today! A big thanks, MomSelect, Papa Murphys, and of course our great hosts, Jared and Jeff, for the opportunity to have this amazing “Behind the Counter” tour.
