This post is part of a sponsored campaign with Papa Murphy's and MomSelect. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
The first time I ever had Papa Murphy's I was in grad school and my friends couldn't believe I had never heard of their take n' bake goodness. Once I tried it, I was hooked. Alan and I would get pizzas a lot during our last year of school. We were both busy with our respective thesis (theses?) and I didn't always have time to make a home cooked meal. With Papa Murphy's, I was able to at least bake it at home to give my pizza a homemade feel.
When we moved to PA and the closest Papa Murphy's was hours away, we missed it terribly. Now that we're back in Indiana, we purchase pizzas all the time. We actually had Papa Murphy's pizza at Ewan's first birthday party.
So, when I was given the opportunity to try out their new pan pizzas, I was stoked. We decided to purchase a pan pepperoni pizza for the kids and a custom order pineapple, green pepper and onion pizza, which is one of our favorites. We also got an order of cheesy bread because we love the stuff.
I'll be honest, I'm not usually a fan of pan pizza because that's a lot of crust. But this was really good! I was a little worried that with that much dough, it wasn't going to cook completely in the center before burning the outsides, but it was perfect. The bottom was crispy from the butter and the insides were nice and soft, but not raw. The kids loved it too :-)
We had so much pizza left over that we were able to take it to lunch for the rest of the week. Not bad for a quick mid-week meal!
