Papa Murphy's: Share Your Experiences...
I've been getting coupons from this company for ages. Their prices look attractive, and the thought of having pizza straight out of the oven, at home, is appealing. The bake at home pie from Costco is fine, and the quantity is close to overwhelming.
Using that as a standard, is Papa Murphy's take 'n bake better or worse? Their large combo is $11, so I might try it in the interim and share notes.
It depends. If you like the take home pie from Costco, you'll have no problem with Papa Murphy's. Is it better? A matter of taste as far as the basic Pepperoni, or cheese, or supreme go. I find either place a small step above frozen for those pies.
The Papa Murphy's Gourmet Chicken Garlic is very good. Love the garlic sauce.
The DeLite Chicken, Bacon, Artichoke is a freakin masterpiece for a cheap pizza.
I'm probably exagerating cause I'm hungry right now, but I love both these pies.
I should note that I'm not a huge fan of red sauce pizza's, unless they are from a good local Italian place with a damn good red sauce, crust, and cheese. I can't do any of the chains. They just simply suck. Des Moines has lots of Italian places that do pizza right, but when I'm in the mood for a little different, more, and cheap, it's those two pies from Papa's.
My family and I loved our local P.M.'s for years, but over the past four years the store closest to us has had a decline in the quality of the product they serve and a lack of management present in the evening to correct issues in a timely fashion (same day resolve) has been quite the turn-off. The P.M.'s in the city over are fine so it must be something to do with how the stores are being run in our area. It's sad, my family and I were once loyal customers, but now we get our pizzas elsewhere.
The papa murphys in our town is outstanding! The garlic chicken pizza is delish, but I do like a red sauce on my pizza. I really like their sauce, it has a little kick to it, like it has red pepper flakes in it (but I don't think it does). The amount of cheese and meats they put on them are ridiculous, and the family size is HUGE! PM is one of our favorites!! Do try it!!
