Take and Bake Pizza (and my 100th post!)

We tried a place called Papa Murphy's a couple of days ago. They are one of a few local companies that specialize in the take and bake pizza.

We never had anything like this in California, but with slightly better prices than buying a cooked pizza, it was worth a try. We bought a family size (16-inch) Cowboy pizza which has pepperoni, sausage, black olives, and fresh mushrooms as the toppings. With coupon, it cost us $9.99 plus tax.

I could barely fit this pizza in this our oven! When it was done, it was fabulous! This was better than a lot of regular pizza places we have tried in the past. There was lots of cheese, toppings and the sauce and crust were great.

This was from:
Papa Murphy's
133 McCaslin Blvd., Ste. G
Louisville, CO 80027

By the way, this post is my 100th post (combined from my previous blog, and this one)!

Maybe I'll celebrate...donuts sound good (for some reason)!

Hi Matt, Thanks for dropping by and the lovely comments. I do rather like my new format.

I've heard of Papa Murphy's but I don't know if they have them in Canada.

Michelle said...

Ah, Papa Murphy's IS good. And Congratulations on your 100th post! Yay! You should definitely celebrate, my dear. And if it's donuts you desire, then you should have them!

For some reason when I logged in yesterday your template was different than it is now, but I like this one (tan with little fruit drawings) much much better!

Hi Nerissa, I was really surprised (in a good way) when we ate our pizza. It was way above average! Maybe Canada has another version of this type of restaurant?

Hi Michelle, I'm not sure what is going on with my blog. I haven't been able to post pictures using Explorer and have had to switch to Firefox to get anything done. I guess that speaks more about the good points of Firefox (and bad points of MS Explorer) and less about the frustrations of using Blogger, but for a while I was pulling my hair out! I like this template too. I had it waiting for my move for months!

I love pizza. We don't have that pizza place here but there is a place that does a fabulous white pizza. It's so good and that's why I don't get any! LOL!

I don't think we have a take-and-bake pizza place near me (upstate NY). Cool concept though. What are the benefits (as opposed to having them bake it for you)?

Dawn said...

Kristi, I guess the biggest benefit is the cost and having a truly fresh-baked pizza at home. With the various coupons and what not, you can get large pizzas starting from about $7 up to about $12. And they are loads better than the frozen pizzas you can buy. And ultimately, the pizza from this place is better than the Pizza Hut or Domino' I guess that the best reason.
