Friday Night means Pizza from Papa Murphy's
Friday, August 15, 2014
My family will be gathering around the dinner table tonight tired but happy to have our first full week of school over and done. Even though we started practicing our back to school schedules ahead of time, it still shocked our systems to get up so early, so I plan on hitting the easy button tonight for dinner. That means it time to visit Papa Murphy’s pizza.
Long before I became a Papa Murphy’s Mom, I enjoyed the convenience of being able to pick up one of their made to order, take and bake pizzas, through together a quick garden salad and have a wholesome dinner on the table in no time. If I am really time crunched, I can pick up a pre-made salad at Papa Murphy's, right at the check out line.
I’m relying on Papa Murphy’s again tonight and I know their pizzas won’t disappoint us. The hardest part is deciding what to order!
While all Papa Murphy’s Pizzas are tasty, our family has clear favorites like the classic Pepperoni. You can’t go wrong with this for a quick dinner, especially if your teen or tween is having guests over. Pepperoni Pizza is like a whole food group to them and their top pick is always Papa Murphy’s.
Quick health tip: Press a napkin or paper towel on your slice of Pepperoni Pizza to blot off excess oils. Depending on the size of your slice, you could save yourself and your family up to 50 calories a slice.
You can use the blotting technique on Papa Murphy’s Cowboy Pizza too. This pie is one of my husband’s favorites!
Followed closely by the Papa Murphy’s meat lover’s pan pizza. Make no mistake; this is a loaded, man fuel pizza pie sure to please your hungriest bunch! I can eat one slice and I'm done.
Quick cooking tip: Even though Papa Murphy’s cooking instructions say to wipe off the bottom of the pan and to check for holes before baking the Pan Pizza, I still wound up with baked on grease on the bottom of my oven the first time we got this pie. I suggest you always cook this pizza on a pizza pan just to be on the safe side because it does have a fair amount of grease.
I’ve saved my personal favorite for last, This is by far one of the healthiest pizzas I've had in a long time. I LOVE Papa Murphy’s Herb Chicken Mediterranean Delite Pizza.
From its flavorful chicken, Feta cheese, fresh spinach and sun-dried tomatoes to its thin, crispy crust, this pizza is just delicious. Made with olive oil and a zesty herb blend, it is a light pizza that never makes me feel like I ate a heavy meal.
