Papa Murphy's is a North American chain that sells "Take 'N' Bake Pizza" that is handmade and raw. Pizzas can only be sold whole and not by the slice since they are not pre-cooked. The different types of pizza sold are regular pizzas, thin delite pizzas, stuffed pizzas, and calzones. Regular pizzas come in 3 sizes: medium, large, and family. Delite (thin crust) pizzas only come in large. Stuffed pizzas and calzones come in large and family sizes. In addition to pizzas, side items are also sold such as cheesy bread, cinnawheels, salads, and homemade cookie dough.

Employees try to be as helpful and accommodating as possible when taking orders. If you're nice to the cashiers they'll gladly help you figure out all what can and cannot be done when it comes to toppings, etc. Pizzas can be made half-and-half, in fourths, thirds, and even by "slices" (which is especially great if a guest is a light eater or have a picky child).

Papa Murphy's does not deliver and you cannot dine-in. The big white thing in the back is a giant freezer, not an oven, so Papa Murphy's cannot bake your pizzas either. If a pizza is purchased under the assumption that it is baked, the employees will happily refund your money when asked.

When ordering by phone make sure to ask about the monthly special(s).
There are often fliers in the mail with discounts and coupons.

2005-07-07 20:47:48   Talk about a good deal! You can get huge pizzas for under 10 bucks! The quality of their pizza's is spectacular. Get the BBQ chicken pizza. —SiennaGrass

2005-09-17 10:10:00   Yeah... if you go for the thin crust pizza, you can get enough for two meals for 5-7 bucks, depending on how many toppings you get. Totally awesome. —ShaunGeer

2006-03-21 21:53:25   I got a veggie pizza here once, but it was the worst pizza I ever had. The pizza dough must have been sitting around for a while because the crust was nasty sour. —PattyLouieJunior

2006-12-11 22:46:47   I've had only great pizza's from Papa Murphy's. Great deals all the time. The pepperoni special for 5.99 is a REAL deal. —DavisWheeler

2007-02-04 16:20:03   The DeLite pizza's are really good if you like thin crust. Try the Hawaiian. —GuyIncognito

2007-10-09 18:37:48   I had the five meat stuffed crust. Awesome. —BenjaminRosenstein

2007-11-04 17:07:43   I've always had a really good experience here. Really good for really cheap! —Idunitt

2007-12-24 20:57:01   If you want pizza, have little money, but possess an oven (or a buddy who has one), go here. It's not bad at all. —thelonepiper555

2008-03-30 15:11:14   Baking my own pizza? Sheeeeeeeeeew. . .I don't think so. —CurlyGirl26

2008-08-19 17:55:24   Check out the weekly coupons to get the best deal. True, you need to bake yourself but for the prices can't be beated! —slt

2009-08-02 15:19:27   Ad sent to my house stated that they accept American Express. When I went to pick up my pizza they wouldn't accept my Amex. I tried to explain the ad; they just gave me attitude, "read the sign on the door, no Amex." Buy your pizza next door at the grocery store. They respect their customers and appreciate the business, regardless of your method of payment. —busthead

2009-09-06 21:30:29   I really like their Chicken Artichoke Delite. Mmmmm marinated artichokes... and bacon! It's really good and not a bad price. —KaprilWooley

2009-11-05 21:02:04   I just came from here and the girl who served me on the phone and in person had to be the most polite and courteous food service employee I have come across in years. I just had to join the wiki just to say that. Havent tried the pizza yet but Its a favorite so I already know its good :) —soldieroftafari

2009-11-11 11:16:51   Best pizza deal ever. Wait for the coupons to arrive in the mail (there are always Papa Murphy's coupons in the mail) and you can get a large pizza for only $5.99. And it's delicious. I like to follow the instructions for a crispy crust. I occasionally add my own toppings. One time I asked for a cheese pizza with the cheese on the side; and they did it without any questions or snide remarks. When I got it home I added some ingredients to the sauce and added my own toppings. It was like making my own pizza without having to deal with making pizza dough. Delicious. —GJC02

2010-04-28 22:36:36   what's with the overly negative description? and there is in fact a very large difference in quality between supermarket pizza and papa murphy's. . . normally I can get two meals out of one supermarket pizza, but papa murphs large I can get three! yay. —KellyCorcoran

2010-04-28 23:29:34   Papa Murphys has always been a solid choice, you just have to have an oven! —StevenDaubert

2010-04-28 23:31:53   I love getting pizzas here. There are always coupons available and you can almost always get a family size for under ten dollars. —hankim

2012-04-12 18:19:16   I enjoy their pizzas as a fun treat, especially the DeLite flavors. Good prices. It is especially nice in the winter as it's a good excuse to warm up the house with the oven. Plus, you get pizza aromatherapy. —gurglemeow

2012-04-12 21:59:32   I'm surprised I haven't left a review here before. Papa Murphy's isn't the best pizza in Davis, but it is fairly good and just so darned cheap. A constant stream of coupons (annoying, really... except when you get a craving for Papa Murphy's!) and the stamp cards make it even cheaper.

A couple of cautions: while the pepperoni and the veggie are quite good fresh, they're definitely sub-par as leftovers, either hot or cold. The veggie gets a little soggy from all the vegetables, while the pepperoni just isn't very tasty. That said, the Hawaiian is as good for leftovers as it is fresh, and the Cowboy is still darn tasty.

The "deLites" are pretty good, but I always prefer a regular crust to the super-thin one. I haven't tried the toppings on a regular crust yet, but I imagine that'd be tasty.

The one thing that's missing is a good BBQ chicken pizza. Oh well. Life's tough. —TomGarberson

2012-09-27 12:19:24   The big white thing in the back is a refrigerator. You will not find a freezer in ANY Papa Murphy's store. It's fresh pizza exactly as you create it, hot and bubbly from your oven when you're ready to eat it! Sure beats a cold pizza from a cardboard box! —SherylBraun
