I could go on and on. Papa Murphy's Cowboy family sized pizza would be similar (toppings wise) to what you are getting with a coupon for $10. I don't think that would make Papa Murphy's really expensive like was originally posted.

I can get a better pizza here in Chicago COOKED for what a refrigerated pizza costs at Papa Murphy's. I am going with the better cooked pizza. Besides, I want the local guys to stay in business as he makes a better product.

By the way, my local Italian market makes a COAL-FIRED pizza that is phenomenal that is also cheaper than Papa Murphy's.

And the market is closer to my cardboard box than any pizzeria.
And where do you cook it?

Those pizzas have been $1 forever.

We don't have Papa Murphy's in my state, I don't think anywhere on the east coast does, they aren't quite "everywhere". We have authentic Italian restaurants everywhere instead. But Papa Murphy's isn't quite in the same league as a true restaurant, they don't really use the highest quality ingredients in their pizza. A real Italian restaurant would use olive oil and fresh ingredients, like fresh garlic and onions, tomatoes, freshly grated cheese.....whereas Papa Murphys pizza has lots of corn syrup, dehydrated onions, preservatives, soybean oil....I think of it as frozen pizza not yet frozen. I imagine they get their pizza crusts etc. prepackaged from the factory and just add the wet ingredients like soybean oil etc. Kind of like buying a cake mix, baking the cake and calling it from scratch. LOL

Eating a frozen pizza you've purchased at the market will never compare to pizza from a restaurant/pizza chain. Frozen pizza to me is much like can spaghetti/pasta. It's not the real thing. You know it's not the real thing. But it's ok when your pressed for time and want something quick.

golly, I think you are missing my point: I don't think I have said local pizzas are not, in some cases better than chains. Of course some are, and this has nothing to do with the small guy staying in business: I agree with you on that, the discussion started with do you like frozen pizza?

wow, I think this is getting really off track. I don't think anyone has claimed papa Murphys is the best pizza ever made. We are talking about basic frozen pizzas from the store compared to others. Someone mentioned Papa Murphys as an alternative, and btw their crusts are made in house.

and I don't think Pizza was big in Italy until the past 50 years or so we were told, the same with tacos and Mexico or lettuce wraps in China.
