Papa Murphy's Behind the Scenes Tour - Review #PapaMurphysMoms

Disclosure - free sample provided.

I love being a Papa Murphy's Mom.  This has allowed me to gain more info about Papa Murphy's, but it also has given me the chance to try some of their amazing items that I haven't tried before.  My family loves their pizza.  Have you tried Papa Murphy's Pizza?  This is take and bake pizza.  It is put together in the store with super fresh ingredients.  You take the pizza home, and then cook it in your oven.  It is a great concept!  

I was recently given the opportunity to visit a local store in the Las Vegas area to go behind the scenes and see how everything is done.  Mike from the North Las Vegas location on Losee was kind enough to host this for a few of us Vegas bloggers.  I was truly impressed with everything I learned.  Mike is very passionate about what he does.  I truly understand why!  His store is creating a high quality product that tastes great.

Papa Murphys stores are franchises.  What does this mean to you?  This means that you can go to any location and their pizza is made fresh and the same way at each location.  Papa Murphy's offers pizza, salads, desserts, and more.  I have been impressed with every item that I have ordered from Papa Murphy's.

I went behind the scenes at the Losee location in North Las Vegas.  The owner explained to us that the cheese is shredded fresh in store, the dough is made right there, and the fresh veggies are chopped there too.  I got to see them mix up a big batch of dough.  This was really impressive too.  Everything that they do has specific quality control instructions.  This is to make sure that it is done right every single time.  I also got to watch them shred giant blocks of cheese.  They chop their super fresh tomatoes in the neatest device I have ever seen!  

I was then given the opportunity to create my own pizza to take home.  I made a half pepperoni and half sausage pizza.  I learned that a normal large pepperoni has 60 slices of pepperoni on it.  My half pepperoni had 30 slices on the pepperoni side.  Everything from the sauce to the cheese is measured or weighed out to create the best quality product.  The last step to finishing your pizza it topping it with a provolone and cheddar blend, and wrapping it up.  

I took my pizza home and baked it for my family that evening.  They loved it!  

Do you want to find out where a Papa Murphy's is near you?  You can visit their website and learn more.  You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

I want to thank Mike and the North Las Vegas Papa Murphy's for the opportunity to see more how things are done in store.

  1. What a fun concept! I hope something local starts doing something like this!

  2. I have not tried Papa Murphy's Pizza, but it must have been such fun to get a behind the scene tour. Looks tasty too!
