Papa Murphy's is a pizza chain featuring fresh pizza dough that is rolled out and topped with sauce, cheese and requested toppings. There are no ovens inside Papa Murphy's stores. The raw pizzas are sold to customers to bake up fresh at home. There are three different types of pizza crusts and calzones at Papa Murphy's with specified baking requirements. The company's pizza-baking instructions are designed for conventional ovens.

Step 1

Refrigerate or bake a Papa Murphy's pizza within an hour of purchase. Bake pizzas within 24 hours of refrigerating. Remove a pizza from the refrigerator and allow to stand at room temperature for one hour before baking.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425 degrees for original and thin crust pizzas. Preheat oven to 375 for a stuffed pizza or calzone. Follow Papa Murphy's take and bake pizza baking instructions for the specific crust type.

Step 3

Remove the plastic wrap and take the Papa Murphy's stores instructions and coupons sheet off the pizza. Leave the special disposable baking tray provided under the take and bake pizza for a one-time use in a conventional oven.

Step 4

Place an original crust Papa Murphy's pizza, a calzone or a stuffed pizza on a rack in the center oven. Use a lower oven rack set at least 5 inches over the heating element for thin crust deLITE-style pizzas.

Step 5

Bake Papa Murphy's original and thin crust pizzas for 12 to 18 minutes, but check the baking progress after 10 minutes. Bake the calzones and stuffed pizzas for 25 to 30 minutes, checking after 20 minutes of cooking.
