Papa Murphy’s is a pizza chain featuring raw pizzas sold to customers to bake at home. There are three different types of Papa Murphy’s pizza crusts and calzones, each with specified baking requirements. The baking instructions are designed for conventional ovens.
Refrigerate or bake a Papa Murphy’s pizza within an hour of purchasing. Bake within 24 hours of refrigerating. Remove pizza from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour before baking.
For original and thin-crust pizzas, preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. For a stuffed pizza or calzone, preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the plastic wrap and take the instructions and coupons sheet off of the pizza. Place the pizza on the one-timeuse baking tray provided.
Place an original pizza, stuffed pizza, or calzone on the center rack in the oven. For thin-crust deLITE-style pizzas, use a lower oven rack set at least 5 inches above the heating element.
Bake Papa Murphy’s original and thin-crust pizzas for 12 to 18 minutes, but check the progress after 10 minutes. Bake the calzones and stuffed pizzas for 25 to 30 minutes, checking after 20 minutes of cooking.
- For a crisp crust, take the pizza trays out from under original and thin-crust pizzas after 10 minutes of baking, or after 20 minutes for stuffed pizzas. Finish baking directly on the oven rack, checking the pies every 1 or 2 minutes.
- Take pizzas out of the oven when the cheese is melted and the crust turns golden brown.
- Let pizzas stand for 5 minutes after removing from the oven before eating.
- Pierce any bubbles in the crust with a fork or sharp utensil while the pizza is baking.
