Take'n Bake Pizza

Do you like to go to places that are catagorized as "take & bake"? We like to go to Papa Murphy's. They make some delicious pizza's including some stuffed pizza's. I do like my Pizza Hut BUT if I can get a stuffed Papa Murphy for what they want for a large there I'm getting more bang for my $$ and usually I can't handle much more than a slice of Papa Murphy's and we can eat it for aleast 2 meals. My aunt used to like to get the pre-made ones from the deli @ the grocery store upon occasion. But I don't find those as tasty as Papa Murphy's are.

I personlly hate take n bake pizza places. I know that it is cheaper and people say that they taste good, but if I am going to go out to a restaurant to buy a pizza then I want it to be baked. I'm not gonna pay someone else to give me something that I am just gonna have to take home and bake myself. I get food from take out restaurants because I want other people to do the work for me, not onlydo half of it.

I felt the same way til I got into the local take'n bake place. Though I don't patron them as much in hot weather as there's no way I'm heating my house up any further. Kinda wish they'd give you the option to bake it for you in summer atleast & of course charge ya a tiny bit for the convience.

I agree, in that I would eat Papa Murphy pizza or Pizza Hut pizza any day before I have a premade pizza. I don't like it as much. Papa Murphy and Pizza Hut pizzas are so fresh and hot and so good and tasty, they melt in your mouth, especially the cheese. I like them best because of the vast amount of cheese they put on the pizzas.

I agree MORE cheese the better! Just so long as it doesn't overwhelm the rest of the toppings by too much ;)

I love Papa Murphy's pizza there is so many kinds to choose from and they are all great. I like to pick one up after I have had to work late and bring it home to cook. The prices are great and they also offer some great desserts. They are so easy to cook and they provide you with everything you need so it is always a nice treat. They were fast to become my favorite pizza place cause there is no need to drag everyone out especially in the cold weather to go out and have pizza now we can have it at home. We live to far out for delivery so that has never been an option for us.

It comes in handy in winter though.... helps heat up the house ;) I work near one but I get out too late to order one as I work afterhours. We have delivery here I just can't see paying the delivery fee especially since gas prices have dropped so much & they are under 10 min away for us here.

We eat a Papa Murphy's all the time...my brother in-law manages the one closest to us. We love their stuffed crust pizza's too. In my opinion Papa Murphy's gives you the most pizza for your money and they are always fresh and good. I love Pizza Hut too, but they are way to expensives around here and you don't get as many toppings as you do with Papa Murphy's. Take and Bake is the way to go around here. Happy New Year!!!

You are absolutly right you get next to nill on toppings if you go to Pizza Hut and you pay the same price if not more for Pizza Hut.

I thinkpizza hut has got the ultimate taste and I love to go there again and agaiin. It is also the case when we get half baked pizza from the local vendor and complete the rest of the proceedings in home. Both ways the pizza tastes good. Making pizza is always a great job and I love doing it.

I have never been to Papa Murphy's before. There is one in the town I go shopping in sometimes. I bet I would like that stuffed pizza. I have done the take and bake before. My son likes to pick one up at Walmart and we will cook it when we get home. Better than having your pizza be cold by the time you get it home.

Our local supermarkets have pizzas we can take home to bake (a few will bake them for you if you ask), but there are no pizzerias who do this that I know of in our area (metro Philly). A lot of people around here will pick up pizza on their way home from work so they can eat when they walk in the door, so I'm not sure the idea would work here. But, I guess if Red Baron and that self-rising stuff can sell and make money, a stand alone place might be able to. But, they'd probably have to start out selling cooked pizza and offer take-n-bake at the same time to feel out the market.

I just tried papa murphys and its great pizza! I do think the price is still too high for pickup and baking it too. Why should it be so high if we are doing everything? I can get the same size at pizza hut and have it ready to eat and delivered. I actually like the deli pizzas at sams club. They make them fresh, put lots of cheese on them and they are cheap!
