Why Papa Murphy's is better than Pizza Hut - Bachelor on the Cheap

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

I'm one of those people that if you ask, "What is your favorite food?"  I'm going to respond "PIZZA!" without hesitation (Burgers are #2 and anything grilled or BBQ'd #3).  But I have a dilemma, I'm not a fan of Pizza Hut (they have become so inconsistent with delivery AND product), Domino's sucks and Papa John's is so-so. I'm in need of a pizza joint that can provide consistently great pizza and I haven't found that place in Wichita yet.  I really like the local Gambino's, but they're a bit pricey unless you are able to take advantage of the limited coupons they offer.  

The other day while out-and-about running some errands during the lunch hour, I decided to stop at a Papa Murphy's.

Papa Murphy's Cowboy Pizza Thin CrustBoy am I glad I did!  It's been a long time since I've picked up a pizza at Papa Murphy's.  It's not that I had a bad experience with them back in the day, just chalk up the long time between visits to getting too comfortable with delivery pizza.  Shame on me!

Let me bullet point why Papa Murphy's rocks, why they are better than Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Domino's (YUCK) and yes, even Gambino's:

  • Generous with ingredients, especially the cheese!
  • Made to order, right in front of you when walking in.
  • Fast service, friendly staff
  • I can stop in a Papa Murphy's, order; take that pizza home; pop it in the oven; bake it; pull it out of the oven and slice it; before Pizza Hut finally shows up with a delivery.
  • No tip necessary!
  • Save money over what you would pay for a pie at one of the main delivery joints
  • Delicious!

I ordered a large 'Cowboy', thin crust.  I LOVE thin crust pizza!  For those of you not already in the know, the Cowboy is:  Red Sauce, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, Olives, Herb & Cheese Blend.  It's DELICIOUS! 

While the pizza was baking and filling my apartment with some FANTASTIC aromas, I had time to melt some garlic butter infused with Parmesan to brush on the crust.....  Talk about another dose of YUM!

The Papa Murphy's pie cost me $15.11 after tax.  That same large pie, with all those ingredients and a delivery tip would have cost me at least $20 coming from the delivery joints.  Did I mention how DELICIOUS Papa Murphy's pizza is?

Papa Murphy's is Bachelor on the Cheap friendly and gets 5 out of 5 stars, without question a repeat buy.
