Papa Murphy's Serves Up Something to Taco-Bout With the Return of the Taco Grande Pizza

VANCOUVER, Wash., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Papa Murphy's Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:FRSH), the world's leading take 'n' bake pizza franchise, is excited to announce the return of its fan favorite Taco Grande Pizza for a limited time only. Two of the world's favorite foods, tacos and pizza have joined forces and the result is a craveable and delicious meal for the whole family. The Taco Grande Pizza, which combines the bold, distinct flavors of a taco with fresh ingredients and Papa Murphy's signature dough made in-store daily, will be available at participating Papa Murphy's locations nationwide beginning April 28 through May 18.

"We invite our fans to add a creative twist to the usual Taco Tuesday dinner or this year's Cinco de Mayo fiesta by trying one of our all-time favorite pizzas, the Taco Grande," said Michael Miyahara, corporate chef, director of product development of Papa Murphy's. "The Taco Grande pizza is a fusion of savory flavors that has satisfied Papa Murphy's pizza fans of all ages for over seven years."

Every Taco Grande Pizza starts with your choice of Papa Murphy's crust made from fresh, scratch-made dough and topped with generous portions of 100 percent whole-milk mozzarella cheese grated in-store daily, a mixture of salsa and refried beans, taco seasoning, a choice of chicken or beef, Roma tomatoes, mixed onions, black olives and fresh grated cheddar cheese. Customers can take their delicious Taco Grande creation and bake it at 425 degrees for 12 – 18 minutes and serve a fresh, hot pizza baked with love in their own oven.

Make your family's dinner or Cinco de Mayo party even more customizable and fun by trying one of these Mexican-themed pizza hacks:

  • Add to the fresh factor: Add cilantro and diced avocado after baking for an additional boost of authentic Mexican flavor.
  • Punch up the crunch: Top with crushed tortilla chips after baking for extra crunch.
  • Add come spice: Pump up the heat with some jalapeños.
  • Create your own Taco Pizza bar: Set up a toppings bar at home and let your family add their own creative touch once it's out of the oven (like sour cream, red pepper flakes, salsa verde, and hot sauce).
