This new Buffalo Chicken Pizza starts with Papa Murphy's original crust made from fresh, scratch-made dough and is topped with Frank's RedHot sauce, grilled chicken, green onions, Mozzarella, Provolone and Cheddar cheese, drizzled with creamy garlic sauce. All the vegetables and cheeses are hand sliced and hand grated in-store daily and every Buffalo Chicken Pizza comes with a side of Frank's RedHot sauce, while supplies last, so guests can further customize their pizza once it's hot out of the oven.
"Papa Murphy's new Buffalo Chicken Pizza makes a bold statement at dinnertime, for pizza fans who enjoy the spicy flavor of hot sauce with just the right amount of kick," said Ken Calwell, president and chief executive officer of Papa Murphy's. "Frank's RedHot is the perfect addition to any dinner and we are thrilled to give our customers a unique new pizza option perfect for the upcoming fall sports season."
"Consumers love Frank's RedHot because it's a fun brand," said Jeanne Hui, director of marketing, foodservice for The French's Food Company. "More importantly, our sauces deliver the perfect balance of heat and flavor. Since Papa Murphy's is one of the top U.S. pizza chains and known for having great tasting pizzas, we are extremely pleased about this relationship."
Like all Papa Murphy's menu items, the Buffalo Chicken Pizza is completely customizable from crust to toppings and customers can make their creation on gluten-free dough or add additional toppings from the Create-Your-Own line in-store. Guests take the Buffalo Chicken Pizza home and bake it at 425 degrees for 12 – 18 minutes in their own oven for a fresh, delicious and convenient dinnertime option.
