I had the most delicious treat tonight!
I had heard that there was a Papa Murphy's Take 'n Bake Pizza in Bryant.
That's about 20 minutes south of us.
I had never ventured to it, but always had it in the back of my mind to go there after searching for some rare thing that took me to the Benton Target.
Today, W had an auto claim in Bryant. I gasped, asked which shop he was going to, mapped it out on google and discovered that he would be exactly 0.7 miles from the Bryant Papa Murphy's!!!
I got that excited about a pizza that you bake at home.
But it's been over 3 years!
My Papa Murphy's initiation was early. I was a junior at Utah State, and my study partner fed us dinner while we studied for Prof. Simonsmeier's exam in the most boring class I ever took in my major-sorry Professor! The study session was only kept going by the heavenly smells of garlic chicken pizza in her oven.
I introduced it to my skeptical husband after we were married and I discovered, to my great delight, that Papa Murphy's was also in the Minneapolis area! Papa Murphy's makes heart shaped Valentine's pizzas and pumpkin-shaped Halloween pizzas. Papa Murphy's was the highlight of many get togethers with my work ladies. Their pizzas are heavenly! They have a tangy sauce and spicy pepperoni.
But my heart belongs to this one!It's the gourmet Vegetarian, but we add chicken to it... because I love chicken.
It has a creamy garlic sauce instead of marina, tons of stringy, stretchy cheese, plus a boatload of mushrooms, tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, onions, artichoke hearts and more! I love love love it!
It was worth a late dinner, waiting for W to finish his claim and pick up pizza. It was worth going all the way to Bryant to get it.
It was worth the three year wait.
And I'm sure we won't be waiting that long next time!
