Seven years in a row Papa Murphy's has been voted the best pizza chain in America.  Yet, they have no dining tables and no way to cook a pizza.  That's because they specialize in preparing a pizza for you to take home and bake.  There is something to be said for having a hot, fresh, cheesy pizza right out of the oven while you watch a football game or a movie.

Compared to other pizza places (including Dion's), Papa Murphy's pizza comes out a lot less greasy, even when you layer on the meat and they are definitely a lot better than a frozen pizza from the grocery store.

Instructions come with your pizza and detail how you can get the crispiest crust. Papa Murphy's also offers up chocolate chip cookie dough to take home and bake(not as good as home mixed but still good), also cheesy bread, and salads.

Papa Murphy's pizzas are also very affordable.  A large pizza with lots of toppings, as I normally get, comes to around $13.00.  You can check out the menu.

Papa Murhpy's has several locations: 
Rio Rancho: 1000 Rio Rancho Drive SE, 505-892-4555.
Bernalillo: 180 East Highway 550, 505- 771-0011.
Albuquerque: 8104 Wyoming Boulevard Northeast 505-822-8866; 2800 Coors Blvd NW 505-839-4700; 12611 Montgomery Blvd NE, 505-299-6200; 8400 Menual Blvd NE (505) 299-7272
