We are thinking of cooking a Papa Murphy pizza on the Egg.  Can you all tell me how to do it?

Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the club, I do two a week and am sold. Egg to 450 or 500, Place setter feet down and if you have the feet put them under the stone. I just am using my feet now so I cut 1" copper pieces and let my pizza stone rest on that.

    You can cook it in the cardboard they give you but you might get hot spots where it will burn it so watch and rotate.

    About 5 Min or so into the cook you should be able to take the card board out if you like. But to be honest it doesnt matter.

    Here is what it looks like. I am sold on the PM.

    Tuttle - My brother lives in Dallas with a medium.  Yall should hook up.  Do you close the lid?  What is total cooking time?

    My advice, the crust burns easy.  Don't cook at higher temps than the instructions recommend.  Don't preheat your pizza stone very long (< 20 minutes).  I've burned more crusts than I've had turn out good.

    Yep close the lid and let her rip inside,  thats what gives it a great flavor. My best friend lives in Coopersburg and is a PSU grad. He is not doing well right now and hates me screwing with him.

  • I take parchment paper with me and have Papa Murphy's put under my pizzas. After 1 min. on the stone at 450 you can slide the paper out. Rotate pizza on the stone two or three times during the cook for a consistent crust. If you cook at higher temps, stick to one or two topping pizzas. On the supreme I burnt the crust before the toppings were done. Also, my favorite pizza of all time is the Thai Chicken at Pappa Murphy's.

    Ousted the cardboard for my first one, cooked at lower temps and had a few hot spots. I didn't have a stone yet and placed foil on the plate setter (feet down). It came out pretty well for my first one though. Taste was great

    A bit off topic, but in my area PMs is doing 2 large one topping pizzas for $10 Monday through Wed. Hard to beat that. Wonder if you can freeze them since that is more than I can eat by myself and Mrs. G is outta town again.

    Yep I usually buy them on Monday and the make one that night and freeze the other. Comes out just fine. I usally buy other ingredients at the store and then make it my deluxe.

    I prefer to freeze them before I cook them. I put them on the egg frozen that way they come right off the paper tray onto a hot pizza stone. They are done in about the same amount of time.

    I'm lost, are you guys going to a local pizza shop and buying a raw pizza? I cannot find a place like that around me. Seems cool though.

    Papa Murphy's is "Take 'N' Bake pizza. They sell pizzas that are ready to be cooked.

    Michigan style pizza down South.  These pies are off the chart and have won many raves from my friends. Pizzas are on hold right now because its just too damn hot to be standing out there cooking pies.  Prepping and staging homemade dough in this hot humid weather is not fun.  When I do my pizza cooks I generally do about 8 to 10 14" diameter pizzas and a couple calzones.  One pie comes off every 12 minutes.  I was in the business for years, so I have an advantage.  It is still fun to amaze everyone and it really is not that difficult. Preparation and organization is all it takes.

    When I cook a Papa Murphy's pizza, I cook it at 425 for 20 - 25 minutes.  The cooking time will vary depending on how thick they put on the toppings.  I have cooked three pizzas the last few weeks and they turned out perfect everytime.
