VANCOUVER, Wash. – February 28, 2012 – Papa Murphy’s has combined two consumer favorites into what could be the take and bake pizza chain’s most unique creation to date – The Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza. It starts with Papa Murphy’s freshly made Original Crust that is topped with Burger Sauce, a blend of ketchup and mustard. Piled on top are generous portions of 100% real mozzarella cheese, ground beef, crispy bacon, fresh onions and Roma tomatoes. And it isn’t a cheeseburger without a layer of dill pickle chips. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of freshly grated cheddar.
“The testing phase of this pizza told us we’d have an instant fan favorite – people love the Bacon Cheeseburger,” said Jenifer Anhorn, chief marketing officer at Papa Murphy’s. “And the buzz has just continued to climb thanks to our passionate pizza fans on Facebook. A few customers have remarked about the pizza’s uncanny resemblance to a traditional bacon cheeseburger and now our fan base can’t wait to get their hands on it!”
The Bacon Cheeseburger is a premium-quality, budget-friendly pizza that bakes to perfection in a 425 degree oven for 12-18 minutes. Price and participation vary nationwide.
