Nothing Says Valentine's Day Like Chocolate ... Pizza?

As if the pepperoni Heart-Shaped Pizza wasn’t enough to please Papa Murphy’s customers this Valentine’s Day, the take ‘n’ bake chain announced the launch of its S’mores Dessert Pizza. The decadent treat is made with real Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, mini marshmallows, and a crisp topping.

“Like some of our most popular pizzas, the S’mores Dessert Pizza evolved from feedback from our franchise owners and guests,” says Carron Harris, vice president of product development. “We tested it in several markets and the customer response was phenomenal. It’s a great addition to our dessert options.”   

The S’mores Dessert Pizza and Heart-Shaped Pizza are both budget-friendly products that are made fresh each day in Papa Murphy’s 1,200-plus locations and baked up hot in a customer’s oven. Price and participation varies nationwide.
