Papa Murphy’s Holdings Inc. announced the return of two Mexican-inspired pizzas just in time for Cinco de Mayo. The bold and zesty flavors of the Taco Grande and Steak Fajita pizzas have quickly become favorites among Papa Murphy’s fans and are the perfect way to add some sizzle to any Cinco de Mayo celebration. The Steak Fajita and Taco Grande pizzas will be available at all participating Papa Murphy’s locations nationwide from April 26 through May 30.

“We invite the entire family to add a Mexican twist to dinner any night of the week or at Cinco de Mayo fiestas this year with the return of the Taco Grande and Steak Fajita pizzas,” says Lisa Larouche, senior manager, category marketing of Papa Murphy’s International. “We’re thrilled to bring back these two fan favorites and continue our tradition of creating fun family memories around a wholesome meal that is baked fresh in our consumers’ ovens.”

The Taco Grande pizza starts with a customer’s choice of Papa Murphy’s crust made from fresh, scratch-made dough. It is then topped with generous portions of 100 percent whole-milk Mozzarella cheese grated in-store daily, a mixture of salsa and refried beans, taco seasoning, a choice of chicken or beef, Roma tomatoes, mixed onions, black olives, and fresh-grated Cheddar cheese.

Each made-to-order Steak Fajita pizza consists of Papa Murphy’s artisan thin crust made from fresh, scratch-made dough and is topped with fresh grated 100 percent whole-milk Mozzarella cheese, Angus Steak, refried beans, salsa, sliced green bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, Provolone, and Cheddar cheeses.

Guests can take their delicious creations home and bake them at 425 degrees for 12–18 minutes to serve a fresh Mexican-inspired dinner hot out of the oven. Like all Papa Murphy’s menu items, the Taco Grande and Steak Fajita pizzas are completely customizable and customers can add additional toppings from the Create Your Own line in store.

Looking to spice up your family’s dinner or Cinco de Mayo party in a snap? Set up a topping bar at home to encourage your family and friends to get creative and try these Mexican-themed pizza hacks:

  • Fresh factor: After baking, garnish your pizza with cilantro, diced avocado, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a refreshing boost of citrus flavor to brighten your meal.
  • Turn up the heat: Add rich, tangy jalapeños before baking to create another flavor dimension.
