#SpiceYourSlice with Frank's RedHot from Papa Murphy's

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post about Papa Murphy’s and their new Buffalo Chicken pizza featuring Frank’s RedHot. All opinions and statements remain 100% my own. #SpiceYourSlice #Ad


Sometimes, a little break from the "norm" is all you need to change up weeknight dinner monotony - am I right? My kids are on a special allergen-free diet, so our meal options are sometimes limited. So what does that mean? Sometimes, I have to spice it up after the kids are in bed with a late-night snack! When the kids are sleeping, I don't have the freedom to just hop in the car and grab takeout, but with a little advance planning and the take and bake pizza restaurant right around the corner, I'm able to have a yummy option waiting in my fridge at the end of the night.


Papa Murphy's has introduced a fresh pizza to their menu this fall: Buffalo Chicken. The pizza is made with a spicy buffalo sauce made with Frank’s RedHot sauce, grilled chicken, mozzarella, green
onions, provolone and cheddar cheese, and then drizzled all over with Creamy Garlic Sauce.

Normally, I'm not very adventurous with my pizza, but this option is definitely intriguing! The hot sauce is not as hot as I expected, and the garlic sauce adds a unique taste. The chicken is my favorite part...or maybe the cheese. Yum!


Papa Murphy's is now offering online ordering at many locations (awesome news), and they are the world's largest take and bake pizza chain restaurant. I love take and bake pizza, because I can pick it up early in the day and have it ready for whatever meal or event we have planned!


My perfect pizza usually just features cheese and pineapple, but trying out the new Buffalo Chicken pizza was a fun break from routine!


What do you think? Would you try the new Buffalo Chicken pizza from Papa Murphy's?
