Papa Murphy’s is a popular take-and-bake pizza chain. Instead of baking their pizzas in-house, they make them fresh for you to finish cooking at home. Their refrigerated dough locks in flavor so you can bake authentic, delicious pizzas conveniently when you’re ready. Follow these simple instructions for cooking frozen pies from Papa Murphy’s using different methods.

1. How To Cook Papa Murphy’s Pizza in Oven

The oven produces the best results for baking take-and-bake pizzas. The high, dry heat crisps up the crust nicely while perfectly melting the cheeses.


Preheat your oven to 425°F. Place a pizza stone or inverted baking sheet on the middle oven rack (if you have one).

Remove all outer plastic wrap from your frozen Papa Murphy’s pizza. Place the pizza still on its cardboard round directly onto the preheated pizza stone or baking sheet.

Bake for 18-22 minutes until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is fully melted and bubbling. Your pizza is ready when the internal temperature reaches 140°F.

Carefully slide the baked pizza onto a cutting board. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • For a crisper crust, bake 2-3 minutes past the minimum time listed on the box.
  • Leave toppings like fresh vegetables or meats off until the last 5 minutes if they brown too quickly.

2. How To Cook Papa Murphy’s Pizza on a Traeger Grill

Traeger grills use wood pellets to infuse everything with a delicious smoky flavor. You can easily bake or grill your Papa Murphy’s pizza on one with fantastic results.


Pre-heat your Traeger grill to 375°F degrees. It’s hot enough for grilling when you can only keep your hand 3 inches over the grill for 4-5 seconds.

Remove all outer plastic from the frozen pizza. Place directly onto grill grates.

Close the lid and grill for 15-20 minutes until hot and bubbly, checking periodically.

For crispier crust, flip the pizza halfway through cook time. Open lid briefly then quickly close again to maintain interior heat.

Remove grilled pizza and let rest 5 minutes before cutting.


  • Sprinkle a little smoked paprika over the pizza before serving for extra flavor.
  • Get creative with additional toppings like pulled pork, onions or pineapple once pizza has partially baked.

3. How To Cook Papa Murphy’s Pizza in Microwave

While the microwave won’t produce the same crispy golden crust as the oven, it lets you quickly enjoy delicious Papa Murphy’s pizza on a hectic weeknight.


Remove all outer plastic wrap from your frozen pizza. Re-cover loosely with a paper towel or paper plate instead, which allows steam to escape.

Microwave on Medium-High power in 2-3 minute intervals until pizza is heated through, at least 6-9 minutes total depending on your appliance and pizza size.

Check periodically and rotate pizza between bursts for more even cooking. Let cool 1-2 minutes before slicing.


  • Sprinkle a bit of water onto the paper towel covering the pizza to produce extra steam and help melt the cheese.
  • Heat up leftover slices wrapped in a moist paper towel the next day for a quick meal.

No matter which appliance you use, Papa Murphy’s convenient unbaked pizzas make serving up a hot, house-made meal simple. Follow this guide for crispy, melted, mouthwatering pizza night after night.
