Though convenient, pizza stored in a freezer often loses its taste or is devoured by the polar bear on a nearby Klondike-bar wrapper. Enjoy the fruits of freshly made pies with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of take-and-bake pizza at Papa Murphy's. Choose from five locations: South Minnesota Avenue, 2101 West 41st Street, South Sycamore Avenue, or 6725 West 41st Street in Sioux Falls, or North Main Street in Mitchell.
Crowned Best Pizza Chain in America by the Restaurants and Institutions Consumers' Choice in Chains 2009, Papa Murphy's concocts a menu of freshly prepared pies to be baked in customers’ own ovens, ensuring that each hand-crafted crust reaches the table piping hot. Mozzarella and traditional red-sauce commuters fight to find a seat on the five-meat stuffed pizza, crowded with canadian bacon, pepperoni, bacon, ground beef, and an italian sausage that won't get off its cell phone ($16 for a large). Four types of thin crust deLite pizzas stocked with veggies, herbed chicken, or a trio of meats boast 40% fewer calories and 30% less fat than their original-crust brethren ($12 for a large). Alternatively, customers can unleash their creative freedom on a create-your-own pizza ($10–$12) slathered in their choice of traditional red, herb tomato, or creamy garlic sauces and a plethora of toppings such as spinach, jalapeños, or abstract-expressionist salami patterns ($1.25 each additional topping).
