Made fresh-to-order, Jack-O-Lantern Pizzas, frequently referred to as the Jack-O, will be available nationwide for a limited time at participating Papa Murphy’s locations through October 31, 2017. There will be two size options: large and family size.Customers can also celebrate the Halloween season and indulge their sweet tooth with the Scream of a Deal offer. Papa Murphy’s will be offering one pound of their favorite, ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookie dough along with the Jack-O Pizza for a discounted price for a perfectly sweet pairing.
“For years, our customers have relied on Papa Murphy’s for a fresh and convenient meal before a night of Halloween festivities and trick-or-treating, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Jack-O back to our stores,” said Jeff Shamburger, senior vice president of marketing for Papa Murphy’s. “We’re here to make life a little simpler, with really delicious food, and we love celebrating Halloween and National Pizza Month with all of our fans.”
Each Jack-O Pizza at Papa Murphy’s begins with fresh, scratch-made dough in the shape of a pumpkin, topped with traditional red sauce and 100 percent whole-milk mozzarella grated in store daily. Premium pepperoni is placed into a smiling Jack-O-Lantern face with olives as eyes. The festive pizza is ready to be served fresh out of the oven after it is baked just 12 to 18 minutes at 425 degrees.
In anticipation of the spookiest night of the year, Papa Murphy’s is also hosting a social media photo contest for a chance to win one of five Papa Murphy’s gift cards.
