I usually can stomach anything. Eat almost anything and never get sick. But one time which was the last time, ended up with food poisoning from PM's. No more for me.

Making pizza from scratch is so easy why not do it yourself?

Good pizza requires a real pizza oven. I think the coal fired ones are the best. The conveyor belt systems used by Dominos and other chains produce nothing better than the higher end frozen stuff.

I be happy if there was one in Gainesville.

The "Mighty Meaty" is a fine pizza!!

Spoiled pizza geek here. Mellow mushroom is trash. Never had this papa Murphy’s. Costco take n bake ain’t bad if I’m there buying other things and need dinner.

Have a soft spot for dominos. But it’s just that, dominos...it’s not pizza. Same way Taco Bell is just that, Taco Bell. It’s not Mexican food or tacos. But sometimes I just need it.

Never heard of Papa Murphy's. I'm assuming it's not just a supermarket brand? You order and pick up or get delivery of an uncooked pizza? What makes this better than adding an uncooked pizza during our weekly grocery order. It sounds like the chain does well in some places so I must be missing some detail.

You like Domino's and Taco Bell, and you think MM is trash? ..... Your taste buds have dementia!

Here’s a “Pro Tip,” cook your “Take and Bake” pizza in your pellet grill. It takes a little longer, but it’s pretty good.

Does not matter who you buy it from, who cooks it or doesn't, pizza here in Florida is the worst of the worst.

They have several here and are always crowded. Can get an XL pepperoni for $8 and their salads are the best.

best pizza to eat as far as reheating, the crust crisps up nice.

When I lived in Denver they were everywhere. Its a great concept. Pick up a pizza on your way home. Pizzas were big with lots of toppings. Good not great.

Fl is 25 years behind with everything. So we should start seeing them here soon.

I enjoy getting served in a sit down restaurant, but when we lived in Michigan, liked PM pizza. Get a stone pizza cooker for your oven, pre heat it. Makes a big difference

I've been in the pizza business. Rent and labor are the killers. Models that minimize these two cost centers work well. Those that don't can become victims of their own success. That's why Mellow Mushrooms, with great brand, product and beautiful high traffic locations, close down.

That's why I thought this concept would work but has failed in SWFL. Strip mall rent in B grade locations, 3-4 employees on shift, good pizza (in my opinion). Yes, you need to take it home in toss in oven.

I think it’s about convenient locations. At my old house I could order from work, pick it up on the way home, wife would preheat the oven and it was done 20 minutes after I got home.

now the papa Murphy’s is 10 minutes out of the way. So, it’s not worth it anymore.

I think it’s better than the other chain pizza restaurants. Dominos/papa johns/pizza hut. But, a ten minute drive gets me a local pizza joint take out now so I haven’t been to papa Murphy’s in years.

Distance to home also make a difference. If you've never been out west it can be hard to understand. If it's a 40 minute drive home a hot pizza is going to be shite by the time you get there. Papa Murphy's is a step above frozen.

We like Marco's.

They used to use fresh mushrooms, but have switched to canned now. Yuck.

Haven't been able to eat Pizza since my surgery several years ago, so I'm not current on the quality.
