Thin-Crust Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza (another Papa Murphy's knock-off)

Thin-Crust Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza recipe

I'm so excited to share our latest homemade pizza creation: Thin-Crust Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza!

Browsing the Papa Murphy's coupon flyers that come in the mail always makes me hungry, and a few weeks ago, I decided to make a homemade version of what was pictured on their ad. My Thin-Crust Chicken Bacon Artichoke Pizza (made with turkey bacon, of course) turned out really super yummy!

The crust is thin and buttery, declared "perfect" by Joshua -- a result of allowing the pizza dough to do a little rising after being pressed onto the pan. I tried to get a picture of just how lovely the crust turned out last week:

...and the flavor! I love experimenting with new flavors. This pizza is packed full of flavor, considering that of all the toppings, mozzarella cheese isn't dominant, unlike most of my other pizzas.

One of the joys of cooking: the awesome beauty of the food Yahweh has created! I love creating colorful meals...

My regular readers will recall our first Papa Murphy's pizza knock-off recipe -- the Mediterranean Herb Chicken Pizza -- created last fall after ordering take-and-bake pizza during a bout of pregnancy-related blahs. We've made that pizza numerous times and it remains a favorite. (So I guess... yay for morning sickness?!) :)

Do you have a favorite restaurant pizza knock-off recipe? I'd love to hear about it! My family has never complained about trying a new pizza! (Except Matzah Pizza -- but the complaints were silenced after the first bite!)


looks delish! I really am amazed at your pizza making skills! Your going to have to fill me in on how to keep mine from getting soggy.

Thank you! :)

Have you tried any of my pizza recipes? In my Easy Pizza recipe, I have lots of additional notes about pizza-- like, depending on the kind of pan you use, whether to place it on the bottom shelf or top shelf of the oven, etc... the kind of pan makes a big difference in how the crust cooks, but with a little experimentation (and obviously I recommend visiting my recipe and reading all my many notes on making homemade pizza!) I'm sure you can do it! :D

Dearest Tammy -

Please stop experimenting and posting your wonderful recipes. Our waistlines thank you.



Just kidding! Now I know what to do with those artichokes that are on sale at the store for $1 each. Sweet! We LOVE artichoke spinach dip here...and bacon makes everything better.

My daughters and I do not eat bacon due to our religion, so I was pleased to see it was turkey bacon because that means I don't have to worry how it will taste when I replace the regular bacon many recipes call for.. However, I am wondering if you have ever tried veggie bacon and if you think it might taste good on this? Also, maybe soy protein or soy chicken? I try not to mix milk and meat.


Hi Beth,

I haven't tried veggie bacon, soy protein, or soy chicken, but pizza is easy to experiment with and I think the veggie bacon especially would probably be a great substitute for the turkey bacon! :) Let me know how it turns out if you try it! :)

We recently did the Mediterranean chicken pizza and it was the best pizza I've ever had in my life!! (all agreed). We grilled it ( a first on our weber grill - also purchased per recommendations from your website as well as Amazon), and it was #1 favorite so far. Can't wait to try this.

I made this today for lunch and it was awesome! I love the version Papa Murphy's has and this has all of the flavor and none of the perservatives. This is also the BEST thin crust pizza that I've ever made and we've been through a dozen or so trying to find it. Thank you so much for sharing!

I made this pizza recipe this morning and it was awesome! So very very close to Papa Murphy's, but far less expensive and SO EASY. I'm thinking this will become a regular meal at my house :) Thank you, Tammy!

Thank you all for your excitement about the pizza recipe! :)

Just had the Papa Murphys version & it is great. Can't wait to try your recipe, it looks great too. On the recipe it asks for light or fat free italian dressing. Is that creamy italian dressing or that oil looking italian dressing stuff?

Thanks for the recipe's they look great & I'll be sure to let you know how it came out.


The fat-free Italian salad dressing is a clear-ish dressing with bits of onions, peppers, etc. floating around in it. I usually find Wishbone (my favorite) or Kraft brands on sale every now and then, so those are the brands I've tried, though any version that is "light" or "fat free" should work! :)

well first of all, i really appreciate for the recipe the pizza look awesome.

However I have one confusion, can I put Hot Spinach Artichoke dip over the crust -

and some leftover chicken pieces to sprinkle over and bake it with cheese??

Its just a wild thought that how would it taste??

Thanks in Advance :)
