When I wrote about frugal and healthy Friday night pizza, I mentioned wanting to recreate Papa Murphy's Gourmet Chicken Garlic Pizza. I had no idea it would be easy to recreate this, so I was pleasantly surprised when the first try was super close to perfect!
This knock-off version of Papa Murphy's Gourmet Garlic Chicken Pizza tastes amazingly just like Papa Murphy's! If you love Papa Murphy's Chicken Garlic Pizza, you've got to try this homemade version. I am in love! Really. It's so good I can't think of anything to say except that it's REALLY GOOD and you should make it yourself. Soon. :)
What else is there to say? Papa Murphy's Gourmet Chicken Garlic Pizza is my favorite of their pizzas. Creamy, crispy, cheesy, and permeated with the fragrant aroma of garlic, homemade pizza doesn't get much better than this. Or easier. Or cheaper, really. (Just don't try to buy tomatoes off-season and without a sale like I did! Oops!)
If you read the recipe notes, you'll notice that Joshua and I have a difference of opinion as to the amount of garlic that should be used in the sauce for this recipe.
I love garlic and enjoyed having a heaping packed tablespoon of garlic in the sauce. YUM! It wasn't too garlicky for me at all. At Joshua's request, I have also made this recipe using 1/2 that amount of garlic, which Joshua says is just perfect and closer to the Papa Murphy's flavor. So, take your pick and tell me what you like! :)
Are you a Papa Murphy's fan like I am? If so, tell me which of their pizzas I should attempt to recreate next! :)
