With more than 1,300 locations across the US and Canada, Papa Murphy’s take-and-bake pizzeria is the 5th largest pizza chain in the United States. The concept is unique in that you’re able to order a pizza that is prepared raw (unbaked) so you can bring it home and bake it yourself. And guess what? It’s easy to order vegan at Papa Murphy’s.
This take-and-bake model makes it easy to order a pizza base (crust, sauce, veggies, garlic, and spices), bring it home, and customize it further by adding your own plant-based meat and vegan cheese before popping it in the oven!
“When I was growing up, my parents both worked full-time and I often had pizza from a place called Papa Murphy’s. The point of Papa Murphy’s is to take-and-bake your pizza. You can place an order before leaving work, stop by on the way home, pick it up raw, and then bake it when you get home.” – Toni
There are tons of store-bought vegan meats and cheeses to choose from these days. Your vegan cheese options include: Daiya, Follow Your Heart, So Delicious, Parmela, Miyoko’s, and beyond. And for plant-based meat, the sky is the limit!

I personally still prefer home-cooked pizza, but this is great for a quick family dinner on a lazy night. I am also excited that many pizza shops are starting to include vegan cheese and plant-based meats on their menu. Some pizza chains that offer vegan cheese to look out for include: zPizza, Mellow Mushroom, Pizza Rev, Blaze Pizza, and Pie Five. Cheesy cheers to that!
