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!
UPDATE: Now that Papa Murphy’s is now offering vegan cheese on-site, you can go ahead and have a pizza date with your favorite person and enjoy a dairy-free pizza pie with all the plant-based toppings.
Luckily, we’ve collected all of the knead-to-know menu details so you can have the best slice, slice, baby at Papa Murphy’s.
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!
There aren’t a ton of choices, but you have three crust options, six sauces to consider, about twenty veggie variations, and also the vegan cheese vs. no cheese dilemma. If you can make those three decisions, you’re on your way to pizza heaven. Here’s a handy outline, just in case:
Here’s what you can order from the menu at Papa Murphy’s. Though it might seem sparse, you can actually order one or two large pizzas with tons of vegan cheese (or go cheese-less), sauce, and veggies. Add a couple of salads and you’ll be very close to your veggie goal for the day!
Most of the salads can be made vegan-friendly by requesting no meat and no cheese, or swapping out the dairy cheese for vegan cheese. The only exception is the caesar salad, which would leave you with only romaine lettuce and not much else. For the salads below, just swap out the dairy cheese for vegan cheese or leave it out all together.
Here is the vegan Papa Murphy’s pizza you can create by adding your own vegan cheese, veggie meat, and more. Doesn’t it look delicious?
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!

Although Papa Murphy’s has not yet included any fully vegan pizzas to their menu, we’re very excited that they’ve finally added a delicious dairy-free cheese. Viva, Violife! Since there are more and more vegan-friendly pizza options on the fast food front, we have high hopes that Papa Murphy’s might rise to the top with their plant-based food options. Wouldn’t it be incredible if they agreed to offer vegan mozzarella sticks, plant-based pepperoni, or dairy-free cheezy breadsticks on their menu? In the meantime, we can always write to, call, or contact the managers of any location to make our requests.
