Papa Murphy’s Brings the Sweet Heat with New Thai Chicken deLITE® Pizza
VANCOUVER, Wash. – May 31, 2011 – Papa Murphy’s International is now offering Thailand’s distinctive flavors with the launch of its newest take ‘n’ bake pizza - The Thai Chicken deLITE. Beginning with a cracker-thin crust, the pizza is topped with sweet chili sauce, 100 percent real mozzarella cheese, zucchini, grilled chicken, a mix of white, red and green onions, and finished with a dusting of crushed red pepper flakes. Price and participation varies nationwide.
“The sweetness of the chili sauce, the heat of the red pepper flakes and the creaminess of the mozzarella converge with the grilled chicken and fresh, crunchy zucchini for a nice balance of flavors and textures,” said Carron Harris, VP of product development. “The new Thai Chicken deLITE performed very well in consumer testing, plus our franchise owners couldn’t wait to get it in their stores. All signs indicate this pizza should be another customer favorite!”
The Thai Chicken deLITE joins a variety of others in the thin crust pizza line, including the Veggie, Herb Chicken Mediterranean and Chicken Bacon Artichoke deLITE Pizzas. The entire pizza line is now available in Papa Murphy’s 16-inch Family Size, each taking only 10 to 12 minutes to bake in customers’ home ovens.
