VANCOUVER, Wash. – February 2, 2011 – As if the delicious, pepperoni Heart-Shaped Pizza wasn’t enough to please Papa Murphy’s customers this Valentine’s Day, the take ‘n’ bake chain announced today the launch of its S’mores Dessert Pizza. The decadent treat is made with real Hershey’s® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, mini marshmallows and a delicious crisp topping. The S’mores Dessert Pizza paired with the Heart-Shaped Pizza is the perfect solution for a couple’s sweet and savory cravings this Valentine’s Day.

“Like some of our most popular pizzas, the S’mores Dessert Pizza evolved from feedback from our franchise owners and guests,” said Carron Harris, VP of product development. “We tested it in several markets and the customer response was phenomenal! It’s a great addition to our dessert options.”

The S’mores Dessert Pizza and Heart-Shaped Pizza are both budget-friendly products that are made fresh each day in Papa Murphy’s 1,200+ locations and baked up hot in a customer’s oven. Price and participation varies nationwide.
