VANCOUVER, WASH. — Papa Murphy’s International, the fifth-largest pizza chain in the United States, announced that it has eliminated trans fat from its entire take ‘n’ bake pizza line.
"We were voted the best in the pizza business five times in a row by consumers because we offer a quality product that’s baked in our customers’ ovens, which, for many people, qualifies it as a home-cooked meal," said Clarice Turner, president and chief operating officer. "As a wife and a mom, I try to be very careful about not feeding my family anything with potentially harmful ingredients, and our customers shouldn't have to either."
Papa Murphy's operates more than 1,000 locations in 30 states and Canada. In addition to handmade pizzas, the company offers Cheesy Bread, Cinnamon Wheels, chocolate chip cookie dough and salads.
