Why you’ll love it
Don’t tell Ed Elliott you’re not supposed to choose favorites. The marketing director for Liberty Lake Papa Murphy’s and five other Inland Northwest franchises has spent the better part of two decades making, baking and sampling every pizza on the Papa Murphy’s menu.
But bump into him leaving the store on a Friday night with a take-home pie? It’s going to be the Herb Chicken Mediterranean.
“Honestly, it’s the healthiest, best-tasting pizza I’ve ever had,” he said. “I’ve been doing this for a long time. I still eat that pizza. I’ve never burned out on it.”
For Elliott, the allure begins with a “very Italian, really simple sauce” consisting of chopped garlic in olive oil. A bit of added Greek influence give the pizza its Mediterranean name.
About the only thing he likes better at Papa Murphy’s than the Herb Chicken Mediterranean is the team he works with every day. From the Liberty Lake crew, to the teams at the other locations, to the local, family ownership, Elliott is proud how every person is truly “part of the family.”
The local franchise is operated by a business founded in Hayden in 1992 by Inland Northwest residents Bill and G’Nell DeLack.
