Though widely imitated in the recent past, the original Papa Murphy's Jack-O-Lantern Pizza is made right in front of customers with freshly-grated cheese and premium pepperoni slices, arranged to resemble a Jack-O-Lantern's face.  

"They are a favorite at our house," posts Jay, a Papa Murphy's Facebook Fan. "Kids love them and are counting down the days."

"It's our family tradition before we go trick-or-treating for the past three or so years," adds Manda, another fan.

Like Papa Murphy's other signature pizzas, the Jack-O-Lantern Pizza takes 12-18 minutes to bake in customers' home ovens. Price and participation varies nationwide.
