Papa Murphy's as a Starting Point?

In the past we've usually made our own pizza, mostly due to economy, not taste. Yes, it's better than delivery pizza, but not as good as a nice pizza parlor. But it sure is cheaper.

That is, until I came across Papa Murphy's. I finally tried it for the first time the other week and, for a delivery-style pizza, it was pretty darn good.

As a busy, working mom of 2 little kids I don't really have the time or energy to make pizza and clean up the mess. Throw in $3-4 for a bag of shredded cheese (yes, I don't use fresh mozzarella) and another $2-3 for yummy pepperoni and it doesn't even seem economical anymore.

But I do love my homemade sausage and my son likes olives, although the rest of us don't.

So, has anyone starting buying Papa Murphy's for the easy crust and adding other ingredients when you get home? If so, what's your favorite combination?
