You wouldn’t know it, but Vancouver-based Papa Murphy’s has become the country’s fifth-largest pizza chain by serving up pies that (contrary to all logic) you cook yourself. For better or worse, the chain’s just-launched Philly Cheesesteak pizza is out of the grasp of New Yorkers, but Miki and Radha Agrawal, the badass twin sisters behind Slice on the Upper East Side (also Canadians!), have launched a line of “build your own pizza kits” that will satisfy all your take-and-bake urges. Buy them for $7.99 at Gourmet Garage, Fairway, Zabars, or Garden of Eden, and you get (in separate baggies, never frozen) two slices of whole-wheat crust, all-natural marinara sauce, and low-fat organic mozzarella cheese. Cook them for about five to eight minutes et voilà — way better than zapping a half-pound pepperoni-and-cheese Hot Pocket! Or more dignified, anyway…
