Arguing over which pizza is bad?


I love pizza. Don't care which place I call, it's all good. :-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Pizza Hut is ok and Papa John's is gawd-awful.

But seriously, how many people live in a town where the best pizza comes from one of those places? Most places have a local joint that blows the national chains out of the water.

I worked at Pizza Hut for 6 years. When we would have our team meetings to discuss where we ranked in consumer polls, I remember that no one chain store could ever beat out the "Mom & Pop" stores. That data was as a whole, though.

Personally, I think that there are many local stores that flat-out suck. There are quite a few in the St. Louis-area that I cannot stand - Cecil Whitakers, Fortel's Pizza Den, Tomatoes Pizzaria. In comparison, I usually find that the local stores' dough is flat, and the sauce is be bland.

Uno's Pizzaria is one big exception to that. Gotta love that thick, greasy Chicago-style crust.

It's all about finding that right local pizza shop... it's true that many of them make sub-par pizza. Look for a shop that is run by real Italians, you usually can't go wrong. A lot of these places usually have great weekly specials too. In those regards, I think they blow chains out of the water.

Also, pizza is the number one "fast food" in America... that is, more people eat pizza, whether from a local or chain place, than they eat at burger places combined.

Typically I prefer Papa Johns over Pizza Hut and Pizza Hut over Dominoes. Pizarria Uno is great because it's different and the experience is like a real sit-down restaurant... their menu is usually pretty innovative. I love their soup!

I don't doubt it, believe me, finding a place to eat in south-central Pennsylvania is a chore at best. Ever have Pennsylvania Dutch food? The main ingredient in everything is cardboard (or so it seems).
