I like Papa Johns as best of the big chains.
When I was going to school in Boston, there was a place up the street called Woody's (Hemenway St, on the outskirts of the Northeastern U campus) that has a KILLER 5-cheese. Good salad too.
Randy's Wooster St Pizza is another good chain in CT.
For local joints, there's a place called Rossini's, for which green peppers and garlic are a must!
Hands down, #1 anywhere, anytime was Tony & Ann's of North Chelmsford, MA. Super thin and super sloppy, with a sweet sauce which cannot be repeated. Sadly, they closed in 2002, not long after Tony himself had passed on

I could not agree more, Tony and Ann's was the best I have ever tried. I never knew anyone who could not eat it with out a fork LOL...
If I remember right he opened it in 1948? It was a skit on the Simpons also. I can still hear Tony say "Give some to the kids" meaning the jar he had aside on the pick up window.
Everytime I drive by I still hope it's all a bad dream and he is still open. Every year before Xmas I would order 5 pizzas so I would have them till he opened back up in late Feb early March
If no one has tried Sam's club pizza give it a shot, it takes 10-15 mins to make so I order it when I get in the store and pick it up on the way out.
Family Pizza makes the best around here now in Dracut Ma. IMHO, no one will ever come close to Tony and Anns though

Quoting Newark777 (Reply 1): All chain pizza places are blown out of the water by the local places, however, especially the pizza places here in NJ and the NYC area.
I agree with that wholheartedly, I have been on the West Coast for a quite a few years now but grew up in South Jersey and really miss the diners, mom & pop places and especially panzerottis from Francos in Westmont.

All the frozen pizzas and pizzas from the UK chain restaurants (e.g. Pizza Hut, Pizza Express, Dominos etc) are tasteless and nothing other than a glorified sandwich.
For the best Pizza, you simply cannot beat a genuine family-owned Italian restaurant, where everything is freshly made on the premises, using the finest ingredients, and cooked in the traditional oven.
