I've had Pappa Johns once or twice, and it's been pretty good. I'm a fan of Dominos also, since it's dirt cheap and not too bad when you're really hungry.

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.

Of the big chains, definately Papa Johns. Locally here in San Diego, a place called The Venetian is wonderful, and in Hawaii a local chain called Boston's North End Pizza is excellent.

I'd like to know who makes the best frozen pizza. All the ones I tried are terrible. Does anybody make a good frozen pizza?

I really don't care much for the larger chains in general, but Papa Johns would have to be my choice from that bunch.

As for the best local pizza, I've found nothing better than "Hot Lips Pizza" down in Portland. Just the best.  drool

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!  drool 

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  Sad  tombstone

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  Sad

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  Sad

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.

Really Harry? Dominos around here is some of the most expensive pizza. Don't get me wrong, they have a good product, but it's not cheap.

Most of my local pizza shops near my house, make a better pizza. I like local pizzaria pizza the best.

For gourmet pizza, nobody beats California Pizza Kitchen.

Then of course, when in Chicago, The Chicago Oven Grinder and Pizza Co. with their "Pizza Pot Pie" can't be beat.

Most of the time, we chip in for the 555 deal, so that's not too bad. The local pizza place near our school has $5 pies of pizza on weeknights, though, and that is hard to beat. You chip in with another person, and you essentially get half of a really good pie for $3.

My favorite pizza of all time, and it has been more than 15 years since I have had it and I still remember its greatness, is Wa-Pa-Ghetti's pizza http://www.ylunch.com/wheeling/wapaghettis/wapaghettis.html in the northwestern Chicago suburbs. It has a great heavy dough and layered w/ cheese. I need to go back to Chicago JUST for that pizza, and hot dogs from Wolfy's, and a pizza from Uno's or Gino's East....

A second place would be Barro's in Phoenix, mostly in the east valley. Similar to the Wa-Pa-Ghetti's pizza, just not as heavy. Its still a traditional non-deepdish Chicago style pizza.

Of the chains Papa John's is the best, unfortunately there isn't one up here in Os. Pizza Hut is good when you are craving pizza with your grease. Domino's, while not the best, has a quality and consistent product with good service. Plus I am a fan of their wings.

But with just me and Jr, that doesn't work for us.
Around here, we usually order a medium onion, 1/2 sausage, with an order of cinnamon sticks, and the tab is nearly $16.00!

Most of the local pizzarias have $5 pizzas, but that's too cheap for them to deliver. Jr likes the cinnamon sticks, so sometimes I splurge and we do Dominos, in spite of the $$$.
