    After an engaging discussion in the shoutbox today, I was divinely inspired to make this thread.

    For me, it goes like this:

    4.) Pizza Hut - Tastes pretty bad and is expensive. Their sauce is way to sweet and they put like no cheese on their pizzas.

    3.) Little Caesar's - Tastes "ehhh" but is really cheap, which is nice. They have a delicious pretzel pizza for $8, and the standard pizzas are only $5.

    2.) Papa John's - Definitely the most visually attractive pizza (yes this matters). Tastes a little doughy but the sauce and cheese taste great. Not too expensive either. Points for the free garlic dip.

    1.) Domino's - Their recently changed recipe tastes amazing and they're not expensive at all. Hands-down winner for me.

    A local restaurant.

    Their pizza is tasty, a bit spycy, and they offer a lot of filling choices.

    Named "Barba's Pizza" :P

    I prefer the ones that are local and not franchised next to my school. $1.50 for a huge slice, 75 cents for a drink. Pretty much all you need if you are looking for a lunch outdoors or indoors.

    Domino's is quite excellent in my area - I mean, you can't beat the cheesy bites crust, c'mon. That being said, I wish this was a multiple choice poll since Pizza Hut isn't far behind where I live, not to mention a couple of "mom and pops" establishments back in Poland. Anywho, as of today, my local Domino's is great 9 out of 10 times.

    Well Pizza Hut packed up and abandoned my little town, and I'd need to drive almost 20 miles away to get stuffed crust now :( My go-to has become Little Ceasars and I'm really happy with their inventive pies and compelling advertisements. If it's 4:21am 7-11 can suffice in a pinch, $5.55 large cheese not *too* bad.

    Hungry Howies. They have flavored crust pizza and its great. Nothing beats the butter parmesan flavor. They literally dump liquid butter on the pizza and sprinkle it with parmesan cheese.

    Pizza Hut is my favorite since even though it's more far away it has more flavor than Westside Pizza.
    I had Domino's and remember it tasting amazing but that was a long time ago. I'd like to try it again.
    I also like Subway's pizzas. (Yes, they have pizzas)
    Little Caesar's was kinda stale, but it might have been because it was old.
    Not as bad as Digiorno pizzas, though. Those are greasy as hell.

    It really depends what time of day you go, but if you ask they'll [in my experience] make you a fresh one, rather than "hot-n-ready" from the warming cabinet.

    Domino's here has a great Brooklyn-styled pizza, but there's a local joint here that I love to order from. It's all fresh and so much better than any of the chains here. You can order for delivery, although it's an hour-long wait, but it's so fucking worth it in the end.

    Especially their cheese pizza. It's like a super-gooey cheesy greasy slab of happiness.

    We have a good Domino's here, and no real local pizza places. So that's an easy choice for me. Pizza Hut is good but it's way too expensive for pizza barely better than Domino's. Little Caesars is garbage, their sauce is like 10 lbs of sugar to every spoonful of tomato. Disgusting.
    I kinda miss the excellent cheap pizzas I had in Finland.

    I hear a lot of good about "Home Slice", but seeing that it's an American joint, it's hard for me to verify whether they're any good. Rumour has it that they "ship water from NY to give you that authentic New York-style pizza", that's a bit excessive, not to mention that NY-style is just a flat slab of dough with sauce and cheese - nothing to write home about, really. Pizza needs toppings, yo.



    While I disagree on the pepperoni point (what? I like the grease, I'm filthy like that. As for sodium nitrate, it's used in a variety of meat products, not just salami, it's kind of a "traditional" ingredient in curing), but he's spot-on about plain cheese pizza - if you order plain cheese, eat a f*cking grilled cheese. And go home, we're not friends anymore.
