  •  I never order from a pizza chain (1+ / 0-)

    And I'm not saying that to buck up my lib credentials.  I don't care what the politics of Dominoes, or Papa Johns, or Pizza Hut are, and I never have.

    And that's because their pizza isn't good.  Period.  Which is amazing, because it really isn't too hard to make good pizza.  Just go to your yellow pages, look up "pizza" and order from the first place you don't recognize.  I can almost guarantee it will be better than any chain pizza.  It might - repeat, MIGHT - cost a few extra bucks, but if that is the difference between enjoying and not enjoying your meal, how is it not worth it?

    I never understood the popularity of crappy chain pizza, when every town in America that I've ever been to has so many independant options - which, like I said, are almost always substantially better.

    •  I couldn't agree more. (0+ / 0-)

      Maybe it''s because I am from metro NY but I've always thought that chain pizza places were for those locations where there were no individually owned ones. I could never figure out how Pizza Hut had any customers in Manhattan. Still don't. I guess I didn't realize they would be cheaper because I've never been to one. Even in my small town in VA we have two individually owned pizza joints. The owner of one of them hails from Long Island and their pizza has foldable slices. Just don't call it a pie. Most won't know what you mean. They recognized us as NY transplants when we did that!

      Which is how I was introduced to pizza as a four-year-old.  Even Pizza Hut is better than that.  So if you're comparing Pizza Hut to Jeno's, well, no-brainer.

      You can actually get a fairly decent pizza from a grocery store these days--nothing like a good local-store pizza, of course, but maybe a decent value for money.

      The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
