Shakeys is awful stuff. I once met the owners of that place and they refused to eat in their restaurants. Their pizza was so bad it be better to put ketchup on the box and toss the pizza, and I do not like ketchup.

This little place in Olangapo, Phillipines. Some of the best food I ever ate was in the Phillipines. But this place's idea of pizza was Cambells tomato soup spread on a thin crust and baked with a bit of processed cheese on top.

Stateside, there's a place in Lakeside, Ca. that serves these pizzas that are about 2 1/2 feet wide. They are very large, and very plain.

Some of the best pizza I know of is served in one of the worst pizza places I know of. The pizza is like a giant Calzone and is just incredible. The sauce is great, the meat is great, the cheese is great, all the ingredients they have are great. And the flavor is great. Unfortunately, the place is badly mismanaged and home to unsavory after-hours practices. At least, that's the rumor. I won't name the place. I would hate to be the cause of trouble if the rumors are untrue.

All I will say is that they call their product a pizza pastie, and it's just incredible.

Round Table, Yech!! I must say that I really don't care for most chain pizza places. The best ones are usually the mom and pop places. We have a new one in the town about 30 miles from here that is excellent. One pizza I had from them had feta, sundried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts. It was sooo goood!!
