Worst pizza Experience I had ((and this will take some topping!) pun intended), was in 2000.
We flew all the way to Calgary in Canada from the UK, and tried to go to Venus Pizza, they are simply THE BEST pizzas on the planet! and I`d not had one in over 20 years!!!!!

turns out they had closed down several years prior

GB I had managed to forget, over these many years, that abomination that kept from trying me from eating real pizza. The 1960's elementary school pizza! The smell, look and taste, if we knew then what we know now, it would probably been classified as a boi-hazard.

I once spent almost two weeks just outside of Chicago I tried many places and none impressed me.I hate deep dish pizza. The one place that was pretty good was a chain there called Home Run Pizza. At home I live so far from town so delivery isn't going to happen.The grocery store in town has started carrying a frozen brand called Palermos they only carry the thin crust which is what I like anyway but that pizza is by far the best frozen pizza Ive had so far. When I travel I usually get pizza delivered to my room at least I know what to expect from Dominos. Little Ceasar and Papa Johns are terrible and I'm afraid to try the local places as I haven't had much luck with them.
I think Pizza Hut could be good if they just didn't screw around with the meat lovers,cheese stuffed crusts,double crusts etc. I also have not mastered pizza at home they are all right but again I'm tired of my own cooking.I have made with success parbaked crusts and added sauce,cheese etc and frozen them for later.Works good.

If you really want a ULTRA thin crust frozen pizza:
Palermos Is Pizza

The pepperoni is nice.

Their Supreme is good also real strips of bellpepper,onions thick slices of Pepperoni,real sausage etc and the sauce is good.No little cut up squares of cheap stuff.And the vegetables look and taste really fresh.By far better quality ingredients the most of the other brands.You would be pleasantly surprised how generous they are with the toppings.

It's really hard to mess pizza up... but it can be done. While vacationing in Mexico, we found a Pizza Inn down there. We were dying for the taste of American food so we went in and ordered a pizza. Not that the pizza was bad, but what I found odd was the slices of carrot on the pizza. Actually it was more part of the pizza sauce... big slices of carrot... that was kind of a turn-off for me. What was the deal with the carrot?
