Agreed, unless you live in a major metro with an old mom & pop, the only way to get a good pie is to make your own....

I say stay away from the cheaper brands of frozen pizzas like Tombstone and go with the more expensive brands like Palermo's, Freschetta, and DiGiorno.

The worst one I've seen is one I made, actually. My yeast was past the use-by date, so I doubled the amount.
I can't get bread to rise, but that pizza crust sure did. I kid you not...it got six inches high. I poked holes in it, and even tried slapping it with a spatula, but it kept puffing back up.
We had company that night, and ended up getting a lot of entertainment out of the pizza that ate West City. Actually, it didn't taste bad...we just munched on the toppings and pinched off pieces of the "crust" to go with.

I have to say that I don't consider Domino's Pizza. It is SO bad. Disgusting

however, when I was living in San Diego, I discovered that San Diegans like a topping of ham and pineapple on their pizza. Now I love ham and pineapple, and I love pizza, but to me, together, that's awful...

I also find pepperoni distasteful, but I am okay with pulling it off if whomever I'm sharing it with insists on getting that gunk.

I had to give you karma for the long belly laugh-- and you're honest enough to admit that you put too much pizzazz into your pizza--why does a Lucy Ricardo episode come to mind?

So, what do you like on a pizza?

probably Dominos...spongy crust and insufficient sauce and cheese.

I'd have to say that Papa John's is among the worst I've ever had. Domino's is up there as well. However, I come from the Chicago area, and Chicago is a good pizza kind of town. There's few things I love to eat more than a good old Chicago style deep dish.

OMG I love those for convenience and inexpensive after work meals. Of course, I've never heard of anyone that made them out of tomato paste, we use Ragu or whatever spaghetti sauce I have around and Thomas' English Muffins instead of cheap store brands.
