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

The pepperoni is nice.
Careful, you are swaying me from my sworn promise that until their commercials change I will never try their pizza. Seriously I hear good old Jockamo and I just want to hurl.

tomatoes (more than most tomato sauces) most vegetables, sausage. anchovies, good cheese... (not so much plastic mozzarella).

One of my favorites (I call it "Summer Pizza" because you need really ripe tomatoes) is just tomatoes, garlic, fresh chopped herbs (basil, thyme, whatever's handy), salt and pepper, and then drizzle some very good evoo over it when it comes from the oven.

I love grilled eggplant on pizza, or sautéed spinach or broccoli rabe, and mozzarella,

My favorite "chain" pizza is Bertucci's Sporky.

Having lived in Rome for almost 5 years, I don't think I can stomach majority of pizzas produced elsewhere.

Before my Italy days, I never cared for either Dominos (and their cardboardy crust), Little Caesars or CPK.
I also noticed in many takeaway type pizza places in the UK used strange types of cheese not very suitable for pizza, which rather bugged me.
And in case they are considered as pizzas in fact, those horrid objects found in frozen food section (which are also commonly found in Italian supermarkets! ) could well be the worst pizzas.

Possibly! It has been so many years since I have been saddled with one of those, that I probably don't really remember just HOW bad they are! I learned how to make pizza when I was 10 (from my Sicilian Girl Scout leader) and have rarely resorted to a frozen pie. It's so easy to make it from scratch!

Can't say that Buck and I have ever had a bad pizza. That's largely because we're not big pizza eaters. We didn't even eat a lot of pizza when 3 of our sons (at different times in their lives) worked in pizza joints.

Never bought the ones in the freezer section of the market either. When we have pizza, we make our own, dough and all. Those, as someone has already mentioned, are the best. Easy, too.

When I was a child, my mother thought the Chef Boyardee ones in the box were the bomb!! Ugh! Even then I knew they were awful.

I have, but only once! I was in London for just a few days, on a holiday weekend, no less, and most restaurants were closed. I went to this kosher restaurant for pizza - I should have known better - kosher and pizza don't go together, at least not in this case. Anyway, the pizza was definitely the worst I ever had. It was 10 times worse than store-bought frozen. It tasted like a tv dinner. Ugh. I couldn't eat it.

The second worst pizza I ever had was here in NC at Villa Italian. It claimed to be New York Style - Ha! What a joke. I lived in NYC for over 18 years, and no pizza was ever like this. This one had the mushiest, breadiest crust I'd ever eaten, not to mention the tasteless sauce and plastic cheese. Awful. Luckily, I found a great pizza place nearby, so all's well.
