What is the worst pizza you have had?

I came across the Thread from 04 while looking for something else. I thought it would be interesting to see how tings have or have not changed. Mine are Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, Domino's and Pizza Boli

There's no such thing as a bad pizza

If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry? ~Author Unknown

George's, somewhere near Surbridge Mass.
There was another place near Point Sebago Maine that was a close second.

Pizzerias by me are excellent. The cookie cutter's like Pizza Hut/Dominos are just disgusting. I have a very keen palate when it come to my circular friend. I can only eat pizza from Jersey.

Oh....and sausage should actually look like sausage and not little brown pellets.

You obviously have not had pizza in England!!!!!! Most pizza here is awful except for one place that is a bit far from our house and does not deliver!

This may anger a few, but the worse I ever had was in New York City. And, yes, I tried them all over N.Y. I lived there a year.
I couldn't believe they called that cardboard, with no toppings... pizza. In their defense, I'll note that I was raised on California pizza which is very different. And perhaps, my expectations were too high since I had heard how great N.Y. pizza was. But, on reflection...it was really bad.

What's wrong with pizza in england. I was in London last summer and went to some pizza restaurant close to Westminister and it was a small restaurant which was packed with people. I am assuming redkitty is referring to chain pizza places which I did not see many while I was there.

The pizza were brick oven and delish. They were small not like the huge ones in the states and the ingredients were fresh and the flavor was amazing.

I don't like Little Ceasers. It's a joke and not a pizza. I like Pizza Hut but only their thin crust pizza and especially their Buffalo chicken pizza when they offer it. I am not a huge fan of pan or pie pizzas. I can never even finish even one slice.

The pizza's I do like (These are in Chicago) are:

California Pizza Kitchen - Chain all accross America and I enjoy their thai chicken pizza and some others like carne asada and shrimp pizza
Lou Malinattis - Their crust is made out of butter and is really good
Edwardos - This is the only pan I like especially the one made out of spinach
Jersey's Pizza (A new restaurant that opened near my place)
Gioridanos, Ginos East and Unos are alright more hyped but I like Edwardos better

Come to Kazakhstan--then you'll have an inkling.......their idea of a good pizza is a mamby pamby crust with half-hearted toppings and the cheese is so greasy,,,,,,,it hurts........but it's the best that they have to offer.....so far no foreign pizza places or MacDonalds or american fast food places have had the nerve or tenge (local currency) to enter.......maybe a good idea or not who knows.......... but I've learned to make a good pizza via the kitchen oven......and friends like them......the best pizza that we ever had was in Rome, Italy, at a little hole in the wall place.....Da Baffetto's, and at 6:30pm there was a long line and they opened at 7pm......the chef would NOT let me take his photo but I did get a shot of all the wood piled under the brick oven
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Worst pizza crust is that thin stuff that taste like triscuit crackers. I hate those cheap frozen pizzas with the artificial meat/soy or flour or something??? Stale moz cheese that really doesn't melt. Finding soggy pepperoni under the sauce and cheese...Yuk! Pizza cut into little squares. Personal Pan Pizza that is served in the little black greasy skillet.

Pizza coupons 2 for 1 and only one topping. Ordering two med pizza for $20 and adding a $1.98 order of breadsticks and getting charged $32.

Finding hog roasted meat on the pizza instead of ham. Canadian Bacon is not the same as bologna. Summer sausage is not pepperoni. Bread crumbs is not the same as extra cheese topping. Manwich is not pizza sauce. Pizza dough is not made from biscuit mix.

Honestly, I think that is the only bad pie I have ever had.
