I can relate. Consider asking your local spots for just the dough/crust, then add your own sauce and toppings.
In town, I like everything about our pizza place, except for their red sauce (which seems to be a low quality tomato paste thinned out with water… yuk).
Red Barron is good, so is Tombstone (same company), but many supermarkets have refrigerated pizzas for not much more, and are way better.
But my best recommendation is just to get the dough/crust and make your own sauce and toppings.
