This was probably the best pie I ever had from a national chain. It is 10.99 plus tax in our area for a 12" one-topping pizza, so it is somewhat expensive but worth it. We opted for just cheese as I have worked for independent pizzerias as well as a couple of chains in Buffalo when I lived there and plain cheese is the way to get the real flavor of pizza. The cheese was bubbly golden brown, the sauce was made from sauce with organic tomatoes and the multi grain crust was delicous. The natural toppings available were tomatoes, red peppers, and artichokes iirc. However, if they use fresh shrooms on their pizza, that would be natural too, but you can get any topping.

I'll have to look for that one , like the idea of organic tomato sauce and multi grain crust, even if I prefer whole grain, at least multi grain is better for you than white flour and it will fill you up longer, due to the fiber.

The cheese is all natural too, no fillers.

It's such a relief to know they were feeding us unnatural cheese before...

I used to work for Bellacino's in Charlotte. They are based in Detroit. I actually think their pizza is not very good.

They sure were:

modified food strach as well as sodium propionate (added as a preservative).

Two ingredients which are far from natural.

I feel bad for anyone who lives somewhere where chain pizza is their best option. Lots of Italians where I live, so that translates to lots of locally-owned Italian restaurants and pizza places. Pizza Hut, Domino's, Papa John's....yuck.

We are also lucky to be the home of "Old Forge style" pizza, a square pizza with a blend of cheeses rather than mozarella.

I grew up in Detroit and also lived in Buffalo, both places with a lot of good mom and pop pizzerias (I worked at a couple and also worked for Domino's). I really like the Buffalo area pizza, not too thin like NYC and not too thick like Chicago. Now I am in Charlotte and with so many NY and Buffalo transplants, there are NY Style pizza places everywhere. Some are really good, some aren't, but it they are better than the chains. The 14" in "large" pie at the chains is a choke. One of the best Ny pizzerias here (owned and run by Italians) pizzas are 16", 18" and 20".
