Anyone who gets their pizza at a national chain is pitiful.

Wow, somebody has an ego problem! I suppose you would turn down a good looking partner with a great personality just because she eats from a national chain

Why do you say beeneverywheretwice has an ego problem? There's not a franchise pizza place in the country that measures up to a good old fashioned neighborhood pizza parlor. If you live in the middle of nowhere, and there aren't choices within a hundred miles, then you have to deal with them. But anyone who goes to a franchise place in a big city, where you can get real pizza...that's pathetic.

And what if the national chain's pizza is good enough for you? This is like middle school. If you like something the rest of the crowd doesn't like, you're pathetic. I think that all people should do here is voice their opinions and not put down others who might have differing opinions about what type of pizza they prefer. Personally, I would rather spend money on national pizza then spend a friggin' fortune in some fancy Italian restaurant or pizza parlor. I am partial to both chain pizzas and real restaurant pizzas, so I guess if anybody wants to put down my taste buds, it's their problem, not mine, so I'm not going to engage in this anymore

If you must know, I once broke-up with a girl because she didn't like pizza. I mean, what kind of a person doesn't like pizza? Obviously, she was some kind a of lunatic. LOL!

Are you under the impression that the typical "Anthony's Pizziera" in any given town is getting their ingredients from someplace other than a national distributor? Or that their fresh locally grown green peppers and onions are any fresher or more locally grown than what the chains use?

Quit romanticizing this. Almost all combinations of dough, tomato sauce and cheese taste pretty good. If anything, the local places will tend over or under-cook their products due to just using the eyeball method of checking when it's done. At least the chains using convection/conveyor ovens never, ever get the time wrong.

None of them. Greasy nasty. There's a local pizza place here, Panny's Pizza, best on the planet.

Here in Aus we only have Dominoes and Pizza Hut, but I usually get my pizzas from a local chain called La Porchetta. There is also a local woodfired pizza place which is beautiful, but a bit pricey. Also my grandma recently learnt how to make amazing pizzas. I'm spoilt for choice!
