I think many large chains like Domino's use it too. No wonder why St. Louis people think that cheese is so great.

DO people not just go to Pizza hut or dominos? IF so, wouldn't they be the same?

People in most of the middle and large cities east of the Mississippi River or north of the Ohio River have no need for those large generic chains. Mom and pop shops and many small chains have much better pizza.

If you are in a town of 10,000 or lower, in a rural area, odds are all you will have is Pizza Hut,Domino's, or some other large corporate chain like Papa John's.

Even the worst pizza shops in any of the cities mentioned in this poll are better than these large national chains.

I must say that Pizza Hut is better than Domino's. It costs more though. The main reason people get either of these are cost and quickness. But of course, you get what you pay for.

Can you say "Game, set, match"?
So New Haven likes to burn their pizzas?

When I lived in NYC, my friends and I were amazed to see a Domino's Pizza shop open up. Who in their right minds would order a mass produced, inferior pizza made by Pakistanis when you can't throw a stone without hitting a real, traditional pizzeria with authentic pizza being made by Italian(-American) families in our neighborhood?

Well, one of my friends got a job there as a delivery boy and all of his customers were immigrants who didn't know good pizza from the hole in their arses.

Chicagos thin crust is amazing. For example where i live there is over 10 pizza places within 10 miles that i would gladly go to any of them.

Comparing NY Pizza to Chicago deep dish is like comparing lasagna to spaghetti carbonara. They have much the same ingredients but they are two different dishes.

Now Chicago 'cracker' crust v. NY pizza is somewhere an argument can be made.
