I've tried Nancy's thin crust. Decent, but not worth the price, IMO.

I'll say this much for Arni's -- they don't skimp on the toppings. I don't mind the ground meat too much, but it's not my favorite pizza by far.

I grew accustomed to eating Arni's pizza because it was one of the few pizza places in town at the time. Arni held a pizza eating contest at Market Square in Lafayette once a year but I never participated in that. Don't think I could have eaten 20+ pizzas to win 1st place. What some people will do just to win a pizza-eating contest.

It's been real sausage every time we've gotten thin or deep dish ...

Their beef sandwiches are decent too.

I am waiting for Nancy's to have the all-you-can-eat pizza contest.

Pizza Hut is hit or miss, a lot depends on the specific restaurant. Two well established Pizza Huts on the east side of Indy (both of very busy Washington St.) closed a couple or so years back. With all the new pizza places opening up, these two Pizza Huts were just average. However, the Pizza Hut in Noblesville is very good, and at least cooks the pizza to where the cheese is melted properly (a big issue with Pizza Hut). Domino's used to be cheap filler pizza, but after their new recipe, it is actually very good. Little Caesars hot and ready is now the new Domino's. Even Chuck E Cheese changed their pizza. Chuck E Cheese and Dominos both tied for worst chain pizza a couple of years ago. It is nice to see two companies taking steps to improve their product, and that Dominos is still offering very good deals.

We still like to make our own pizza. A Boboli crust, Pastorelli pizza sauce, and any Mozzarella and Provolone cheese blend is great.

Nancy's Pizza
I'll second this. There's a Nancy's near me and IMO it's the best stuffed pizza in the city.

I discovered the trick to appreciating St. Louis-style pizza is a liberal application of crushed red pepper. Without it though... you're right, it's weird stuff.

Great...I'm hungry now!
They've started opening up Jets Pizza places around here. Actually not too bad for a fairly large regional chain. But I'm not a big fan of the big spongy crust, having grown up on the crisp cracker-thin crust of the Chicago-style thin crust variety.

Edwardo's is my favorite of the deep-dish/stuffed regional chains behind Nancy's. Unfortunately, Edwardo's appears to be dying out. There's only 9 left. They just closed another one in the South Loop. The location still delivers, but the dining room is closed.

There is a Chicago's Pizza chain in Chicago, but they are not affiliated with the chain in Indiana. No big loss there -- Chicago's is pretty "meh."

Uhm, pretty much all the well-known deep-dish/stuffed chains have locations scattered all over the entire metro area. What's more, most mom-and-pop pizza joints around here offer Chicago-style deep-dish or stuffed. Some do both even though the difference is probably lost on many.
