(My personal) Best chain pizza rankings
- mucho gordo Dec 7, 2013 11:30 AM
#1: Numero Uno (not enough locations)
Round Table " " "
#2 Pizza Hut
Domino (Best sauce)
#3 Costco (too dry and bland)
#4 Little Caesar (terrible)
Still much prefer real Italian non-chain pizza.

I have to say I'm shocked by all the Papa Murphy's love here. Not to just drop into the topic to be negative, but we found it inedible - I'd rather have a frozen Red Baron. We had three open in our town a couple years ago and none lasted more than a year. Does it vary from location to location?
They ARE a franchise so results can vary. We used to live in smallish town that had two. One was really not good, to the point that the last time we got one the tomato sauce soaked all the way through the crust. So we drove a couple more miles to the one that continues, years later, to turn out good ones. But that was the only place that was subpar.

I've had good results with one specific pie I've ordered. I took another to my parents. They said it was so-so. Do not know if they followed cooking directions but they seem to be reasonable people.
For me, I live 30 miles from where I work out in the country. Picking one up isn't a horribly bad deal. I also have a mom and pop store in the city that will par bake a pie for me knowing I don't get off until 11 after their kitchen is closed. That's very nice as well, but about 2-3 times the price.
I do like Papa Murphy's especially the meat stuffed pizza.
After that in declining order of yum.
Pizza Hut (only if it has beef bbq pizza - thin crust)
Domino's (the new artisinal pan pizza or stuffed cheesy bread - and the delivery guys draw pictures in the boxes)
Pizza Inn (bacon bit pizza)
then the non edibles - Little Ceasar's (fake cheese, fake everything dough balls) Papa John's (horrid sauce)
Of course I prefer the non-chain local joints, but this was a topic on chains.
