    It didn't happen to be Pizza Hut in Greenfield did it? It was years ago now, but my wife and I made that exact comment about that Pizza Hut, that somehow it tasted different than any other we had been to.

    The old quote holds true:

    Pizza is like sex. When it's good it's good, and even when it's bad it's still pretty good.
    I disagree can't stand pizza anymore now that I changed my eating habits. It actually gives me a headache.

    Garcia's in Bloomington! Oh wait, I guess they closed twenty years ago.

    I've fallen in love with Marco's. With all 3 crust toppers. It's so good that I've gotten back in the habit of eating pizza. My Marco's is in Tennessee.

    I used to drive quite a distance to visit Uno's. Loved it. But they closed here. Now I'd have to leave the state to get some. I actually checked their web page last week to see where the closest one is nowadays. Not close at all.

    If you ever get by Wanamaker, the New Bethel Ordinary is definitely worth a visit. The first time I
    ever ordered a pizza there, they handed me the box and I thought "wow this thing weighs a ton".
    Took it home and weighed it, and it weighed almost 7 lbs.! Absolutely stacked and very gooey.
    Parents live near Wannamaker, and yes that pizza will challenge you. Its a monster.

    Jets pizza is pretty tasty. I like the really thick with the crunchy caramelized crust. There is one in Westfield/Carmel, but I'm not sure what other locations they have.

    Edit: Just looked it up. There are also locations in Greenwood and Fishers. One in Indy with two more coming soon.(Shadeland Ave, Thompson Rd.)

    I like it a lot as well. I know Uncle Buck said it is inedible, but I couldn't disagree more. Maybe he got a bad one or a bad location.

    Bob's tu your door, a little pricey but with a unique taste, and quite a delicious one as well. There was some hole in the wall store down near Remington that had absolutely delicious barbeque chicken pizza.

    Funny, in the town I grew up in it was basically universally understood that Papa John's was better than Domino's. But I've later learned that that often depends on the town, which is funny since these national chains are all supposed to be the same. In DC, Domino's is generally a hell of a lot better. I've ordered Papa John's once here and it was awful.

    If you're ever in Philly you gotta go to Pizza Brain. Not only do they have absolutely amazing, unique pizza, but they also have a small pizza museum with all kinds of pizza memorabilia. Now, the place is owned and operated by hipsters which probably would annoy some people, but the place is still great. I spent a couple hours in there trying out their amazing pizza and watching American Gladiators re-runs.

    DC is a pizza desert, the pizza here mostly sucks. When I was in college everyone ordered from this place called Manny and Olga's because it was cheap, but it was bad. The only real good pizza place that I know of here is Pete's, which is good New Haven-style thin crust.

    I use to prefer Papa John's, but I've grown fond of Domino's since they started adding a ton of garlic to their crust. That's really the only two pizza chains I eat at, as I'm not a pizza snob, and I'm a bit of a health nut.

    Holy shitsnacks, Manny and Olga's was dreadful.

    Armand's was relatively good.

    I'm not sure if Ledo Pizza and Ledo's Restaurant are linked but I tried the Restaurant's pizza (in College Park) and it was decent -- oddly good buttery crust but oddly sorta off-putting sweet sauce.

    But yeah, basically in DC you have to opt for the brick oven/wood fired variety (Matchbox, Ella's, 2 Amy's).

    I only had had it once and thought it was awful, maybe I should try again. But I am very picky when it comes to pizza.

    We get the Dominos veggie pizza on a thin crust and add pepperoni and beef and it is very good. Little Ceasers is he go to for cheap, greasy, pick it up quick pie. Pizza King and Maurizios Pizza in Terre Haute are the favorites, but they are unavailable down here. We have found a couple local places that make very good pies.

    Has anyone had Toppers pizza? It's a little expensive but I personally put it above the majority of other chains in the area. They've got a really good buffalo chicken pizza.

    I forgot about Matchbox! It's good but impossible to get a table there on the weekend. Really good pizza though.

    From the big chains I prefer Donotos. The best pizza I've had in a while was from Pizzology.

    I was in love with Maurizio's Pizza when I lived in the Haute. Sicilian style pizza, very unique and good sauce.

    A funny story, my brother's phone number was one off of Maurizio's so he got people calling him all the time thinking it was the pizza place. At first he would correct them but after about a year he just gave in and started taking their orders. Those people were pissed when their pizzas didn't show up.

    I like it when I'm home visiting as a change of pace. Wife hates the sauce. Thinks it is way too sweet.

    Let me agree with you guys on Pizza Hut... BLAH!
    I used to like Pizza Hut.

    CLEARLY they have changed either their recipe or prep methods...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I have really start to like Domino's after they change their recipe, but they got rid of the jalapeno cheese for their breadsticks and I was disappointed.

    I really like Noble Romans Sicilian pizza. Get a side of breadsticks with their cheese as well and I am in love.

    Union Jacks is my favorite place for deep dish though. I am a deep dish guy though. Not a fan of the New York style.

    Worst = Little Caesars "Hot-n-Ready"

    I can't pick a major chain best, but I was surprised at how much I liked Papa Murphy's. CPK at Circle Center is really good.

    Local= Jockamo's is always good. And I likey the Pizzaology.
