Pizza Hut, thin n' crispy crust, super supreme w/out pepperoni. I don't eat a lot of frozen pizza, but when I do, it's Mama Rosa's.

I love pizza, my favorite from a chain is Papa Johns. There is a family restaurant in my town called Ray J's that has really good pizza as well. For frozen I always go with Jack's, when I splurge its Jacks Naturally Rising.

Love pizza but not frozen kind. I like making my own and putting healthy flavorful items on it.

I can't remember who it is that makes the BBQ chicken / bacon pizza -?- It's some chain, and the crust is usually nice and thin and crispy. Somebody like 5-Star perhaps. Or Ci Ci's.

For frozen, I like the Pepperidge Farms™ french bread pizza.

Unfortunately, this is all from more or less distant memory, since any such things are totally off plan for low-carbers like ourselves!

I like Pizza Hut pizza, but can't remember the last time I ate it.
As for frozen, lately I have been buying Udi's pizza. It is gluten free. So good!

I don't eat chain pizza, gross!

I don't eat frozen pizza gross!

I go down the road 15 minutes from my house to a place that has a great antipasto salad and I eat a vegetarian pizza, so good. Its the only time I eat pizza since there is so many calories going on, may as well make it worth my while when I do eat it~

It's a toss up between Dominon's and Little Caesar. Pepperoni and mushroom without the cheese.

When I am home in Chicago, there are a million Mom and Pop places that I like. I don't love deep dish, and only have it when there is a visitor who wants to try it. I like sausage and mushroom usually, although at some of the wood-burning oven places, I like to get the more Italian ones, like potato and rosemary. My all time favorite pizza is the white pizza with clams from Pepe in New Haven, CT, but I have not been there in ages.

I never get frozen. If I want pizza at home, I make it from scratch with exactly what I want on it. In case of a pizza emergency, I make pita pizza which is actually pretty good.

i like Papa Murphy's delite take and bake pizza. Like the light crust much better than the regular crust. Probably eat it at least one or twice a month.

4/27/14 10:22 P

I will pick up a frozen pizza. They are smaller and cheaper than any chain. We almost always get Trader Joe's Maitre Pierre Tarte D’Alace.

It's my quick night dinner - we get that and the new shredded brussels sprout and kale salad mix and the spicy Asian dressing. Great dinner for 4 under $10!

Hmm. I've eaten restaurant pizza twice in 16 months.... once from a local "2 for 1" takeout (was blarghh) and once at Boston Pizza - not bad!

Frozen - I just won't eat it. I do not like frozen pizza.

Pizza, oh, I do love pizza! I have simply learned to make my own. When I need a pizza fix, I either buy a pre-made crust at the italian deli (they make a good one) or my spouse makes the dough up from scratch (he has a system - and it always turns out really good!). I tend to top it with creative gourmet toppings like "caramalized onions and fennel with gorgonzola cheese" or "sauteed spinach, artichoke hearts and feta cheese" or "seared mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and basil with mozzarella" - With good flavourful ingredients you don't need much cheese... especially when using a strongly flavoured cheese. So these pizza meals are actually "on target" nutrition-wise!

I've always been a fan of Dominos. I do like non-pepperoni pizzas (generally vegetarian). Pepperoni seems to affect the cheese somehow — it's much nicer without it. My favourite frozen is Delissio (or other rising crusts), but avoid the dipping crust version. :( The crust is not the fluffy pizza crust I like. And definitely make your own if you can. Best part about pizza is that you can put anything on it!

I just want to jump in and say that pizza dough is surprisingly easy to make and when you make your own you control the ingredients and can get really creative!

I like Dr. Oetkers frozen pizza.

Pizza hut is ok, but not that great. My city isn't blessed with any great mom and pop shops.

I haven't eaten at a chain pizza place in years. I too favor a couple of local mom and pop pizza joints that serve fantastic food. One place I go makes a fabulous pizza topped with eggplant parm. yum.

However, if I do end up at a chain, I usually end up at a Bertuccis. I love their rolls !

For frozen, the only frozen pizza I like are the Stouffer's French Bread (toaster oven) Pizzas. I haven't had one of those in years because I make my own version at home.

I rarely eat pizza these days...but I've always favored a very thin crust, three cheese, and added black olives, and some type of greens ( basil, arugula, baby spinach).

hmmm. Used to like Pizza Hut years ago. Then I started eating healthier and switched to a little local place, where the pizza wasn't so greasy. Then I started making my own. And now I prefer homemade. Never cared for frozen pizza, although I read an article recently that said Freshetta (spelling?) is good.

We love a pizza chain called Brixx. They have delicious, interesting pizzas, salads, and appetizers and are very vegan friendly. It feels like I've made an actual healthy choice whenever I go there.

1. What is your favorite chain pizza? And what do you order from them?
2. What frozen pizza do you find most tolerable?
