The stuff my wife makes. Bacon, sausage, pepperoni, ground beef,
onions, dice portabella mushrooms, and hot pickled pepperoncini. Top it
all off with a mix of provolone, mozzarella, and parmigiano reggiano.
Thin crust, of course, cooked on a stone, not a metal pan.

Unos, no doubt. The rest seem to be variations of the Dominos Salt Lick
or the Pizza Hut Salt Lick. I've neve had Papa Johns, so I can't really
comment on them.

The only regional chain around here that I'm aware of East of Chicago.
They suck - they're another variation of the Dominos Salt Lick. The do
have a decent cold mexican pizza though, if you can stand the bready
There's a decent pizza parlor here in town, Elms pizza that's quite
good. All they have is good thin crust, we prefer it over all others
local here - though we do have to supplement it with fresh ground pepper
(the locals around here seem afraid of seasoning for some reason). In
Warwick, RI there's a place called Lakis Pizza that does an incredibly
greasy thin crust with all the right flavors - man it's good. Then in
Livermore, CA there's a place called Mama Mia's taht makes the most
incredible pizza I've ever had - pastry crust top and bottom stuffed
absolutely full of meat of all kinds. They also have one with
vegetables in it, so I hear (never bothered to order it). Yes, it's a
heart attack on a plate, but it's soooo worth it.
