To be fair, freshness plays a huge role in most of the chains. I have had terrible Dominos, Pizza Hut, Little Caesar's and Papa John's pizzas, but I have also had really good pizza from them all. So it would be difficult for me to say which one I think is the best.
Same could be said for fast food. I have really good Whoppers, Quarter Pounders, Bacon Cheeseburgers from the big three chains and then downright atrocious burgers & fries from all.
That's why I rarely frequent chain restaurants as most seem to have that Jekyll & Hyde syndrome going on where you never know what you're going to get when you order. Locally family owned business know more is at stake, so they tend to cook with a little more passion and strive for better quality than most chains do.
When we order or go out for pizza, we have two family-owned businesses (Pace's & Pizza Express) that we frequent that blows all of the chain pizzas out of the water. Sure, you will pay more for them, but the quality is tons better and there are usually way more toppings on the pies.
I have a special relationship with Round Table. There's one really close by and when I don't want to cook, they're a pretty tasty and quick solution. One time, I said something about my cats in the order comments just to be weird, and they thought it was hilarious and put me down in the computer as the "cat house." So ever since then, they've drawn cats on our boxes when we order pizza.
My family has a long history with Papa Murphy's too and I still enjoy their pizza, but I've gotten kinda sick of it after having the same pizza every week for about 10 years.
Of course, the best pizza I've ever had was in Chicago and New Jersey. I'm looking forward to getting some legit New York style pizza from the area in April. Of course local places are better than chains. But for not-too-expensive nearby pick-up on a Friday night, I'd much rather have Round Table than Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Little Caesars, etc.
