Unfortunately, we never tried one of these HUGE things, when we were in China (TPR 2012 Tour),
where we saw it offered. So I really can't tell you if the peppers were hot or not. My loss, I guess. :smile:

Every major pizza chain sucks. The one exception might be Uno but I don't really think of that as pizza. I know I'm a N.Y. guy but I don't mean that as an insult. Deep dish is delicious but comparing that to N.Y. style pizza is like comparing apples to oranges. They're very different things (but they're both awesome).

Since we're in the N.Y area we can call up basically any place around that's not a chain and get great pizza (something we're really spoiled by), but I won't bore anyone with hole-in-the-wall pizza places nobody has ever heard of. I'm a pizza snob and rarely bother with pizza outside of the N.Y area because living in North Carolina for a few months taught me better. Despite that though there are always some exceptions and 2 of my top 3 fall into that category. So not that anyone cares but my top 3 would be:

3) Cesari's Pizza: Knoebels
Unless you're in a major city, trying to get a good slice of pizza in Pennsylvania is damn near impossible. That being said Knoebels defies logic and this stuff is wonderful. And nothing washes down a delicious slice of Cesari's better than a tall glass of Knoebels Kool Aid which I routinely sip every single day.

2) Lombari's Pizza: NYC
If someone were to ask me what the best slice of pizza was, I'd tell them it was Lombardi's. #1 is kind of a nostalgia thing for me but Lombardi's is world class. Everyone needs to check this place out. It's a staple of Scott's Pizza Tour and it should be.

1) I'm sorry guys but... Grotto Pizza: Delaware
Let me start this off by saying that there are Grotto Pizza locations in Pennsylvania. They all suck, but the ones in Delaware are incredible. I grew up eating this stuff on family vacations and I absolutely adore it. Nothing annoys me more then Pizza places trying to copy N.Y. pizza because they usually fail (cough... Nicola). Grotto doesn't try to copy anything, they did something completely different and it's great. Your mileage may vary though, it's definitely a little different.

lol and I just realized how arrogant that sounded. Sorry, living here just spoils you in the Pizza department. The weather sucks, the taxes suck but we have some damn good pizza and we're proud of that lol.

^I love pizza and have been dying to try some legit NY-Style pizza. I'll be going to the area in April and I'll definitely have to try some of those! I plan to order pizza as much as I can in the three weeks I'm up there.

As far as chains go, Shakespeare's is the best I've had, followed closely by Arris. I've always been partial to Imo's, as a local chain here (based in St. Louis). That said, nothing beats a pizza you make yourself, in your own kitchen.

I finally remembered the US chain we always went to,
south of the border, in Bellingham WA...

We enjoyed the menu variety, the service, and the pizzas were great!

Anthony's Coal Fired is my favorite, it's a little chain a few miles from my house. The slices are huge, the pizza is AMAZING, and even though it looks charred, it doesn't taste burnt. The best pizza out there, by far, even though it's a little pricey.

Shakey's was the first pizza I ever ate back when I was a wee lad.

Been a while, but my vote goes to ...

PIZZA HUT, ONLY because of how it works in
it's overseas Asian chains. Which are basically RESTAURANTS, with seating
and menus, and awesome food things to choose from. Their menus are to die for.

And we did, from week to week, LOL. Back in the TPR 2012 China Tour.

My favorites are Chicago Uno's and Ledo pizza (mostly a Maryland chain). I used work for both Papa John's and Domino's for a while, occasionally I still order PJ's but after two years at Domino's, I learned to never eat their food ever again.
