Another good one if you like a bunch of toppings and crack thin crust is Old World Pizza in inver grove heights. The pile the toppings on have thin crust. I love their meat lovers pizza, especially the bacon bits they put on the top! Can't go wrong with bacon!!

Upper Crust in Allegan is my favorite. Great buffet too But if I get here twice a year I'm pretty happy.

Grand Rapids has a near little spot near Wealthy/Fuller called Red Brick Road Pizza thats not bad. Interesting place and pretty good if your preference is veggies.

Locally here in Lansing "Arts" has the best (great little sports bar of sorts here in Lansing). Just dont order extra cheese. Oh and while your waiting bring your man card and order a Schooner. Some may debate DeLuca's.

In my area I work (SE Michigan) I've become rather fond of Tiffany's lunch buffet in Dundee (I've seen hotdogs on pizza, as well as their Jalapeno popper pizza is rather interesting).

Since most Pizza Huts no longer have a buffet and Cici's are closing down left and right (for the price I liked theirs and the variety), Old Chicago now gets my regular business. Variety isnt as great as I'd like but its mostly deeper crust (not a fan of thin crust) and pretty consistent on the pizza quality.

If your north bound on 75 south of Flint get off on the Grange Hall Road Exit (exit 101). Gas station on SW Side (Alex's Market and Grill?) of highway. 13+ Years of assorted traveling throughout the state and this is bar none the best off highway place I've found. If you havent stopped here for pizza oven goodies well I'm sorry. Killer beverage selection and what we refer to as the "Pizza Bomb." Pretty much about 1/2 a pizza rolled into stromboli of sorts.....oh me oh my my mouth is watering....nap time will soon cometh

They actually just put in a Marco's down the street from me. I've been impressed each time I order from them.
If you're willing to pay a premium over the chains, you can't go wrong with Wick's or Impellizeri's in or around Louisville.
If you really want something crazy, check out Jailhouse Pizza in Brandenburg, KY.

Round Table should be on the list.

Little Ceasers is best for the price.

Haven't had Dominos in about 20 years.

I cant wait to get back to the states to try some of these places. They all sound pretty good. I'm in the Midwest so if anyone knows of some nice mom and pop places let me know. Seems that is the clear winner. More local places rather than well known.

People aren't getting the poll, it's CHAIN pizza places. To me that means national chains like the list.

I think its a given that people will overwhelmingly prefer small mom and pop pizza places due to better ingredients and care taken while cooking.

My fave national chain from the list is Papa Johns, primarily for their sausage and the garlic sauce.

Big Momma's and Papa's here in LA was always my go-to place for pizza (don't eat it anymore)...loved their huge pizzas. They recently got a huge promotion thanks to the Oscars this year.

True story: I did a search in Google of "Pepperoni porn pizza" at work, and it came back blocked.

Go figure.

I used to love Upper Crust, but they closed the one in Kalamazoo at least 15 years ago. Another good one in Kalamazoo is Bilbo's.

As far as chains, I voted for Papa Johns. But Id rather have a local pizza from Pizza Oven or Gionino's.

None of the above.
However I do miss the days of Pizza Hut when they were an actual restaurant... Served beer and always had a sit down Ms. Pac-man/Galaga game.

Jets just came into the Cincy market on the east side. I've been wanting to try it. What do the Jets fans suggest?

If I had to choose one of these, I like Domino's. I'll always get something local instead though.

Local places are a whole other discussion in my opinion.

In terms of chain pizzas - I grew up on Little Caesars, and Domino's has improved. Haven't really eaten much at the other places listed so I couldn't say.
