Domino’s Pepperoni and Pineapple

For most of my life, I’ve been a no-pineapple pizza eater. I’m willing to experiment a bit with toppings, but pineapple had always seemed wrong since I first tried it on a Hawaiian pizza from Little Caesar’s many years ago.

But then I tried a Domino’s Pan Crust pizza with pepperoni and pineapple. It’s so good. This is the pizza that got me to love pineapple.

Domino’s is pretty consistently good these days, and this pizza tonight is no exception. Both the pan crust and the hand-tossed pizzas are great. I’ve been typically getting one pan crust and one hand-tossed with their $5.99 deal for two or more medium pizzas, mixing up the toppings on the hand-tossed but keeping pepperoni and pineapple on the pan crust.

This time I got the same toppings on both crusts, and they’re both great. I do think the pineapple’s sweetness works really well with the thicker pan crust, but it’s really good on the hand-tossed as well. I highly recommend you try this pizza!

Strap Tank Brewery – Pepperoni

Strap Tank is a local restaurant and brewery in Utah that has a decent selection of good food. This is a pizza blog though, so we got the pizza!

This $13 pizza is fairly large, with a good thin crust. It’s fairly average in flavor, topping amount, and general quality, with nothing in particular standing out. It somewhat reminds me of the Chuck E. Cheese’s pizza I had a few years ago, but a bit thinner and much bigger/greasier. Overall not at all a bad value, but nothing really notable.

I also got their locally-crafted root beer to go with it, and it’s really good! It’s not quite as good as the Blue Sky root beer I often get at MOD Pizza, but it’s still great. I don’t know that I’ll order this pizza again, though I may try their Supreme at some point for something with a bit more flavor, and I’ll likely try some of their non-pizza foods too.

Tenney’s Pizza

I’ve become a little obsessed with Tenney’s lately. They’re just so incredibly cheap, and they deliver, unlike Little Caesar’s. Their pan crust is pretty good, and their cheese sticks are great.

This time I was a bit adventurous. I’m not super picky with my toppings, but I generally avoid things like pineapple and jalapeƱos. This time I got both! It’s actually a really good mix. I don’t love the texture of pineapple on a pizza, but it’s not bad with this one.

And of course I got cheese sticks. Two orders of them, since you can get a second for only $3. They were particularly cheesy this time!

If you’re in the mood for some good, cheap pizza, you really can’t go wrong with Tenney’s. As long as you get the pan crust. It’s only an extra dollar (at least on the medium).

Tenney’s Pan Crust

I keep going back to Tenney’s because I love their cheese sticks, then end up disappointed by their pizzas. This time I gave in and spent the extra dollar on the pan crust. It’s not bad! Their pan crust is about as thick as most places’ hand tossed crusts, but it helps the balance with the ingredients a lot.

I got this one with pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, yellow onions, tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and red hot peppers. It’s not a bad combination, but probably not my favorite. Their 12 toppings at no extra cost is still a great deal, even with the quality of the toppings being a bit less than your typical pizza place.

And of course I had to go with the extra order of cheese sticks for only $3.

They’re so good.

Marco’s Pizza

This one’s interesting. The pizza’s not bad, but nothing special. I got the All Meat pizza that includes pepperoni, ham, Italian sausage, and bacon. The toppings are good quality, but the crust leaves a lot to be desired. I feel like a slightly different crust would make this an incredible pizza, but the current one holds it back quite a bit.

Their “cheesybread” though. That stuff’s really good. Kind of like my experience with Two Jack’s recently, I’d get Marco’s again for the cheese bread, not the pizza. Two Jack’s cheese sticks are still by far the best I’ve had, but these are still excellent.

Tenney’s Pizza

I’ve known about Tenney’s Pizza for a while, with a few different people recommending I try it over the last couple years. Today I finally gave in. I was intending to go buy groceries and make a more practical dinner, but the idea of trying a new pizza place sounded too good.

Tenney’s pricing is awesome. Their large (14″) pizza includes up to 12 toppings at no extra charge for only $9. I decided to go with pepperoni, sausage, ham, green peppers, parmesan cheese, and yellow onions. I also got some of the cheese sticks to make sure my order was over the $10 minimum for delivery.

You get what you pay for with pizza like this. It’s not a bad pizza by any means, but it’s certainly not up to the level of quality you’d expect buying from Pizza Hut or Domino’s. Overall though, I’m very satisfied. The pizza arrived only 15 minutes after I placed my order, and the pizza and cheese sticks are both pretty good.

Extra Most Bestest Stuffed Crust – Little Caesar’s

There was a time not that long ago, before Hot-N-Ready, when it seemed Little Caesar’s was destined to fail. After Hot-N-Ready, they just didn’t stop. Some of the time this went really poorly, like with their Pretzel Crust, but other times it was incredible, like the Bacon Wrapped Deep Dish (which was probably the best pizza I’ve ever had). This one though… it’s just about perfect. The Extra Most Bestest is already such a great pizza for such a great price that it’s hard to improve on, but adding a bit more cheese in the crust makes all the difference. The price goes up from $6 to $9, but that’s still a great price compared to the competing stuffed crust pizzas.

Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust Pepperoni and Sausage

The last time I tried to buy a stuffed crust pizza, the Pizza Hut location I was at didn’t offer stuffed crust. I was so disappointed I ended up getting Domino’s instead. I’ve had a lot of pizzas since then, but I’ve really wanted more stuffed crust, so here we are.

This one’s all right. It was made a bit thinner than usual. Pizza Hut does this somewhat frequently, I assume it stems from stretching the crust to double it up on the edges but not having enough dough to begin with. The pepperoni and sausage are a decent combination, though I think I actually prefer plain pepperoni.

Little Caesar’s – Extra Most Bestest

Little Caesar’s makes excellent pizza for the price and speed that you can get it. The quality is fairly inconsistent, but it’s hard to complain about a $5 pizza you can get in under a minute. The Extra Most Bestest pizza improves on their regular Hot ‘N’ Ready, adding more cheese and pepperoni, for another dollar. At only $6, it’s a really good pizza. This one was a bit undercooked and had too much sauce for my taste, but was still enjoyable. Sometimes you just need a cheap pizza with a lot of cheese, and this is the best one around.

Pizza Hut – Supreme Stuffed Crust

Pizza Hut’s stuffed crust pizzas are amazing. I typically stick with just pepperoni, sometimes adding sausage or something like that, but I usually don’t add many toppings. This time though, Pizza Hut was running a 50% off any menu-priced pizza promotion, so I had to get something a bit more exciting. This is an excellent pizza. As usual, I went with the Hut Favorite seasoning, and the combination of toppings complemented the cheese in the crust really nicely.

Seriously just go eat some Pizza Hut. It’s good stuff.
