Little Caesar’s Slices-N-Stix

I’ve always really liked the Italian Cheese Bread from Little Caesar’s, but unless you’re feeding a few people it can be a lot of food to get an ICB, a pizza, and (as you always must) Crazy Bread. The Slices-N-Stix is a great alternative option! This is a neat pizza that is half pepperoni pizza, half Italian Cheese Bread. It’s a thinner crust than the original ICB, but it’s still really good.

I definitely recommend it if you like the ICB but also want some good old pizza. And if you haven’t tried the Italian Cheese Bread before, you should! It’s a bit overpriced but great.

Village Baker – Pizza Italiano

My employer has catered lunches once a week. This week it was pizza from Village Baker.

This pizza is pretty good! I don’t usually go for a white sauce, but it works well on this one. Good selection of toppings, and a great overall flavor. I’d definitely recommend it, and I look forward to trying their other specialty pizzas!

Papa John's Stuffed Crust Pepperoni

Papa John’s Stuffed Crust Pepperoni

I quite like Papa John’s in general, but I’ve never been a fan of their crust. With Pizza Hut, I pretty much exclusively eat their stuffed crust, it’s really their only pizza that’s worth buying to me, so having a new stuffed crust option is always awesome!

This is a good pizza. It’s a bit simpler than the Pizza Hut stuffed crust, missing their crust flavoring and such, but it’s really good. This one in particular has a lot of cheese on it, and while that’s not particularly healthy, I really enjoyed it. I also got the cheese sticks, which I always do when buying from Papa John’s, but they don’t feel quite as necessary with a pizza this good.

The biggest thing I’ll need to try is re-heating the leftover pizza tomorrow. Papa John’s typically doesn’t hold up very well after a day or two, so I’ll try to update with how that goes. Pizza Hut’s stuffed crust reheats really well, so I could see this one being similarly good.

Overall, I highly recommend this one. If you love cheese, you will love this pizza.

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 jalapeños. 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.

Big Daddy’s Pizza

Today I tried the Big Daddy’s medium pepperoni pizza. It’s pretty cheap, but pretty good! Their crust is always my favorite part of their pizzas. For the price, it’s a really good crust. They also typically add a lot of cheese, which is always nice. This one was just about perfect! At least as close as you can get to perfection for about $4.

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.
