They should offer "Correct Pizza Delivery" first. I got someone else's pizza on Saturday (pepperoni instead of sausage).

Pepperoni is sausage. And not coincidentally the best sausage. Even chorizo is like damn I wish I was pepperoni tho.

[pepperoni is spicy, Italian, and sausage!] :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

But we can all agree that Papa Johns mostly sucks.

Not Pizza Hut sucks, but still mostly sucks.

I like Papa John's for what it is. It's a specific taste. It's also delivered, and still open.

But usually the local/regional franchise joints suck least.

Pizza Hut's problem is that their 'hand tossed' pizza crust is still baked in a dish that's almost always so full of shortening that the crust fries rather than bakes, and they don't use enough sauce so it mostly tastes like fried crust and congealed cheese product. Papa John's sauce isn't very good and neither is the crust or cheese, but the crust isn't fried and the sauce is detectable and does a tiny bit to balance the congealedness of the cheese product.

It's been so long since I've tried Dominoes that I couldn't compare them anymore. They'd made an attempt to seem upscale, to mixed results, but I only had it a couple of times before I found a really good cheap-and-greasy local chain that had green chiles and green olives as options, both of which are superior to green bell peppers and black olives, respectively.

The problem with Papa John's is that the crust isn't fried, and the sauce has this really bright tomato-forward taste that is gross, like all bright tomato flavors are.

Domino's is great. Crust is doughy and a little crisped up on the outside, sauce is pretty restrained, and there's plenty of garlic everywhere.

Pepperoni is okay, but lets simmer down a bit. It's trashpanda charcuterie and sometimes that's what you want but it should know its place.

The local pizza place has sauce so sweet it's basically tomato icecream. LaRosas - because Cincinnati wasn't done after screwing up chili.

But that place is delivery pizza.

Team Meh on the Pepperoni.
I'll take any other pig meat over pepperoni, Italian sausage, ham, pork roast, even bacon.

Our go-to is [fresh] Italian sausage and onion. Pepperoni is OK, but as J points out, it's typically trash pepperoni from most take-out joints. You can sometimes find better cured sausage as a topping at gastro-pubs.

Pepperoni is just a generic name for slightly spicy Italian dry salami. Don't know why Jason would call it "trashpanda charcuterie" though I'm sure most of the stuff used on American pizzas isn't of very high quality, nor is most of the stuff you can buy (especially, pre-sliced) at the store very good.

When we lived in Italy we were in walking distance of a pizzaria that served a "diavolo" with a salami topping that was at least two times as spicy as what you get most of the time in the U.S..

Yes, of course, salami is a sort of sausage, but what appears to be the generic understanding in the use for a sausage topping is crumbled mild Jimmy Dean or some such. I don't care for it; my wife likes it.

It's a low rent knock off of soppressata calabria and other toe of the boot salami, in the same way guidos are knock offs of people from calabria and surrounding. And that's even the best case. By the time you get to delivery pizza it's a grim thing.

That was the dumbest column ever. Sorry sir, there's like, more than "ham" and "bacon" as the entirety of cured pork. Why isn't it on people who don't know to try it? JFC I could go on.

This is undeniably true. I've had good pepperoni, and most isn't. But in the cheap-delivery-pizza market it's often the least-bad meat option. I keep occasionally trying italian sausage and keep getting something that's technically distinguishable from porkish hamburger. You know what you're getting with shitty pepperoni, but sausage is a crap shoot.

The Vandals and various *goth tribes learned pepperoni from the Roman Legions, turned it into landjager, and hundreds of years later, America turned it into Slim Jims.

Even shitty sausage is better than middling pepperoni.
