I don't think I have had the worst pizza I ever ate yet. With the trend towards using cheaper-and-cheaper ingredients, I'm sure I will come across pizza worse than anything I have had in the past.

Seriously.  Your choices are:
a) Chain
B) Frozen
C) Clueless

If, IF, you find a gem amidst the gravel, it's like a punch to the chest.  You are floored by how un-sucky it is.

At least you have great buffalo and elk steaks out your way.

Being new to the area and not having Donatos back in Wisconsin, I have never eaten Donato's pizza before.  The other day, I saw a guy on the local news who is the world champion pizza crust tosser in international competition and he worked for Donatos so I assumed Donato's hand tossed all their pizza's from scratch made dough. Being the type to try anything once, I placed my order and ran down to pick it up.  Typically, I patronize the smaller "mom and pop" type places.

That pizza was the worst I ever had.  The dough and all the ingredients tasted processed just like the prepackaged veggies one would get at Subway.  The sausage was the precooked tasteless variety and to top it off, the veggies were still raw and the crust undercooked.  Never going back.

I was under the impression that outside of the Northeast and perhaps the Chicago area that everyone liked raw veggies on  pizza.

Pizza is like sex: it's not at its best when you're buying it from an animatronic rodent.

You win! That's about as bad a description of "pizza" as I've ever heard. pb

If you used crusty chewy Italian bread and  mozzarella cheese and mortadella you might have something there.

The worst pizza ever? The frozen rectangles of school pizza, especially after the government required reduced-fat cheese. The crust was cardboard and the cheese melted very weirdly. The taste? Indescribably horrible.
I was a school head cook for a few years and wanted the kids to experience good food. So I made dozens of homemade French bread loaves and made French Bread pizza. The high school kids gobbled it up and asked for more, but the elementary students cried that it wasn't REAL pizza. The only kind of pizza they would eat was the cardboard pizza. Talk about a letdown.

By the way, I found that most of the school recipes are fairly good... a little under seasoned but that's understandable. It was the frozen cheap crap that the kids loved that gives school lunch a bad name.

Again, Dominos,Pizza Hut....Papa John's......Costco Pizza...and any chain that puts lots of sugar in the sauce...doesn't use a real pizza oven(no conveyer belt(wood fired is best!)...and any other cheap short cuts.Such pizzas should be labeled "pizza sunstitute product" Give extra points to a pizzeria that uses fresh basil and real Buffalo muzzarela!

Worst: This place out in mid Missouri called "Pizza Cabin". it truly was disgusting.

Even worse: Pi Pizza here on the island. I like woodfired pizzas, but not when they're carbon.

We have one by that name opening in Dayton near a college and I noted several around the country by that name that I found with a Google search.

This is the piece on the new Dayton operation:

It seems more than a coincidence they all have the same name.  And similar style and operations.

OK.  This is true.  As we speak, I have an elk tenderloin brining for the grill tonight.  I still wish there was a decent pizza joint within 200 miles.
 
Side note - Chance of snow tonight.  Gonna be a loooong winter.

Mystic Pizza. Not sure I'd say it was 'the worst' I've ever had, but it was the most disappointing (should have done my research before going there).

I believe that the only really good pizza comes from local joints located within 10 miles of I-95 between New Haven CT and New Brunswick NJ.


As long as you DONT include New Brunswick!! Lousy Lousy pizza!!!!!

I agree...Mystic is such a great town to explore, rich in history...and we were excited to also go to the pizzeria made famous in the movie....we went twice...years ago when it was still small, similar to the movie...and a few years ago when it had grown to a tourist trap living off the movie.....terrible pizza, not much better than chain pizza....and certainly NOT worth the price!Definately see Mystic..great walking town...but skip the pizza!!!

Toppers.

They have a bunch of one-topping specials & they are HORRIBLE. Their website says they have a bunch of interesting looking pizzas, btu I work with a bunch of unadventurous eaters.

It's real hard to screw a pizza up. The other really bad ones I've had were also in the midwest. I did not like Pantera's Pizza, which is home of the "Hunk". The pizzas are so greasy that you have to use at least three napkins to soak up the grease.

If it is olive oil that is making the "grease" I wouldn't mind it.

I beg to differ...it's very easy to screw up a pizza...at least a good pizza...many chains do it countless times every day...as has been discussed here at roadfood many times, there is an art to making a traditional Italian pizza...quality ingredients and the artistc touch of the maker.....

Indubitably,  and generally speaking most pizzerias, and ALL large  chains, screw up the crust the worst of all.  Our LaRosa's chain here screws up everything!

I have yet to meet a pizza that was inedible. It is prehaps the only food that no matter how crappy it is I still like it. The pizza at the drive in movies, the pizza sold by the slice at costco, even the english muffin pizza made in the Toast-R-Oven is acceptable. Of course I live in the nexus of the best pizza on earth (connecticut) so I guess I can be generous.
