Better racism, less pizza, Papa Johns

    One advantage of living in the Northeast is that one need never eat chain pizza.

    The downside to living in California is there are very few nonchain pizza joints that are quality or are there at all. The best I can hope for in my area is a minor chain. It is actually good, but a chain. Papa John's is straight trash. I'll go Little Caesar's or Pizza Hut before that place. Still I've seen people have a straight face when they've talked about needing to open one in their area. I don't get the allure.

    NotCal has plenty near me. In fact I’m sitting in a deep dish place right now, great place called Zachary’s Pizza.

    Weak. My area of NorCal is lacking unless I want to schlep to San Jose but none of the places are 45-minute drive on a whim good.

    Melo's Pizza in Pleasant Hill was amazingly good back when. Either Pietro's in Vacaville is authentic, too. Places like Martinez (with a large Italian immigrant population) usually have excellent Italian restaurants. But then there's Round Table.

    Not true if you live in New England other than Hartford or New Haven. Massachusetts Greek-style pizza is trash. Avoid anyplace called Nick's, Greg's or Theo's House of Pizza like the plague. Makes Domino's seem delicious by comparison.

    A branch of Frank Pepe's opened in the mall about a five minute drive from my house. Not as good as the original, but still better than pretty good.
