Little Caesar’s 

Outstanding $5 hot & ready at Little Caesar’s!  It’s especially great when it comes out both!  More often than not, when it’s ready, it’s unfortunately been sitting a while getting all dried out, etc.  Timing is critical! 


Ramona Lisa Pizza 

Recently I had an outstanding stromboli from Ramona Lisa Pizza. It was markedly better than previous versions I’ve had under prior ownership. Made with pepperoni, ham, salami, bell pepper, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce for only $10.99.

Roughly the size of a small throw pillow, it’s the perfect sized meal for two. There did appear to be some unfortunate moisture weepage at the base, so be sure to elevate the stromboli to prevent a soggy bottom. Oddly, the side sauce was stone cold, but it was just as well. The sauce cooked inside was the perfect amount without any extra side. 

Overall an excellent pizzeria comfort food that I would order again in a heartbeat.

Grandstand Pizza 

Grandstand Pizza makes an outstanding pie! Occasionally though they skimp on the toppings, but the pizzas are still really good! They clearly use really high quality ingredients and employ good cooking techniques. The crust here is definitely the star. I really appreciate how you can actually taste the cheese!

Domino’s Pizza 

About two days before Thanksgiving I stop cooking! Need to save myself for the big day. I thank the good Lord for Domino’s tonight and their top shelf staff! Calling in was professional and 100% accurate with my fairly complex order. I was warmly greeted upon arrival while commencing to take delivery of two outstanding pies.  

I highly recommend the sliced Italian sausage topping. Much better than those little nodules that look like something else…

The Par Lounge 

I have a love / hate relationship with the pizza at Par!  Sometimes it’s overcooked, sometimes not enough cheese, sometimes just right!  Can you guess which this one was?  Oh, and a salad to round things out. 

Antonio’s Pizzeria 

Tremendous order of fish & chips from a pizzeria of all places!

Little Caesar’s 

Outstanding Italian sausage pizza from Little Caesar’s!

Domino’s Pizza 

Domino’s Pizza for dinner recently! Our new family favorite is made with a white alfredo sauce plus chicken and bacon. If you haven’t tried this combination before, I highly recommend it. It’s an outstanding flavor sensation. A nice departure from the traditional, ho-hum red sauce.

Last week we had a great alfredo/chicken/bacon pie from Ramona Lisa (despite the cheese spooge) and this weekend we put Domino’s to the test. I elected to get their homemade pan style pizza and it was outstanding. Two layers of cheese, toppings to the edge, then baked in a pan for a crust that comes out golden and crispy with a buttery taste. Shown here is a medium for $12.74.

I was shocked and appalled to find out that parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper envelopes are no longer available! You can however purchase a side of these pizza condiment staples for an extra dollar each. No thank you. Anyway, I did appreciate very much the online ordering from Domino’s website. I was able to track the progress in real time. I knew exactly when Alyssa was prepping, baking, quality checking, etc. 

For chain store pizza I’ve usually been fairly impressed with Domino’s. They do a respectable job and I hold them in just slightly higher esteem than Pizza Hut.

Ramona Lisa Pizza 

Quick one today! We got two outstanding pizzas recently from Ramona Lisa. I’m pleased to report that the crust was a nice golden brown, not burnt. The order was 100% accurate and ready in the prescribed timeframe. 

Shown here is a medium white sauce (Alfredo) pizza with chicken and bacon. As you can see there an obscene amount of cheese. It was very good, but everyone agreed it was a little too salty. Also a large pepperoni/sausage that was outstanding.

Need to be very careful driving these pizzas home! Keep the box perfectly flat in the car; don’t brake too quickly; and take it slow around tight corners. There’s so much going on with all the toppings that the blanket of hot cheese easily becomes victim to centripetal force.

Domino’s Pizza 

My new favorite chain pizza is now Domino’s!  Better than that Hut place…  Even if their Italian sausage looks like some kind of animal dropping.  Anyway, the pan pizza is outstanding and the chicken/bacon with alfredo sauce is perfect for those with red sauce issues.
