Chain Pizza Restaurants

Seems @xylo and others have an issue with Zizzi. Not sure why. To my mind they’re definitely way better than Pizza Express, Strada and Pizza Hut, although they’ve lost a little for me since they stopped doing that long veggie pizza that was half roasted aubergine with pesto and half creamy potatoes.

Up until yesterday I would have said that Pizza Hut is the only bad chain pizza restaurant. But it’s not. Bad, I mean. So I don’t think there are any bad chain pizza restaurants. They’re all at least OK.


#3

Because it’s shit, Theo.

Well, actually, it’s not shit, it’s just beige in restaurant form.


#4

Pizza express is the worst one, the rest are at least good.


#5

Some days you just want a chain pizza restaurant because other places are a nightmare with the kids, amongst other things.

What’s your ranking of the chain pizza restaurants? Or are you just too good for them all.


#6

I’ve had some very nice meals from all of them.


#7

don’t think I’ve ever been to Zizzi

Not been for a while (now Brighton suddenly has loads of good Pizza places) - but Pizza Express is absolutely “fine”


#8

I’m lactose intolerant, but yes.


#9

If you live in any half decent city you’ll never have a reason to visit any of the chain places.

VIP 4 LYFE


#11

Can’t remember the last time I went to a chain pizza place that wasn’t a Franco Manca’s.


#12

yep - love a VIP

but NuPosto, Pizza500 and Fatto are all v good too


#13

Is it possible to have a decent pizza restaurant, seems like the best pizza in the world would still only be mediocre


#14

What if Nandos did pizza


#15

They’re nice. I’m not sure if I rate them above Zizzi.


#16

39 restaurants now and counting. The benefits of being taken over by a large corporation.

Haven’t been to FM for years, obviously.


#17

Not having that. Pizza hut is the worst by a long, long way.


#18

Strada is definitely the best out of those in the OP


#19

Pizza Hut is really quite shit. Went a while back expecting to revel in the nostalgia, and it was awful, the pizza is like eating a greasy door mat, and the salad bar is a grim procession of dried up green matter. No adult could possibly be happy with a Pizza Hut meal.

Don’t care, no one should, get a grip.
