Well, the confusion is over because the Arches staff has done the research, and we have found the best places to order a pizza that deliver to Mount Mary!

We recently compared five delivery pizza restaurants: Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, Topper’s Pizza, Buddy’s Pizza and Jet’s Pizza. The pizzas were rated a score of 1-5 points based on the quality of their crust, the quality of their sauce (both taste and amount) and the quality of their cheese (also taste and amount).  Here’s what we found:

*Each pizza was a size large and had only cheese on it.

1. Domino’s Pizza

dominosWhile the Arches staff collectively enjoyed Domino’s the most, this was not my favorite pizza. I remember that Domino’s dominos-pizza-chartpizza used to be my favorite delivery place, but now, it has taken a backseat.  I thought that while the crust was very flavorful, the cheese and the sauce amount were uneven and not as flavorful as I hoped it would be.  In the end, I thought that there was way too much cheese on the pizza, which made it very difficult to eat.  I do still enjoy Domino’s Pizza, but I was disappointed because the flavor was not as good as I remembered it to be from my youth.

2. Pizza Hut

pizza-hut-chartOverall, Pizza Hut pizza was my favorite pizza.  This surprised me because again, I always considered myself a Domino’s fan.  When it came down to comparing, though, I realized that I loved Pizza Hut’s crust and the evenness between the cheese and the sauce amount.  I felt that the pizza was like a flavor explosion in my mouth. I was surprised that the Arches staff voted this pizza second place under Domino’s because I just was not as impressed as I was with Pizza Hut.

3. Jet’s Pizza

jetspizzaJet’s Pizza was right in the middle.  While it was a decent pizza, some of the Arches staff said that the Jet’s Pizza sauce was a disappointment.

jets-pizza-chart-1I thought that many of the components of the pizza were flavorless.  To me, the crust was very bland and tasted like cardboard. I had high hopes for Jet’s Pizza because it was a new experience for a pizza delivery restaurant, but in the end, I was disappointed. I am happy that some of the Arches staff appreciated the taste of this pizza, but I did not enjoy it as much as I thought.

4. Buddy’s Pizza

buddys-pizza-chartI have to say that I did not really enjoy this pizza.  The best aspect of this pizza was the crust, but it felt that it took a long time to get there because I had to wrestle through the cheese with a small amount of sauce mixed into the pizza.  When I finally got to the crust part, almost all of the sauce was on that end, which was somewhat frustrating.  I do have to say that the crust was very flavorful, which is why the Buddy’s pizza was not the lowest rating of all.  I did not feel that the flavors complimented each other, but at least there were different flavors there.

5. Topper’s Pizza

toppers-pizza-chartTo me, Topper’s Pizza was the most disappointing pizza.  I remembered having Topper’s only once before, and I remembered that it was one of my least favorite pizzas ever.  In addition, it was the most expensive pizza of all, and I did not think that the flavor matched the price.  I thought there was way too much cheese almost to a point where I toppers-pizzacouldn’t taste the other components of the pizza. I am happy that the Arches staff agreed on this pizza as well, because to me, the amount of sauce and cheese was very uneven, and the excess cheese made it very hard to eat.

Based on the results, if there is ever a time when a pizza craving hits, the Arches staff recommends ordering from Domino’s pizza.  Their delicious crust, gooey cheese,  and flavorful sauce along with a reasonable price will not disappoint!
