Papa John's is NOT good pizza,by any definition of the word...it is dominos,pizza hut etc quality....those people who RAVE must also eat at McDonalds etc.......or don't live near a real Italian pizzeria. Send them to New York or Connecticut!!!

I live in Mesa, Arizona...WAY more than 350 miles from the Atlantic. I used to live in NJ, so I am very particular about my Pizza. I found two (count 'em...2) places here locally that make me feel like I'm sittin' in a pizza place in NY when I have their pizza. One is Ray's Pizza (yes...from the NY chain) here in Mesa and the other is a small place in Scottsdale called "Rome's". Both are pretty AWESOME!!. Worst Pizza I ever had was pretty much ANY pizza from Payson Arizona. They ALL tasted like frozen pizza...YUCK!!

Good luck and let me know...I'm not sure, but it might have been called The Red Devil...sold pasta and other Italian! Old timers would know of it and it's address.It was very popular then,,,and almost the only Pizza game in town back then.....I think the owner's name in the 60's was Joe. Im curious. Let me know.

I just got a few minutes from work to do a little research and here is what I found out: It is now called "Red Devil Italian Restaurant and Pizza". There are 4 of them here in the Valley - Phoenix, Tempe, and Glendale area...none here in Mesa yet. They have a website - www.reddevilrestaurant.com and I believe it may be the one you are talking about because the web site says "Family owned since 1960".
 
Now that I know where they are, I'll have to go and give them a try!! Thanks again for the tip! Have a GREAT New Year!
 
I just visited the web site and noticed that the one on Southern Ave in Tempe is in "Red Devil Shopping Mall"...the same mall that has a favorite hobby shop of my husband and myself. Next time we go to that hobby shop, I'll have to stop in the restaurant.

Thanks guys...yes that's the family...Joe Digino was the brother of my Uncle Dan's wife...This Joe must be his son...We last ate there in 1963....since they weren't blood relatives or close to my dad, we only went a few times, but I remember loving the pizza....If you guys go say ,"Hi" I'm the nephew of "Uncle Dan", Joe's brother!!!

Guys, I just had fun looking at the web site. I don't remember the original location...or if any of these locations is the original...the Red Devil in 1963 was much more like an east coast pizza joint. One thing I remember clearly was their pasta came from Italy.Joe told my dad and I that....and at 17, I remember saying to him, "That's something special. Why don't you advertise that fact?" He said he'd think about it. Not too many places would have had Italian pasta back in '63. Wish I was back in the Valley of the Sun to relive old memories....
 Hope you go and hope the pizza is as good as it was in '63. I remember my dad saying it was hard to find pizza in Phoenix in those days and good pizza was almost impossible. He said Joe's was special...and I found out he was right.Dying to know what you think. Tell them I'm John and Irene's son,Leon(but don't any of you ever call me THAT!

Hey Lee...New Brunswick, eh?...Hubby and I moved here in 1999 from Spotswood (right near East Brunswick and Old Bridge). Holy cow...what a small world!! If/When I go there I will certainly remember to tell them you said "hi". Lots of GREAT Pizza came out of New Brunswick. A few years back, we went to a small pizza place in Tempe called "Greasy Tony's"...Yep...it was the very same "Greasy Tony" that my hubby used to go to as a teenager in New Brunswick. Unfortunately, Tony took ill a few years ago and had to close his place. Never did find out how he made out. Hope all is well with him.

Worst Pizza here in Chicago that I've eaten was from a place on Diversey and Central Park called "Little Clown Pizza", The Pizza sauce was greesy, the crust was garlic-e-like in a bad way. I've eaten better Pizza from Aldi's Supermarket, than this one.

I was desperate for a pizza Sunday night, and pretty much nothing was open, so I tried the 7-11 on Main Street in Glastonbury. I couldn't recall ever having had 7-11 pizza.
 
It's kind of remarkable - or rather, it would be, if the end product were any good. They transfer it from a freezer to an oven, where it bakes for three minutes. That and $5.55 will give you a pizza-like product, as authorized for distribution by the Seven & I Holdings Co.
 

 
... yeah. Never again. Spongy, chewy, mealy crust; sauce that reminded me of those Little Charlie's individual frozen pizzas (anyone else remember those?); four cheeses that all managed to be tasteless.
 
Tombstone or Red Baron would have been better. Little Caesars would have been better. Even that godforsaken "Marketside" stuff from Wal-Mart would have been better.  Odd as it may sound, there is a gradient of quality even in the lowest tier of pizza.  
 
I've no choice but to balance out this mistake by going to New Haven this weekend.

Probably the worst pizza I ever ate was a Chef Boyardee kit when I was a kid c 1950 (I was 8), but since my mother let me make it, it was also the best pizza I ever ate.

TJ, With your vast knowledge of the Cincinnati food scene and inability to find good pizza, of which I am finding pretty much nationwide now in my RV travels, I have only one recommendation. MOVE! Life is too short to be denied good pizza.
 
Or you can start making your own. With the Internet there are no mysteries or secrets anymore in regard to making great pizza. Go to Pizzamaking.com and find a wealth of information.
 
OMG! This was evil post 6666.

While visiting my friends in Olympia, I pointed out a Papa Murphy's, which I'd had experience with during my residence in Kansas City.  "They have good pizza," one of my friends, originally from Chicago, said.  I gave him a look.  "For here," he amended.

Actually, several NC shops claim to serve authentic NY-style pizza and do good business with the relocated yankees. I've tried these pies and they all taste like 💩 to me. I guess it depends on what you are used to eating.

One interesting project might be to seek out establishments that claim to serve "authentic XXXX-style" whatever, where XXXX is a place far, far away... but manage to actually pull it off.  They must exist!

The truth of the matter is that most pizza within NYC itself sucks.....there are some quality places but the majority of typical pizza placers are only a notch above Dominoes ( which have many stores in NYC doing good business). So "NY Style" does not  necessarily equal good.

True, calling it New York style doesn't make it so, calling it "pizza" doesn't necessarily make it so. But I've been going to NYC often for close to 60 years, and some of the worst pizza I've had(even last week) is far better than Dominoes.Some people are so conditioned to regular fast food eating, they forgot or don't know what the real,original food tastes like. Mikey D's, does it sell REAL hamburgers?? Does Arby's sell real roast beef??? Of Course not. And this Italian knows Dominoes sells a food item that no Italian would ever mistake for pizza. Calling it so, doesn't make it so......and I'll take 80% of the small pizza shops in NYC over that chain stuff any day!!!

Re: The worst Pizza you ever ate!! 2016/07/06 11:51:48
So my point is if you're a younger person and have grown up on Dominoes and their ilk,you have grown up thinking that stuff is "pizza" Your taste buds are brainwashed. And if you don't live near the real thing, you are correct calling it NYC pizza, doesn't necessarily make it so.
