Well, yes, but the fact that a product appeals to millions does not mean that it's necessarily going to appeal to me or that it maintains any particular level of quality. It means simply that it appeals to lots of people, whose taste may or may not be similar to mine.

You have to like Chicago-style pizza for that, and I don't particularly. I much prefer a thinner, crispy crust, but still with some heft to it, particularly around the edges. Soggy crusts don't do it for me at all.
Chicago-style pizza: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago-style_pizza.


Udon has numerous places which sell pizza; some I like more than others. Actually, I don't have a single favorite place, -- several places here sell pizzas which I quite like. Generally, I prefer thinner pizza, with a crispy crust. Quality ingredients always help, too. At least one pizza vendor in Udon imports its own cheese from Italy. It's true that I tend to have a bias against large restaurant chains for several reasons, ingredient quality being one of the major ones. That said, Capital Grille in the U.S. is a large (currently 54 locations) red meat, slab-o-beef chain which maintains excellent standards of quality and preparation in all of its products; so there are exceptions to my rule! On the other hand, it's sufficiently pricey that I go there verrry rarely. http://www.thecapitalgrille.com/home

As I said in my earlier post, it's all about personal taste, it's great you've found good pizza and I know the place you are talking about, I'll give the pizza a go next time I'm in there.

vincemunday!
Wow man, you seem to think you know a lot about pizza! What exactly is it that makes you such a pizza "expert"? Have you owned a pizzeria? Or a chain of them? Do you make pizzas at home? Have you eaten at every pizzeria on the planet? Just curious.
I'm pretty certain you haven't had a pizza at either of my shops; Brooklyn's or the ROCKHOUSE.
Frozen dough??? Fake cheese??? Do people really serve this stuff to customers??? Yes they do!
Most think because the eat pizza they know what makes a great pizza. Others (chains) can in no way compete when it comes to quality with small shops. FACT!
My pizzas are hand made from scratch the minute they're ordered. Fresh dough, fresh real mozz, fresh ingredients bought daily at the local market, and REAL pepperoni! Not salami used for pepperoni. The trick though to great pizza is not the dough, but the WATER one uses to craft the dough.
Opening a pizza shop a pizza maker does not make you!
For you, vincemunday, I invite you to try one of my 16" Brooklyn style pizzas, and if you honestly don't like it it's on the house! I'll put my knowledge on the subject where my mouth is and back it back with a quality product.
See you Sunday at Brooklyn's on Adulyadet Road

Wow man? Oh dear.... Well I suppose it's better than you busting in on EVERY thread with your menu and special offers. I have gone back though my postings here and at no point do I claim to be an expert, in fact I go to great pains to say each to their own. The fact remains, whether you agree or not, Pizza Hut is a huge, HUGE chain and they produce pizza that most people find acceptable, my guess is they sell more pizza worldwide in a minute that you will sell in a lifetime. I am VERY pleased they're opening and by the sounds of it so are a few others I shan't take you up on your very kind offer, one of my favourite mass producers is opening soon, I can wait.

What some of these people need to understand is that chains whether it be Mc Donald's, KFC, Pizza Hut etc become chains because they produce people what want to eat, of course this might not suit the sensibilities of some of the apparent gourmands on this forum but it's fact, you don't get to be a multi billion pound chain without getting something right.


What a joke, you quote the likes of McDonalds and KFC as being great and doing it right,,,, yeah right on dude, real wholesome food, put a McDonalds burger in a cupboard for three years and it comes out looking the same as it did three years earlier, and some dumb arses actually eat it...

I don't say it's great at all, but you can't argue with the business model, they turn over more Pizza, burgers and chicken than any other company in the world because? It makes me laugh that people eat something they think is good and think everyone else should do the same, I've eaten in at least one of the places you purportedly patronise Bob and to be honest I wouldn't go back but hey, you're the gourmand..... By the way, nice to see someone spelling arse right.

When Dean ran the monkey bar in Nutty park I can tell you that his everything on it pizza was the best tasting and best value in town.
After he closed it was a bit hit or miss where you get one, Pizza hut or the other one in Centara, offer reasonable ones, but T bar also does a pizza which is really acceptable.
As VM says it is horses for courses, if you like it , eat it.

I love fast food for convenience and speed, but it is made pretty bland so no one dislikes it. A real burger or pizza kills it for taste

I've eaten Papa Z's pizzas and I think they are excellent and will have another in a few days. He's offering a 16" two topping pizza for 199 Baht for dine-in or take-out only at his Brooklyn's Original Pizza House on Adulyadet Road from 5-7 PM daily. Pappa Z is a US Marine who has served multiple tours of duty in the Middle East conflicts, so for that reason alone I would frequent his establishments just to honor him for his service to country. He's a hard-working guy who is dedicated to serving a quality product, and how can you beat a freshly cooked 16" pizza for 199 Baht? Believe me...it's well worth the visit.

Have to agree with Vince, local pizza are quite sad, by everyone.

Hard to beat Pizza Co 2 for 1, but if not on sale, terrible value, along with too much oil in the crust.

Except for Dean's, and since I used to enjoy his breads, naan and such, guessing his pizza is / was excellent, so a good start. If the crust isn't perfect, don't bother putting toppings on. Along with lots of sauce and cheese, and other toppings, just icing on the cake. If you can't get the first 3 right, don't bother embarrassing yourself.

That is where most so called 'pizza shops' fail. Don't like thin crust, or hard crust. I've eaten at every vendor mentioned, and then some, and never ordered a second pizza from them, and as Vince says, just not for me.

Vanilla chocolate strawberry, if you boring, if me, peanut butter, rocky rd, rum raisin. 8)

One guy (who can't be mentioned) does a decent pizza, but you have to order extra everything, though tasty, but sadly, I just don't like him, as apparently many others don't, as he continues to open and close shops quite often.....so must not be me.

Farang managed vendors in UT...........the worst. Did have one Thai / Thai owned and operated, that put out excellent pizza, but started to slip, and now closed, though more for family issues. But slipped enough I stopped buying before they closed up.

I make my own, and family won't eat anyone else's.........not an expert, but get rave reviews. And from scratch.

In the states, Pizza Hut in Philly was good, if doing a big chain, and on special. To many ma / pa pizza shops done right to consider a chain in Philly.

In Memphis, Dominoes put out the best pizza. Here in Krung Thep.........they suck, and I do mean suck.....horrible. I've had a couple by the slice there, in KT, different vendors, and a few quite good. The Loft at Chitlom has an Italian station that is quite good, or used to be, as been a while, and prices have increased with their popularity. I like value as much as flavor.

My ฿฿ anyway
