Pizza Pizza varies location to location, wish they were consistent. This I will agree with, almost always I will ask for a well done pizza.
Not really. They're a chain so they use the same things. Their peperoni tastes the same. Their sauce does too. So does virtually everything else. I guess the only variation is how it's cooked.

You would be surprised at how much they can vary. I've had slices from Mississauga locations with giant crusts, giant air bubbles (disgusting) and TONS of oil. Other locations will be perfect (but still ***** , since it's pizza pizza).

Can you explain this please? Why does "well done" make a Pizza Pizza pie better? They are usually quite crisp no matter where the location.
I ask for well done because sometimes the pizza is undercooked and the dough is not cooked inside, it will saves you from an upset stomach. Better play it safe is my motto.

In theory yes, franchise products should taste the same. But I live near 2 pizza pizza's one tastes better.

I don't doubt you, but the pizza is pretty much the same..it varies a bit from location to location but not that much.

I'm sure they both taste similar. Pizza Pizza peperoni is unlike any other pizza place. Sauce too. Crust as well. Every chain has their own distinct taste. Pizza Pizza has its own distinct taste.

Franchises are supposed to be uniform, but how many times have we been to say a KFC store and the chicken tastes better at one location. I'll point to an example, the one at Lawrence Plaza and the one on Avenue Rd and Lawrence. You can taste the difference, Avenue rd much better. Then there are certain Tim's stores the product quality is different, I think we all have our favorite Tim's stores, it may just because some are busier and you get a fresher product. I can point to a locaton on Airport rd and Steeles that I go to because the Bagel maker spreads the cream cheese more ilberally that it covers the hole. I like this, and go back.

The Pizza Pizza at John Garland and Martin Grove rd doesn't compare with location at Kipling and Rexdale. Kipling location bigger, and much busier, better product.

I agree ingredients are the same, this is why they are franchises. But not all franchise locations are made equal. Try any of these locations I mentioned. Would welcome what you think after trying them. Cheers.

I agree. It's downright terrible, but some people seem to like it.
