          If they gave a shit about keeping costs low mom and pop shops were primed to out perform chains.
          Pizza place I go-to I get a large 14" pizza with four toppings and 20 wings for 37 dollars.
          Dominos that would be close to 50.
          Chains don't have the luxury to suddenly shift their supply chains or ingredients. Mom and pop places can cut out middle men, change up their cheese supplier, hunt for deals on veggies, cut down their menu, etc.

    When I lived in Hartford, I tried some local places and most of them weren't very good. The one exception was the Frank Pepe's over in West Hartford.

    There were some halal pizza places that used all-beef toppings. Most of them sucked shit (you really can't do sausage or pepperoni with beef) but there was one place that did a great job and made some better calzones than what I'd had at "Italian" places.

      It's never been easier to have your own pizza oven at home now though. Thanks to ooni, there are half a dozen options for $200-300 pizza ovens out there. No longer does the pleb have to make a brick oven outside. The pleb can now make authentic perfect pies right at home, with whatever shit they want as toppings. They even sell pizza dough kits now, and jarred/canned pizza sauce is a thing.

          homosexuals, all of you for buying pizza of all things.
          I can have a pizza in the oven 15 minutes from walking in the door. Prepping batches of dough to save in your fridge is not hard at all.

          The key to good pizza crust is high gluten flour and a pizza stone. Everything after that helps to be mindful of but that's the big one. It's not something you have to be super strict about.
          Also I like to put in a little garlic and rosemary in my dough because I'm just a rebel like that.

          That's what I would figure. Don't have a commercial oven, 475° reasonable? Thinking 45/45/10 whole wheat bread / white bread / rye flours.
