Aha! So THAT's why the frozen ones taste different from the restaurant and take-out: they use conveyors in the distribution center! I KNEW there was something!

Pizza is not that good go to the stoney’s Pub in Middleborough and get the best pizza 🤮

Too bad it cost double the price of a Ron Emmas pizza. What's the deal with that? These guys must be bajillionaires by now.

I think it’s a pretty neat pizza

Enjoyed seeing this on channel 5.

I’ve eaten a bunch of those pizzas !

soo good!
