Rock N Dough had great ingredients on the specialty and a really good sauce. The heralded crust was pretty good, but not great. This was also the priciest pizza of the group.

Trolley Stop Market had a good pizza. The crust was pretty good and was able to hold the weight of the Old McDonald. The specialty toppings really shined through!
