PIZZA!!

What MSC's shop pizza places. I live in a very rural area so the shops I have access to are limited. I am going on a vacation to a "big city" and am interested in doing some shops for meals. TIA

Field Agent had a few pizza evaluations this past weekend. I'm unsure on if they'd be releasing another wave anytime soon, but check it out!
A Closer Look does some pizza shops in my state, but I know it varies from region to region. Plus, you have to have been shopping with them for awhile to see some of their clients as they will only be visible to shoppers with a good shopper rating that has to be built up over time, and their reports can be lengthy. There is a brewery restaurant that is a national chain for Mercantile Systems and they offer pizza on the menu, but I don't think they are shopped at all of their locations and the shops may not be available where you are going.

But I have to ask whether or not you are staying at a hotel? If you are, consider the vacation time you will be missing being cooped up in a hotel writing reports when you could be out having fun somewhere! I never shop on vacation unless I am staying with a relative who has a job and I am alone for a good part of the day. When I visit my brother and his wife in Houston, I will sometimes arrive midweek and do a hotel shop upon my arrival, then spend the next day writing the report while they are at work. But that's only if it's a hotel shop with a fee. And if they were retired I would not do any shops because none of us are getting any younger and I don't want to miss the opportunity to make memories with my family.
If you want cheap (in my personal opinion nasty) pizza try Sinclair. These shops are so easy to report you most likely will only waste about 10 minutes of your vacation.... But seriously, if your going to a new place I would want to try the local food. Try doing a few extra jobs around your area and think of that as 'food money' for the vacation.
I would rather do a $15 bank job that I normally wouldn't do and tell myself that's $15 for food without a report while on vacation.

Does Sinclair still do them in your area? They moved to the FA app in my area which theoretically make them even easier.

No that's nasty pizza, barely ediable

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
Does anyone remember the Chef Boyardee Pizza kits from the 70s? I don't know if they still make those (or if they are the same recipe), but THAT was bad pizza...yet fun because we got to make our own, and we ate it. I think kids will eat just about anything as long as there is "pizza". I also remember being a kid and eating school pizza. I think it was like cardboard with cheese and sauce, yet all of us kids finished it off with no problem.

I have eaten some of the other "bad" pizzeria chains pizzas and it's not been so bad, just not something I would eat on a regular basis. And I think anyone with kids should give it a go, since usually the dough is enriched with B vitamins and there is calcium from the cheese, etc. Far worse things you could be feeding your kids.
JAS, I don't remember those Chef Boyardee Pizza things, but I was in Germany for my only years in the 70s. I used to love the school pizzas, but you're right, pretty much cardboard with cheese and sauce and who knows what was in either lol. I remember in grade school, my Mom used to get Elios pizzas for parties and everyone could make up their own pizza with dozens of toppings. I remember having the most "topped" pizza and being totally disappointed when someone would just pick a plain pizza or there would be one piece of pepperoni in the middle of one. My boyfriend and I will get Elios for old times sake and it is definitely half the size and a tenth of the flavor of the ones "back in the day".

To each their own. I have no particular issues with it overall. There are times it's better than others, but I generally like it.
Off topic, but these new fad cauliflower pizzas prasied by Dr. Oz, are horrible, even with olive added on, still tasted bland. Instead, try the Trader Joe's four pack of small round pizzas, no good microwaved, but defrosted and cooked in oven makes them excellent. Remember to add on bit of olive oil. Yummy !!

My mom used to make those pizzas along with the Chef Boyardee spaghetti back in the 80s. I haven't thought about those in years, I'm not sure if they still make them or not.

A little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men.

When my parents babysat for my first son when I went back to teaching, they would sometimes serve him Chef-Boy-R-Dee Raviolis from a can. He called them "Spaghetti pillows." They were disgusting, but he loved them.

I had a babysitter (yes - it was a LONG time ago) who served my brother and me spaghetti-o's from a can with hot dogs cut up in nickel sized pieces in it. We thought it was great, a real treat because we never got that stuff at home.
My mother never made things out of a can unless it was in a casserole, so we never had things like spagheetios or beefaroni. I remember staying at my friend's house and her Mom would put spaghettios in our thermos for lunch and would be beyond excited. I can't imagine eating that now.

Skylamae, I used to live in California near where Trader Joe's was located. When I moved to Maryland, I was happy to see them here.

Then I went into a store. I was very disappointed.
