What is one of America's favorite foods? It's pizza of course. Pizza chains are in every town across the United States from national pizza chains to locally-owned pizza joints. Some love the national pizza restaurants while some prefer their locally owned pizzerias.

When is comes to the national brands of pizza, what is your favorite? Here is an even better question, what is the national pizza chain that you avoid at all costs? In recent years, some national pizza brands have seen a decline in business while others are opening up new locations all over the country.

Most surveys say the decline in some pizza chains is because the consumer says the ingredients don't seem fresh or the flavor tastes artificial or like a frozen pizza they buy at a grocery store.

What is your go-to pizza? is it the traditional pepperoni? Or are you a meat lover or a supreme type of pizza eater? Do you like the thin, hand-tossed, or deep-dish style pizza?

With that being said, 247wallst.com has released a list of the worst pizza chains to avoid. The site consulted pizza reviews on five different food blogs and websites to determine which national chain ranks as the worst.
