When it comes to pizza, there are plenty of chains to choose from. Of course, nothing beats a fresh slice of pizza from the local pizzeria, but sometimes you’re in a bind and need to settle for a fast food chain restaurant. But to be fair, some of them are pretty good. Some of these pizza chains are more than their pies, offering amazing sides, dips, and dessert options. Here are the best pizza fast food chains to get a quick, delicious slice and sides. 


Domino’s is one of the best pizza chains, and not just because of their delicious pies. They have an array of sides, like stuffed cheesy bread and cheese dips to dip bread into. What’s better than bread and cheese?

Their specialty pizza menu is endless, featuring pies with all types of different toppings. You can also customize your own pie with whatever toppings you’d like. And don’t forget dessert. Their cinnamon bread twists taste like heaven in your mouth.

Pizza Hut

Growing up, nothing was better than pulling up to the Target that had a Pizza Hut inside of it. I would always leave with a personal pie. And that’s still my favorite part about Pizza Hut: you can get a personal pan pizza to devour by yourself.

Pizza Hut is also known for its stuffed crust pizza, which is just cheese-filled crust that will have your mouth watering. Don’t forget to order breadsticks on the side and Cinnabon mini rolls for dessert. 

UNO Pizzeria & Grill

If you’re looking for a chain that’s a little bit more upscale, UNO is the place to go. The specialty here is Chicago-style deep dish pizzas, which is unique for its thickness and unique baking style, involving sauce on top of the cheese. My favorite is the Chicago Classic Deep Dish — featuring extra sausage and extra cheese — but there are plenty of options to choose from, like the Chicago Meat Market Deep Dish and New York Deli Deep Dish. If Chicago pizza isn’t your style, the restaurant chain also offers thin-crust pizzas to satisfy your meat or veggie cravings.

The best part is, you don’t only have to get pizza. They have so many different dishes to choose from, like salads, pastas, and desserts. I always have to get a Mega Triple Chocolate Brownie — it’s a chocolate lover’s dream — to finish off my meal, or a slice of tiramisu. 


You’ve probably driven by Sbarro on the highway, usually at a rest stop. Their specialty is pizza by the slice, which is perfect for on-the-go eating. You can also get small entrees to go, like spaghetti and strombolis. It’s as if fast food and Italian cuisine had a baby. 

Papa John’s

Papa John’s is a classic and a pioneer in the fast food pizza industry. My favorite part about Papa John’s is that you can customize your pie, down to the crust. If you pick anything besides the garlic epic stuffed crust, you’re wrong (sorry, not sorry). The garlic sauce is a necessary side, and just as good as the pizza...if not better. 

They also have a variety of “papa” sides, like papa bowls, papadias, and papa bites. A “papadia” is essentially a folded-up pizza, and it tastes as good as it sounds. For papa bites, you can choose sweet or savory, making it perfect to add as a side or for dessert. I recommend the Oreo Cookie papa bites. These chocolatey bites are a must-have after a couple of slices.
