We all know the first law of Pizza-Like Objects: If it's made with some combination of zesty tomato sauce, a wheat-based bready product, and oozy melted cheese with a hint of pepperoni, it's going to taste good. Perhaps not great, but reliably pretty good. And that's the problem with English muffin pizza. It's good stuff, to be sure, but the thing about good things is that they all have the ability to be great.

While these pizza mutts can never rival the real thing, nostalgia can breed some pretty fierce loyalty to devotees of this class of pizza snack. Which pizza-bread hybrid do you love best?
