do you eat at a 'clean' chain pizza place, or a dirty indie one?

Ok, there are like 5 indie pizza shops around our place, and 2 chain places (a pizza hut and a papa john's). I have tried each of these. I have picked up from each place, and I am kind of annoyed about the state of the kitchens in all of the indie places, and have started always getting pizza from a chain. Now, the chain pizza has become normal for me (in a "this is what I expect", not necessarily the "best" way). Should I just think that the chain would always be cleaner (because of corporate) and go with what tastes best, even though I am watching someone take my money and then go back to kneeding dough? Or do I avoid the whole situation and make my husband pick up the pizza from now on?
