bad pizza in calgary

I recently visited some friends in Calgary, and we decided to have pizza for dinner. After a short web search using yelp an the friendly advice at chowhound, we picked Pizza Bob's as it was close to their house in Kensingtons, offered thin crust and got favourable reviews.

This place is crap. I don't know how else to put it. The crust was thin, alright, but it was also over baked so it was cracked, hard and stiff. No chew. It was like a cracker. The toppings were ample, but so ample they weren't in proportion to the cheese and kept falling off into the box or plate off the inflexible crust. They also weren't of top fresh quality as the box claimed. The box also claims a stone oven baking, but I'm pretty sure the pizzas were just keeping warm in a faux stone oven facaded oven.

We chose it over the nearby Demetris which might have been better. However, it has apparently recently changed hands. My friend's boss, who lives in the neighbourhood called her at home one night to tell her to never go there again; it's not the same as it was.

I never thought I'd say this, but are we really that spoiled for thin crust in Edmonton? What's going on with pizza in Calgary, friends? Do you have any better recommendations for my next visit?
