Battle of the Brick Ovens, Stamford « Our 1st Post for CBS Connecticut

21 Jul

Which of the brick ovens produced this pie?

Ever the rabid pizza lovers, we came up with a plan for our first CBS Connecticut post.  We wanted to explore the awesomeness of brick oven pizzas, with a focus on Stamford, our stomping grounds.  So, click through, read, drool over the cheesy goodness, then head straight to one of the spots we talked about–well, maybe most of them. ZazaTappo, Remo’s, Nonna’s, and Southport Brewing Co. are in the spotlight.   If you feel inclined, click on the FB “Recommend” button on top.

 If you’re ever in need of a conversation starter, just start talking about pizza. We have yet to meet a person that doesn’t have a strong opinion on this matter. But, whether thin crust is your thing, or you’re loyal to pan style, it’s hard to deny the amazing taste that comes from cooking pizza in a brick oven. With the ability to cook crust evenly and quickly for a light and crispy texture, while keeping the ingredients on top fresh and full of flavor, a brick oven pizza is unbeatable when done right. No wonder why so many of them have been popping up in Stamford. So, to help you find the shortest path to pizza-topia, here is a guide to some of the most popular brick oven spots in Stamford…”

    Awesome job guys! I think a little place called Tarry Lodge will give all these places a run for their money though up Westport way.
