Because a list of the top 100 pizzas in America isn’t just enough, The Daily Meal set out on a journey across the great ol’ US of A to find the 101 best pizzas. They did their research, finding local and regional favorites, then contacted pizza shops. They asked what their most popular pizza was then sent staff out to try the pies then compiled results. And, after creating such an exhaustive list of pizza joints across the nation, Connecticut captured six (yes, SIX) spots, including two in the top ten and the most coveted first place. To check out the full list, just click here.
Now, let’s look at the Connecticut pizzas that made the grade:
#71 Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza (for their Florida location, but they also have a location in Darien)
#68 Alforno, Old Saybrook
#27 Colony Pizza, Stamford (and other locations)
#11 Modern Apizza, New Haven
Italian Bomb (Bacon, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, pepper, and garlic)
#7 Sally’s Apizza, New Haven
