I have DREAMS about Colony. Whenever I go home and I take someone with me (ex-husband, last BF) I make them go. It’s a test.
The last BF knew about it bc he’s a pizza freak and had seen it on some show.
My wife (lifelong Pittsburgher) equates Colony pizza with the old Chef Boy-ar-dee pizza kits she remembers as a kid. This is the same woman who once took me to Beto's, so I discount her opinion.

Grand apizza, tolli's, john & Maria's, etc aren't on that national list and are all better
To you, sure. Again, IMHO, Colony is among best in the nation at what it does.

There are 100 spots on that list. IIRC, only three are taken by bar-style pizzas (Colony, Star Tavern, Lynwood Cafe). There are other styles (St. Louis cracker with provel, Ohio grandma, Old Forge, any Sicilian, Chicago deep dish) that I'd take off the list due to personal preference for thin crusts, but I can appreciate a list that's not 100 brick/coal oven Neapolitan style pizzas.

St Louis “pizza” is the worst possible thing.

Swiss cheese on a cracker.

Gag.Ugh.

#12 - Tomato Pie, Sally's Apizza (New Haven)

#13 - The Italian Bomb, Modern Apizza (New Haven)

#26 - Hot Oil Bar Pie, Colony Grill (Stamford)

#57 - Plain Pie, Ernie's Pizzeria (New Haven)

#64 - Plain Pie, Roseland Apizza (Derby)

Its absolutely insane that we comprise 1/10th of the best pizzas in the country in our small state.. Thing is I can name a bunch as good as some of the stuff mentioned there.

But not Buffalina. I sold my kneepads to 8893. :)

I can't remember--have you been?

It wouldn't shock me if it wasn't your style.
Once eating there. once to go. has to be over 5 years now.

It was great.

My reference was you sing enough of its praises where I dont need to carry that torch.

Tre Carni would be my recommendation from their regular menu; Maiale and Pepita are my favorites on their Fall menu. I note that their special tonight is a Clam Pizza, with parsley oil, grated parm and bacon.

We already have dinner planned, but now I'm debating grabbing one of those as an app.

Yes Antico is good as is the pizza place in a Krog Street market, Veruni Napoli; ever been there?

I will say that pizza in Atlanta is better than pizza in DC; THAT is how awful DC pizza is.
nope.

Ive been to Antico at the behest of family living there who wanted Pizza. But I want everything else when Im down there except Pizza.

If you talk to pretty much everyone who grew up in Chicago they'll tell you Chicago pizza is thin crust pizza, it's that cracker thin pizza and it's not good.

I don't know. I guess a white clam pie is weird in one regard....but I just can't wrap my head around a mashed potato pizza making any top ten lists.

You gotta try it. And I recommend it as a red pie, with mashed potato and bacon. At BAR. And you have to eat it there; their pizza is the thinnest and travels less well than any others in my experience.

you really have to try it. Its damn good. And Im the same way. mashed potatoes remind me of Thanksgiving, thus I have zero use for them.

Yup. We get Bar Pizza as part of our Rider when we play on Crown St. They bring it the one block walk from Bar to the club in the box and it is already pretty much ruined.

Don’t blame you at all.

Have you been to Krog Street market in general? It’s pretty cool. A smaller, totally food focused version of Ponce City Market.

Meh, DC has gotten better. Two Amys, Pete's New Haven Style, Pizzeria Paradiso, there is a lot more happening foodwise/pizza-wise in DC than even ten years ago. It's become a real food town... finally.

It really has, except for pizza.

I’ve tried all the places listed and they are meh at best. (Ps We the Pizza is probably the best, and you didn’t even list it! Haha).

That's where we had pizza when we were there with the family a few summers ago. It was decent. Cool place; I liked the concept and they did a cranking business.

I was at Bar once with some people and it was towards the end of the night and some guy was walking by our table with a gigantic pizza. He stopped and said, I can't find whoever ordered this, do you want it? Um, yes please.

I've been out of the NH pizza game for a long time but for me it was Sally's, Pepe's, Modern, Bar.
