Does a bonus hot oil review
The hot oil pizza is "like a hot tamale in my mouth"? "It's too spicy for me..."
Thanks for posting. That’s pretty well done.pay attention -- it's 'ah-beets' (phonetically). vice pizza show, new haven, 2+ million views, have at it.
Just had a bacon & onion Zuppardi's at the Elks Club in Glastonbury. Probably the best frozen pizza I have had.Zuppardi’s Apizza putting taste of West Haven all over the map
>>Long one of the most popular pizza joints in both West Haven and Greater New Haven, Zuppardi’s — the second-oldest pizzeria in Connecticut after Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in New Haven — can now be found in grocery stores as far away as Texas, its owners say.<<
"Blows away" is much too strong imo. My sample size with Modern is easily 100 times greater than the other two because I am rarely able to time Pepe's and Sally's so that they are not a hassle, so it's Modern for us most of the time. The thing with Modern though is you have to specify "light mozz, well done."Sally's blows Modern away IMO. Sally's and Pepe's are comparable, though Pepe's can be inconsistent.

I agree that Sally's is the best of the three going solely by pizza quality, but unless the new owners have already made radical changes, the time/inconvenience factor is not enough to sway me there. Pepe's has underwhelmed me most frequently of the three.
But at the end of the day we're still quibbling at the margins of greatness to distinguish among them.
Except for Bufalina.
Rikos is a Colony spin off started up about 5 years ago in Stamford and Norwalk by a guy who baked at Colony for years. There was some legal action at the beginning, not sure it went anywhere b/c Rikos keeps expanding. Pretty much a Colony clone without a bar.CT wiping up the country on barstool. Never heard of this place. Another in the 8s
Pepe’s in Elmwood is okay but nothing special. Harry’s (both Harry’s) and Luna are better.I’ve never had the luxury of eating new haven pizza (need to soon), however, I have had Frank Pepe in West Hartford several times and it’s not that good- usually undercooked.
Two best I’ve had in CT are Harry’s pizza bishops corner in West Hartford and Colony Grill in Stamford.
There is a Frank Pepe’s in Danbury. It’s not the original on Wooster Street, but it’s real New Haven style Apizza.Sasso's in Torrington! Holy *&%#ing $#*!! The last time I was this pleasantly surprised by something Connecticut-related it was the 2014 tournament draw!
I am seriously shocked at how good this is – as good as Anthony's and IMO it's on par with the best any of the places on the shore have to offer (though obviously the crust is different – casual pizza fans don't understand that interior Connecticut crust is different from shoreline crust because of the yeast).
I can not recommend this enough:
Go grab a pie and then head up to visit @idahohusky at Great Falls.
If I had to get delivery, I'd go through Vroomservice and decide between Mangia Mangia or Michael Angelo's. I pretty much always get takeout so I'm not super familiar with delivery options. I'd only get Mangia Mangia if you're relatively close to the Brookfield line thoughA few of us will be in Danbury (oh well) during the college bowl games. Delivery suggestions? None of us are local to Dambury and cant scan 1200 pages.
Google says Sono. Any thoughts local huskies?
