Here we highlight the best pizza in Connecticut. 2022 edition!
We’ve traveled the state; North, South, East, West.
Tried as many as we can.
Put in the miles.
Put on the pounds.
It’s time for the best pizza in Connecticut!
#5: Colony Grill, Stamford
Address: 172 Myrtle Ave, Stamford, CT 06902
With it’s chewy, ultra-thin crust; it’s charred cheese edges; it’s hot oil, this pizza is one of the best in CT.

What happens next is we get into a lot of New Haven pizzas.
#4: Bar, New Haven
Address: 254 Crown St, New Haven, CT 06511
Cracker-thin crust, excellent toppings (only get 1 or 2 at most), and near perfect cooking make this a serious pizza.
#3: Modern Apizza; New Haven
Address: 874 State St, New Haven, CT 06511
This is the most perfect crust in CT. Toppings and sauce are all that’s holding this pizza back.
#2: Da Legna; New Haven
Address: 687 State St, New Haven, CT 06511
Thicker crust that’s perfectly charred. Excellent cheese and acidic sauce. Solid toppings. This one is hard to beat!
Now before we get to the best pizza in Connecticut, there are a lot of honorable mentions that nearly made the list:
Little City in Avon.
Brick & Basil in Norwich.
Zuppardi’s in New Haven.
E&D Pizza Company in Avon.
Sorella in Hartford.
All make a very solid pizza.
If you are near those places, they are definitely worth a try.
Now on to the winner…
#1: Frank Pepe’s; New Haven and Multiple Locations
Address: 157 Wooster Street, New Haven, CT 06511
There are multiple locations to this restaurant, and all are good.
But the New Haven location?
That’s where to go.
The pizza tastes just a little bit better.
It was always going to be you, Pepe’s.
Can’t miss the Roasted Peppers.
The Rating: (New Haven Location; take off half a point at the outposts)
