On the search for the best pizza in Connecticut brings us to Da Legna in New Haven.


If you want New Haven-style pizza it seems you may need to go to New Haven.

The crust here is the thickest crust I’ve ever seen on a New Haven ‘apizza’-style pizza.

The pizza, however, is excellent.

The dough is some of the best I’ve tasted in CT, and has an excellent char.

The sauce is very good and very acidic, which is cut by the crust.

The only downside would be the roasted peppers, which leave something to be desired.

Otherwise, excellent apizza.
