On the search for the best pizza in Connecticut brings us to Brick & Basil Wood Fired Pizza Co in Yantic.
The first words out of your mouth when you bite into this pizza, from the fixed food truck, should be “damn”.
The crust is excellent, and there is a lot going on.
First, the pizza itself has a heavy garlic taste, so be ready for that.
The crust has this nice cornmeal component to it, adding to a general crispiness.
And the toppings are good too.
But as you eat the whole thing starts to get a bit busy.
It’s hard to keep track of all the flavors.
When you try to isolate the cheese you see it is a little flavorless, which is likely why there are herbs, basil, and spices strewn throughout.
Still, the whole experience is very nice, and the pizza overall is super solid.
