Connecticut Magazine Ranks Best Pizza in State



    How to Control Your Devices (So They Don't Control You)
    Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

    What's your favorite pizza joint? Connecticut Magazine has compiled a list of the state's top pizza places – and those that will soon have their own slice of history.

    There's no numerical system here. Instead, restaurants are ranked in categories: "Legends" are pizza royalty (no surprise that many are located in New Haven) and "Legends in the Making" comprise up-and-coming pizza sensations.

    There are also "Beer Bar Pizzas," "Unusual Places" and "Best of the Rest."
