Frank Pepe Makes National List for Best Pizza in Connecticut

    The rankings are in.

    We are serious about our pizza in Connecticut and the "Daily Meal" has weighed in on where they think the best pizza in the state comes from.

    They have given the honor to Frank Pepe Pizzeria Naploletana and called it a “checklist destination” to “discuss the topic of America's best pizza with any authority.” 

    They also put the spotlight on the clam pizza.

    The ranking looked at pizza places across the country with a menu that is either made entirely of pizza or has at least a section dedicated it. The list included more than 800 pizzerias nationwide, which were then narrowed down by a “panel of culinary authorities” who voted for their favorite.

    There are nine Pepe’s locations; New Haven, Manchester, West Hartford, Danbury, Waterbury, Fairfield and at Mohegan Sun, in Connecticut; Yonkers, New York; and Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

    Santarpio’s Pizza in Boston is the best pizza in Massachusetts, according to The Daily Meal and Di Fara in Brooklyn won the top spot in New York. 

    Daily Mail gives Al Forno in Providence the honor of the best pizza in Rhode Island.
