Connecticut Magazine Ranks Best Pizza in State

Pizza from Pepe's Pizza
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."
