The 2nd Annual Great Pizza TakeOut Debate!!

Warning: Graphic Images of 

New Haven Apizza. 

Readers are urged to use discretion. 

2017 Winner Ernie's Pizzeria

In 1638, when Puritans founded New Haven, little did they know 
that it would become 
home to so many firsts.

First Planned City
Laid out in 9 Squares

1791 and having fun

New Haven was instrumental in the 
Revolution supplying guns 
made in the city, men and supplies.

During the Siege of Boston, N'avener's 
dropped everything to repel the British.

Our own General Wooster, who was a hero
in the French and Indian wars,
 helped lead the charge.

Because of all the manufacturing that took place in the City, many Italian immigrants came to 
work in the factories from around Naples.

Many from the town of Amalfi. 
Some of those brought honed cooking 
skills, virtually unknown to most Americans, to service the hungry workers.

In 1925, Frank Pepe opened a bakery
and began making what they called ah-beets.

Commonly know in these parts as Apizza.

First pizza? I doubt it, but hands down #1
pizza in the USA

Making Pies for over 93 years!!

Sally's Tomato and Pepe's top Clam pie!

So when it comes to pizza in the 
State of Connecticut 
everyone has their favorite.

In fact, one Lifetime Wooster Squarian,
Colin Caplan just wrote the Book
on New Haven Pizza!

Check out Colin's book on Amazon

And of course, we can be

at tad bit obnoxious.

Found on the "internet"

So last year we decided, Why not have a contest to see what is people's favorite TakeOut Pizza joint.

You know what I'm talking about.
The number your 
phone knows by megabit.

Say Ahhh!

That pizza place that knows 
you by what you order 
and treats you like family.

Fresh Tomato pie.

They cook it to your perfection.

Caution: The Bacon and Mashed Potato
Pie at BAR is more delicious than it looks!

You know exactly how long it takes 
for the pie to be cooked and you are there as it comes out of the oven.

Abate's on Wooster Street

Or to be safe, you order your pie
and share a beer 
with the owner as he/she cooks it.


So, where is 
New Haven's best
