Welcome to the New Haven Pizza Project, a blog run by two pizza-loving Yale University seniors who will be spending a full semester hunting down the most delicious New Haven-style pizza in and around the Elm City, a.k.a. New Haven, Connecticut.
Our plan? To visit a dozen of the most traditional local pizza places: not just Pepe’s and Sally’s, the inescapable giants of Wooster Street, but also lesser-known gems including Roseland Apizza and Zuppardi’s. Eating our way through mounds of chewy crust and cheesy “muzz” (that’s mozzarella for you non-New Haveners), we will rate each pizzeria and develop what may be the sole comprehensive guide to New Haven’s best pizza places.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy. If you’re at all like us, you might find yourself running out for a slice sometime soon, or even a whole pie.
