Connecticut Magazine has released a list of the state’s best eateries based on the culinary opinions of a panel of experts. Three Fairfield County locales made the list for the “Best Pizza” category.
Here are the Fairfield pizzerias that made the cut — or rather, the slice:
Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana : With locations in New Haven, Fairfield, Danbury, Manchester, West Hartford, Waterbury and Mohegan Sun, it’s safe to say that Frank Pepe Pizzeria has certainly earned its reputation as a Connecticut staple. Frank Pepe’s dates all the way back to 1925, and after nearly a century of pizza perfection, they’ve truly mastered the subtle art that is authentic Italian pizza. The Danbury location is at 59 Federal Road and the Fairfield location is at 238 State Street Ext. For more information, visit the website .
Letizia’s Pizza : Letizia’s Pizza in Norwalk serves up countless selections that are big on taste but not on your budget. With a number of traditional and eccentric toppings like eggplant, hot oil mushrooms and gorgonzola, you can craft the picture perfect pie with all of your favorite toppings. Letizia’s also offers a variety of unique preparation methods, like their signature Aunt Mary style, which features black pepper and garlic powder. For more information, visit the website .
Locali : Offering a wide variety of “Artisanal” pizzas as well as small plates, salads and Italian classics, Locali Pizza Bar and Kitchen, located at 32c Forest Street in New Canaan, has something for everyone.
