Connecticut Pizzas On 'Must Try Before You Die' List

At this point, it'd be a shock not to see a best-of pizza list without at least one New Haven entry. But here's another, from BuzzFeed, featuring "18 Pizza Joints You Must Try Before You Die" - with two from the Elm City.

"Frank Pepe's is a New Haven institution, credited with the invention of the New Haven-style white clam pizza pie, which is delicious in its simplicity: no mozzarella, just plain pie, with a few fresh ingredients (white clams, garlic, oregano, olive oil, and some grated cheese)," Kristin Chirico writes of the Wooster Street landmark. Of BAR on Crown Street, she references its signature mashed potato-and-bacon combination and the house-brewed beer.

The New Haven classics join a list of spots across the country known for generations of service, national fame and/unusual flavor profiles, including Los Angeles' Pizzeria Mozza and Phoenix's Pizzeria Bianco.
