Second-best slices? Food & Wine's ranking of best pizza states puts CT in 2nd place
Food & Wine recently published its 10 best pizza states in America - and Connecticut came in second.
It gave New Jersey the No. 1 spot for 2021, citing that some of the best pizza can be found in Jersey City. It said New Jersey is "one in an elite group remaining true to their heritage, through long periods of time when others were too busy crashing ahead into the future to care about theirs."
Coming in at number 2 for best pizza was Connecticut.
It said, "No state wields quite so much clout out of such a concentrated pool of talent, centered in New Haven, which has been one of America's most important pizza cities for as long as there has been pizza in America." It also pointed out the unbelievably thin bar pies at the Colony Grill in Stamford, which has been around since the end of the Great Depression.
New York pizza came in third. The article said that there has always been very good pizza in the Empire State - and most likely always will be, but "a couple of decades into the complete remake of American food, and after years of rising rents, we find ourselves at a crossroads."
Illinois, Michigan, California, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio and Missouri rounded out the top 10 pizza states.
