“You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I’m not hungry enough to eat six”. Yogi Berra.
Pizza is one of this best inventions ever to be brought into this world (next to baked beans of course.) As one of the final stops on our food trip we traveled two pizzeria’s- Zuppardi’s Apizza in West Haven and The Spot in New Haven. When we arrived at Zuppardi’s we were quickly greeted by the owner and her whole family. After her quick speech we were brought piping hot pizzas dripping with creamy mozzarella and smooth tomato sauce with crisp bottoms covered in spicy sausage and hot, yummy hot peppers. We later were brought fresh shucked clam pie (I don’t love clams but this was just hard to resist), the clams were silky and delicious and the pizza was again crispy on the bottom.
The Pizza was quite good but didn’t nearly compare to The Spot in New Haven. The Spot reserved the whole restaurant for our tour group and freshly made every single pie. Right after we were seated, tables were lined with whole pies. When we got up, we went straight for the juicy, fresh, heirloom tomato pizza with fabulous cheese and a toothsome, slightly burned bottom. We also sampled- spicy peperoni, amazing cheese, and sausage pies. None of those pizzas compared to the salty, juice filled salami pizza (I had about 4 slices of it). The pizza overall at both places were very delicious. Although they were both very enjoyable, I would still chose Sally’s Pizza in New Haven over them in a heart beat.
Zuppardi’s- ZZZZ- 4 Z’s- Great.
The Spot- ZZZZV- 4 1/2 Z’s- Awesome.
You know they do a lot of business if there are this many boxes!
