Default About 1975 Hartford Pizza

Does anyone remember this type of pizza that was sauce and cheese only cut into squares. My father use to buy it by the box full. The place is no longer there. It must have left about the same time the Chicken Coop left.

Does anyone know where I can buy this pizza again.
Thank you,
Peg

A lot of pizza places cut their pizza into squares in the Hartford area. It is mostly thick crust Greek style pizza. Any idea where the place was located? I am not sure how many places around are that old but it may still be here. Jay

I know what you are talking about...it's not really pizza but similar in "look and taste". Generally served cold and purchased from a bakery only on weekends.

We used to get it on the weekends in Waterbury and when I moved back to Hartford an Italian friend used to pick some up on Franklin ave, but I'm not sure where. I would call around some of the bakeries in Hartford and ask.

Edit: I found a pic that looks similar to what I'm talking about:

Ugh. This is the type of pizza we were served at school lunch- a soggy dough base with a slab of cheese on top. I always thought that it was inspired by Boston north end pizza, which is cut in squares and has a doughier crust.

No way! I know what you're thinking of, and that's more like store bought Ellios. But this stuff is more like a foccacia bread "pizza style" than anything else. Bread like dough, fresh sauce and sometimes shredded mozz sometimes not.

There was a bakery on East Main Street in Waterbury that made it fresh and on little 6" "round" pieces of bread and it was gooooood. And yes it came in a white 12" square bakery "box" with the slices stacked top of each other and not a pizza box.

Dang, now I want some.

Edit: I called my friend, he got it from South End Bakery on Franklin Ave.

Some places will have it in the cases on weekends like this:

Mozzicato does pizza? Hmm. I'm not complaining if they do, but the times I've been to the bakery I havn't seen it - only pastries, cakes etc. I'll have to check it out again.

I know I have seen a few bakeries around Hartford that had pizza in addition to baked goods. Chimirri's in the Wethersfield Shopping Center offers it too. I thought it was a bit strange to have it in a bakery too but it seems to be common in this area. I don't think I ever saw it in the bakeries in the Bridgeport area. Jay
