Uhhh, people, there's a reason NY pizza is leading by a landslide, lol. The "New haven" pizza has probably been mostly CT locals who voted for that kind.

actually its probably because more people have had NY Pizza and haven't tried CT pizza. Come on, the whole state is only 3 million people and they have 7,000 indy pizza places.

Tell more about your experiences with Sally's/Pepe's/Modern.

I've had pizza in the following US Cities:
Atlanta- Uncle Vito's?
New Orleans - recommend Mark Twain's highly
Baton Rouge - Rotolo's
Huntsville - Tortora's is fantastic
Miami
Tampa
Arlington, VA - near Ballston mall _ Go Caps!
Washington DC- might have been Alexandria
Baltimore
Ellicott City - Roma (i think)
Cincinnati - La Rosa's - good sauce
Chicago - Lou Malnati's and Geno's
New Haven - Amazing place , Modern, Sally's, Geno's and more
Farmington, CT - Naples or Olees
Hartford - too many to mention
Haddam, CT - Haddam Pizza - solid effort
New London, CT - I think the place was Al Forno, pretty good
Willington, CT - potato pie is impressive
Boston - Pizzaria Reggina is very good
Cape Cod
Upper Vermont - where John LeClair is from
Long Island (Port Jeff) - Pizzaria Pizzaria
Brooklyn - Grimadli's
Manhattan - John's, Ray's, Famous Ray's. Original Famous Ray's. Famous Original Ray's, and a couple of others.
Seattle
Phoenix
Denver - also Bojo's in the hills
Houston - Panjo's pizza back in the 70's & 80's was amazing
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Dallas
St Louis - this is not good. Cracker with sauce, and weak toppings. Provel?
Columbus see St Louis

I think that covers the US, now for Europe:

London
Amsterdam - across the street from a "Coffee shop", some of the funniest people watching ever
Utrecht - Grotto on the canals is fantastic.
Gorinchem- small town, great pizza
Brussels- near St Catherine's square
Hamburg-
Frankfurt-
Odense (Denmark) - not good
Roma - Capitano's in Ostia, good stuff
Venice
Florence- about two blocks from St Mark's (its Mark there right?)
Perugia
and some place near the Alps where Pope JP 2 went
Lugano, Switzerland
Paris - place near the Bastille was awesome


I get around and am working on a trip to Naples in the next year.

Anyway,

Mark Twain is my favorite - being from New Orleans, the sauce has something extra. Great crust, toppings, etc.

Modern Apizza in New Haven - fantastic pizza, but with better service than Pepe's or Sally's.

Tortora's Pizza in Huntsville, AL - when I moved here I was figuring I would lose weight as the pizza was pretty bad. Might as well eat salad... but then I found Tortora's and its bellisima! The head chef is on the national pizza team, Joe Carlucci, and they do a great job. Never thought I'd have New Haven style pizza in Huntsville.

Euro pies: The one by the Bastille stands out, Capitano's in Ostia (Rome) was great - I had it twice in one day, that's how great.

Oh, I had pizza in San Pedro Sula, Honduras back in 1978 - place was called Napoli. Excellent, I'm sure its gone by now.

And you really couldn't be more wrong. There are almost no similarity. The crust is different, the cheese is different, the sauce is different, the thickness is different, the consistency is different, the ingredient ratios are different -- hell, even the shape is different as one of notable characteristics of New Haven-style is its irregular shape.
