Agreed............
New Haven > Chi Town IMO.
It just doesn't get the amount of press Chi Pizza does.

Just looking at those pics of CT pizza makes me want to hurl my guts out. Part of the overall pizza package is physical appearance, something New Haven-style fails miserably at. It looks like someone cooked some dead dog a$$, threw some spoiled goat cheese on it, then cooked it too long.

That is funny; that is how I react when I see a Chicago Style hot dog.

Chicago pizza is the best, hands down. Although, Fratelli's in Irving (DFW area in Texas) has some of the best pizza I've ever had. And we have transplants from Chicago and New York that will attest to that fact.

When you have a metropolitan area of 6.5 million people, as in DFW, invariably you will have some real "foodies" that are transplanted. Those transplants have made the DFW area one GREAT place to eat!

Why does everyone keep mentioning Chicago? I believe this thread meant to exclude NYC and Chicago. We all know that Chi-Town and NYC have great pizza, but what other cities have great pizza?
I'll say: Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore. I've heard of New Haven's legendary Pizza, so Connecticut gets a nod; I've also heard Providence has great Pizza; NJ, Philly and Pittsburgh I include because of the large Italian populations (Also Pittsburgh because I get great pizza here all the time); Baltimore because I've read that they have very good Italian food.

That's OK--let them exclude New York and Chicago. Those of us who live there know better.
