Re: Ok guys, where do you get your pizza in CT?
Very good article from the Register on Pepe's vs Sally's.
Also,a little bit of history,Sal Consiglio(Sallys) was the nephew of Frank Pepe who split of from the family business sometime in the late 30s. Pepe's is often credited as being the birthplace of the American Pizza.

Thanks for that article. I've read another, but that article is very good. For those considering traveling from afar to try, let me tell you, it IS worth it, IMHO. I haven't been to Sally's, only Frank Pepe's, and I was a little bewildered by the wait. Though having had waited in line for two and a half hours to eat at the House of Nanking in San Fransisco, I resigned to the idea that it would be worth it. I had no idea how true that was.
The pizza arrives (finally) in an on shape, not the perfect cookie cutter versions you see from Dominoes, and trust me, the difference is so far it isn't funny. Places like Dominoes make puffy, doughy crusts of goo. A Wooster street pie is a very thin, crispy thing that is infinitely more satisfying. Sure, I won't turn down a Domino's pizza, heck, I used to work for them! But the difference is like Kindergarten and MIT if you will. Domino's isn't bad, it's just that Pepe's is that good, err, grand, if you will.
I don't know if there are any non New Englanders reading this, but if so, certainly make the trip. There is plenty to see and do in CT, MA, and RI (Southern NE).
You could spend an easy afternoon at the Wadsworth Anteneum. Visit the Peabody Museum at Yale University and marvel at dinos all day!
I used to go there on my birthday as a kid ever year, and what a thrill it was.
There is much to do, and I haven't lived in CT since I was, oh, 18 (I'm 49)!
