They have weekly specials which come highly recommended, one of our favorites is peach & chong up in smoke made with smoked peach sauce, bacon lardon, honey goat cheese, pickled peaches, micro cabbage, peach vinaigrette spritz, and crispy garlic, yum!

5. Wrecktangle Pizza

Wrecktangle Pizza does a Detroit-style pizza, a thick, but light crust with a focaccia-like chew. The edges of crispy cheese are part of what makes this style of pizza making so delicious.

They make all their own dough, which once cooked in their wood-fired oven results in one of the best bases you will ever taste.

Served in a relaxed and informal setting, this is the ideal place to bring family or friends for a serious pizza treat. You’ll soon be a lifetime fan, as so many are.

7. Surly Brewing Co.

If you’re in the mood for a New Haven-style a’pizza, this brewery and taproom is all a hot spot for pizzas. They ferment their dough using yeast from their own house brewers and char it until pure perfection.
