    What in the world is "Conneticut style" pizza? And why would I want it? And an improvement over Papa John's is no improvement at all.

      "Connecticut style" pizza is the same as "New Haven" style pizza.
      Why would you want it ? - Because it is better than "Chicago-style" pizza

        Yeah, there's certainly a lot of people who have heard of Connecticut Style pizza versus those who have heard of Chicago or New York style. I, and most of America, certainly think New England states when thinking of pizza.

            We're kinda talking about pizza accessible to people living in the United States.

            New Haven style pizza is fairly well known, at least among pizza cognescenti. The prime difference is that it's cooked using a brick oven and coal (coal being cheaper and easier to get way back when in New Haven than hardwood). Obviously, New Haven, being a much smaller place than either New York or Chicago, is far less well known. I've only had it in situ a couple of times, and thought it was quite worthy. But then, I'm a Pizza agnostic.

          Had a red pie with meatballs, pepperoni and black olives. Good crust, decent flavor but rather salty. Not sure but may have been the meatballs.

          I'd buy again.

          Not perfect...but I was really pleased to find this place in Vista. I like it a lot... and you can get a good salad and good beer. I'd suggest telling them to take it easy on the char. Sometimes the pizza arrives burnt to a crisp.
