Last week, CT Food Lovers challenged pizza fans everywhere with this request: “Love New Haven Pizza??? We’re counting on you to help us decide who has the best pie in all of New Haven! Leave a comment and tag your favorite pizza below. ”
It was a close race, but our fans and supporters came out. They posted up and posted all over CT Food Lover’s Instagram page, clinching us the coveted title of Winner of the Pizza Wars. In celebration and recognition, WTNH invited owners, Alexa and Andrew onto the show to make a pizza and talk about One6Three The Pizza Joint. Andrew made The Joint’s infamous Sweet and Salami ( hand crushed tomatoes sauce, Genoa salami, fresh mozzarella, hot cherry peppers, and a drizzle of honey) and gabbed with the ladies about him and Alexa’s upcoming weekend wedding.
He couldn’t have left before paying homage to the New Haven Pizza Gods, Sally’s, Pepe’s, Modern, and Bar. The hosts of Good Morning Connecticut at Nine asked him, “So what’s the secret.” The secret is competing with the best, learning from the best, respecting the best, and earning your place in the pecking order one great pizza at a time.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted! If you’ve eaten here before, come in and celebrate with some pizza! Bring in a six pack and hang out with us. If you haven’t tried us before, now is a perfect time to come in, cozy up to the fire, and try our award-winning pie! (But not this weekend (10/13-10/15), the bosses are getting hitched!)
