Help--Pizza near Mystic, CT Tue, 04/26/05 9:09 PM (permalink)
I really want to have a New Haven style pizza (never had one). However, I'm in Mystic,CT for three days in June with limited time to drive elsewhere. Within a half hour drive, what's the closet to great thin-crust clam pizza I can find? btw I won't miss going to the Sea Swirl, Kitchen Little and Seahorse Tavern--(pass on Abbott's). Thanks for any advise.

    Obviously when walking through downtown, you'll see Mystic Pizza. Its taste certainly doesn't warrant a movie, but the pie was OK, better than I expected. I'd drive the full hour to New Haven, Pepe's clam pie is CERTAINLY worth it! But check out this site for others, Connecticut is the Stern's home turf, they know it inside-out.

    What's wrong with Abbott's?

      My advice - make the time and go to Pepe's, I have stood in line with people from NY, Mass and RI. If you cannot make the time, The Recovery Room in New London make a darn good pizza. I haven't had a clam pie but have had the sausage with red and yellow peppers - it is very good!

        I can't think of any thin crust places in the Mystic area, but I could be wrong. You might try the Mystic&More website, which covers the whole SE Connecticut area,for more info.

        If you're willing to settle for a Greek style pie, you won't find any better than Angie's, on Route 1 across from the Mystic train station. Really excellent pizza and grinders, plus a full menu and bar. Highly recommended. Afterwards, you can walk to Sea Swirl for a soft serve cone.

          I was there a while back, and was up for a drive to New HAven, but my companions wanted to stay local. Mystic pizza was not too bad, but quite different from New Haven offerings. Not pizza, but if you'll be eating breakfast, but Kitchen Little is a place I never like to pass without stopping!

            The recovery room is probably the closest you'll get to New Haven style without going to New Haven. I have heard that Tuscany in the Mohegan Sun Casino also has good pizza - also not really New Have Style. It's about 25 minutes from mystic.

              thanks for the info--btw, nothing wrong with Abbott's--with limited non-business dinner nights available, I really like Seahorse Tavern--so, my comment should have merely been a preference. Tried Mystic Pizza last trip, and didn't care for it. I'm beginning to think that the drive to New Haven is worth it--but an hour to and from makes for a late night!

                The state run tourists booths in the rest stops on CT I-95 have lists of the great pizza parlors in various CT regions. Maybe they are on a web site too!!!

                  If you are looking for good New Haven style pizza and don't want to travel too far from Mystic then check out The Red Tomato in Madison, CT. It's about 35 minutes from Mystic travelling 95S. They have the famous "clam pizza" and also an excellent chicken. All their pizzas are think crust and are delicious. It's one of my family's favorites without having to go into New Haven.
