Nestled in the quaint town of Pomfret, Connecticut, Grigg Street Pizza aims to bring authentic New Haven-style pizza to eastern Connecticut. This new pizzeria is owned by lifelong Connecticut residents Bill and Stacy Rosati who missed the famous thin-crust, coal-fired pizzas after moving away from New Haven.
The couple decided to open Grigg Street Pizza in 2020 with the goal of replicating the iconic New Haven pizza style. The pizzeria sources high-quality ingredients and uses a specialized brick oven to cook their pizzas at extremely high temperatures. The crust is thin and crispy with a slight char - a signature of New Haven pizzas.
The menu offers both traditional and creative pizza options. You can't go wrong with the plain cheese or margherita pies. The white clam pizza, loaded with fresh clams, garlic, olive oil, and oregano, is another favorite. Customers also rave about the unique fig and prosciutto pizza topped with sweet fig jam, prosciutto, and arugula.
Grigg Street Pizza has quickly become a go-to spot in northeastern CT for excellent pizza in a comfortable, family-friendly setting. If you find yourself nearby, make sure to stop in for an authentic taste of New Haven-style pizza without the drive to New Haven! It's the perfect spot for both pizza aficionados and those looking to try this famous CT pizza for the first time.
