One of the best New Haven style pizzas you’ll ever have. Plus great beer. Unbeatable.

Half pepperoni and half cheese…was very good and different. Very thin, not much cheese but still good.

Final day of my Connecticut pizza run. Was in Stamford, then Stratford/Bridgeport/Fairfield. I've been driving my friend out here. Got this pie right after they opened…great stuff here. First, it was a rustic looking pie. I have pics of the full pie, which was misshapen. But it's to such a point I think your average person would think it looked *bad*. And I think that's a thing with New Haven style apizza: The char and rusticness that Pizzaholics appreciate about it, the average person may not. But on to the apizza… So the crust was charred just as much as I like it. It's like a pita almost, as thin as Lucali, light, and yet not crunchy cracker-like that I don't like about bar pie style crust. It's a great crust, if that's up your alley. It's one of the great ways to do this crust. This had no puffy cornicione. I feel like some people use “tangy” as if that's the only descriptor or thing to look for in the taste of a sauce. That said, it's the perfect word to describe the taste here. Sauce don't need garlic, oregano, basil, or even salt (in some cases) if the natural flavor of the tomatoes are good. I doubt this sauce has any of that besides salt, maybe. That speaks well of it. Mozz, light amount of mozzarella. The cheese to sauce ratio is well balanced and up my alley. I think anyone on a hungry day could down a small pie.Really a great pie all around. If you're from out of state, it should be on your list if you're in the area. I almost went to Salerno’s Apizza initially but they were on vacation. This is definitely a young under 40, Brewery type vibe as opposed to old school Italian vibe of Salerno’s Appiza in Stratford. If you're from this area though, this is just *one* of the best spots for pizza nearby from your options of bar pie, Greek, New York style, a couple other apizza spots, and New Haven is only 30 minutes away.

Super Cool Vibe. Factory atmosphere with great brews and pours BUT let’s talk pizza. The pizza is great but it feels like they are trying to be Frank Pepe’. And in that regard they fall just alittle short. Nether the less this is a great place to hang out, have some drinks and enjoy really good pizza.

Cheese pizza, 5:40pm on a Saturday, $11.81 Pros: Thin and delicious bar pie with a fantastic charred crunchy crust. Adequately sauced, fair price Cons: Little bit softer than I've had at Colony and Riko's in Stamford but still near them in taste and quality Verdict: It's a winner, put it in the books. Hard to imagine it gets much better than this in Bridgeport

The pizza was the thinnest I ever had. It flopped to much and the sauce was a little sweet. I would have given it a 7.1 but the guy making the pizza dropped the score even more. I had washed my hands in the restroom and there weren't any paper towels so I asked at the pizza counter. The guy making the pizza told me no even though there were several rolls of paper towels at the counter and that I should go ask a server. A server who over heard this offered me the napkins.

No grease drip, no flop, great tang in the sauce. Really good crisp. Cheese/sauce ratio was good

undercarriage was presidential-quality, and flavors were off the charts.

Square slice. Not sure this is a fair review but it's the only time I've been. Might be higher in a different scenario. Good pie.

BAR’s wannabe little brother. still very good. coal fired, crispy, floppy (because of the way it’s cut). only gripe is the amount of flour underneath.

Plain cheese pizza is a solid 7.8, but the Brewmaster pizza is out of this world! Overall delicious pizza and great atmosphere. 8.2
