Stamford, CT Pizza Roundup

Which pizza packs the biggest punch?

Having been born and raised in Stamford, I’ve had the pleasure of eating some of the most delicious pizza east of New York City. From Italian to Greek-inspired pies, let’s just say there’s no shortage of variety. However, long-time residents of Stamford are just as picky about their pizza as Southerners are about their fried chicken, which begs the question — which pizza pie packs the biggest punch in the “City that Works?”

Remo’s Brick Oven Pizza

Since 2007, Remo’s Brick Oven Pizza has been serving up authentic Italian pizza. Using only the freshest vegetables, including tomatoes from California, and the best cheeses, Remo’s certainly takes the “pie” (pun intended). With an extensive menu of gourmet and brick oven pizzas, Remo’s has something for everyone. Its Parma napoletana-style pizza, piled high with hand tossed zesty arugula with shavings of fresh parmigiano, prosciutto and white beans, is sinful, while its Chicken Parm pie is perfect for the kids. While it may be hard, make sure you leave room from dessert because the Tiramisu is to-die-for.

Colony Grill

Reigning “Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut” champion and New York Magazine’s “101 Awesome American Pies (And Slices)," Colony Grill knows a thing or two about making first-rate pizza. After all, it’s the only thing on the menu besides soft drinks and beer. With locations in Stamford, Fairfield and Milford, Colony Grill is famously known for its thin-crust pizza. Diners can choose from an array of toppings including sausage, onions, bacon, and my ultimate favorite the signature hot oil with just the right amount of kick.

Hope Pizza

Hope Pizza is the quintessential neighborhood pizza place, but with a twist. While the restaurant has perfected all of the Greek staples — including salads, souvlaki and gyros — its Greek-inspired pizza is the menu’s shining star. Pan baked at 600 degrees in a standard oven, the pizza’s thick, crunchy crust and gooey, mouth-watering cheese is out of this world. My personal favorite is Hope’s rendition of the salad pizza. Generously topped with a bounty of fresh veggies, crisp lettuce and its famous house dressing, the salad pizza is sure to please even the most stubborn meat lovers.

Coalhouse Pizza

New kid on the block, Coalhouse Pizza has quickly become one of Stamford’s favorite pizza places. Its unique take on pizza has made it the go-to Friday night hot spot. The pizzas are prepared with Coalhouses’ homemade marinara sauce and very own preservative-free, low sodium fresh mozzarella baked in a coal-fired oven for a distinctive taste. While it may be hard to choose, you have to try the “Favorite Things,” a delicious pie topped with mozzarella, ricotta cheese, rosemary, prosciutto and garlic pesto or the “Lucille” pilled high with tomato sauce, mozzarella, prime beef, and while truffle oil.
