Jordan's Furniture on Long Wharf in New Haven may have their indoor zipline course, but the new Jordan's Furniture that will be built inside the old Lord & Taylor space at Farmington's Westfarms Mall will feature a Sally's Apizza.

Sally's, like Pepe's claim to fame, is their thin, crispy, semi-burnt, indescribably savory crust, with just the right amount of acidic red tomato sauce. Unlike their rival, Sally's Apizza also offers food that you'd never find at Pepe's, like meatballs and sauce served on a hot skillet, chicken wings, chicken and eggplant Parmesan, and rigatoni vodka.

I've been to all the greats of New Haven pizza, and there have been years where I've preferred Sally's to Pepe's, or Zuppardi's over Modern and Roseland. What's consistent about them all is that every pie is carefully crafted by owners at the top of their social media buzz, we win anyway Connecticut.
