Modern Apizza
Tomato and Mootz Pie

Modern was our first foray into New Haven pizza when we moved here, and I thought I'd found the runner up to Totonno’s in Coney Island. (If you’re a pizza fanatic who’s never been to James Beard-winning Totonno’s, that’s just unforgivable). I still think Modern is the king of crust: charred, never burnt, irregularly shaped and flavorful. The place is not far off the beaten path of Worcester Street, but still boasts a line most days. It’s straight-up tomato and mootz for me here, but regulars devour the Italian Bomb (Sausage, Bacon, Pepperoni, Mushroom, Onion, Pepper & Garlic). After Zuppardi’s pizza, Modern’s clam pizza was a bit of a disappointment. Good to know: There is a small parking lot next door.
