Hi everyone. I am from CT (born and raised and have lived here all of my life) and am really enjoying this thread and the grinder thread by Ketteract. I was raised in the Bpt.-Stratford area (*we ALWAYS call pizza Ah-beetz in Bpt.*) and then we moved to Shelton-Derby area so am familiar with Roseland as well as New Haven pizza. I worked in New Haven for several years and we often ordered Zuppardis or Modern. I have not tried BAR yet but  have had all of the A-Listers mentioned with that one exception.
 
We lived in Middletown for a while and found Krust and Mondo to be acceptable and a little take out place in Durham called Carmines Pizza.   I personally think this pizza is the closest to New Haven in the Middletown area.
 
Does anyone know of a pizza place in CT that uses scammorza cheese on their pizza? I grew up with this cheese on our ah-beetz and remember the tanginess being fantastic. It was called "scamozz" because I think they mixed it with mozzarella. Does anyone besides me remember this cheese on their pie? 
 
Thanks for a great thread!

Welcome to Roadfood JoyB. Jerry's on Pequonnock Street always used "scamotz" (scamorza). Scamotz seems to be the standard in Bridgeport.

Thank you. There was a place on Park Ave. near Olive St. that we used to get ours from (grew up on Laurel Ave near the Klein Memorial Auditorium) that was so delicious. I can't remember the name but it was what I searched for flavor wise my whole life and really never found again. There was a place in Farmington called Rossini's Pizza that came closest but that place became Joey Garlics and now it is some other name. 
 
I remember the crust being chewy and a little burnt around the edges. When I was a kid, I would avoid the burnt edge but now that I am much wiser (and a tad older) I know that is flavor that I adore. My dad would come home on a Friday night with a large "scamotes" and sausage and I was in heaven. 
 
Thanks for the welcome! Looking forward to interacting with all of you.
