Pizza wasn't invented in New Haven. It was perfected there.

There are only three pizza places in the world that matter...

Most everyone has a passion for pizza, but only New Haven lays claim to the Holy Trinity of pizza joints with Sally's, Pepe's, and Modern. They are not only a cornerstone of New Haven's Italian-American heritage but also the establishments that set the bar for this immediately recognizable comfort food. National polls agree: these are the pizzas by which all others are measured.

Filmmaker Gorman Bechard tells the story of the evolution of this modern day food staple, the only pizza that can really be called 'apizza.' From the landing of Italian immigrants on our shores, to the rusted wheels of Frank Pepe's bread cart, to the black charcoal on your very own fingertips, take a journey from old world Italy into present day New Haven.

Pizza, A Love Story is not just a tale of three restaurants but of three families that have the power to polarize, captivate, and delight. As we say, pizza wasn't invented in New Haven, it was perfected there. Just wait 'til you get a taste...
