Like most of the world’s population, I love pizza.  So while I was visiting Connecticut, I decided to put together a few of the Best Pizza spots in Mystic, CT. I also wrote a Retail Therapy article about the OLDE Mystick Village, where Mango Wood Fired Pizza is located. See link below. 

Mystic Pizza

Mystic Pizza is well-known as the iconic establishment that gained fame by being featured in the 1988 movie of the same name. So, naturally it has become a tourist attraction for movie buffs. The famed eatery however remains popular among locals. The casual pizzeria serves up delicious pies with a variety of toppings.

While visiting CT, I stopped in with my sister and brother-in-law, and we shared a half veggie/half sausage pizza. It was quite tasty indeed…good crust and tons of cheese (see cover photo). In addition to building your own pie, the restaurant serves up some interesting specialty pies as well. Here is just a sampling: Seafood Delight (Shrimp, Clams, Scallops, Garlic, Oregano, Parsley), Mediterranean Delight (Artichoke hearts, Spinach, Tomatoes, Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper), and Texas Chicken (Chicken, Red Onion, Bacon, BBQ Sauce). Mystic Pizza is located in the main town of Mystic which is also a great place to shop. Mystic Pizza, 56 W Main St, Mystic, CT 06355; https://www.mysticpizzaoriginal.com
