Taste of New Haven started this petition to Connecticut Legislators

Pizza should be the Connecticut State Food. We, the people of Connecticut, and those born, raised, living, working, schooling, now, in the past or in the future, see pizza as a source of pride and appreciation for residents and businesses in the state and as an economic driver for the restaurant, pizzeria and tourism industry. These points stand true:

1.       Connecticut has some of the highest rated pizzerias in the United States.

2.       Connecticut has some of the oldest pizzerias in the United States.

3.       Connecticut has one of the largest number of pizzerias per capita in the United States.

4.       Connecticut has the most independently owned pizzerias in the United States.

5.       Connecticut’s restaurants make $8.2 billion in sales and add 160,000 jobs annually.

6.       Connecticut has its own word for pizza, “APIZZA” pronounced ‘ah-beets’.

7.       The pizza box, pizza vending machine, home pizza making set and white clam pizza were first created and invented in Connecticut.

8.       New Haven Style Pizza is internationally recognized.

9.       Taste of New Haven runs multiple pizza tours in New Haven.

10.   The documentary film, Pizza, a love story, is based on New Haven pizzerias.

11.   The book, Pizza in New Haven, is based on New Haven pizza history.

By signing this petition you will help us show Connecticut Legislators that there is popular support for making pizza our state food. As it stands Connecticut does not have a state food and no other state lists pizza as a state food. Your inclusion and information will help document and promote this action which we aim to accomplish in 2021.
