Jerry's Pizza

635 South Main St., Middletown, CT - (860) 346-5335
Jerry's "white Sicilian" is a wonder of the pizza world. Baked in a square pan, it has a crust that is medium-thick, rising up in glistening, oil-gilded golden puffs around the edge. Atop it is spread a finely chopped melange of garlic, anchovies, and fresh parsley, plus a spritz of oil and a dust of Parmesan. Pizza paradise!

Too bad there's no computer hardware that allows for cybersniffing.  The garlic-anchovy aroma of this white Sicilian pizza is dizzying.

As I walked in, this pepperoni and meatball pizza was coming out of the oven. What a good-looking pie. Note the typically Connecticut crust, verging on burnt at its high points. The staff told me that meatballs are a very popular option.

Pizza historians say that pizza Margherita -- the colors of the Italian flag -- was the original configuration. At its best, it is an elemental treasure made with slices of mozzarella rather than grated cheese. At Jerry's, it looks right but lacks character.

The interior of the new location. That's Jerry himself sitting at the table on the right of the photo. His head is in his hands because he is snoozing, although to me he looks sad. Perhaps because the pizza made by his progeny doesn't measure up?

The old Jerry's had little in the way of neighborhood charm. The new Jerry's continues that tradition, located in a small strip mall across the street from a Chevrolet dealer.
