According to this web site devoted to ranking "oddest foods" consumed by residents of various states, pizza with white clams -- or any other "gross" concoction appears to be a favorite in Connecticut.
Thrilllist.com said there are people who think pizza should always be minimalist. Then there are people who throw any and all types of crap on it, no matter how weird it is (for example, pineapples).
But both constituents can agree that Connecticut's "weird obsession with loading clams atop white-sauced pies seems a little suspect," the web site opined.
Clams are good. Pizza, obviously, is good. Yeah. When introducing clams -- naked, slippery, slug-like -- to almost any food, you'll end up with a white-hot mess.

"If you can get over the damn unpretty appearance and actually try one of these salty, savory, deeply flavorful pies, your taste buds will cover for your eyeballs," the report concluded.
