Frank Pepe's Pizza-CT

Having heard the rave reviews of New Haven style pizza and reading about the decades-long rivalry between Pepe's and Sally's I new I had to check it out. I like to try local favorites when I travel but I love thick gooey crust style pizza. Pepe's originated the New Haven-style thin-crust apizza (closely related to Neapolitan-style Italian pizza) which he baked in a coal-fired brick oven. The quality of the pizza was good, and trying clam pizza was unique (and tasty!). I also loved the old-school, no frills baking sheet the pizza was served on. Overall I'm glad I made the trip to experience the historic and local character, but having tried it once I would not hurry back to dine again. Expect to wait inline at least 15-60mins. Also no slices only whole pies.

Clam pie was really great. Lots of whole clams and garlic.
