Frank Pepe’s Pizza Napoletana – New Haven Connecticut
As many of my readers know, I am on the ultimate quest for the best pizza in the entire world. One of the pizzerias that I have heard of time and time again as quite possibly the best, is Frank Pepe’s Pizza Napoletana in New Haven. I finally made it to the east coast and there was no way I was going to be so close to this famed “Clam Pie” and not get my fair share.
As you can see from the photo’s I did make it, and did all the hype let me down?? Heck no. This place was fantastic. The salad was basic, the wine was cheap, but the pizza was world class. The snap of the dough, the cheese, the sauce, the old school coal fired oven. I am not sure what makes this so good, but this experience was religious. I wish we had one of these in the central coast because I would be there every day! In the mean time I will just try to replicate that amazing clam pie with the fresh shucked little neck clams.
