Less is more. So Frank Pepe's Apizza. I've had two pies from their Yonkers location: the Tomatoe Pie with Mozzarella and the Fresh Tomatoe Pie (July-Sep only, both 7.6s there)—I like this better than both. Lemme back up a sec though, I had this right after Brewport in Bridgeport, CT. It's right off of I-95 like Pepe's. That was good. But it was a great pizza day when I got this and it was even *better*. And you think, how could a pie with just sauce, olive oil, and grated pecorino be better than most pizza with mozzerella? First, I'm a sauce guy. If you are too, you will love it's a lightly chunky and balanced between naturally sweet and acidic. That's perfect for me. It some how doesn't even need garlic, oregano, or basil and yet it's still good. Probably only a pinch of salt is in there. Cheese? Perfectly accompanied the sauce, adding a bit of salt and hint of funk. You can barely see the hard grated pecorino on there but it's enough. And even though I took a takeaway cup of grated pecorino (plus oregano and garlic cups) I didn't need it. Crust? As opposed to being thin like a crispy fresh pita, like Brewport, this was crispy yet had a rise to it while being thin. It's that right balance between crunchy and yet airy and pliable. Plus it's charred but not over charred. I've had two other all sauce pies. One at Arthur Avenue Wood Fired and one at my favorite place near me, Pizzeria Baci's. This was easily better than the others and, frankly, blows them out of the water. This is the way to do a tomato pie. Retire the rest.

Smells good. A little flop but that’s fine for a Neapolitan style railroad pizza. Lots of bubbles in crus. Gotta like that. One bite everyone knows the rules!

First, the crust…absolutely the best crest I have ever have on any pizza. Great flavor and my only critique is that the crisp of the crust didn’t match the body of the pie. However, really good overall!

One of the joys I got during the summer of 2020, was stopping at Pepe’s after bowling league every week. My team and I made the trek from Bayside, Queens once a week for league and for Pepe’s. Each of us getting our own pie. This pizza reminds me so much of one of my favorite places in NY, John’s on Bleecker. The perfect amount of sauce, cheese and crispness. Everything about this pizza is excellent.

Great pie! You’re gonna want to try this signature pie. One of the best in the area. Nice crisp with lots flavor.

Really greasey. Chewy in the middle and really crisp at the crust. Not as good as New Haven but leagues ahead of most others

Very good pizza. Sauce not quite as tangy as I expected, but the crust was great and the cheese was great too. I’d imagine the original in New Haven is probably better.

Frank Pepe Pizzeria is an experience to be had. The KING of New Haven style Apizza and CHAMPION of all Pizza spots. From the original in New Haven, Mohegan Sun, Fairfield and on...the crust, cheese, sauce, all combine together to make the best pizza in the country. My only gripe with them is consistency. Every now and then I’ll have a pie with a little too much cheese for my liking. However when it’s made right....it’s the GOAT.
