This is Pepe's best pie. Why? Well it takes the Tomato Pie and adds basil and fresh mozzarella on top of the pecorino and naturally sweet tomatoes and oregano. I'm a flavor above every else guy. I know other people are crispiness/crunchiness above all guy, that's just one good factor to a pie for me. I just like it well done, a bit of char, and crispy enough to hold up. Sauce you a get medium chunky/pasty umami and naturally sweet sauce. One of the best I've had. I believe it's a Stanislas 7/11 and Crushed Tomatoes mix they Mill themselves. One of the best. I'm a fan of simmered sauces on pies too. But you don't need a seasoned or simmered sauce if you pick the right tomatoes. And Pepe's does here. Fresh mozzarella was good. Just wish there was a bit more, though the pecorino is perfect with it. It's a margherita though, you can't dock any big points for that. Pepe's doesn't make my top crust. But it fits perfect to their pies and is necessary. I do like light and air crusts the best. But I do like the small end crust. But this is a great pie. I think the only ones that will surpass it are the world class ones you can find in NYC from the oldest pizzerias, Di Fara's, or the "nice" pizza in Italy, and big cities around the world.

Not sure where these 9s came from, but definitely not up there. Decent pizza nothing crazy, best part would be the cheese. First and last time.

Outstanding pizza. No flop. We got the small pie. Delicious tangy semi sweet red sauce. Wafts of coal charred dough

Not as thin as I anticipated, but still light and airy. Crust had notable flavor with a fine balance of sauce to cheese ratio.

I can’t wait to slam a cold slice down in a few moments…but my rating is going to be off of our fresh pizza pie today at 1:25 pm. REALLY GOOD. NOT A 9. And darn, I wanted it to be. Just way too much galoppy flop. Galoppy flop is “way too much flop” when it doesn’t have to be…it brick oven for Pete’s sake… The story is they reconstruct these “Brick Ovens” but human nature takes over over time I’m sure. No pizza can be the same. And this one has a great crust, a great taste; light and tangy smooth in the sauce, cheese great, GREASE there but perfectly hidden (it does NOT wreck the taste); thin and subtly bubbly….crust. Really good. Highest score yet for me. But no Shangri-La… A 9 is out there? Is it Sally’s❓

Great Pizza but I am never coming here again. My skin has been burned but my passion for pizza has never been higher.

Crust is best ever. It needs to be dipped in something in bites with no cheese or sauce. Freshness jumps out. The overall preparation is beyond incredible. Drove four hours from Philly. Inappropriately kissed chef on the month and was banned .

Got the margarita pie, as well as the cheese pie. Was pretty good, sauce had a nice tang to it. Towards the top of Danbury Pizzerias.

OBEKTR: Small pie half cheese half meatball and garlic. Great char and charcoal flavor. A little loose on the top. Sauce and sharp flavor cheese are fantastic. A little tighter on the top and it might be in the 9s. That’s a review.
