The one and only Pepe’s pizza. Tasted the original the seasonal the clam pie and clam w cheese. Wow they all stood up and announced their presence w authority!! This score is for the original 1/2 and it had a less of a char than Sally’s but no where the flavor or perfection that Sally’s brings to the table. Now that clam pie is just nothing that anyone can compare too and stands alone as one of the best flavored pizzas in America . Plain champions goes to Sally’s unique pie goes to Pepe. Can’t go wrong .

Original is better than the off shoots, but not much, tied with angelos on 57th street for my favorite for the best

Having read about this type of Pizza I have to say it lived up to expectations. Worth the trip

Finished off our Pizza Trinity tour today at Frank Pepe’s! We had the original tomato pie, the mootz, and the white clam. Pizza was excellent and the staff was very friendly and made our experience great. The original tomato pie was very, very good. Flavor of the sauce was awesome! I can see why New Haven is the pizza capital of the USA!!

Unfortunately, this slice was a little cold at the time I received it, and I have full confidence that my score would be at least one point higher if I got it fresh. Crust has crazy potential, but it felt like the amount of sauce was kind of lacking.

First stop on the New Haven pizza circuit this weekend. Absolute banger. Wife says “really enjoyed the tomatoes - FRESH!”

Coal fire perfect. Cheese and tomato balance with a salty crust. If you like apizza style, this is the one in New Haven.

I have been to Frank Pepe’s several times. It is one of if not the best pizzas I have ever had. Better cheese to sauce ratio than Sally’s with great crust, charred just right. Make the pilgrimage to pizza heaven…in New Haven.
