Took the trip from Long Island to New Haven. Waited out in the cold for about an hour. It was worth every frigid moment. Absolute heaven. Also tried the clam pizza with bacon and hot peppers. Yowza it was good.

Sally’s is the best clam white pie in New Haven, and anyone who disagrees has a gutter pallet that can’t be trusted to distinguish a fudgsicle from literal dog shit. Out-of-towners may balk when they first see the charred crust, but that is just the ignorance urging you from venting into the mist of the unknown and exploring what is essentially the pizza equivalent of burnt ends. Sally’s is tradition, and a brick oven that has been operating for a near-century cannot be replicated. Fellow pizza connoisseurs, I assure you that no matter what mood you’re in, a Sally’s pie will immediately improve it: - Happy - Stoned - Sobbing uncontrollably for days after a breakup - Shoving a dead hooker into your trunk - Kicking a sick cat - Bullying the elderly - Warding off the dark voices in your head - Mid-afternoon panic attacks in the office bathroom - Stealing your neighbor’s disability checks - Drunk And for God’s sake, its “ah-beetz.” Get that normie “pizza” nonsense outta my face. RUNNER UP PIE: Sausage, peppers, and onions

Was very good but I don’t know if I can get behind a 9 or above rating.

So I realized Dave liked charred thin pizzas. And hes entitled to it but this particular pie is overrated. Its not bad but the hype of New Haven having the best pizza in America is an outright lie. Also, not sure who cuts their slices but they dont have any idea how to cut slices.

Good pizza but didn't live up to the hype don't know how people and Dave gave this a 9.2 but hey to each his own but overall not worth the travel

Didn’t disappoint. Tasted so fresh. Sauce stands out like it was made same day. Perfect amount of cheese and sauce. Very easy to split with one other person. I’m seeing why people take a bite of the front and then the crust at the back. You gotta give yourself some sauce with the end of the crust otherwise it kinda turns into eating a bunch of charred crust by itself. Very unique style.

Excellent pizza, even though I arrived a bit late and it was a little cold. Still, the place lives up to the hype too.

100% as advertised. Perfect crust, sauce amazing. Online ordering is a godsend and they had handed to me at the exact minute I requested it earlier in the day. Sally’s is in my all time top 3 and worth the visit any time you’re in New Haven.

The charred crust from the hot coal oven and the perfectly balanced sauce to cheese ratio takes this pie to a whole other level. We drove all the way from Maryland, Dave and all of the staff there were some of the most hospitable people I’ve ever met. The entire experience was just as good as the pizza. Simply amazing. Can’t wait to come back!

Amazing Sauce and Crust. Coal charred bits are sooo good. Dave and the staff are even better than the pie! They made us feel like family!

Delicious pizza ! Best to get it in restaurant fresh from the oven and the exactly right amount of char for my taste 👍🏻

8.1. the pizza is a little overrated. as i see dave and others put it in the 9s. i don’t like the burnt char crust and it’s just a little too thin for me. it’s like a big bar pie. it looks amazing but i need a little more dough still pretty solid overall

The crust was good, but Santillo's is better..I just thought the sauce was way too bland and the cheese was ehh.
