Growing up in New Haven, I came to love and appreciate coal fired brick oven pizza at Sally’s, Modern, and Pepe’s as a major foundation of my city’s food identity. The pizza is historic, critically acclaimed, but most of all, delicious. It’s always worth the wait and makes our city stand out amongst the rest.
The white clam pizza at Pepe’s has a perfectly charred and erect crust when you take to the slice away from the pizza pie and fold it in mid air. When folded, this flavorful crust deliciously bundles up the littleneck clams, garlic, oregano, and grated Pecorino Romano cheese when it enters your mouth. So fresh, so pure, and so New Haven!
After high school, I brought my enthusiasm for New Haven pizza into many conversations I had with outsiders in college at Clark University in Worcester, Mass. I felt they needed to hear the truth, so if they ever wanted to have the best pizza, they knew where to go.
