The Original Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana
White Clam Pizza

Pepe’s has two historic claims to fame. The founder, Frank Pepe, introduced thin crust, Neapolitan style pizza to New Haven in 1925, and he was the first to create the now ubiquitous white clam pie. Still, it had been a long time since I stood in line at the storefront on Wooster Street. With so much great pizza available, it hardly seemed worth it. And I was so ready to dismiss this venerable pie. After all, with seven locations, it’s hardly a mom-and-pop shop anymore. Was the quality up to snuff? YES! It was Pepe's white clam pie with mozzarella, garlic, oregano, and a swirl of olive oil that helped put his business on the map.
