I loved everything about yesterday to pizzas. 8 hours, 13 pizzas, 4 restaurants and 10,000 steps later and I have never been in such a good food coma! Today I’m going to start by sharing about our first stop, the original @frankpepepizza . This was the only pizza place on the tour that I had been to before. Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is known everywhere and in my opinion, it really lives up to all of the hype. I couldn’t believe the number of people who were already in there devouring pies at 10:45 am on a Sunday. That’s the way to do it if you want to skip the lines I guess! 🍕 The first pizza was the tomato pie without mozzarella. When it comes to pizza, I’m usually all about the cheese but I have to admit, I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would. Don’t knock it til ya try it, right? 🍕🥦 The next pizza was a white pizza with broccoli, mozzarella & onions. Again when it comes to pizza I usually like it loaded with meat, not veggies. However, the broccoli was cooked just right and the onions added just the right amount of flavor. Probably my second favorite pizza from Pepe’s! 🍕There is something about a good ole classic original cheese pizza. The piping hot stretchy mozzarella and the crisp thin crust made for the perfect slice. They seriously know what they’re doing! 🍕 Last but not least and my favorite from Pepe’s was their specialty White Clam Pizza. This was topped with fresh clams, grated cheese, olive oil and fresh garlic and oregano. This was the pizza we devoured the quickest by far. I wish I could eat this one over and over again. This clam pizza for breakfast is my new favorite.
A special thank you to Colin from @tasteofnewhaven for the leading the best and only pizza tour I’ve ever been on. Colin had so much knowledge and history to share about New Haven and their famous apizza! Another big thank you to @thehangryitaliangirl for organizing and hosting the event! I will be posting about the three other pizza places we tried throughout the week! Stay tuned to see the rest of the amazing pizzas we were so lucky to have! #isabellesplate
