Disappointing Visit to Pepe’s Pizzaria

by Mike Beek on July 17, 2011

I finally made it back to Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria in New Haven CT last week…it’s been at least 10 years since I’d been there. Got to tell you I was disappointed 🙁

Crust was super crisp but had zero flavor. Pepperoni and mushroom pie toppings were very good (although they use button mushrooms and I like portobello much better), as was the fresh tasting sauce.

Their famous white clam pie was a disappointment–too salty and the garlic overpowered the clams to the point that I couldn’t taste them. My wife, who lets me know in no uncertain terms when she doesn’t like something I make (can you believe it: she prefers Iggy’s bagels to mine!), said my crust is much tastier than Pepe’s. Coincidentally, a couple of our neighbors went to Pepe’s just a day after we did, and they said the same thing.

Now, if I could just become as famous as Pepe’s…
