A trip to Pepe’s

On the way back from a beach weekend in Rhode Island, my friends and I decided we should stop at the legendary Frank Pepe Pizzeria in New Haven, Conn. This place is world-renowned (among food nerds) as being the inventor of the white clam pizza, a thin-crust no-sauce affair with grated cheese, olive oil, fresh garlic and oregano. After a prior night of over-drinking and an over-long car trip, we were a bit punchy by the time we got to Pepe’s, and were not pleased to learn they were OUT OF CLAMS. However, being the troopers we were, we ordered two other “special pizzas” (circled on the menu below) and had a picnic in the rain.

Verdict? Effing phenomenal pizza.

Um, did I forget to take pictures of the pizza itself? I was not in top form.
