New Haven pizza
« on: March 09, 2005, 05:12:39 PM »
I have always been intrigued with the whole New Haven pizza "thing".  All these claims about having the best pizza and the reputation of the different restaurants.  Anyway, I recently came across some links and pictures of these pizzas and the places that make them and if anybody would appreciate this stuff, this forum would.  To me, these pizzas look a little too busy for my tastes.  I just don't enjoy all the toppings.  Give me a plain cheese pie any day.

Very nice pictures. I have often wondered what their pizza really looked like. Now I know.
Thanks

I went to college in New Haven. In fact my dorm room overlooked Naples Pizza.  God I'd kill for a place like that in Atlanta.   Think of all the hard work I'd be saving myself. I'm only doing this because there's zero here in the boondocks of Georgia.

The New Haven thing is definitely a well done pizza, especially Pepe's or Modern.  I grew up in Pittsburgh with very flavorfull pies that were just slightly crisper than your average new York street pizza.  Any time I am in New Haven, I ask for my pies "light baked".  All of the pizzarias there have no problem with this, and for my taste they turn out perfect that way. Still crisp, but not black. I even hear people in line at Pepe's, or Sally's asking for well done.  Now that is crazy!

Does anyone know what brand of cheese Pepe's is using since they switched from Calabro?
