Where does "apizza" come from?

Mark Lee | Aug 4, 2001 03:16 PM

I know that there have been a number of previous threads comparing and contrasting the various "apizzas" in and around New Haven, but my question is a simpler one: where did all the New Haven joints get "apizza" as opposed to the more typical "pizza" seen everywhere else in the country? Is it a Neapolitan dialect peculiarity or something like that? My Yalie friend wasn't able to tell me, so I figured I'd ask the Chowhound braintrust.
