Jonathan's Worldly Eats: Confessions of a Foodie - Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

JonathansWorldlyEats | Jan 5, 2010 09:58 PM

I am the fourth (possibly fifth) generation in my family to patronize this historic brick-oven pizza paradise. Even in Italy I endeavored to find a pizza on par with Pepe's and was shocked to discover that Frank has no equal. Pepe's remains unchanged from when they first opened in 1925. Paper thin charred crust cradling crushed Roma tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and maybe some fresh Italian sausage if you are feeling exotic. Do not even dream of going to Pepe's and not ordering a White Clam Pie. Pepe's signature pizza is a genius composition of freshly shucked clams and oregano - simply life-changing. Long lines form in all types of weather, all year long, so arrive early to save yourself the agony of watching others graze over their monstrous apizza pies. Pepe's is open Monday through Saturday 11:30 am to 10:00 pm and on Sunday from Noon to 10:00 pm.
