Frank Pepe’s is a classic pizza institution in New Haven’s Little Italy, and it has a friendly rivalry with Sally’s Pizza down the street. You’ll usually find a small crowd of tourists on the restaurant’s Wooster Street sidewalk, all waiting to try a New Haven-style apizza, which features only a thin layer of tomato sauce and parmesan cheese. Frank Pepe’s isn’t our favorite New Haven pizza spot, as the cook on the crust isn’t super consistent, and we’d rather sit through a long wait at Sally’s. Go here only if there’s an absurdly long line at Sally’s, or if you simply must try every pizza option in town.

Bar isn’t so worried about New Haven pizza traditions. Their famous mashed potato and thick-cut bacon pizza isn't your standard apizza slice, and is all the better for it.

Sally's is a longtime pizza institution, and should be your first stop for trying New Haven-style apizza.
