New Haven Pizza Named Best In America

CBS New York

New York may be known for its pizza, but it’s a pie from New Haven, Conn. that takes home the prize as Best Pizza in America.

The website The Daily Meal compiled a list of the top 101 pizzas in the nation, drawing on votes from what it describes as 46 American chefs, restaurant critics, bloggers, writers and “pizza authorities.”

While New York grabbed the most slots, 30 in all, it was Frank Pepe’s in New Haven that topped the list with its white clam pizza, made with clams, grated parmesan, olive oil, garlic and oregano.

Frank Pepe’s co-owner Francis Rosselli said it’s not the first time the restaurant has been recognized for its pies.

“Those accolades are always welcome, we appreciate it them very much,” he told 1010 WINS. “We certainly feel honored every time that happens.”

Also on the list:

7. The tomato pie from Sally’s Apizza in New Haven, Conn.

11. The Italian Bomb pizza from Modern Apizza in New Haven, Conn.
