Can you say "Game, set, match"?
I can say "game, set, PUKE". Seriously, you call that pizza??? Sorry, but clam just shouldnt go on pizza. In fact, its inventor should be tried and then drawn and quartered just for thinking of that sacreligious crap! That junk in your photos could be/should be served at the namby-pamby CPK with all their other CRAP pizzas, too!

The more I look at the pics, the more that first pizza looks like a severely burnt $3 Wal-Mart Special pizza. If the waiter brought that out to me, he'd be wearing it, and Id be laughing alllllll the way back to Chicago.

You nailed it right on the head when you used the word "SACRILEGE". That's what that so-called "New Haven style" pizza really is, IT'S SACRILEGIOUS! And those pizza-makers, and pizza-lovers, would be dealt with 1920's style(taken for a little ride) here in CHI. LOL LOL

I find it funny that Chicagoans find the need to attack New Haven style pizza...perhaps you've finally found a smaller city to pick on since you have been a wannabe NY city lap dog since the creation of this country.

Or your just jealous or clueless.

Perhaps all three.

Here is the reality. You've probably never had fresh clams dug a few hours prior, cooked properly and are thinking of fishy tasting rubber bands...that's what most people think. Not so.

Think of the most tender, juicy piece of chicken you can find with a little twist of flavor and you got it. Fresh properly prepared clams are heavenly.

This is also New England...New Haven is a shoreline city...duh. Pepe's has had more presidents and celebrities eat there than Chicago has produced and it aint because it makes people "puke".

Seriously.

When in the sometimes two hour wait for pizza at Pepe's you'll find you are standing in line with people who have driven sometimes 3-4 hours away just to get the pie. Like or hate the pizza, it's a fact. What part of that you don't get is beyond me.

As for burning the crust, I'll forgive your lack of culinary knowledge on what happens to wheat flour when mildy burnt like that...you can't replace that flavor by piling on more crap to disguise the lack of a proper crust...ala a three foot thick pizza.

In Italy (Which I am fist generation of and have family still), it's about using what's A. Local (ala clams) B. Fresh and C. Keeping it simple. All the things I don't see in your "Italian" pizza but Pepe's contains.

But what do I know...
