New Haven Pizza Guide

New Haven, CT is famous for its thin crust pizza. The first pizzaria, Pepe's in Wooster St., dates back to the 1920s. It is now opening franchises nation wide. Pepe's historic rival is Sally's, a few doors away. It is nearly as old. Sally's name was featured on pizza boxes appearing in early Doonesbury cartoons. Both places feature brick ovens which some think is key to a great thin crust.
The local paper recently featured a guide to some of the area restaurants featuring New Haven style pizza. It's worth saving for when you happen to be in the area. Be forwared: Places like Pepe's, Sally's and Modern can have long lines at times. People seem to think the pizza is worth the wait:

4. Which do you like? My family has a branch of Pepe's

and only ate there once. Not great.

Have to say if you live away... Anything makes your mouth water

6. If I have a choice I usually opt for Modern just because the

Parking situation is a little better.
We have a hotdog and burger place near us that's been around for 70 years. They serve foot longs cooked over an open flame grill in a New England style roll, charred as much as you like. Pretty darn good. I'll think of the name of the hotdog maker in a sec: Hummel's of New Haven, I think.

5. Have to say out of all CT food I miss the most is the hotdogs:)

Paid $50 in shipping to have Rosols hotdogs delivered to Texas. What they serve at Harry's in Colchester! OOTW
