If you want to discuss the loaded topic of America's best pizza with any authority, you've got to make a pilgrimage to this legendary New Haven spot. What should you order at this checklist destination? Two words: clam pie. This is a Northeastern pizza genre unto its own, and Pepe's is the best of them all — freshly-shucked, briny littleneck clams, an intense dose of garlic, olive oil, oregano, and grated cheese atop a charcoal-colored crust. The advanced move? Clam pie with bacon. Just expect to wait in line if you get there after 11:30 a.m. on a weekend.  — Maryse Chevriere, 2/17/2011

Best pizza fed 4 for 22 bucks and left full. Parking is a little bit if an issue, weekends get here early will be crowded but worth it.

Don't expect a cracker-thin crust — it's chewy. And the white clam pie is really all that. Don’t miss it.

I have to admit...I am absolutely Addicted to this pizza...if I were on death row this would be my last meal request!

FYI: Pepe's, where the pizza is as good as the best of New Haven, doesn't do slices. A medium clam pizza, slathered in garlic and oregano, feeds two and costs $19.50.

Don't expect to come on Saturday night at 6pm and not wait. If you're coming for the first time, try an off day or time to get in quickly. Small and medium pie are your best bet for crispiness. I'm
