The ‘Best Pizza in America’ Is Also Served in Danbury
Pizza is a very subjective food. Everyone has their favorite type and favorite place to get that pizza, but one thing that everyone in the entire country agrees with is that there's one place in Connecticut that has the best pizza in America.
Over the last six years, the dailymeal.com has conducted a national survey to find who's got the best pizza in America, and once again this year Frank Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana is the number one pizza in the entire country.
This year, the Daily Meal surveyed over 900 places all over the U.S. to try and find out which place people liked the most, and Pepe's returned to the #1 spot after dropping to #3 last year.
Now the Pepe's that garnered the most votes in the recent Top 101 Pizza's in America was the original Pepe's in New Haven, but you can also sink your teeth into one of these fantastic pizza's at Pepe's right here in Danbury on Federal Road.
The survey was conducted by chefs, restaurant critics, bloggers, writers, and just plain pizza authorities, and they all agreed that Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana is hands down the best.
Pepe's first started serving wood fired oven pizza back in 1925 in New Haven. Since then, a number of locations have opened up across Connecticut, including Pepe's Danbury location on Federal Road. Pepe's also has a location in New York, and one in Boston.
Here's a rare look at Frank Pepe hard at work during the early days:
There were also seven other Connecticut Pizza places listed in the Top 101, most of those also located in New Haven. New York had 35 pizza locations on the list this year.
So now you've tried the rest, so stop into Pepe's and try the best.
