Growing up in New Haven my family used to go the Pepe's on Wooster Street every other week. One week it was Pepe's, the next Sally's. When I was a teenager -- driving -- I'd most often go to The Spot.
When I was in junior high school Pepe's opened a place on Whalley Avenue in Westville, where I lived, and we'd head down there after school nearly every day. My standard order was a small plain pie, which meant sauce and parmesan cheese, along with a bottle of birch beer or orange soda. That would come to a total of 45-cents. The soda was a nickel. If I was flush, I might spring for a small with mozzarella at 60-cents. And, if I was really loaded I'd get one with sausage for 80-cents. Of course a small pie then was about 14 inches across.
