The is the worst looking pizza that I have ever seen. A pizza shouldn't look as if someone left it the oven too long.

When the warden asks us what we want for our last meal, this is it: Pepe's white clam pizza.

One of Pepe's great combos: roasted red peppers and pepperoni. The peppers, roasted in house, are fresh and full-flavored; the thick disks of pepperoni pack spicy wallop.

This incredibly simple tomato pie should be ordered as often as possible, just to enjoy the sauce-and-crust combination.

I've heard much praise over the years for this particular pizza (white clam) and it far exceeded my expectations.  I walked away trying to understand why more pizzerias don't make them this good.  That crust still haunts me three months later.

The texture of a white clam pizza is almost as wonderful as the taste. Note the tender clams, the soft-cooked bits of garlic, the chewy crust .... ah, heaven!

A very dry, crisp, and refreshing lemon soda, my favorite thus far of the Foxon Park line of drinks.

Every time I order the famous white clam pie, I realize that I really don’t want to have to do without it—ever.

Doing the same thing for over 85 years and the commitment to doing it right show in each pie.

The famous coal-burning Frank Pepe's oven from 1925.

My friend Doug and I finally made it here in July of 2011.  Pepe's has been on my short list of must-try places for quite a few years.

Part of the experience of a meal at Pepe's is waiting -- first out in the street for a table, then at the table for the pizza to arrive.  By the time you get it, your tastebuds are screaming in desperation.
