Sally's Apizza is a famed pizzeria in the Wooster Square neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut. It, along with its neighbor Pepe's, is often cited by aficionados in debates over the world's best pizza.

Fare[edit]

Sally's serves New Haven-style thin-crust apizza, which is baked in coal-fired brick ovens. By default, a New Haven pizza is a "plain" pizza topped with only tomato sauce, garlic, and hard cheeses. Sally's is a small restaurant, and often, patrons must wait in line, sometimes for hours.

History[edit]

The restaurant was opened in April 1938 by Salvatore Consiglio, nephew of Frank Pepe, who was the owner of Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana, another Wooster Street pizza restaurant.[1] Sal Consiglio ran it until his death in May 1989.[2] His wife Flo died in September 2012.[3] Their children Richard, Robert, and Ruth still operate the restaurant.[4]
