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.


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


The restaurant was purchased for $500 in 1938 by Filomena Pepe Consiglio, sister of Frank Pepe, who was the owner of Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana, another Wooster Street pizza restaurant.[2] Sal Consiglio, a son of Filomena, ran it until his death in May 1989.[3] His wife Flo died in September 2012.[4] Their children Richard and Robert still operate the restaurant,[5] although they sold it in December 2017.[6]
