The Gold Standard – Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

This is the epitome of a perfect pizza to me. The crust is thin, but firm, and slightly burned underneath. The sauce is a little chunky, but the tomatoes are delicious and almost melt in your mouth. The sauce is sweet and soft and just so delicious I am getting hungry thinking about it. I’m not even a sauce girl. The mozzarella is applied liberally. The pepperoni are thick cut and have a taste that is unrivaled by any other. Sometimes they’re a little burnt, sometimes they’re covered in cheese, sometimes they’re stacked, but 100% of the time, these pepperonis are the best you will ever have on a pizza. They cook the pizzas in a coal-fired brick oven that just adds that something extra.¬†Pepe’s, I love you.
