Frank Pepe - Clam Pizza

White Clam Pizza

- fresh clams, grated cheese, olive oil, fresh garlic and oregano


This was a well-made pie - clams were chewy just enough. Generally speaking, clams could be a little too bitter for some - so this pies is mostly for grown-ups.


Pepe’s signature pizza, the White Clam Pizza, was most likely an organic inspiration by Frank Pepe; an idea born from the fact that Pepe’s also served raw little neck clams from Rhode Island, on the half shell, as an appetizer. This development occurred around the mid 1960’s and gradually became popular through the past 40 years.
