Daily Slice: Pete's New Haven Style Apizza in Washington DC
Daily Slice gives a quick snapshot each weekday of a different slice or pie that the folks at the Serious Eats empire have enjoyed lately.
I'm definitely doing it wrong. Having my first taste of New Haven style Apizza in Washington D.C. is sort of like trying your first Half-Smoke in Connecticut. While I can't say if Pete's is comparable to the real thing, I can definitely tell you it's a damn fine slice of pizza. The Margherita has a thin crisp crust, a light layer of flavorful sauce, and just the right amount of oozing mozzarella and chopped fresh basil.
The sausage pie was a little sloppier, but definitely still satisfying, especially with the crumbled knobs of fennel sausage. Not life-changing, or all that different from other thin-crust pizza I've had, but definitely a solid slice that made me seriously think about booking a trip to Connecticut.
