Serpe's tomato pie is the real deal, as good as or maybe even better than your average Philly bakery. The dough color and soft texture are identical to the Philly-style, and slices are medium thick with a nice, fresh tasting red sauce that's sweet but not ridiculously so.
'Delaware' on Serious Eats
You never really hear that much about Delaware pizza culture outside the state, but when you do a little digging, you come up with some nuggets. What follows are the nuggets that Slice–Serious Eats readers have provided over various Delaware-based threads — along with some intel from confidential sources within the state. Enjoy!
