In a word,
The Perfect Food.
Ok, that's three words.
Food that's fast, hot, saucy,
crispy, salty, spicy, cheesy
dream food you can eat
with your hands,
No Utensils Required!
(picnics in the park people!)
And the left overs are good cold
or from a toaster oven
(no, not a microwave)
What is New Haven Style Pizza?
Let's just assume you crawled out
from under some Dominos or
Papa Johns Box.
N'aven Style Apizza
((N'aven is how you say
New Haven, Not
Typically, it has a thin crust,
some say burnt, and sometimes
cooked in a coal-fired oven.
However, some of your best
N"aven ah-beetz can come
from your regular pizza ovens.
The key is HEAT!
Second Generation owner Pat, took
over from his father a few years back.
Ernie, would only sell the business
to his son if he did not divulge his
prized recipe for his dough and
keep his strict standards of
food quality and freshness.
On a handshake, Ernie ensured that
his legacy would be passed on.
Poor Pat has been on duty
everyday when they are open!
(Nobody else can make the dough!)
Every pie is crafted as a
work of art.
Holy Hanami Heaven!
Pepperoni n Garlic
Every pie is made to order.
Like pan roasted fresh garlic & broccoli rabe
and house made sausage.
