Pepe's named best pizza in Connecticut

Food Network Magazine has named Frank Pepe's white clam pizza as the best pizza in the state.

The editors made their choice as part of its "50 states, 50 pizzas" challenge.

The magazine said it was hard to pick a number one, but cited the pizzeria's 86-year history and the fact that the signature pie has spawned numerous spinoffs.

The original Frank Pepe's is in New Haven but has five other restaurants in the region including one in Fairfield.
