The Birth of Pepe’s Clam Pie

Gary Bimonte, co-owner of Pepe’s and grandson of Frank Pepe, relates the story of how the clam pizza was invented.

This is the origianl clam pizza. While other pizzerias may serve a clam pizza, there is no comparison.

The clam pizza is often imitated but never duplicated. Incredible in it’s taste and and simplicity.

Legends of Pizza, Volume 3: Evelyn Sloman

I’m very excited to share with you Part of Legends of Pizza Volume 3 Part 1.

These interviews were conducted a while ago. I had started to edit them and was ready to release Legends of Pizza Volume 3.

I was very excited about all of the knowledge that Evelyn brought to the world of pizza.

Then disaster struck: my hard drive crashed, leaving me with nothing but digital dust of an incredible conversation with Evelyn Sloman.

Recently after spending hundreds of dollars, I was able to recover most of the files from my hard drive. Luckily, I could save parts of the original mp3’s of the Evelyn Sloman interview

 I was able to piece together parts of the interview and hope to release the rest of Legends of Pizza Volume 3.
