Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza has four locations including in Clarendon, Silver Spring, Friendship Heights and Columbia Heights, but this review is for the Columbia Heights location at 1400 Irving Street NW. Despite the fact that New Haven is a crappy city, it is known for excellent pizza. The pizza (apizza?) at Pete’s is definitely a solid cut above normal. For starters, the crust is crispy and slightly charred on the bottom and as a New Yorker, I consider this the mark of a high-quality pizza. In addition, their tomato sauce is fresh-tasting and is light and slightly sweet, as it should be. There could have been a bit more sauce in the sauce to cheese ratio, however. However, they are best-known for their white pizza with clams, which is a New Haven specialty. It is tasty and garlicky and definitely not something you’re likely to find at any other pizza place in the area. A huge plus is that their slices are only $2 after 9 pm on weekends, which makes for a delicious and cheap late dinner option. Be aware that this a casual pizza place, not a Lady and the Tramp-style checkered table cloth romantic option. They do serve wine and beer, though their wine by the glass is a bit pricey for a pizza place (no reds under $7).
