“The Pizza Show:New Haven” on Munchies and hosted by Frank Pinello, who had never been to New Haven. Mr Pinello visited from Brooklyn to see how New Haven pizza stacked up against New York Pizza. According to Frank, he grew up thinking that ” New York had the best pizza. You’ve been told that your whole life. There is no way there would be another city that has the same culture that we do, but they do.”
Mr. Pinello had the chance to dig deep into the New Haven pizza culture, not only by trying pizza from around the area, but also by talking with people like Mayor John DeStefano Jr., Colin M. Caplan who is working on a book about chronicling New Haven and American history through pizza as well as Gary Bimonte, Frank Pepe’s Grandson.
