No pics on their web site. How is it baked? They wood-firing or coal-firing?
I have had pizza at 2 Amys and Pizzeria Paradisio (Dupont Circle) and Mangino's in Burke, VA. How do they compare?
Neither. They use gas. Apparently, coal-fired ovens are banned by most municipalities (including Washington, DC and New Haven), with some older establishments "grandfathered" in. Of course, Pete's claims that the heat source isn't the most important factor in determining what is, and isn't, a true "New Haven-style" pizza. http://www.petesapizza.com/vision2.html
As for how it compares to the very good pies served at 2 Amys and Pizzeria Paradiso (I haven't been to Mangino's), I prefer Pete's because the toppings, though sparingly applied, are spread closer to the edges of the pie than is generally the case at 2 Amys or Pizzeria Paradiso. Also, on my one visit to 2 Amys, the crust was blistered and blackened more than I would have preferred, and the noise level at dinner time was off the charts.
Regardless of the heat source used, its darn good (if somewhat expensive) pizza. I was just wondering if it's truly comparable to New Haven's best, as its name (Pete's New Haven Style Apizza) implies.
