Luckily, Pepe's has expanded to several location in the past few years and the Fairfield location is minutes from my parents' house. My brother talked us into braving the post-blizzard roads to pick up some Pepe's on our last night in CT.

My brother's favorite: Bacon and Onion
Pepe's pies offer the perfect mix of thin, charred crust, just enough tomato sauce, and fresh salty cheese. Tossing on some bacon and roasted onions only helps. The pies also hold up well when you get them for takeout, and they also reheat well the next day. Really, really fine pizza that I wish I could eat more than just a couple of times each year.
