New Haven Pizza Restaurant Will Open 2 Massachusetts Locations
In 2015, Frank Pepe’s brought their New Haven style pizza to the Bay State. Now, another legendary pizza restaurant is planning on expanding, with two locations opening in Massachusetts soon.
First opening their doors in 1938, Sally’s Apizza is a popular blend of tradition and authentic flavors. “Famous for our distinctive tomato sauce and chewy, crispy crust with an iconic char, Sally’s is loved by pizza fans from around the world,” Sally’s says. In fact, their initial establishment in New Haven still looks very similar to how it did 90 years ago. They use the coal-fired oven to perfectly cook their pies.
What’s Sally’s trick?
A standard Sally’s pizza uses its homemade tomato sauce. The fresh mozzarella cheese is sliced thin over the top. Then, your choice of toppings finish off the preparations before the hand-crafted pie is placed in the oven. The coal-fired oven balances the crust, where it is both chewy and crispy. The bottom and edges are laced with a subtle char, which are the lightly burnt spots from the radiating heat of the high oven.
Great, But Where In Massachusetts Will Sally’s Be?
One Sally’s Apizza is planned to open this year. The second is slated for 2024. Woburn will be the site of their first Massachusetts restaurant. It will be near Surf Seafood in Woburn Village. A Shake Shack, Cava and Crumbl Cookie are also in the area. Next, Sally Apizza plans to open in the Boston Seaport next year.
Sally’s development plans include a big push to bring their famous pies to more locations along the east coast. They now have three Connecticut locations, with plans to open three more in addition to Woburn this year.
If you are wondering what the Barstool review scored Sally’s, how about a 9.2? You can follow their official Instagram page for updates on when this new pizza restaurant will be opening in Massachusetts (or for mouth-watering images of their pepperoni and sausage pizza).
