Ride along with Roadfood.com's Michael Stern as he visits Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in New Haven, Connecticut, in this exclusive Serious Eats video. Pepe's, which has been making coal-oven pizza since 1925, invented the white clam pie, onto which fresh clams are shucked. It might sound a bit odd, but trust us, it's some serious eats.

ABOUT JANE AND MICHAEL STERN
Jane and Michael Stern have written numerous books on road food; write the monthly column "Two for the Road" in Gourmet magazine; and run the website Roadfood.com, a review forum for one-of-a-kind places like Pepe's. We like Jane and Michael because their hunger for offbeat roadside eats knows no limit. Through their books and website, they've made it easy for the rest of us to find serious local eats, whether as a pit stop on a road trip or as destination in its own right.
