Cheap Eats 2011: Pete's New Haven Style Apizza - Tenleytown

The New Haven-style pies--these aren't the eight-inchers crafted in artisanal pizzerias--sport locally sourced ingredients and benefit from an attention to detail evident in crispy-chewy crusts, zesty sauce, and fresh toppings. Order a whole pie--our favorite is the garlicky white clam--or by the slice, which we like topped with sausage, mushrooms, and garlic. The Sorbillo's Original, a turnover stuffed with cured meats, ricotta, and tomato sauce, is filling and flavor-packed. Seasonal antipasti are as healthy as they are tasty and have included artful creations such as an earthy truffled asparagus and a bright fennel-frisée-and-grapefruit salad.

Also good: Vegetarian Sorbillo; crispy goat-cheese salad; fried-eggplant pizza; strawberry-filled cannoli; house-made iced-tea-and-lemon sorbetto.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
