"Apizza" isn't just pizza with an extra letter; it's a style of pizza (descended from Neapolitan) that originated from Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in New Haven, CT. The first iteration of the pie (still popular today) features a thin crust with tomato sauce and grated Pecorino Romano cheese; mozzarella is an extra. The shop's second variation on this style, the white clam pie, has become so popular it's the signature pie in many pizzerias across the state.
