A Hudson Valley pizzeria that has been named the best in the U.S. just made a major expansion.

The Daily Meal recently released a list of "The 101 Best Pizzas in America." A pizzeria with a location in the Mid-Hudson Region was named the best in all of America.

Westchester County, Pizzeria Named Best In United States


The website claims the best slice in America can be found at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana. Frank Pepe Pizzeria has a Hudson Valley location in Westchester County.

To come up with its list, The Daily Meal says it "used internal expertise, scoured Yelp and other review sites, looked at coverage by local journalists and gathered suggestions from readers."

In order to make the list, a pizzeria's pie must be "saucy, cheesy slices of heaven with a doughy-yet-crispy crust and a nice flop; along with a respectable amount of grease."


Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is based out of Connecticut. It has many locations in Connecticut including in Danbury, Fairfield, West Hartford and New Haven.

"Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana is a household name for pizza buffs everywhere. The New Haven-based pizzeria is famous for its signature coal-fired White Clam Pizza featuring fresh clams, grated pecorino romano, garlic, oregano and olive oil. Get a taste at any location in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York. Not only is Frank Pepe’s the top pizza destination in the country, but it’s also one of the greatest old-school restaurants of all time," The Daily Meal writes while naming Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana as the best pizza in America.
