Please! Please! Please! White Clam Pizza

My fellow dining out companions:

I'm in dire need of a great White Clam Pizza. Given that I'm not a fan of Upper Crust - any other recommendations would be sincerely appreciated.

Many thanks, Rafi

  1. Try Figs in Beacon Hill and Charlestown.

    1. I agree, it used to be a menu item on Figs menu. But its now only an occasional special...just called both, not on the menu.

        Sweet Tomatoes in Newton (there's 2 of them - Newton Centre and West Newton) has it on their menu. Haven't tried this particular pie, but have loved all the pizzas I've gotten from there.


      2. Cafe Italia in East Boston may have one..... they used to have fantastic food (haven't been a while and make sure you go to the original not the one in the heights).

          the one in the heights doesn't exist anymore. it's now a colombian restaurant

        2. Nebo, on the edge of the North End (North Washington St.), has a pretty good one.

          1. Pizza Republic in Brookline (Coolidge Corner area) has a good clam pizza.

            1. call mangia neapolitan pizza on columbus ave for a great white clam , they also have a location in brookline village
              we get their pies being a south end resident all the time....

              1. If your'e driving through new Haven stop by pepe's. Their white clam pizza is paramount. Juicy, sweet & big , and so flavorful. It's expensive at $26 but huge. Last time I stopped by dribing from NYC and ordered two-one to eat on the way home, and another half baked one to freeze and reheat later. Well worth it.

                1. Cinderalla's in Cambridge makes a low-brow clam pizza; a good friend of mine swears by it, however, and they certainly don't shirk on quantity.

                  1. I've had a pretty good white clam pizza at Woody's grill and tap on Hemminway near the whole foods in Symphony. I believe it was white clam and bacon. I've been back for the pizza, so it passed my test. Good beers too. Its on the boylston side of the hemminway/westland ave intersection.
