Allergy Shmallergy

Simplifying life for families with food allergies.

New Haven Has Arrived in Virginia! April 28, 2011

Spur of the moment, we found ourselves at Pete’s New Haven Style Pizza in Clarendon the other night.  This is their latest location to open in the DC area.  A place, I’ve been dying to try for years but never managed to get to.  And, I’m happy to report:  Pete did NOT disappoint! 

Here’s the skinny:

  • Pete’s serves a variety of pizza as well as a few delicious appetizers, salad, pasta and panini. 


  • Their pizza crust was not only safe for my dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut, sesame seed allergic son, but also delicious!


  • They serve gluten-free pizza should you be avoiding wheat as well as soy cheese pizza should you be avoiding dairy.   That’s pretty exciting if you’re dealing with multiple allergies.


  • Refreshingly, the pizza is sold both by the slice and the pie and comes in all kinds of interesting mouth-watering varieties.


  • Pete’s also serves desserts made in-house – including sorbet!  This was HUGE news as gelato typically contains dairy and sometimes nuts.  They have one scooper per flavor and I was told that if ever a scooper needs to be used for another flavor, it must first be thoroughly washed.  That’s better than you get at Baskin Robbins!


The atmosphere was perfect for kids and allergy-aware.  I, personally, can’t wait to go back!
