NEW HAVEN – “Alexander wept. I refuse to.” So begins a cryptic press statement released by the reclusive pizza magnate Frank Pepe early Thursday morning. The statement, delivered pre-dawn by private courier to a number of local media outlets, continues, “I’ve spent my life with pizza as my dominion. I will not close my eyes and pretend there is nothing left to conquer. I will not wallow on my throne. The time has come for stromboli.
“Effective immediately, I will cease production of any and all apizza pies, at all of my restaurant locations. I have nothing left to prove. From now on, I focus on stromboli.
Neither Pepe nor any of this representatives returned requests for comment on this article, though a visit to the Pepe’s website revealed an updated menu (screenshot below).
