Back in early spring, Neapolitan Express hit the NYC streets to significant fanfare. Due to the food truck being powered by compressed gas, Mayor Bloomberg and other luminaries held a press conference touting the “green” bonafides of the truck.
Of course, that wouldn’t matter much if the pizza sucked, but Neapolitan Express went on to become a Vendy Award Finalist in the Rookie of the Year category.
We checked out most of their offerings early on, but Neapolitan Express recently came out with a few new menu items. Top of the list (for us) was the “a diavolo” pizza.
Students of Latin (or any of the romance languages) will recognize “a diavolo” as “of the devil”, or in this case The Devil’s Pizza – Bwaaahaaahaah!
In culinary terms, this usually refers to a spicy tomato sauce, but maybe in his case they were referencing the price. This pizza cost $13.07 after tax!
